    Welker was on Jim Rome today.

    Said Manning recruited him hard to Denver. Brady was disappointed to see him go. Welker and Rome used to own a race horse together. Welker sold his share in that pony and now owns a horse called "Undrafted." Sounds like hes heavy into horse racing.

    If the Broncos take down the Pats this season or Denver wins the SB, this deal will haunt NE Bambino like. Im fine with letting Welker walk if the plan is to put better talent on the field with Brady.

    So far that hasnt happened and this WR corp is looking like Reche Caldwells 2006 group.

    Moonhead gets smashed just once in the neck, and it's all moot...Manling is a submoron...he's rich beyond his wildest dreams, he's "won" a Super bowl...yet he risks the rest of his life and mobility to win a rigged up Goodell Special Super Bowl....I can't begin to find the words to describe such sheer, utter mindlessness...and Welker has chosen to hitch his future to THIS hillbilly Willie...I fervently hope it all goes sideways and Welcher pours his heart out to Jim Rome at the end of a lost season admitting HIS stupidity.

    The Patriots tried to screw Welker over, and he decided not to let them, and Welker's the stupid one?

    In hindsight...yeah, Welker IS stupid...I know that's not really fair but I'm pi$$ed off still...but my main point is Manning....why throw in with a QB who is one misstep from a wheelchair?...Manning goes down early with neck problems and what does Welker have to fall back on?...he'll be another year older and spending a season catching a pass here and there from some JAG trying to impress Elway by throwing bombs to the outside receivers.

    Welker was entrenched in the system HERE...Brady goes out Welker still makes his catches...unless BB suddenly decides to sign Jamarcus Russell

    That's not going to fly on a Manning team. I'm sure he'll be blaming the offensive line or the kicker soon enough, though.

    The presence of Wes Welker will help to keep Manning out of a wheelchair. Now he'll have a slot receiver who knows how to get open, a slot receiver Manning can find quickly which will allow him to get rid of the ball before the D closes in.
    The presence of Wes Welker has had a lot to do with Tom Brady being upright in recent years. It'll be very ironic if Brady is the one who goes down on a hit because he was holding the ball too long waiting for someone to come open.

    Can someone please explain (again) what exactly is a dog faker? I used it the other day and got a puzzled look…and when the person asked me what that is, I made up some mumbled response.
    Please define for the less-cool forum members like me!

    I hope you are right…but the last time he had a non-HOF QB throwing to him in 2008, he ended up with:
    111 catches, 1165yds, his career high in YAC, and also the 2nd lost play from scrimmage in his career.
    But he is 5 years older and in a new system so hopefully he will regress.:rolleyes:

    As I remember, I don't think it has an official meaning. It was used by a poster here (whose name I forget) in reference to Randy Moss, and it's stuck as a running joke I think.

    Unless someone else has more info on it, that's basically the gist.

    This is what I remember too. I think it's some vague reference to Randy maybe taking plays off now and then. I think anyone sane would have a hard time making that case vs. Wes.

    God that thread was classic. Ian should create a PatsFans.com Hall of Fame forum and that thread should be stickied.

    That's a great idea. Why don't we have a Hall of Shame for really bad threads and Hall of Fame for really good threads? (Unfortunately, there would probably be a lot more of the former than the latter.)

    Simple Rules: Ian is the sole "decider" and the threads are locked once they are moved to their respective Halls. I second the nomination of the Moss-dog-faker thread as the first entrant in the Hall of Shame.

    Welker was offered more money by the pats. 2/10 potentially 2/16

    His broncos deal is 2/12 with no incentives.

    Welker screwed welker by not accepted 2/16 extension last year. Stop drinking whatever it is jets fans have been handing you.

    Yeah, because you never heard of Gronkowski, Hernandez and Ballard - - Brady has no options but to hold the ball and throw bombs this year. :)

    Bingo. In 2011, they offered him 2 yrs 16 million for 2012 and 2013 FULLY GUARANTEED.

    Wes Welker = Great WR/Lousy Poker Player.

    Can't let this pass because, in just one sentence there are almost too many inaccuracies to count.

    1. In the end Welker took less money on what will most likely be a shorter deal than what he had on the table in NE. Does that sound smart to you DI? Because if you think what Denver offered was the better deal, then you aren't going have a long career negotiating contracts.

    2. How can you ignore the fact that Denver can release Welker after the 2013 season and not owe Welker a penny.

    3. How can ignore the fact that Denver will need to spend top dollar to resign DThomas, and big money to sign Decker. They won't be able to afford both of them, PLUS have another $8MM (that's reportedly Welker's cap number for 2014)for a declining 33 year old slot receiver.

    4. That means in all likelihood, Welker is going to have endure the indignity of having to go back in FA, next season, or have to accept a cap friendly deal in Denver that will pay him a LOT less than the $6MM that was "guaranteed

    But that's OK. The rest of us will just continue to be "bricks", while you continue to issue pronouncements like the one above, from high up on Olympus :rolleyes:

    Welker is looking at a 60 reception year with the broncos, and hes looking at getting cut and getting contracts in the 3.5 million per year range at best next year.

    he and his agent screwed the pooch so badly.

    Nonsense. Welker's agent committed the screw-job on this one while Wes was asleep at the wheel.
