In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
I don't agree. The guy who hit him in the head and lunged with his head was the second tackler and Amendola nearing the sideline. It's not like it was an open field bang/bang play.
Could be, I'll have to look at it again. Let's see what the league does.
Still wish DA would avoid that situation altogether. There's no upside to lowering your head there. Just go out of bounds or go down. The kid can play, that's why it sucks so much.
I actually think he's a far better athlete than Welker. Bigger and faster, more versatile, better body control. Welker wouldn't have been able to pull off that play, doesn't have the speed. We should probably stop comparing them, they're really not that alike, just play the same position.
Just hope he and Gronk are playing at the end of the season.
[/QUOTE]There are alot of players "bigger and faster" than Welker but none of them has caught over 100 passes each year for the last 6 years. I also might quibble with the "better body control comment" because he surely has a knack for catching the passes and avoid the injury-producing hits.
potential doesnot mean anything in the nfl. A lot of players are bigger, faster, more athletic, and stronger than welker. But not half as good. comparing welker to amendola is just plain out dumb. Welker is and has been one of the most productive receivers in the league the last 5years. Amendola not so much.
