    No, and neither would they, I don't think. He's more valuable in the slot to us with Moss than Chad would be as a deep threat with Moss.

    HELL NO!! :eek:

    Welker and Ocho Cinco are two different types of WRs. Who plays the slot if we trade Welker? Again no...would love to have him here, but No not for Welker.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    No freakin' way.

    We have Randy as our big play guy and there is NO better, we don't need Ocho Stinko.

    Wes brings a dynamic that Stinko can't - Going over the middle with reckless abandon and hitting as had as he can. He's a great blocker - Stinko IS NOT. He's a great looker room guy - Stinko IS NOT.

    I mean I can go on and on.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    I actually would do it, myself. I love Welker, but it's easier to find someone who does what he does than someone who does what Chad does. Even if it means giving Troy Brown significant playing time for one more year.

    I actually like Chad Johnson better, but Wes Welker is a far greater compliment to Moss than Ocho cinco would be.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    In a heartbeat although it would never happen. I mean good lord. Chad Johnson is a much better receiver than Wes Welker. It's far easier to find slot receivers than game breaking studs like Johnson. It just amazes me how many fans fall in love with guys and don't think rationally. Chad Johnson for Wes Welker is a no brainer.

    Piece of cake to find guys who tie Jerry Rice's Superbowl receptions record even in a loss where the HOF QB making those throws spent half his evening on his ass...

    No need to mess up on field chemistry or the cap or off field chemistry - each one of which 85, Ocho Cinco, or whatever he is calling himself these days would impact negatively.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    Right, even easier to find a RECIEVER who willing to throw his body into harms way for a play. I'm sure Chad would be happy to block like Wes. Who needs Wes anyways? I mean he only tied for most catches in the league last year, I'm sure that we can find PLENTY of guys that can duplicate his production.

    Perhpas Ocho Stinko can bring his cool HOF Jacket with him - Randy and Tom would think that was really really cool. :rolleyes:

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    Yes, it's Boston sports fandom, and wacked-out trade scenarios are what we do best. Sorry to dig up a B-ball trade scenario from the past, but recall the "Carl Everett and Mike Lansing for Vladi Guerro and Jose Vidro" scenario when both Everette and Lansing had obscene salaries and Guerro and Vidro were bargains.

    And yes, I'd do the Welker for Chad trade in a hearbeat, but only if CJ agrees to play for the vet min.:rocker:

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    No brainer huh, I didn't peg you as a guy that had any of those !

    Wes stays, Chad is great, but we have Randy and filling Wes's shoes in the slot is not as easy as your no brain thinks it is !

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    If anyone was on the fence, this post should confirm that it would be silly to make that trade.

    Moss, Owens, Wayne, S. Smith, C. Johnson, Fitzgerald, Boldin, A. Johnson, Colston, B. Edwards...

    Now name me the slot guys who can do what Welker does.

    Would I make the trade if we didn't already have Moss? Probably. But now that we already have a deep threat game-changer, it's stupid to consider it. Welker keeps games under control better than anyone else in the league.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    If we had the lineup pre-Moss trade in 2007, then yes.
    With Moss & w/o Stallworth, not a good move in terms of chemistry and complimentary styles.

    Re: Wes Welker for Ocho Cinco

    You guys are incredible. Do you honestly think there is ONE GENERAL MANAGER in this league who considers Wes Welker to be a better overall receiver than Chad Johnson? I mean for cris sakes Tom Brady made David Givens and Deion Branch look like superstars in super bowls. Wes Welker had the advantage of playing with Tom Brady and having the defense double cover Moss on every down. Can we get serious people? Good lord. The homerism on this site is out of control. I love Wes but let's not compare him to one of the top 5 receivers in the entire NFL.
