2019 Weekly Picks Winner
Meh.... a system receiver with a few lucky catches.
That’s a great tribute to Edelman, and one that is completely deserved."By any measure of what constitutes an elite NFL career — wins, championships, production — Julian has it all," Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. "Few players can match Julian's achievements, period, but considering his professional trajectory and longevity, the group is even more select. It is historic. This is a tribute to his legendary competitiveness, mental and physical toughness and will to excel. Day in and day out, Julian was always the same: all out. Then, in the biggest games and moments, with championships at stake, he reached even greater heights and delivered some of his best, most thrilling performances.
"For all Julian did for our team, what I may appreciate the most is he was the quintessential throwback player. He could, and did, do everything — catch, run, throw, block, return, cover and tackle — all with an edge and attitude that would not allow him to fail under any circumstance. Julian Edelman is the ultimate competitor and it was a privilege to coach him."
Mitchell was thinking to himself, "That line isn't making it into any of my children's books."I love the look on Malcolm Mitchell's face while Jules was telling him what his dad said about closing out a game during the AFCCG.
"My dad always used to tell me when I was a young boy, 'When you've got them down, you break their F'ing neck,' Edelman said, as Mitchell gave him a high five. "That's what he used to tell me. I was like 12. I was like 'Dad, that's kind of a lot.'"
Edit to add:. Mitchell looked like someone who just realized they were sitting next to a serial killer.
Wes was an incredible, great player for us.Jules coming out party was 2014 against the Legion of Boom. Jedi status after the Falcons game.
Always liked him better than Welker. Welker would've found a way to drop the pass and Pats would've punted.
