Hello there! My name is Tommy. I am a 20 year old college student at Bridgewater State University. I am passionate about Boston sports: the Bruins, Celtics, Red Sox and Patriots especially. However, most of my blog here are random reblogs of things I find interesting, funny, entertaining or meaningful. I am also heavily intrigued with some TV shows, such as The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. While I do blog about the Patriots a lot, this is a personal blog and be wary that most of my posts actually are not related to the New England Patriots. With that, give me a follow if you find my reblogs and posts entertaining, and I'll likely follow back! Check me out on twitter @TGoodale

 

I feel for Amendola right now. He’s coming into a pretty tough situation. Everybody is going to expect him to replace Wes Welker’s success. He’s going to be heavily watched to perform as well as Welker did. While he should be expected to hit certain numbers, like over 1,000 yards, around 5+ touchdowns, at least 80-90 catches, Welker’s 112-catch-per-season statistic was legendary. No player had ever caught over 110 passes in 5 seasons other than Welker.
Remember, no player is the same as another. It’s unfair to always compare Amendola to Welker, even though it’s going to happen. It’s unfair to say who would we rather have. Right now, everybody wishes we kept Welker. Imagine coming into a situation like that. Where nobody wants you, just the guy you’re replacing.
I’m glad that Amendola is here and I’m excited to watch him play. I think he’s going to do great these next five years.
