Welker and he is no Hines Ward. He is. Smart dude though, because he did the punting thing. He could be a secret weapon that I could see a team like that Pats taking in the 7th or via free agency.
My comparison of Coale to Hines Ward was for the type of player/skill set, not the talent level, that Danny possesses. My mistake if I inadvertently conveyed that in my comparison. Also, please use "Reply with Quote" as board etiquette.
Faster than either Welker or Ward, great hands and runs super patterns. Welker succeeds because of the system that NE plays, not from talent...... he is a good route runner and has good hands (although it didn't look like it in the Super Bowl when all the chips were on the line), but a slow copy of Danny Coale. Great white hope? Poor analogy. But he is still wide open. The only thing the punting adds is as a game-situation replacement if the real punter is injured.
