Re: my top-10 WR duos going into 2012
Welker/Lloyd more talented than Cruz/Nicks. Really?
Nicks is the best of the bunch. He is physically superior in every way, gets open, proven performer in big games, etc.
Cruz is at least as good as Welker right now. I actually think he's slightly better because he can run by you on the outside, Welker rarely does this, if ever.
NY's duo is bigger, faster, stronger to go along with the actual wideout skills like route running, understanding concepts, etc...and they're way younger....but somehow NE's guys are more talented even though both are on the downside of their career.
