    Remember the brouhaha over whether or not Welker was worth a second and a seventh?

    Everyone on board now? :D

    Did you see that move he put on last night?

    I was one of those wanting Welker before last season ended, saying he'd be well worth the 2nd round pick.

    In all honesty, he's playing better than I imagined.

    I just wish the Pats punt return unit blocked better. COME ON MIKE WRIGHT.. GET BETTER SOON. We need you out there.

    I'll be the first in the whipping line. I thought we overpaid. We didn't.

    I thought we got a decent deal. But I know some fans (not just Patriots fans)who insisted we needed a "real receiver" after we got him. A second and seventh for a receiver with one career TD?! LOLOLOLZZZZ

    I was one who thought a 2nd was way too much. After a couple of weeks thought it seemed like a wise investment.

    This guy is amazing. Just like with Moss, Brady seems very comfortable passing to Welker.

    I think its a given that Moss & Welker are better than any receiver we had last year. Its too early to say Stallworth is also as he hasn't done much yet...

    Another question is: If you had a choice between Branch & Welker, which one would you choose? I may just have a forgetful mind, but Welker to me looks better than Branch did when he was here (I know, only 2 games, but I see no reason why Welker would digress)

    That move he put on their #54 in the first half was unbelievable. It was like watching a white Barry Sanders :)

    He has exceeded expectation by leaps and bounds. I love how much energy he brings to the game.

    I never thought that we overpaid but I also never thought that he would be what he is turning into. Obviously the FO knew and we will be able to watch him for the next couple of years. He'll only get better.

    I still can't believe that move that he put on the Chargers D and he isn't afraid of contact, unlike Branch. I don't know if that's a good thing or not.

    Hey Oswlek, don't worry, I am sure Welker will set it up so he can walk on water for you :D

    Silly question, but have you considered swapping out your avatar now that Welker actually has pics in a Pats uniform? :D
