Wes Welker: A Football Life
Tonight at 8C on NFL network.

Toughest SOB I ever saw play and revolutionized the game all while being an outcast his first few yrs on the league.

Half the teams in the NFL have a quick footed small slot guy running underneath option routes now.

May check that out if I get a chance. Even though his career is recent, I'm guessing that the rules on defenseless WRs changed significantly between the beginning of his career and now. He would probably be even better in today's rules.

Meh.

Great player during the modern era, but the only reason he was relevant is due the defensive rule changes. Any year before like 2002ish he would have gotten killed going over the middle.

He obviously would have a bit 12 fewer concussions too... I've never seen a guy that small get dumptrucked like he did and keep on going.

Outcast is a bit much. He was an UDFA who took a few years to find his spot.

How does that discount the fact that he revolutionized a position?

By that logic we have to discount everything Brady and Manning did because those same rule changed happened early in their careers.

Manning had four Pro Bowls and a league MVP while Brady had already won two Super Bowls before the rule changes. They're not remotely comparable to Welker.

He's had so many concussions that he thinks he's a cheeseburger now.

Okay how about Julio Jones, or Odell. Wouldn't those guys accomplishments be just as irrelevant as you're making Welkers?

And on the flip side wouldn't that make a guy like Darrel Revis the greatest corner ever since he played lights out defense in that era?

You can't pick and choose which guys you want to say the rules effected. Welker created a position essentially.
