  • Who would you rather have in the slot- Victor Cruz or Wes Welker?

    How crazy is it that this is a legit question?

    I'd go with Cruz because of age, big play ability and upside.

    Thoughts?

    agreed. cruz seems like a much bigger big play threat. tho u cant go wrong with either really.

    and welker seems to have a bit more shiftiness to his play although both have crazy good footwork.

    cruz is the new school welker imo.

      Two completely different players. I think it's unanimous in terms of who you'd prefer in skillset, but let's just hope that Cruz has the annual consistency of Welker.

        Cruz is a Wide Receiver. Welker is a slot receiver. 2 dimensional vs 1 dimensional. Its and easy answer to any unbiased person.

            Honestly I would compare Welker to what we had in Steve Smith. He's a chain mover. He makes plays when they are needed and gets the yards u need. Cruz does this too. But what cruz brings that neither Welker or smith does is the big play ability and after the catch yardage.

            I'm taking cruz all day

              Here is a good way to judge WRs:

              Wes Welker gets only 12.9 yards per catch and has 6.2 yards per YAC..... He is mostly getting like around 6 yard passes, short crossing routes or quick screen passes and turning up. He really isn't a big play WR at all. I know Brady is a dink and dunker but Welker is the king of dink and dunking WRs.

              Victor Cruz gets a very high 18.7 yards per catch and has 7.4 yards per YAC..... He can take a short route, break a tackle and go for big yards and he could also go 40 yards deep and make a diving catch. Much better well rounder receiver. And it helps to be 3 inches taller and 20 pounds heavier than Welker.

                No offense to Welker; he is a fine receiver. But I choose CRUZ.

                    Both are fantastic players, can't go wrong with either one. Welker has been fantastic for many years, and to still play like he is playing after his knee injury just shows you how tough the kid is.

                      I'll take Cruz's 18.7 yards/rec vs Welker's 12.9 yards/rec. A game changer.




                      How many receivers can play the slot well, run excellent downfield routes,and also have great YAC? He is smart enough to avoid unnecessary hits too when playing the slot. Steve Smith was great in the slot, but couldn't run downfield routes and had no YAC.

                        Cruz and Welker are the best slot receiver's in the Nfl right now ,but age you would have to pick Cruz

                          Brady would pick Welker, Eli would pick Cruz. They'd both be right. I hope Cruz has a comparable career.
                          Welker's stats, this season mirror, Calvin Johnson's. Cruz's numbers are off the chats for an UDFA or a #1 pick and his big play threat makes everyone better.

                            W. Welker

                            8 Rec

                            160 yards

                            2 TD

                            But he dont have big playablity... Cruz and Welker are the same. you have to remember Welker is the ONLY WR the Pats have other then TE. So everyone keys him then the TE.

                              So as for me and a slot WR Smith... Still love me some Cruz tho.
