What is your opinion on julian edelman/danny woodhead?

Recommended Posts

I'm a fan of both players,but i'm looking for feedback(especially from patriot fans).Do they have an upside,and will BB part ways with them?

They'll both be Pats next year.  Edelman auditioned for the part of Welker, and Welker may be available.

Always thought it was amazing how these two guys were so successful in NE ... not sure they could do what they do on any other team in the NFL.

Good players. Being played to there strengths.

Credit BB and Brady for knowing when where and how to use them.

As for excelling on other teams? Meh. Maybe. But to me it looks like they are being used to there full potential where they are now.

And Edlman can't stay out of the trainers room.

Edelman is a UFA in 2013. The Patriots will likely try to retain him, but yes - he has a pretty extensive injury history and cannot seem to stay on the field. I have no idea if there will be a lot of interest from other teams or not.

 

Woodhead is also a UFA heading into next season. Although Shane Vereen has a higher upside, I can't see the Patriots letting him go somewhere else, unless some team backs up the Brinks truck for him. (Which is unlikely.) He's not someone who will contribute in every game... he seems to do well in games where more traditional, straight-ahead runners struggle. They'll miss him against Baltimore if he's not able to go Sunday. They're the type of team (big front, not a ton of speed) that he usually gets a lot of touches against.

 

My bet is that both guys will be back in NE.

Edelman is more valuable on ST and the presence of other offensive options on the field makes him effective as an offensive option.

 

Without Welker on the field at the same time, Edelman is less effective, goes without saying. He does not have the durability of a Welker, he however has the short area quickness and ability to separate in small spaces.

 

Woodhead is a very effective 3rd down back, he is OK in picking up blitzes, not a world beater but when he gets a crease, he is very effective in getting chunks of yards downhill. He is probably good for about 10-15 snaps a game consistently, otherwise he will be injured a lot.

Dead-on analysis, as usual Chad. :thmup:

They look the exact same on the field, and you can throw Welker in there too.  If I were any of them, I'd switch jerseys with the other guys randomly just to mess with people

With the types of hoax stories coming out lately, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Danny Woodhead, Julian Edelman, and Wes Welker are all the same person.

What type of salary are they expecting to get this offseason?

Gosh, no idea... Edelman took in around $650K on the last year of his rookie deal. Woodhead was around $900K. My guess is that neither guy is expecting to cash in, but obviously players like these guys (good, not great) follow the money. Someone may overpay for one or the other but the Patriots probably will not!

Some team will over pay for Edelman and Woodhead, it won't be the Patriots and I sure hope it is not the Colts.

Just because we have a lot of $$$ to spend this offseason does not mean we need to throw it around. Personally I think we can find another Edelman in the draft or re-sign Collie, that type of receiver has never been hard for the Colts to find and they always find them for cheap. I don't think woodhead is really the style RB for this offense either, we need a RB that can pick up 3rd and 1. Woodhead has struggled with that all year.

They are not bad players but for the amount of cash it will take the Colts to land them we will never see enough from them to justify it. Just my 2 cents.

    •   You're partially correct. Some of what I am saying (and have said) does walk the line of politics. However, while it might be easy to lump everything together; it does not all fit in the same box.    A lot of what I am talking about is a deep emotional connection to a football team.   I am trying very hard to walk the line about what is acceptable to discuss on this forum, and the waters can get very muddy. I do believe my statements holds true. Ignoring a lot of things happening lately won't fix anything. A person has to take action, within the confinements of the rules, and also within the parameters of moral values.   I believe the same can be said for political reasons or for undesired results of the product on the field. In my mind, the product on the field is not a reason for scaling back emotional investment. However, the politics obviously hit a different nerve for some of us. Not everyone will agree on these issues. It is also very tough to balance them once we understand a persons position.   Nevertheless, actions through participation or lack of participation speak very loud. it is a bottom line business, and it takes both active fans and talented players for the marriage to work.

    • Or maybe, just maybe he saw an opportunity to get into the top 10 for next years draft, AND get a new head coach, AND then have a healthy Andrew Luck. I will reserve my judgement on Chris after next year's off season. That will be the most crucial off-season of his career. 
    •     Sorry, I reread your OP, and I understand what you're saying.  My bad.   Ok, so you are saying that CB could have chosen a more favorable GM position with a different team last year.   I don't know.  At this point, I'm looking at the Colts situation compared to the other teams CB could have chosen... probably top-3 pick in every round of the draft, the most cap-space in the league, and oh yeah what could be the best QB in the league when healthy...   Could anyone starting out as a GM really ask for a better scenario?
