    If Tate / Price / Edelman can't replace Branch this year they're hopeless.

    After all, everyone has trade value. We could trade Brady for, say, the entire roster of the Lions...and the stadium...and a few PTBNL....and cash considerations.

    If Edelman could stay healthy, I wouldn't have an issue with it, but when you aquire Ocho and Haynesworth, then your putting all your chips in the middle of the table, wouldn't make sense to trade Welker now.

    We have an abundance in guys who can get open on short/intermediate routes. Welker, Hernandez and Edelman can play that role. We don't have anyone close to a pass rusher like Osi. Makes too much sense.

    I'm downright shocked at the thinking on this one...

    Isn't Welker just about everything that we want on this team? Extremely hard working, gives his all on every single play, can block with the best of them, great hands, etc..

    There's absolutely no way that Belichick feels as though we should get rid of a guy like Wes Welker, in my opinion.

    What is the upside? Honestly? A possible 1st/2nd round pick that we will then HOPE turns into a guy who is almost as important as Wes Welker on this offense?? That makes a lot of sense :confused:

    Honestly one of the most ***** backwards theories that I've seen since the "should we trade TFB threads" when Cassel was doing his game managing thing back in '08.

    Yes, they should trade Welker.



    The trade value of Welker may never be higher than it is now and with the acquisition of "85" and a receiving corp of Branch, Edelman, Gronkowski and Hernandez, the time couldn't be less detrimental.

    Emotionally, I would hate to loss Welker. Pound for pound, he is every bit the competitor that this team needs both on the field and in the locker room. His familiarity with the offense and his chemistry with Brady makes him an asset and guarantees a level of offensive success.

    But championships aren't won with sentimental feelings.

    At the end of the day, this is a business and if you lose focus on that...

    your likely to lose!

    Wes Welker suffers from the well known syndrome of 'making sh*t look easy'.

    Just because he absolutely dominates in an area alot of fans can't fully appreciate it follows that he is 'easily replaceable'.

    Not much gives me a bigger football buzz than seeing Welker catch the ball, take a huge hit...jump up...and give an exaggerated 1st Down signal.

    The guy is a flat out baller and has great chemistry with Brady.
