Is Amendola an upgrade or downgrade?
Wed, 13 Mar 2013|
Felger and Ordway discuss whether or not they think Amendola is an upgrade or downgrade at receiver for the Patriots.
It's it's time nicest ticket and bill's face every once in awhile so this this is definitely get one. So we all remember that apparently. There was something to that that's Ty Law that's what rob said at the times here is the comparison Danny Amendola. A little bigger a little younger. It's a few more years but again guaranteed dollars -- points out while guaranteed walker. I would go only got ten yard -- -- -- went all the numbers and the ability numbers. Do not prepared just as any other receivers numbers you're not repair I compare to Wes Welker Wes -- -- -- receiving numbers like you have the lead. Before and who knows -- defense is now off to catch passes. From Peyton Manning and Tom Brady's left. With Danny and adults only angle to this one -- I think the biggest one you pointed out. Is. Really based out of run and Amendola vs Wes Welker not over twelve million guaranteed. But over to you go to the difference is for difference of two million dollars. Do you think I've heard this all day that it turns up the Patriots didn't even while Wes Welker do you believe that. I think they wanted Wes walker but I think they wanted him. On they are turned and you know the other thing too is that if you're Welker and you know the Patriots are pretty give you an awful lot of money you go on to the open market you sit there and -- stunt. Because you thought you gonna get a lot more money in your ending up right now only getting to two year deal at twelve. It might be better to go elsewhere to take the cheap money. -- might be still little irritated. -- what they did at the beginning of the season when they tried to. To change their offense in. No I think it's money with the teams and I think this is the way the team the Patriots have done business all along. This is no change in their philosophy don't think the pats and government had a decision where they took it personally and made a decision like that Mike Vrabel mentions Patriots place next thing you know. Gone Richard Seymour traded yet bill that went behind the scenes a year it's funny you know the Richard Seymour so as a whole lot so what's local stick to personally but the -- Bill Belichick in the -- never taken a little bit so they know they aren't sure they do take stuff personally. But Ochocinco survived an entire season I thought he'd be gumbo the week to all week trying to prove my point now hospitals guy. Don't want Ochocinco that was his guy that brought us -- I was wrong don't know about but I don't physical wasn't doing anything for the team -- -- I think you're wrong to say that the Patriots never make moves where they've been pissed off that a player. Vrabel was one Seymour was one Wes Welker just might be one they've had things going on back now what behind the scenes glad. For a couple years now to think that -- no no no factor here in the fact that they weren't they Wes Welker I think it's naive but. I I I don't think -- being naive about this when I would give you this that there's always a possibility that that the personal stuff may play into it. I think this is the way they do business it's all about money it's all about his risk factor at age 32 Sullivan has -- it's a mistake. If I don't. And the reason I think it's a mistake right now is because I watch Wes Welker last season this guy was extremely productive. See huge drop off don't you start to show a drop off if you start to show that. Maybe he's playing more like he's 36 and not thirty -- then you've got to move on but I think what they're doing is. They're catching get ahead of the curve still looking at it and say Evan dole is basically what we saw with Wes Welker in Miami. And we're gonna start using him now and it might take a little bit of time but we think he can be everything to Wes walker is a much what's gonna happen. And there's a short window we have because. Brady we're not dealing with Brady in 2000 southern when he was. What do the math thirty odd twenty something years old what you -- -- with me but Ryan mallet will love -- okay. But that's what we're talking about what what's Brady's window as as as they believed NFL quarterback. I think we're looking at three years you might play for five what to expect him to be the same guy at 39 is asking too much obviously. But short window for Brady Wes Welker is going to be 32. To start next season not 42 about 38 he'll be 32. He's not that old it's. It's not unreasonable to expect Wes Welker is going to be there for two more years something got in the way of this deal -- and it wasn't just the value because if you're telling me Danny Amendola is better value the -- local over the next two years. I don't know how anyone could believe I -- I don't. Leave it either and you don't believe it but I think they do and you might be right now beat it may be personal I just think that they have a history. A being extremely consistent when it comes to the stuff and it's all about the value that all about the idea 26 point four million dollars to spend right now. They're not that consistent they lot. Bill Belichick loves it. Ochocinco while dumb past tense what and as a person six million guaranteed Ochoa come on -- The kick field goals and kick off I wonder personality and he got taken care because that was bill's guy. Wes Welker is not -- guy that's why he's in Denver.
