Like Boba Fett, Wes Welker is a cool-looking guy whose talent places him at the top of his profession.
Boba Fett is one of the top bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe, and Welker is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL.
The one thing they both have in common that makes this match perfect is that they both choked in a huge spot.
Welker could have delivered a Super Bowl championship to New England if he pulled in a difficult, yet catchable pass from Tom Brady with four minutes left in the game.
The opportunity was there, but Welker twisted to the ground helplessly as the ball hit the turf.
Like Welker, Boba Fett choked in the big spot as well.
In the epic Return of the Jedi desert battle scene, when Luke and his crew took down Jabba the Hutt's barges, Boba Fett was the Wes Welker of the operation.
During the battle, he launched himself off Jabba's barge onto the ship carrying Luke and Han. He landed and pointed his gun, only to have it sliced in half immediately by Luke's lightsaber.
Boba Fett then went to his backup plan and wrapped up Luke with a rope shot from his wrist. Instead of unleashing his fury at that point, Boba Fett fell flatly to the deck when the barge was shot at.
For the final act in his bumbling turn of events, Boba Fett regained his footing and misfired two shots at Luke. As he was lining up his final shot, a blind Han Solo knocked into Boba Fett's jetpack, sending him flailing through the air, screaming and waving his hands. He crashed into the side of Jabba's barge and tumbled to his alleged demise into the Sarlacc.
Talk about your epic choke jobs.
Boba Fett's performance in the clutch ranks right up there with Bill Buckner. Since this is a football theme, we'll settle for Welker, the most recent scapegoat who came up small in a big spot.
