Yeah, Moss had no career until he arrived at NE. Welker had a bazillion catches in college and 67 in MIA. Branch was comparable in SEA.
Wiggins was better when he left NE for MN.
I missed on Fauria in CAR but he was better in SEA
I've already said, early on, that Brady deserves a lot of credit for NE success. But you guys are acting like it was Brady and a bunch of slugs. It wasn't.
This reached pointless yesterday but I'll repeat it just for the hell of it.
Colston(7th round pick), Moore/Thomas(undrafted) and Bush(never a full season in NO) are no better/no worse than what Brady had.
Garcon, Collie, Stokely and Addai/Donald Brown are no better/no worse than what Brady had.
If you want to say Wayne/Harrison/James were, I can't argue that but you can't argue that the players that the NFL thought were castaways were actually really good players that NO/Indy lucked into and that the ones NE got were really just castaways that Brady elevated.
