    Good news. I can imagine him with 6 though. Pointing to his chest after every TD catch. Oh well, rules are rules.

    I like the idea of the pointing at the 6 after a touch down, but a WR wearing #6 is just to weird, IMO.

    It's not weird. It's just not allowed by NFL rules.

    (OK, it is weird.)

    I looked to see if the pro shop had it listed yet and found this gem they are now selling.

    Yeah, maybe thats why it seemed weird to me, because I haven't seen it before. I forgot that its not allowed.

    I love the bits and pieces on all the personnel... with Geno having a down year in 05, and being injured so much, I totally did not remember he had played just about every game for three years (including 05). I had associated his "bad" year with his injured time, and in my mind sort of written him off and/or forgotten him. Well, especially with the situation we have now, it is good to have him back & healthy!

    (Built in problem with linking to a Reises pieces column - sorry about the hijacked thread, all done now.)

    Yeah that's alright, I would rather have him switch with Watson and wear 84. But 81 works for me, it beats #6. As long as Moss stays healthy and scores Td's, that is all I care about.

    Awesome. I can look for him tomorrow with ease now.

    Maybe 6 would have been easier.

    O well.

    What number was Tony Gaiter? God, we had some awful WR here. Ray Crittenden, Michael Timpson, yikes...

    Yea, 81 isn't really a "thight" number, it's just "aight". I'd say 84, 82, 85, 83, 86, 88, and even 87 are all better numbers.

    18 reversed i get.

    But going back to the number 6 for a second it just came to me that he might have raised quite a few flags with that.

    Taunting anyone? Pointing to his chest after every score? Seems like the switch came at a good time.

    Yea, I know it's a reversal of his number in Oak, I just don't really think of it as a flashy number.

    Nothing wrong with #81

    For those of you who forgot,arguably the best TE in Patriots history wore #81 - Russ Francis

    Francis will always be 81 to me but look at the list of scrubs at WR who have worn it since then and I have no problems with it.

    They did, but they un-retired it when Bethel came.

    I'd argue that statement, was a huge Russ Francis fan (can still hear Howard Cosell calling him All-World), but Ben Coates has set a standard that will be tough to beat.

    Want to know who else wears #81? Calvin Johnson. :)

    Who else has worn humble #81?
    Torry Holt, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens, etc.

    I'll find more later but that's just off the top of my head.

    So does Kevin Lee.

    I remember when I thought Vincent Brisby was really good.

    Being a Pats fan sucked then.
