The past few offseasons have been frustrating to fans in that we've seen all the free agents we wanted signed off to other teams. In '05 we watched Derrick Mason, Ed Hartwell and Kenny Lucas go eslewhere while we brought in David Terrell, Monty Beisel and Duane Starks. Last year we seemed to sleep through free agency, adding Caldwell and a bunch of special teams guys. It was a real pisser. With the news that Wes Welker will be signed to an offer sheet, it strikes me that the Pats are making exactly the moves that the fans were wanting. All season, we've raved about Adalius Thomas and how good he'd look in our 3-4 defense. We assumed that he'd cost too much to come here. After the Miami games we raved about Wes Welker. How he kills us each time we play, how he's the quick posession guy we need, and how his versatility on special teams is perfect for us. We assumed that we wouldn't spent the 2nd rounder necessary to get him. I'd like to take an opportunity to say "thank you" to the Pats organization for giving me exactly what I want this offseason. And while we're at it, could you find a way to trade up to get LaRon Landry in the draft, I've been drooling over him for about 15 months now.
