    As I have said before Edelman is one of my favorite players. Switching from QB his field smarts, athleticism, and clutch mentality has been invaluable to the Pats and Brady.

    Most of us have played along side of a tough as nails quick twitch little shit and loved it, but when you look at comparative career stats around the league it would be tough to put him in the hall as yet.

      With him I don’t know if it’s career stats as much as post-season stats. In 18 career playoff games, he has 115 catches for 1,412 yards and 5 touchdowns. In a little over one full season’s worth of playoff games, he has stats that would be worthy of a Pro Bowl for any given season.

      I wish there was an objective measure of clutch catches as a key to important wins. It seems Edelman is the guy that comes up with catches when they’re absolutely needed, and from that the Patriots then win. Jeremy Gallon was a little like that for Michigan.

      I’m hoping Oliver Martin is also that guy.

        I’m hoping Tarik Black is that guy. Martin’s got an uphill battle for relevance given the many incoming recruits and at least 3 classmates ahead of him. Some transfer smoke…

      Interesting that the article ignores the PED suspension. Barry Bonds would appreciate equal treatment.
