    as much as I hate comparing him to a Jet, he is touch and has similar grittiness and talent. maybe even a little faster.

    Hey, Hines Ward is not white. You cannot compare a white reciever to someone who isn't white.

    Dude, Stokley is 5'11" and 195 pounds. Welker is 5'8" and 180 pounds. The only thing that Stokley and Welker share in common is their white skin.

    They are both slot guys who have good hands and are reliable to go out there and give it there all every game.

    Stokley is bigger and has much better top end speed.

    but yeah, the chrebet comparison is fair. they both have that "rudy" mentality about them, although welker's special teams play makes me think of tim dwight most of all

    I HATE the chrebet and welker comparisons, frst of all welker is way better on special teams, and he looks like he can be a better reciever as well..chrebet is a role player. the only reason they are being compared is bc they are both undersized white recievers. period.

    Size doesnt make that much of a difference in the NFL anymore. Look at Steve Smith and Santana Moss, both top receivers in the league today. So dont say size makes that much of a difference and Stokley isnt that fast either.

    clearly Steve Smith is the best WR in the league right now. just ask the Dolphin secondary.

    Until he contributes as much as Crebet does to the Jets offense, I wouldn't compare them...Welker is a nice player, but not all that special...In the slot, he is the worse of all the evils as far as who to cover one-on-one which accounts for his getting open. On STs, he is tackled by the first good hit...he's pretty small. He plays with grit and heart as you have said, but is not a great player yet...

    I think Welker has established his own identity by now, he is better than Chrebet.

    He reminds me of Dwight in term sof returning abilty, and he reminds me of Chrebet when he lines up in the slot.

    wait for him to breakout like a crebet/Mcafry? (how was that name spelled, WR of denver) when we get a QB who can get him the ball.

    I brought this up in August after really only seeing Welker play once or twice. I think he has the same work ethic and attitude too like you guys said. the term I used to describe him is he's a winner. The kind of guy who works hard and steps up when you need him.

    i think they become successful and good b/c they dealt iwth negativity there whole life about size height, athletic ability, or whatevre it may be and they become determined and harder workers such as a Z. Thomas.

    Hmm, I would say Wes Welker reminds me of a hybrid of Wayne Chrebet (for his receiving abilities) and Tim Dwight (for his kick/punt returning). Definitely don't see a similarity to Brandon Stokley other than being under 6 foot speedy receivers.

    Welker and Stokley also have very good hands and they bring their best game every Sunday.

    Chrebet is a good comparison. I think Troy Brown is a better one.

    Somewhat off subject...and I admit pure fantasy football...and I like Welker alot but think about our offense with Brian Westbrook playing Welkers' position.

    Would that be fun to watch or what?

    What would a defense do to prepare for us? Does anyone think Philly will let BW walk after this season?

    Eddie McCaffrey was 6'5" (the tallest receiver in Broncos history) while Wes Welker is maybe 5' 9".....it is hard comparing those two.
