In response to tanbass' comment:
Can someone please enlighten me as to how we become a stronger & better team by shipping TB out of town?
I'm sorry, but I think this thread is beyond ridiculous to even fathom getting rid of one of the best QBs of all time, and CURRENTLY still top 3 in the NFL.
Again, how does getting rid of one of your superstars improve your team?
All these people asking to trade Brady...Welker....Wilfork.....need to put the pipe down. Getting rid of your best players does NOT make the team stronger....how can people not understand this simple concept?
I didn't say trade Brady. I said let Welker go. Welker is a run game extension. When has Welker played well in big games in the postseason?
Keep in mind his yardage totals in a game are skewed because of how many times he's targeted and how fast he is able to get open and now he wants 10 mil per year? No way.
I say Brady has 2-3 years left and a legit shot in those years, but past that, he won't have value. I just hope he gets another ring by then, because SB 46, this past AFC title game, etc, will eat at him for years.
Right now, he and Rodgers are falling into the same trap. Throwing too much, ignoring what a run game can do for you, not enough time under center, etc.
Removing Welker forces more traditional sets from this offense.
Do you want to win a SB or not?
You watched the afc title game, correct? The balance between run and pass was pretty darn close, it was basically what you've wanted for years...it made no difference. The truth is the team needed to play great to win that game, it didn't. We needed guys to be healthy - we needed people like Gronk, Jones and Talib to be 100%. Didn't happen, having said that though, when you supposedly build your team for depth, value, positional flexibility...it shouldn't sink you.
I thought this was one of the worst free agent off seasons we had ever had here. That defensive lineman that was supposed to shore up our inside pass rush and was the first guy we went after hard, was a dissaster. The safety that was supposed to fill a position of need and be a real "value" signing...guy was a total joke, just like everyone said he was. The fifteen tight ends that we signed to save us if the unthinkable happened (Gronk going down)...was another disaster. Lloyd came onto the team with the question of him being able to get open deep and be able to separate...7 months later we are all talking about getting a guy that can do all the things he can't. We need to not be so afraid of spending on some quality this off season, because what we are doing right now is wasting a resource that is available to us. Spend a little more on some quality...worst case scenario we have to go out and sign some guys off the street for cheap money (it's what we end up having to do every season anyway).
