    Re: Interesting and Impressive Stat on Welker

    You have to love having Welker on the team.

    I'm not sure his current pace is sustainable. But, truth be told, I'd like to see him getting fewer hard hits and save him a few aches and pains (while that doesn't translate into fewer passes, it does mean Brady needs another go to target...if for no other reason than to make the offense less predictable on 3rd and long).

    Re: Interesting and Impressive Stat on Welker

    If Stafford and Johnson can both be top candidates on the same team, I think Wes continues to be disrespected in their rankings...as his (NR) status from week 3 underscores... Especially when a guy like Hasselbeck is ranked higher on the basis of playing for a team that has long been just a functional QB away from contention... Plugging a functional gap doesn't make you a league MVP, although it could make you a team one by default. He and Fitzpatrick could be tied for 10th...

    I think Brady hurts Welker in his and everyone else's MVP meter. If Welker was doing what he was doing with say Stafford, Welker would probably be top 3 on every MVP Meter. I think Brady's early performance is so historic that it diminishes Welker's performance in a lot of people's eyes.

    Welker is the best receiver we have really, Branch and co do well but Wes always steps up when called upon!

    Welker won't keep up this pace. A big chunk of his receptions the last two weeks are catches that Aaron Hernandez would normally have. When Hernandez is back his production should drop a bit. He will still catch 120 balls mind
