Matt39 Posted November 10, 2009 Share Posted November 10, 2009 Welker gets open and stays open because most teams double and triple Randy Moss because he is by far the most dangerous player on the Pats offense. The goal in playing the Pats is to make Welker beat you. That right there should tell you who is more important to the Pats offense. So in other words: teams would rather Welker catch 10 passes for 85 yards and possibly a TD than have Moss catch 7 passes for 168 yards and 3 TDs. This doesn't require huge brain power to understand. Why this is so difficult for Pats fans like you, Garb, PFSIKH and 124 to grasp is beyond me. Welker is a nice player. He is not anything special and he is nowhere near as important to the Pats as Moss. If Welker got hurt, Moss' production wouldn't slip all that much. If Moss got hurt, Welker is ****ed. Pretty much. Welker is a pest to defend as he knows how to slip through the cracks and move the chains. But there a lot of guys in the NFL that can do that. Welker isnt a threat in the redzone, nor a threat to break one, which limits his value. Randy Moss is still an absolute beast. That one handed catch was unreal.
