Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin is the latest NFL analyst to enter the “best receiver in football” debate. Todd Haley and Jason Garrett both have Calvin Johnson at the top of the list, as does Andre Johnson. Rob Ryan ranks Miles Austin and Dez Bryant towards the top. But Michael Irvin? Well the former [...]

Something became noticeable in training camp. A year removed from knee surgery, in a contract year, Wes Welker looked ridiculous. He was fast, focused, and uncoverable in practice. Even the Patriots WR said he had never felt better in his career.
And guess what? As was clear in the Patriots 31-19 win over the Raiders, Welker wasn’t lying. He had nine catches for 158 yards and one...
Belichick said on WEEI yesterday that the Oakland game was Brady’s most impressive of the year, based on his audibles and decision making. Of course it’s not hard when Wes Welker is getting open every single down.
I’m very curious to see how the Jets deal with Welker. A one on one all day versus Revis would be fascinating to watch.
FOXBORO, Mass. -- While Tom Brady's assault on the record books may have slowed down a tad on Sunday, Wes Welker's surely hasn't. Welker had nine more catches for 158 yards in the 31-19 win over the Raiders, giving the...

We are mere hours away from the Patriots showdown with the Raiders, and it’s time to get geared up. Sure, it’s early. But not too early to start discussing the 4:15 p.m. game out in Oakland. Allow CB Devin McCourty and WR Wes Welker to help. Check out my video:
If you’re just getting into work and have a little time to kill, you might enjoy this. NFL Network’s Rich Eisen has a popular podcast, which you can find on this site (and on iTunes). And one of this week’s guests is Patriots WR Wes Welker.
The conversation — as it was with QB Tom Brady — is light and kinda funny, a much less serious Welker than usual. There’s a lot of...
OK, so we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves, but Welker is on pace to catch 160 balls this season....

Patriots receiver Wes Welker had another huge game on Sunday, and afterward he reflected on just what an amazing start to the season he has had. “I feel like this is the best I’ve ever felt, this is the best I’ve played in my career,” Welker said. “So I think just my attitude towards the…

New England's Wes Welker beats Oakland's Joe Porter on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady in the first quarter.
Raiders head coach Hue Jackson summarized the little roadrunner that is Wes Welker by saying, "He makes uncommon plays."
He might have expanded that to, "He makes uncommon plays uncommonly well."
The New England slot receiver, all 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds of quickness, craftiness and deceptive speed, continued his prolific start to the season Sunday at the Coliseum...
Rex Ryan has decided who star cornerback Darrelle Revis will cover on Sunday against the Patriots. On Wednesday, the game plans come out, and the Jets coach knows.
“Whoever we put him on,” Ryan said, when asked who Revis will cover. “How’s that?”
Not good enough. I told Rex, I thought you’d have figured it out by now.
“We have,” Ryan said. “But doesn’t mean I...
It's Jets week. In other seasons, before Rex Ryan got the job in New York, Pats-Jets was still a big deal. (Don't forget that Bill Belichick worked there long enough for a cup of coffee before bolting for the Pats' gig. That didn't sit well with the Gang Green folks.) But now, with Ryan's pre-game gum-flapping bravado and the Jets handling the Patriots in the...
Tom Brady moves his idol. Wes Welker continues to impress. And a rookie leaves a lasting impression. It’s all inside today’s edition of the Patriots.com News Blitz.
By the time the game ended, the Black Hole was filled with unused green seats and not a lot of fans. The Raiders faithful were gone.
They missed the end of the Patriots 31-19 win over Oakland, a steely effort for an injury-plagued team and a huge road victory.
QB Tom Brady was 16 of 30 for 226 yards in a so-so effort for him, and WR Wes Welker contributed nine catches for 158 yards...
