Are you trying to say that Moss is more of a possession receiver than Welker?

Yeah Moss is more of a possession receiver than Smith and Welker, but Welker and Smith can run away from defenders better than Moss.

I'd like to see what Smith's 40 time was in 05 when he lost that weight to get faster. Look back at the Vikings game this year when Smith broke away mid field, Moss can't do poo like that. Logically one has to assume that Smith is slower now days but Smith has never been (except maybe a couple of years) labeled at the extreme elite speedster, ala Chris Johnson, Devin Hester. Smith knows how to use his speed that's difference, he's a pure play maker and there are other aspects to that than speed.

So to recap...

Welker is the faster player.

Moss is the possession receiver.


Yup... that's how things work in New England. Perfect.

the stats say the opposite.

Moss has a plethora of long TD catches and a higher average. He's the home run hitter. Out running DBs for the long ball is his bread and butter. You don't get so many long TD's without being very fast. A pure possesion reciever might be able to get behind a guy but he's not going to be able to break a 70yard TD without somebody missing a tackle.

The only reason welker gets so many catches underneath is because of moss being the deep threat. He works the slot. He's a sure handed reciever who is more quick than fast. He runs good routes. He's not a threat to score whenever he touches the ball unless you're around your oponents 30.
