I actually couldn't believe this when i read it.
It's just wrong on so many levels.
1) Edelman might not be a "home run hitter", in terms of his speed. But if you've watched him at all this year, he has a few different gears. He's elusive and quick in a phone booth. And also has a very nice burst to breakaway for 30-40 yard gain at any time.
2) I've seen almost every single one their snaps that they have played throughout their career. And if anyone only has one speed it's Welker. He was a great player while he was here but I have to say I was/am glad we moved on.
3) Does Adams not understand that his secondary is just awful and lost their best player? Actually the only CB that played well for them this year. Harris had a very good year and will be tough to replace. It hurts more considering their playing the Pats who have multiple "slot" wr's who can beat you at any one time.
I'm a big "lets not ignore the obvious guy". Denver's secondary has been poor all year and just got worse. This isn't 2005. Their CB's are old and slow. It was painful to watch them try to cover this year. Especially Jammer. Why he hasn't been coverted to S is beyond me. I doubt he'll ever play CB again after this year. I'm expecting us to use some of the same "pick" routes this week that he struggled with against SD.
Edelman is faster than welker straight line and just about as quick as him in a phone booth. Plus Edelman is stronger and harder to bring down. There is a reason he is the best PR of all time. Big difference is Edelman is the 1-2 WR and welker is 2-3 Wr if you count their TE. Would much rather have Edelman, his skill set is far more diverse.
What I was thinking myself, Edelman is all around faster than Wes. =D
40 yard, cone, 20 yard...whatever. Julian is the superior athlete.
