Since when is a second and seventh round pick a bag of old socks. It never fails to amaze me how people look through a lens of three years and say a trade was giving up nothing for something . . .

Welker's career high prior to coming to the Patriots was 67 receptions for 687 yards. I remember what the consensus opinion was on the trade and the scouting report on Welker:
1. The Patriots were said to be stupid for making the trade and were grossly overpaying for a 3rd receiver.
2. Welker was one of the worst receivers when it came to yards after the catch.

That is what was said, emphasis on the one of the worst receivers on yards after the catch, that is what was said about him. But of course - three years, 346 receptions, and 3688 yards later - it is now the Dolphins gave him up for nothing and it had nothing to do with Evil Bill seeing something in a player which few others saw, particularly in how he confounded the Patriots' secondary. After all, Miami could have simply matched the 3rd year offer sheet.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, and I know this is your forum, but when you are wrong (and hopelessly biased, as all die-hard fans are, and allowing it to color your thinking), you are wrong.
