I mean, Denver. It is impossible to be a New England Patriots fan and not acknowledge that Bill Belichick's abilities are considerable and his success great.  But there have been hints all along that he takes it too far and doesn't know when to stop, as fanatics often don't.

This is evidence.  This didn't have to happen.  This is personalities, and I fault the Bill side 80% and the Wes side 20% here.  This was an affordable contract.  This is just inability to rise above pettiness.  New England may do well this season anyway.  Stuff like this does not mean that they have lost all skill and perspective.  But it's still just a childishness,  I wish Mr. Welker well, even if it is against us.

Here's my theory: Bill Belichick being the great marketing and PR guru that he is, realized that the Patriots-Jets rivalry had grown stale. It's so 1990s. So we need a new rivarly to rise to the forefront. Who better than Denver with Payton Manning?? Help build up the Evil Empire and PRESTO, a perfect PR enemy to last the rest of this decade. So Welker had to go to the Rocky Mt State. Heck, he may have been in on it and getting a huge bonus to play this scheme out.

So there you have it. This dovetails very well with my other theory about Belichick, that he's planning to launch a new line of men's fashionware this coming Fall

This was the right move. We're just all too much fans to admit it. We picked up a guy with equal, possibly better skills, five years younger, for the same price.

I'll miss Welker all the same. He and Woodhead were my two favorite players, and now I lost them both at once.

Maybe I should be reading the Denver Post after all. I have to get my Broncos news four days later by reading your blog?
