When I was watching the superbowl the other night, I was amazed at how effective Wes Welker was fohe Patriots and the effort he gave on every play. Then I started thinking, why don't more teams use these tiny, super quick WR's. Then I remembered we tried that with Dante Hall. He was quick, why wasn't he successful....

I think the lesson learned is how important it is be to an effective route runner. You hear lip service all of the time about the imprtance of route running as a WR. Wes Welker is living proof that route running is a lost art and is not just hype.

Just my .02

I think Welker has better hands that Dante did, but I agree on the route running. Jerry Rice wasn't the biggest guy and wasn't the fastest guy but he was the best for a reason.

Not to mention that Welker is twice the receiver than Dante ever was. Back in the day there was ( sorry Canada ) Don Bebe, Ed McCaffery and more recently was Brandon Stokley.

I would have to agree that Dantes hands weren't great, and add that he never looked comfortable playing WR.

And, uhh... are we just going to overlook Marvin Reggie in Indy? Those guys live off of great route-running, and excellent hands.

(I know, you were just pointing out the successful slot-recievers, but I had to slip those names in somehow.)

Ur right!! I was speaking of slot guys! I think I may take Wayne over Harrison these days. Eventhough Marvin was and probably still is a great receiver.

Yeah I wished he would have ended his career in KC like Montana did.
