As you readership goes up, so too do the number of people voting in our online poll.

Granted, it is still a pitiful sampling for the viewers we are bringing in, but we will keep posting them here, and keep hoping that you will choose to participate. Last week’s poll focused on Wes Welker, the Patriots’ slot receiver who seem to fall out of favor after publicly expressing frustration over his contract negotiations with the Patriots this past off-season. Welker barely saw the ball in Week One, but that changed dramatically with Aaron Hernandez’ injury against the Cardinals yesterday. I voted that the Pats would trade Welker, but that looks very unlikely now that Hernandez is out for at least a month, so I now believe he will play out his contract and move on, with the Patriots not choosing to place the Franchise tag on him again.

Here are the poll results for last week, as well as our new poll for this week.

Poll #5: What will the Patriots do with Wes Wlker (19 votes)

He will play out his Franchise year and then move on to another team (9 votes, 47%)

The Patriots will sign him to a multiple year deal and he will finish his career as a Patriot (8 votes, 42%)

The Patriots will trade him before the deadline (2 votes, 11%)

I don’t know, but I wish he was on my favorite team (0 votes, 0%)

Poll #6: After Week Two, which head coach is on the hottest seat?

This week’s poll addresses coaches on the hot seat. We have two coaches (Rex Ryan and Andy Reid) whose season may well determine their coaching fate, and then we have a slew of coaches who have started the year at 0-2. Who do you think is riding the hottest seat?

Dennis Allen, Oakland
Romeo Crennel, Kansas City
Mike Mularkey, Jacksonville
Mike Munchak, Tennessee
Andy Reid, Philadelphia
Rex Ryan, New York Jets
Pat Shurmer, Cleveland

We’ll be back next Monday with the results and a new poll. In the meantime, move your cursor to our right sidebar and cast your vote!
