Some of us can live with Ayers and a rookie DE over Doom because we know that the O will be much better with Welker not because of scoring either. NE averaged 3.5 more first downs per game then Denver with Welker. Just think what could happen when you give the most accurate slot throwing QB the best slot WR in the NFL. Clock chewing mode for Denver just got 100 times easier.
As I replied to the original post, judging players on a per snap basis is pretty poor methodology. Also, why are we limiting ourselves to the last few games when we have 4 years of data for Ayers?
