I don't believe Tebow is the answer to replace Brady when the time comes that his age catches up to him. I do not see Tebow as anything more than journeyman material. He may be a decent backup or maybe even a marginally acceptable starter at best.

Brady should have a few more good seasons left in him. I have seen quarterbacks who had some of their finest seasons as they approached their mid to late 30s. Earl Morrall was the NFL MVP in 1968 at age 34 after a previously indistinguished career mostly as a backup QB. He would also step in for an injured Bob Griese in Miami four years later and helped complete an unbeaten season as the Fins went 14-0 and won the Super Bowl. Y.A. Tittle probably had his three best seasons as a pro after turning 35 with the Giants. If Brady can still do the job, I would just say, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it.

Pats let Welker walk-er and then bring in Teblow. Their management may be catching the AFC East Disease.

Didn't Welker end up in Denver? If so, Brady's loss will be Peyton's gain.

I'm hoping to see my Redskins go to the dance this year. RGIII is healing up nice and I think he's learned that running QB's don't last long in the NFL.. We had a great draft, got some depth in the secondary and have starters coming back from injuries.. It's gonna be an interesting season to say the least

The only running QB who survived for any length in Time was Fran Tarkenton who missed very few games in his career due to injury. He had the knack of not allowing himself to be in a position to get hit hard. He has a streak of not missing a game in almost 11 seasons at one point and that missed game was due to his being sat by the head coach in the last game of the season in 1971 and not due to an injury. He did play a substantial part of the 1968 season with a mild shoulder separation.

Yeah, and better yet, your still the Redskins, eh?....lol....Not sure RG III will be that great, simply as a pocket passer?

Fran Tarkenton developed into a better pocket passer later in his career. Billy Kilmer who started out his career as an extremely mobile QB had to learn to become a pocket passer after breaking a leg in an auto accident. He did become a very effective pocket passer later in his career with the Redskins. We shall see if RG3 can make the transition. While I like mobile QBs I still prefer QBs who are passers first who can run effectively when necessary.

Then you should love Brady. Has an NFL record rushing 43 straight times for a first down when 3rd or 4th down and one yard to go. He reads the defense, calls an audible and dives forward to keep the drive alive or scores a TD. That's an NFL Record for effectiveness. And if I'm not mistaken, he is an exceptional pocket passer.
Can't even think of another guy who as rushed 43 times in a row without losing yardage at least once.

Are you cross eyed?
Pats brought in Amendola as an upgrade to Welker,(not Tebow)..
Amendola is younger, bigger, faster, has a smaller dropped passes percentage and didn't demand wide out money because he is smart enough to realize he is a slot receiver. Something Welker refused to grasp, and it cost him $3M for his istupidity and the loss of time spent with his best buddy.
Only "advantage" Wes has is that he has gotten injured once to Danny's twice.
Amendola even has a history before the Pats that is better than Welkers history before the Pats.
Time to see if he can stay healthy and put all his upgraded attributes to work for the Pats.

Why would you want him? He has increased his drop percentages each of the last three years, and that drop in the SB was catastrophic. Better to go with a younger, bigger, faster, quicker, cheaper, better hands guy in Danny Amendola. If he stays healthy, expect to see similar numbers to Welker in a lot less targets. And Brady may actually have some wideouts this year, if only they can catch.
Funny guy

Is it true that Billy Kilmers name was originally Billy Kilmee but the Redskins thought it best to change that last letter?

Are you a cross dresser?

I didn't say Teblow WAS a replacement for Welker. I said they let Welker go, and then they brought in Teblow.

Amendola's career numbers will never get close to Welkers...
