It's slightly off topic, but I found it amusing.... Here's the article: FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS: Innovative Statistics, Intelligent Analysis | Welker? I Hardly Know Her. Bill Barnwell wrote this article during the summer of 2007, after The Pats acquired all of our WRs for that year. We gave up a 2nd and a 7th for Welker. In the article Barnwell surmises that Welker is a "victim of his own success" because his stats will fall in NE. Why? Well, he cites a ton of statistical reasons. It's not just his own personal opinion. Again, it's the stats. It's an interesting read. Even more interesting is just how wrong it all is. So, so wrong. Keep this in mind next time you read a reasonable sounding argument from FO. Oh! And in the comments section go read post #21. Someone points to Welker as being a future 1000 yr receiver and a pro bowler for 2007. Yet, the response from our author? "This made me laugh. I don't know about anyone else, but it made me."(In post #40) Hmmm. If I were a mean spirited troll; I would so try to get a response from Barnwell over at ESPN (where he now writes) EDIT: The author predicted Welker's stats at just 35 catches, 445 yards. Not being able to predict 100+ receptions and 1000 yards is one thing. But going that low? Embarrassing.
