In response to PatsLifer's comment:
at some point we have to put Wes to bed and move on.
However, bias aside, TFb has a valid point. Forget the messenger for a second and listen to the message. "Where is Danny?"
i hope I am not alone in saying my expectations for Danny given his salary were higher , are higher than his current production prove. I don't know if he is battling injury, or with Gronk and edelmans on fire, he is the 3rd option. Your guess is as good as mine.
his current production is not jiving also with what we saw in the game against buffalo. He was on fire and caught some very difficult passes. simply looking at that game alone, I would conclude 2 things...first, his skill set is more dynamic than welker and he has the tools to be productive in our system. Second, he was clearly on the same page as Brady.
What has changes since that game?
gronk has returned, Edelman is picking up steam and the rooks are getting more looks And comfortable in th. System...Danny has also been hurt 2 times.
Straight up, everything else being equal, I believe Danny has the skill to be prodictive (proven), and does have chemistry with Brady.
Ismhe a better receiver than welker in our system considering the pieces around him? I would vote yes. He is more dynamic in the open field, can inside our out, short game or long. My guess is that we will see more of him in the weeks to come.
Thank you and good post. This thread isn't about who is better, it's about what has happened to DA, and can we expect more out of him. And yes, I threw a few low blows into Rusty and RallyC who like to pretend they know it all even though their posts pretty much do the damage anyway.
