These four topics all be related to Wes Welker -- -- ball somewhere on -- near Yuma. West where where where is -- -- -- what's young Andrew Young Benjamin come up with the topic number one what is. Are it's another Tom Brady's -- has moved west and Tom Brady's forward thinking as I'm retired I don't know who was more important for Tom Brady in his career was as warmer Vicki what does that. -- Everybody had been diagnosed and get it and that was the question. -- who is more important for. Wes Welker -- -- The easy answer. With which lady when a two engine. And a discussion no one called -- when it now. Think that would bring -- I agree with and I think that guy you want to do the Super Bowl -- that's -- the country owes you this big. I just ask -- that's welcome Clinton the damn -- it would -- evidence talk. There's got to tell you though did you talk about it's it's such an unfair question you said earlier young Benjamin what to -- back it up. He -- you can easily make the case for both guys. What are you make the case where Welker. Has toured ground. Talk about birth to reality and sacrifice and being selfless and all these things blew -- -- he's 38 of why it. Or thirty playing defense the back. We're learning bonds being in the slot being on the perimeter. Everything winning championship winning championships. Playing with a broken nose against the other Carolina Panthers in super. All -- -- -- was Troy Brown ever like into being put into the patriots running game as -- vocalist. Most Welker was should've been a closet and a lot of cases plus what it was and while there's that he is the patriots running game -- -- dunks is it is seven yards -- time he was the running game the same time network. -- think it was any don't yet know what. I'll applaud you for trying to make me feel like to Portland evolves I applaud you for -- you agree with -- officers and I'll set -- -- But I don't put that someone else is -- agree with -- excellent -- -- anything Welker is clearly more -- Don't do you don't need proof that thrower or what you're America's case either. Anyway it -- brown was number two disbarment and of course. I think -- funny. As of right now we don't seem to think about with Wes -- is the big drops the drop in Super Bowl championship game but what is your opinion is the most memorable catch or west -- it would -- Miami when you win -- like. Heal the broken couple Apple's planned -- very -- this commitment to them but we was there. -- that and have some of the best here and listen Wes Welker robber dropped -- -- I. But I don't. -- -- back the other way that -- -- a lot bigger -- that games can -- for a couple reasons one they're playing that one yes was he right I think it's that if they keep the he broke away from but that ultimately -- and you can Google for ninety yards gonna have some speed right I think you're -- -- got a reality to -- well one of the gals on him right in the broken tablet. Guy could that -- got the balance of the year and it though I don't picky with you that again that they give you think about it you think about what. That's the other they -- again by and let you one of the greatest rift in the history of radio. We're in Tedy Bruschi that was the game -- -- later or 500 yards with relatively. Yeah and Ochocinco was like I'm in all it was great video everything it up close and Teddy just went off. Biggest. Let's look at oddly enough it was I think of the catch. It's Houston we -- -- because at that point he made the catch and suffered the injury. I kind of deep down inside. I thought he never play again at least not the level that he came back play so when I saw him come back and put up great numbers the last couple years. Aching back that catch -- himself it didn't in truth one that. Surgery. And Amanda yeah and this I'm thinking right now out boxes they operation they go operative. -- and run them now right they serve so what will remind you that he -- I'm not trying to kind of you know this is a great question error in the event because. There's not a memorable yet. I'm talking about Wes Welker and he's an important part of drop to -- and he's an important part of what they do what I don't have a memorable catch. I do it but what defines Wes Welker but it is he got a he took a pretty bad here. Against the Steelers here than in 20080. Well. We -- that -- -- I think you dropped the ball was over that he dropped it got off. The let the game or play and came right -- it's tough guy who was one my religion out of this Seattle game at CNET printed right. -- him that kept them. They're good question I was over there. All right as we know now the pitchers replaced Welker Danny Amendola who catches more passes and scores more touchdowns this season. I'm gonna go employment go out on the -- of them thing -- news. Well. Look at them that did get them when -- twelve touchdown where oh well it though that. It's maybe you entry. That he is immediately escorted -- in Ohio where he's -- For the hall of fame Jersey that he'll be wearing it about not -- a year it's undertaken to talk to us. But could you get I'm -- Welker. By night and I don't know. Nine touchdowns. -- a 118 maybe 95 catches -- Welker to it's a great. You've -- having the better player first of all that Danny Amendola. And -- -- the one I'll report back to another great system they got to these guys and -- to various Thomas a lot of room for him to negotiate underneath. It's going to be tough. Going to be tough to defend that Broncos need some -- Welker and now Diego and in general what is gone sighed if guys making the case for Wes Welker got our first question was more important Welker toward brown. This this is -- -- think I never thought I would see this written. In New England. Toward brown says that are there had nothing to do with those titles. They had a great defense back. Troy couldn't hold west through job you -- -- -- absolutely and I know Troy brown and he had like 96 catches glad that first year 2000 wow this -- -- talking about wow Beckham missed the pitch setting up the winning field goal. 41 yards baby in the presence of mind to get out of bounds what more play six yards to Jermaine Wiggins. 48 yards three. Later reports 2001 -- patriots are suitable to our brown a hundred -- one catches. 12100 yards and had nothing to do that Westwood at one point 825. I'd definitely definitely advocate can be -- might -- -- that we but that's -- scenario. Match smoker going from Palm Pre treatment. And fair was the final yards the most important one of course. Gisele. Or and it -- -- the. I listen to vote. As -- -- to -- big kids big kids that. All the time. You know.
