It will be interesting to see how much losing Welker effects Brady. Brady didn't start putting up the huge numbers until Welker and Moss came to NE. Whenever Welker has been out of the lineup, Brady and the offensive production has gone way down. Look at the numbers from early this season when Belly was trying to send a message to Wes by keeping him out of the lineup.
Who knows, maybe Edelman or another player jumps right into the slot and they don't miss a beat, but I have a feeling that won't be the case. Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for Tommy-boy
