Misunderstanding of the Maya calendar has some believing the world will end in 2012. Those better-versed in their understanding of ancient civilizations believe that 2012 represents a reset of the clock and an ushering in of a new era on this world.

Welker is a phenomenal albeit aging receiver who has revolutionized both the way the Patriots and the rest of the league play the game of professional football.
