He was a great WR. I miss him.
Retired and living in NJ.
Had to retire or Dr's said he would die from the concussions.
Wes Welker>>>>>>>>>>>>Wayne Chrebet.:banned:
he's a poor mans Wes Welker
LOL, right. Sure.
What was the point of making this thread again? I don't miss Wayne Chrebet. I hated the guy.
I was serious.
Do a yahoo search on him or perhaps his Wiki page. They said if he got hit again he could die.
Guys, comparing Chrebet to Welker is like comparing a flashlight to a star...
....I thought he was the Green Lantern?
I think it was in response to the Troy Brown tribute. Some Jets fans think Wayne can compare to Troy. As a reciever - sure, sans the game altering playoff/SB moments .....but as an overall player? Nope. Never.
I liked them both.
Welker is a YAC guy. Chrebet was pure possession receiver, read coverages and sat down in the holes.
Yep, he was a real good receiver. One of the few Jets I actually liked. Tough SOB, too.
Co sign. Hating him would be like hating Troy Brown.
Great player. Welker has one great season under his belt, so I think it's premature to make the judgment that he is better so early in his career. Chrebet played with a lot of heart and a lot of skill for years.
Agreed. Classy guys.
lol that sig is great
Hard to hate Chrebet, not that he was the best, or even close to the best, it was his story. Small school local white kid, not a big guy, undrafted walk on, beat the odds to make the team. He was kind of an every man.
That's okay. They thought Lord Favrequad would win them the division.
Yea he was a tough SOB. Deep respect for Wayne Chrebet.
He had some uncanny ability to get wide open at the worst possible time. Never understood how he semmingly would disappear in a crowd and reappear wide open in the flat ... hated when that happened.
Both Wayne and Troy were great. Wayne was definitely tougher, but Troy was more versatile...clearly
I have no idea as to the OP's motives, but it seems he would have been better served by starting a thread with a more coherent theme regarding Chrebet. Here was a guy who everyone could get behind...he was tough, reliable, smart, and focused. He did not have the skills of a Welker (or an Al Toon, to mention another Jets great who sadly retired early because of concussions), but he was a fantastic player, one well-worth remembering in a week when Troy Brown is being remembered.
Even though we are Pats fans here, we can celebrate toughness and quality in our opponents...I know that.
Hence the abundance of love for just a decent WR. Tell me how "tough" and "hard working" he is
You have got to be kidding me.
you hit the nail right on the head. He was merely an average WR who was hyped up b/c he was white.
WC is more like a Vince Papale, no one comes close to being Troy Brown.
