    We wont really know until the playoffs if letting Welker go was a good idea or not.

    What a joke of a statement.

    No this is the primary consideration.

    The Pats have made the playoffs every year for 10 years except 2008. They need to be just good enough to get there and peak at that time.

    If he were here we definitely would NOT be talking about Thompkins, or Dobson coming along because he would have taken 70% or their targets. They would be stuck where they were in week 3 all season. Do you think Brady would have gone back to them after a drop or bad route if Welker was here?

    If any combination Edleman, Amendola, Thomkins, Dobson and Collie comes forward and is a harder tandem to defend than Welker and Edlemann alone (becasue that is what they would have been stuck with) AND the  PATs actually make the playoffs then it was a good move. If not then it was a bad move.

    We won't know until the playoffs.

     Actually saying they would be 7-0 with Welker is a joke of a statement.

    I think both are valid points.  Yes, we won't know until the playoffs.  But there is no denying that this offense is in week 8 and still has not found it's identity.  Week 8!!  There isn't a consistent receiver, there isn't a clutch receiver, there isn't anyone the offense can really count on.  Gronk came back and had a monster day after being out all season, what does that tell you about how this group of receivers are doing?  A guy who has not been on the field until last week, was darn near perfect.  Makes the rest of the receivers look like kids in a man's game. 

    So no, we won't know until the playoffs but they should be perfecting the offense right now for the playoffs, and what they are actually doing is still struggling to find someone who can be counted on, and struggling to find an identity.  Not where you want to be going into week 8.  Welker would have really helped, don't you think?  I believe that is the point here.

    He could help if his presence did not disract from developing other options. I think the real point is the Pats would be 7-0 with him. Hmm...if all Brady had was Welker and Edleman think he might be forcing it to them a bit through double teams...might not have been a good recipie for success to this point in the season, so having any better record than they do might be a stretch. (although getting to 5-2 might not look so ugly with Wleker around)
