Is wes welker > smitty

109 posts in this topic

Soo...im in a text chat and some NE fan who became a fan in '01, says welker is greater than smitty. Of course i laugh at his comment and the arguement escalades to him sayin welker a true number 1 and smitty just a slot wr. I laugh harder this time telling him smith rarely ever in the slot, welkers game is only the slot. Bandwagon fans are hilarious.

Whats everyones opinion on the 2

welker has produced more than 89 lately so i could see why they think he is better. plus they dont get to watch him do all they little things he does, just like we dont see all of patriots games

True, but ability, heart and the athlete smith is far outweighs welker. Not to mention the vast difference in QBs and offenses.

It's almost impossible to compare two different players in different systems. However, I think the answer becomes clearer if you think what Smitty could do with Brady vs. Welker with Delhomme or Moore.

Either way, they are both great players.

Well does Welker have a triple-crown?

I threw that into the argument and he replied welker would if moss wasnt on the team the past few years.

He's saying welker is top 3 wr in the league now, and says revis is scared to line up 1 on 1 with welker bc he knows welker would make him look like a hs player.

Look at Welker's stats when he was on a team with Moss compared to when he wasn't.

I don't completely agree. Welker's 2010 season is close (I think worse) than Smith's 2009 season. When you compare who was throwing the ball, Smith is clearly the better of the two.

Unless you are going based on last season alone, I don't see how Welker is better.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
