Once again, introducing the wit and vitriol of my friend Al Bedrosian. Al's hobbies include riding dirt bikes, collecting guns, shooting bows and arrows, drinking cheap but not light beer and watching youtube videos of engines starting up. When he gets a spare moment, he also watches the Patriots. Back by popular demand, here's what he thinks of them.
With just three days until free agency hits the NFL, the Patriots have yet to lock up Wes Welker. Coming off another 100 catch season the veteran receiver should expect a lucrative contract, and keeping with tradition the Patriots are in no rush to ante up.
This time it may be different though, because Wes is no ordinary receiver. You could call him elite, but that word gets passed around an awful lot these days.
One could simply say he does his job, and he does it better than anyone else in the NFL.
The Patriots need him, and here’s why.
The penitent man will pass.
To be a wide receiver you have to have a lot of things: s...

The National Football League free agency period has begun and the top wide receivers are already getting a lot of attention. Wes Welker, Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings are a few of the big names that are receiving a lot of of coverage so far with Welker being the most interesting of the bunch. There were early reports that Wes Welker and the Patriots were close to finalizing...
The Miami Dolphins went into 2012 barren at wide receiver. Chad Johnson couldn’t even make it through training camp and Brian Hartline did an admirable job during the season, but it was obvious Miami needed to upgrade the position.
The Dolphins have already re-signed Hartline, they’re considered the front runners for Mike Wallace and now they’re interested in Wes Welker, according...

Wes Welker turned in yet another.. er.. ppr studded season. He hauled in a whopping 118 catches for 6 touchdowns. While Julian Edelman was nipping at his heels during the early portion of the season, Welker, in the...
Contract negotiations between Wes Welker and the New England Patriots have gone to opposite sides of the spectrum and everywhere in between in a matter of days. I have ridden the Welker Contract Roller Coaster now for two offseasons in a row, and I have spent hours wondering about his future. I live and think like someone living in the modern Western world, so I think in terms of...
The New England Patriots appear ready to lose Wes Welker. There is already talk around the Web about who his replacement is going to be. Can they be seriously thinking of just letting Welker walk right off the team and losing the chemistry him and Tom Brady have? The Patriots must not be very good at the bargaining table. There should be some way to cut a deal that would make both...
According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Vikings wide-reciever Percy Harvin has asked to be traded. While recently refusing to discuss his status with the team, it has now become quite clear that Harvin is unhappy in Minnesota. It has been rumored that he is not pleased with the coaches’ plans for him on offense and that he does … Continue reading »
With so much of the attention surrounding Wes Welker in recent days, the future of the Patriots other Pro Bowl receiver has been kicked to the back burner.
At this time last year, rumors were swirling about Brandon Lloyd‘s potential addition to the Patriots’ receiving corps. Just one so-so season later, though, it appears the team might be in the process of parting ways with...
With Adam Schefter reporting that Wes Welker was going to test the Free Agency and Greg Bedard claiming that Brandon Lloyd has an inconsistent attitude and is likely to get released, the gaping hole that is the New England Patriots wide receiving corps has been shoved into the limelight.
Their depth chart, if they don't have retain Wes Welker, Deion Branch, and Brandon Lloyd...
Free Agency is tricky because it can drastically change team’s draft plans. A team that wants to draft a top wide receiver in the first round could sign Mike Wallace or Wes Welker and as a result, their draft plans must change. Speaking of the draft, it’s tough to predict how the draft will turn out because nobody really knows what will happen on draft day thanks to trades and...

Everything from QB to RB, and WRs also.I'll list them all. Now, if you...
Not really any sudden or surprising news here, but the possibility of free agent WR Danny Amendola becoming a New England Patriot seem more and more likely. So this has been considered almost a gimme for a while now, but with Wes Welker deciding to test the market, Amendola could be a factor in Welker's contract negotiations. Writer Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com says that...
Building your team is about eliminating risk. That’s what “experts” said after they suggested taking Maurice Jones-Drew over Adrian Peterson last year. It’s a wise piece of advice. Others use the “go big or go home “strategy. It works both ways. One team gets Andrew Luck and the other gets Robert Griffin III. You get Arian Foster, I get Peterson. Drafting that way is...
Before we get too crazy, NFL.com's Marc Sessler made it very clear that there is a difference between 'interest' and actually making moves to acquire a player. Anyways, an NFL source recently said that the Patriots "have some interest" in the top free-agent WR Mike Wallace.
Sam Reilly wrote a convincing argument as to why the Patriots need a guy like Wallace...
It's been a while since we've posted on Foxboro Blog. You can blame part of that on the fact that the gap between the Super Bowl and the start of free-agency is the dullest time of the NFL calendar, unless you happen to be a combine nut. The other part is pure busyness as I've been working my tail off on a project that will redefine Foxboro Blog as well as the rest...
