    No worry. We'll just throw Edelman in there and be BETTER for it. :rocker:

    Probably blinded by the defense's horrific performance.

    At least we may finally be able to find out if Edelman is the next Wes Welker.

    I presume that Gisselle had nothing to do with this

    Get well soon, Wes!

    I think that a lot of us, during the second half, were focused on our rapidly improving defense...

    Is there any proof that those two aren't the same person? Has anyone ever seen Welker and Edelman side by side?

    I actually didn't notice him leaving either.

    The announcers normally note something like this. And let me say, the announcers last week for this Pats game were AWFUL so I'm not surprised that they didn't mention it at all.

    It was on a play late in the game. He caught a pass and ran up the vistors sideline and got tackled out of bounds and he got up limped for a sec and ran off not to be seen again but as he ran off on his own and the action was not stopped it would have been easy for announcers and anyone not at the game to miss.

    it was on the unplanned reverse play. He twisted his ankle on the push/tackle out of bounds in front of the jills bench.

    He then limped across teh entire field to get back to pats sideline and wasnt seen again (on the field; Not sure he went into the training room or just sat on bench at that point).

    I don't know how you could have watched the game and not seen that. They showed him limping off live and at least once on replay.(i know, you couldn't find the beer bottle opener, could you? ;))

    Not that having X-rays indicates it's bad. Normal for a sprained ankle. Mr Dr x-rayed me when I had a sprain. Just checking to verify it's not broken. Not that we'll ever know the diagnosis unless Wes suddenly joins Glass-IR Dowling. :eek:

    Speaking of silicon based life forms, wonder how Hernandez's ankle is doing?

    I don't think they did it the first time he tweaked it though..but took xrays this time around. Not sure though.


    I have broken my right ankle..and sprained my left. The sprain hurt worse than the break

    Gotta assume he is out for Sun. He participated in walk through but did not practice. Heck, Hernandex practiced last week and still didn;t play. Reiss suspects Hernandez also will not play. If these guys are out, Gronk is our only other reliable receiver although Gronk was not much of a receiver last week. With a strong outside rush, I would not be surprised if he is kept in to block this week as well.

    Edelman is great with the ball in his hands but getting it there is another story. He just looks lost at WR and I think he has stopped progressing at the position. Branch is limited physically but always knows what to do and had his best game of the year Sun., so maybe he will step up. Shiancoe can also be effective (even if he has not caught a pass for us yet). In the end, we cannot make up for the loss of Welker (few teams could). Still, it is hard to believe we are so thin at receiver after all the new faces they trotted in. With Mankins and Connolly out, the offense will be tested.

    I take that to mean that they're hopeful he'll play, and they had him there when the game plan was being installed.

    I expect a big dose of run game vs the Colts.
    Followed by a week of threads lamenting that aging Brady is no longer putting up the big #s that the fantasy jerkoffs get wood over.

    He left the game with an ankle injury.

    We've already had more than enough time to conclude that he is not the next Wes Welker.

    Pats are going to have to control the clock in this game, because lack of Welker historically = really bad news for us.

    I wouldn't expect it myself, no. Not unless the worry is so severe that they would need to start to plan weeks ahead anyway.

    If Welker can't go, we'd likely see Edelman taking his place, with Hernandez contributing too.

    If there was worry there that Welker or Hernandez may miss a couple/few weeks, then I think we'd see Salas come up from the PS.

    I think that they could realistically get by against the Colts with the assumption that Hernandez should be ready to go, and a combination of Edelman and Branch too.

    More focus and success to the running game would likely equal better clock balance, and take some of the heat off of losing Welker for the game, so I certainly agree with that thought obviously.

    If there's any doubt to Welker's availability come tomorrow/Saturday then I hope they sit and rest him this week.

    Watching NFLN Replay of Pats/Bills Game they show Welker's screen on that play he tweeked his ankel. In a small caption they show Wes interviewed and he says it wasn't drawn up to be a reverse wrap around run and he said man this better work or i'm in trouble lol something to that effect, anyway watching him speak i didn't get that impression that his injury was that bad.
