Im not talking about bombs(which he's not very good at either) Im talking about the types of throws Rodgers can make consistently...that even Flacco makes....Eli can make...what Russel WIlson was doing last year....
Brady isnt that type of passer. They're extremely well coached and he's accurate as hell within 10 yards...but when teams press and force the Pats to beat them...they struggle a bit.

There's some truth in what you say about Brady, but what separates him is that he has the arm strength to make more throws and the brain to see more than most other QBs. He also protects the ball by resisting the usual urge to force things. All of those factors make up for the less accurate long passes that he throws.
As for Welker, anyone who doesn't see what makes him special isn't paying attention. His supposed replacement, Julian Edelman, will mean a drop-off in the passing game. He might be more shifty on screens, but he drops a lot of passes. I hope Welker comes back and they add a deep threat. That and a little defensive help and they'd be off to the races.
