    #95 Jersey

    Chad Johnson
    Wes Welker
    Julian Edelman (Wes 2.0)
    Brandon Tate
    Deion Branch
    Taylor Price (played well in his limited time last year)

    That's 6 WR's.


    We could easily ship Wes and not miss a beat. He's older now and didnt have such a great season last year.

    What do you think we could get for West? Would you want to trade him?

    Hey, you saw the stats I had a while ago. Welker was half as productive last season when comparing 0 or 1 TEs to 2 or 3 TEs. I'll gladly use 2 TEs every play with Branch and Ochocinco on the outside and get a 2nd for Welker while I can.

    Welker was coming off major knee surgery, so your analysis is fatally flawed due to that alone.

    Did your "stats" take into consideration that Welker was still recovering from his ACL/MCL injury? NOPE. Didn't think so...

    This is yet another reason as to why were fans and BB is the coach..

    The team has a talent issue at wide receiver already. Why would you even think of trading the best of the bunch?

    Wasn't he running on the same knee no matter how many TEs were on the field?:confused:

    I think it might have more to do with how much it will cost to keep him next year if we do indeed trade him.

    First of all, I think trading Wes Welker is a bad idea. However, why would a knee injury affect him more in 2+ TE formations? Sciz's stats are legit, and it's not like we haven't known forever that Welker is much better in the slot than outside. So, it is conceivable that increased use of multiple TE formations will reduce Welker's overall production. That being said, we ARE going to use 3+ WR formations, and I want Welker as my third receiver!

    The number of TEs has nothing to do with Welker recovering from the injury and the injury affecting his production..

    How about this. How about you do the breakdown of 3rd down plays where Welker was on the field in 2 or 3 TE sets and whether or not that production was affected.

    Then tell us whether it was affected SOLELY by the improvement of the TEs on the field or because of his recovering from the knee injury.

    Then ask yourself this. Does the improvement of the TEs make Welker more deadly or less deadly to opposing teams.

    Something else for you to ponder.
    In 2009, Welker had 128 receptions for 1348 yards. The TEs that year had a total of 43 receptions for 546 yards.

    In 2010, Welker had 86 receptions for 848 yards. The TEs had 93 receptions for 1161 yards.

    But there is a big difference.. In 2010, Welker had 7 TDs compared to only 4 in 2009.

    The Patriots offense IMPROVED because Welker was there AND the improvement of the TE position. You take out Welker, who is better than Branch, and you lose that.

    *sigh* Looking at his "stats" in a vacuum, they are legit. Ignoring the fact that Welker's overall production was down because of his injury makes the argument bunk.
