If Welker were healthy, would Edelman still be a Patriot?

    Yes.


    Whose to say he's a slot receiver? He was no receiver starting the season, he's a very smart athletic guy who picked up a position like nothing where experienced vets have failed. Guys like that usually just get better.

    Troy Brown was just a special teams player, then just a third down receiver. When we needed a starter, he stepped in and caught 100 balls.

    I'd have to say that's among the lamest, most short-sighted views I've read on a messageboard in years.

    I agree. Look at the 4th and 5th WR options on this team if Edelman weren't there, and explain to me how we'd be better off with another draft pick instead.

    Not a chance in hell of them trading him...only way they would even consider it is if they were offered a deal so lucrative that it would make the Welker and Moss trades seem even by comparison.

    I can only assume the person who thought that up had been drinking bleach.

    Please ignore him in future.

    What a bad idea from that fan! 'Our number 2 receiver is healthy, lets trade our number 3 ;)'

    It is absolutely not possible for any human being to offer that opinion and be serious. Repeat - not possible.

    Of course Edelman would be a Patriot. Who said that Edelman is going to be purely a slot receiver for the rest of his career. He is bigger and faster than Welker. The slot position just has the easier routes and allowed Edelman to contribute more immediately. I could see Edelman becoming more of a receiver like Deion Branch.

    No.

    I was arguing that if all the Patriots saw in Edelman was a Welker backup, it wouldn't have made much sense to draft him.

    I didn't even get into the fact that Edelman might be the most heavily scouted 7th-round draft pick of all time (according to Doug Martin, they had at least four different position coaches meet with him, and apparently they flew him in for a visit under the radar).

    I can confirm that a Pats fan did post this and it wasn't CT. Let's just say that challenging this poster's opinion to his face would be essentially impossible due to his "strong" personality, so I approve of laughing at him here :)
