Mon, 17 Sep 2012|
Wes Welker continues to be a huge topic of debate amongst Patriot nation and CSNNE.com insider Tom Curran sheds some expert knowledge on the veteran's limited playing time
Join up our pages insider for CS NNE dot com the one and only. Tommy -- aren't Tom lot of questions a lot of fuel wondering what the deal is longer. Did you -- with the best information your most up to date information. Your hypothesis on what is happening. -- the Patriots laboring to make their point that they're trying to maintain it. Wes Welker is a threat level now I think what's going on is not punishment and I think it has more to do with. Trying to figure out who will be the heir apparent to the position next year -- this week folks. If Wes Welker comes out catches a ball game for the first eight games and at the end of the season the Patriots decide they want to let go to they know whether or not Julian -- for the position. No they don't but right now doing an -- comes off of very good training camp. And offseason that he -- Tom Brady and say you know what. Wes Welker makes a mistake I hit drop against the Tennessee Titans but -- settlement and see how he runs because that we have our plans for next year people say that's not doing what's best team. How do you know to -- -- -- player and he did -- Tom Brady will be with us for the team back in 2001. He's a decision to give me all the time when players going up. -- and one might be going now. Do you really believe in at the age of 31 -- seven months removed from a 120 -- season. That Welker would have declined enough for -- would have risen enough to. Not only close the gap. But actually vault alum and above all that bad as well that's clearly. From snap count to wide receiver sets the base packages two tight ends two wide single back. Cattlemen fifteen snaps of any team places too wide receivers that Welker just three the best players are gonna. I think the best players don't always make the team. Because if that was the case I think Brian Hoyer would be here and Ryan mallet would not you have a guy is more capable of a guy is less capable right now and a couple of years that will be flipped. And I think that's what we're seeing here with settlement I agree with you. The better player is Wes Welker five catches for ninety yards eleven targets is more trusted. Right now by Tom Brady probably will be going forward but that's my best hypothesis. That and the fact that they're trying to keep his reps I don't think it's punishment I definitely don't think it's contract related the guy's done nothing but everything the team is past. Right outlook that that is foolish but it front and understated you can tracks on -- trying to punish him for not sign along term deal right however. You put your best eleven out on the field and you're telling me elements not your best eleven just by some of the sets used. And thereby -- decreasing the value of the game to a certain degree because you wanna get a look at this guy you picked it looks -- guys -- pre season or not what scores again we are. My two boys and they see in the pre season how many balls to Wes Welker -- zero look I understand which -- same but there is a point there is evidence that Julian settlement. Does deserve these not evidence that I got. I can tell you could tell we watched the games a 173 targets last year are 122 catches he's a better player than Julian gentlemen again my best hypothesis is. They wanna seizure if this player had a good summer can be the heir apparent.
