    Its no different from 2000

    As we all know, Wes signed a deal in Denver to play for the Broncos. Its disappointing that Wes won't be in a Patriots uniform for 2013, but change happens and I wish really Wes the best in Denver. What needs to be remembered is this is how the Patriots operate and they have been doing it this way since 2000, the Patriots don't make big splashes in Free Agency. As badly as a lot of us want them to make the big splashes, its not going to happen because they have a plan and they are sticking to the long-term plan. Wes is no different from the Past Patriots players that have played. A lot of fans get attached to certain individual players that when a transaction happens when that particular player is involved, you see the results, an uproar happens. Its no different from Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Willie McGinest, Richard Seymour, Asante Samuel, and many others. While it hurts to see them go, got to realize that change happens and its the one thing that is consistent in the NFL.

    You have to be more attached to the team and not so much the individual player.

    Nice to finally read a voice of reason, well said! Pat's will be fine, how many receivers do we need inside the hash marks? Pat's will address the speedy osd wr, perhaps in FA, trade or draft. They'll probably re-sign Edelman and pehaps Jeremy Ebert is ready to step up? Just as quick as Wes, and 6' 195Lbs. Edelman & Ebert will fill Wes' slot position and they'll add speed on the outside to open middle and still have Vareen catching out ofthe backfield, no worries, plenty of weapons on offese! Put $ into secondary an inside pass rusher, and LB who can cover and they'll be favored to win SB! Don't forget all the inhouse talent that didn't even play last year and one of the youngest rosters, we sure have become spoiled fans! Feels like mid 80's with Bird and the Celtics, Championship or bust!

    Let me ask this, how did it work out in 06' when they took the same approach with Branch and Givens or in 08' with Samuel. Didn't work then and hasn't work since so when something doesn't work it's time to change

    Think about this, how did Deion Branch do when he was in Seattle and how did David Givens do in Tennessee? Branch was okay, but not even close to his days with the Pats the first time around and Givens didn't last long as he was forced to retire due to a knee injury. Asante, he did well in Philadelphia, but wore out his welcome with the Eagles as they traded him.

    Let me ask this, how many super bowls did they gone on to win after their days with the Patriots?

    I understand that it hurt the Patriots as well, but the team is still having success without them.
