Welker is the only slot WR in the NFL that Chris Harris can't cover. Harris is going to get even better practicing against Welker.

Those guys are going to have a lot of fun going against each other.



The Offense is loaded with 8 Pro-Bowl players (all 11 play at an extremely high level).

The Defense probably starts the year with 3 Pro Bowlers. I would be surprised if the first 2 draft picks aren't spent on Defense. DE and Safety are the two deepest positions in the draft. Great job Elway.

I also would not be shocked if one of those DTs drop Denver snags one up. Vickerson is above average, Knighton is not as good as Vickerson yet. Of course he could make a huge jump this year we do not know. Unrein is solid and improving. Throw a first round stud in that mix and let Vickerson, Knighton and Unrein fight for the other position and then you have a great rotation on top of that.

Peyton will win it again. You see, the problem last year is he had his 88 and 87 but he lacked his 83..

Just noticed that- what are the odds?

Patriots didn't want Welker, he came back to the Pats to see if they'd match 2 years $12m and we didn't want him.

He drops the ball way more than he used to.

The problem is Welker isn't going to stop Peyton from being a bad cold weather QB or becoming a turnover machine in the playoffs.

You know its true, you'll probably go 14-2 #1 seed and lose your first playoff game.

Manning has more Super Bowl wins the last eight years than Brady.

Good for him, unfortunately that's the only stat that you can use where Manning trumps Brady.

2-5 in the playoffs since winning that Super Bowl.

I wasn't a fan of this signing until I saw how short and relatively cheap it was. Then it became a no-brainer. PFF ranks it the best signing thus far:

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...y-deal-grader/

To be fair to NE, they ranked the Amendola signing in the 2nd best category but I think they under-weight his injury issues.

Wes Welker (WR) to DEN: 2-year, $12m

Incredible. We all assumed Welker would be back with the Patriots yet he’s gone and signed with the Broncos and for just $6m per season. Are you kidding me? That Broncos offense already had one of the most prolific passing attacks and now it adds a guy who had 1,040 slot yards, while turning his receptions into 72 combined first downs and touchdowns. That was the fifth most in the league. This is a stunning move for the aggressive Broncos.

I'm guessing McDaniels is somehow behind this.

McD: "Hey, Bill! I coached Amendola down in the swampy place, wherever the **** it was, and I'm tellin' ya, Danny is better than Wes! Pull the trigger!"

Emperor Belichick: "I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear, Lord Josh?"

McD: "They are clear, my master."

Last time Brady won a Super Bowl Plummer was in the league. Or the last time they cheated.

0-2 in SB since spygate. NE is no closer to winning another SB than the Broncos. Don't worry about the Broncos, you got problems of your own.

Welker apparently turned down significantly more money from the Titans. Remember when some people used to argue that PM wouldn't help attract free agents?!? Yeah, you know who you are...

Welker's just being smart. Short term deal means he's playing for his next (maybe last) big contract. Not a good time to go languish in honky tonk for two years.

Bob, your bitterness shines through even when discussing a team you dont like.

If the pats didnt want him, Amendola would have signed earlier. Instead, they sign him minutes after losing Welker. And its not like they went in a different direction, they signed a more brittle version of wes.

You fail at troll.

As much as i hate the Patriots, i hate the "they are 0-2 since spygate" argument more.

You'd have a point if they went 2-14 after they got caught, but referencing two more super bowls, both games they easily could have won, as some kind of proof that the spygate scandal had anything to do with their success is just dumb.

But regardless of that, Clam's (Bob) argument that Welker is **** and the Pats didnt want him back is just as dumb.

Well I am definitely making Manning a keeper in my fantasy league now.


When was the last time a team had 3 WRs who in the previous season combined for 3800 yards? That is right - it has never happened. The 2005 Colts had 3 guys who combined with 3300 yards and 37 TDs and a QB with a huge head in the previous year......
