That's less than he would have made had he been franchised. He must really think that Manning is the key to the SB.

It's almost half of what he would have made franchised.  I don't get how the Pats couldn't pay him $6M, and I don't get how the Broncos got him for $6M.  He must have only gone to them because he wants to win and he knew Peyton was his best bet.  And probably get back at the Pats for abandoning him.

All the patriots need is to go 6-10 and they'll win their division. Perfect time for rebuilding the team when you have bum teams in the division.

Dude, I'm a Texans fan too, but until we upgrade our QB and coach, we'll be stuck losing in the 2nd round pretty much forever.

2013-03-13 09:50:45 PM  
sweet. i can now draft the guy in fantasy without betraying my "I will never own a Patriot EVER" mantra.  And Payton is still going to go to Decker who is NEVER covered.  Decker is what Welker was 7 years ago, a great sleeper 10th round guy.

I'll bet you $50 the Colts don't win the division. They played one of the weakest schedules on record this year, plus they had the Cancer inspiration thing. I say they go 9-7

I'm not sure what scheme a defensive coordinator is going to dream up to attempt to cover the new Broncos receiving corps. Most teams did a crap job at it last year, so adding Welker is going to crush the life out of any and all of the 3rd cover men stuck playing against the Broncos. Manning was 400/583 for 4,659 last season. He should hit 5,000 yards this season with ease.

Welker was due for a 20% bump from last year's 9.5 million, because he had been franchised last year, so it would have been 11.4 million.

Pats went with Amendola for actually slightly less in guaranteed money, 5 years of control if he works out.

Broncos got a good deal, but I think the Patriots made the right decision in moving on. Welker had been taking an incredible beating in the slot, particularly in the last few years, sooner or later that catches up with you. It might be why he started dropping more passes the last few years--slot receivers usually get tackled by much bigger guys than wideouts.

He's an incredible player, and I hope he makes it into the HOF some day, but Pats need to spend more money on their horrible pass defense. Even with signing Amendola, between Welker's 9.5 million and soon to be released Brandon Lloyd, they'll get close to $10 million more on the cap. And they can always use Hernandez more in the slot

He had no business even being that close to making the catch. If it had been anyone else throwing it he wouldn't of caught half as much shiat as he did.

They were waiting for a more accurate headline, namely Seattle/Denver.

I thought it was due to be close to double what he actually got, but I couldn't find that number anywhere else or specifically remember it.  So thanks for explaining it and the number.

Not sure if serious...they were top 5 in pretty much all defensive categories last season. So that would be a pretty dumb thing to say if you were serious.

Yes yes let that hubris flow through you Seattle fans. Do you guys even watch the NFL? I have to assume not since you seem to be oblivious to how Super Bowl "favorites" have been doing for the last oh 15 years or so.

But hey keep clamoring for favorite status. Dream Team II in my opinion, I think Vince Young might even be available to back up Wilson for his inevitable knee injury this year.

Well, what do you expect? If you look closely at that image, you'll see that it was five against one.

That was not  a good day. I was the only Bronco fan at a '49er Super Bowl party. My ribs still hurt.

Welll....they gave up 30 points to any team with a semblance of an offense, barring the Saints. They played at least 10 games against offensively challenged teams.

I eat, breathe, live, and poo NFL.  It drives my wife nuts.  I have the NFL ticket.  I spend thousands on tickets...I spend 2k+ on fantasy and sports gambling.  I live the NFL.

All I will say is this:  We in Seattle, we don't get much to be excited about.  We don't make high free agency acquisitions.  Prince Fielder snubs us because of our park.  Josh Hamilton wanted 30 million more to come here.  Deion Branch washes out because he's 4' 9.  The 1 year our Sonics were greatness, we ran into the Michael Jordan buzzsaw.

It isn't hubris.  It isn't being a snob.  It's genuine excitement that for once in the past 20 year, we have a sports team in this town we can cheer and feel good about, with expectations that are through the roof.  That about sums it up.
