Can Santana Moss be Wes Welker?

It seems to me that there arent many quality possesion recievers out on the market right now, just big play recievers. At first I thought that we shouldnt get these guys because Moss is our big play reciever, but then I got to thinking that Moss is kind of similar to Welker in that they are both very quick. So I was thinking that if we got a big play reciever ala CJ (even though this example prolly wont work out) CJ could be our randy moss and sanana moss could be our wes welker. Just a thought...please dont hate.

We sure as heck need somebody who is taller than 5'10".

Personally I say bring CJ on. But no first round picks please.

It would be a nice luxury to put Moss in the slot but I don't see it happening.

My bad, I didnt fully express my question. I meant to also ask that if we could get someone of the skill of lets say...bernard berrian, could we make him our big play reciever and have moss be the slot.

Re: Can Santana Moss be Wes Welker?

ummm, yeah if he improved his hands 100% from last year. The slot is probably where he has belonged all along but we don't have the typical 1+2 wrs...

Re: Can Santana Moss be Wes Welker?

I think you move him around based on matchups and gameplan. Ideally we'd acquire a stud WR to team with Moss and ARE, and then you'd have the luxury of moving Moss and ARE in and out of the slot.

Without the ideal stud WR, I still think you move them around, but Moss generally belongs on the outside.

Without a doubt Santana Moss can outplay Welker in the same situation.

The real issues are:
Can Campbell play like brady?
Can the Oline block like the patriots?
Can Randle El draw a double/triple team like Moss?

Welker is fearless going over the middle, doesn't drop passes and doesn't get hurt. So I would say no.

Re: Can Santana Moss be Wes Welker?

I don't think so. I think Moss is a little too fragile to be that guy. Welker is a tough SOB and proved he can take a beating across the middle for a 16 game season. Moss can't stay healthy on the outside, let alone the slot!

No way in hell does SM outplay Welker. How would Moss hold up running all those patterns over the middle? He'd pull a groin within the first 5 games. He just can't take all the punishment running over the middle. Welker had something like 110 catches and the majority were right where the LB's roam. Moss is simply not that type of wr and never will be.

Re: Can Santana Moss be Wes Welker?

I always wondered why we got away from all the screens we threw to Moss and Cooley in 2005. We were probably the best screen team in the league that year. I wonder if Zorn's system will run anything similar.

Personally, I just hope Zorn has a slant route in his offense.

We didn't get away from it, teams simply adjusted to it.

Teams can adjust all they want but when properly excuted there's not much you can do. Maybe I missed it but we simply didn't run screens as much under Saunders.

If he does I hope we find a bigger WR to run them.
