    I'm so glad Danny A. and his injured groin are on the Pats.  If were lucky we might get a couple of games out of him.

    After watching Welker last night in Denver with his 84 yds and 1 td, I'm glad we didn't keep this too durable productive player.  Much better too speculate on Amendola's groin.

     

     




    Keep in perspective that Welker had 84 yards and 1 TD against the Oakland Raiders who are about as good as Fresno State.   If the Pats played the Raiders last night, they could have coaxed Vrabel out of retirement to play slot WR and he would have put up better numbers because he'd throw 3 tacklers off him wth one arm and gain more yards after the catch.

    Welker doesn't really look the same to me....a step slower if anything...the real star receiver on that team is Decker....

    Bwahahaha, you feeling okay dude?  You must not be watching their games.

    The real update is that he doesn't need surgery and it's not torn from the bone, which means he can't damage it anymore.

     



    I am not a doctor and I presume you are not one either,  I do not understand what you mean by your statement. Why can't he reinjure the area and have the muscle completely torn from the bone it attaches to?

    Re: Amendola update

    At this point you can't argue losing Welker has hurt us very much as we had two slot options, Amendola and Edelman, who have played more than well enough. The loss of tight ends and maybe even Lloyd has hurt more. 

    That said, definitely a shame Welker landed in Denver, he has helped them. Not much you can do. And, Amendola is still out and Edelman is a fragile as a Triscuit, so we're not out of the woods with the loss of Welker yet.

    Sure you can. One guy isn't playing and the other guy can't get further than 7yrds past the LOS. There is definitely a drop off right now from what Welker gave to what we have now. Not to mention that it took 2 guys to replace 1 so there is an extra roster spot that needed to be used to cover his 1 position. There's also the RZ % that has drastically dropped. Now the lose of Gronk and Hern has a good chunk to do with that but Welker was also sneaky good at getting open and finding the goal line. It's actually hard to argue the opposite.

    You can't say Amendola (even Edelman) won't be that good at being sneaky. You're an engineer. You know better than to compare an outcome when the input variables have different values (in this case the TE position).

    Re: Amendola update

    Ok so after reading all this is he coming back or is he rehabbing?  Is this medical stuff a guess or did a real doctor say this. I don't care what part of you it is, you tear a muscle and it hurts for a long time 

    the Welker deal is a shame, he turned down 2/16 guaranteed which was what blew it up.  Nothing like the Rex foot interview or any of tht stuff. We need him and he needed us, we both lose. Although he is sniping here and there with his comments like being a captain. 

     

     

    Now you got the easy part done telling me about it.

    Does that handshaped bruise on your back hurt?

    Re: Amendola update

    We have 3 big games ahead of us, he needs to be out on the field to help this team win.  If Gronk plays vs Falcons and Bengals then it's possible we will be okay and have a good shot at beating both.  However, need both Gronk and Amendola for the Saints game.  For sure he better be back for the Jets and Dolphins games.  Division games are huge.

    Globe reports that Amendola is moving much better than last week. This is encouraging. I love WW but we have to move on, he is not coming back here.

    Re: Amendola update

    It is NOT Welker we miss . . . it is tight end production.  AH and Gronk are missed big, big time . . . and losing Vereen really hurts on top of that.  Hopefully Bolden remains healthy as he looks good out of the backfield and was able to play out wide and get covered by linebackers like Vereen . . . not sure his hands are as good but he has beaten out Washington for that position.  So far Amendola and Eldeman have more receptions and yards out of the slot than Wes has had  so I'm not too concerned about receptions out of the slot position . . . and Eldeman was covered some of the time last week by Revis and still had a pretty good game.  Thompkins, Dobson and Boyce have to keep improving  . . .

    Danny Amendola (groin) said Wednesday that he anticipates "being 100 percent shortly."

    Amendola wouldn't give any kind of timetable and he remains very questionable for Sunday night's showdown with the Falcons. He was spotted moving better on Wednesday, but it's unclear how close to 100 percent he is. All owners can do is keep monitoring practice reports.

    Is that enough excitement? 

    I just think people are to the point of wait and see.  First of all It's Bill Belichick's team and we all know how he is concerning injuries and time tables.  Second of all It's Danny Amendola.  He could be back Sunday or 5 weeks from now.  He could be back 2 weeks from now and injure himself again.  I think the wait and see approach is best right now.

    Re: Amendola update

    Take this to the second bank after leaving the first....the Patriots are beyond hyper sensitive to Amendola being injured...far far beyond their normal paranoia...even for BB standards...

    Amendola is saying what he's been told to say and nothing more. The Pats very badly want to keep a lid on his health.

    We'll see when he actually returns and if he can make a go of it.

    As an engineer I can compare an outcome with known variables with some unknown provide we use current/past and not future variables during calculations. At this point (the point he's arguing) what we know is Amendola isn't playing (hard to be sneaky when you aren't on the field) and the RZ % has dropped with Edelman on the field (Brady is having to hold to ball longer than he clearly was before in single TE and spread sets at goal line compared to previous years). Those are the knowns in this equation in which Welker did find ways to get open which Edelman hasn't found yet. BTW, engineers use best estimate methods all the time because for the most part you can't know all the variables or have direct comparisons. That's why we use things like predictive modeling and LaPlace calculations.

     What does the above say...exactly?? What's your definition of shortly?

    He gives no time table....it's political double speak...it says nothing factual.
