First off, you guys act like slotwr is the only way or the best way to strategize on a team.
I guess Dallas Clark was trash with Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne on the outside.
I guess Brandon Stokley didn't help win games because the middle of the field was wide open due to Marvin and Reggie making safetys play off. Which sets up mismatches if the olb is not a good cover guy.
Many teams have won the supebowl without a star slot, never seen many without a star deep threat.
Of course people bring up Brady, he was caught with spy gate and David Givens, while not a star, had an 18.5 avg.....that's a deep threat.
Also you guys act like you have to this super sonic speedster at the slot position, which is untrue. Welker only runs a 4.6, and he also was an UNDRAFTED FREE AGENT.
Dont't know why anyone is trying to spend a first round pick on a slotwr when there is clearly no need to, since they are just a pawn in the bigger game to score.
Also Brady never won the Superbowl with Welker used as a strategy. Also, Welker and Percy are very tough. Tavon is a little small which cause me too wonder if he can take constant punishment. You can't run out of bounds to avoid tackles while catching over the middle!.
Also, I don't know if you guys have been to NFL.com, but they are reporting that the NFL as a whole, does not really value slotwr. That's why guys like Mike Wallace get big pay checks and sotwr get chump change like Welker.
Now if you offer me a slotwr that can do both like Victor Cruz, then I'll be all in. Victor ran 50 percent of snaps from the outside and the rest from the slot.
He also has a Superbowl on his resume, hmmmm, wonder who he beat out?
See most people don't know that there are 3 different type of slotwr, but I'll go into that later.
