16875Re: [patriotzip] Re: Welker Injured
- Jan 3, 2010The Weker injury was a fluke ... that could have happened in practice. I just don't like losing while playing most of the starters. Why subject Brady to all those hits? They should have rested him. Hindsight is great I know. I'm OK with being the #4 seed (actually preffered it).<font face="comic sans ms" color="#438059" size="5">Mark </font>

Can't compare this to the Colts situation. Manning, Wayne, Clark, etc., played into the 3rd quarter against the Jets. This happened to Welker early in the first. Who knows how far he BB was going to let him play. You certainly don't want your starters to not play at all for two weeks, then expect them to turn it on in the playoffs.
I was surprised that Brady played as long as he did, however.
