    So I was playing around online and found a really interesting website.
    Archive.org

    You may ask yourself what does this have to do with the pats - well, this website lets you search online for old websites. Found an interesting one right after Bledsoe went down. :O

    Oh how times have changed. :)

    Re: OT - Interesting Find

    I always liked this little gem:

    GoPats.com - Patriots Unofficial - Clint's Corner Archive

    "The Patriots other selections are hardly worth mentioning...

    The Pats made some waves in the 6th round with the selection of Michigan QB Tom Brady...The last thing the Pats needed on draft day was a 4th quarterback, but perhaps this pick is not as senseless as it first seemed. Brady does not possess the raw physical tools of a Chad Pennington, Tim Couch, or Peyton Manning, but he has shown a knack for leadership and getting the job done in the big games...

    Should this guy be ahead of Frieze and Bishop on the depth chart? No. Should the Pats carry 4 quarterbacks? No. If Brady can stick on the practice squad and perhaps spend a season in Europe, he could emerge as a solid backup behind Bledsoe after Frieze is gone and Bishop is off playing AA baseball someday. With this pick coming in the 6th round, it can hardly be considered a risky one."

    Nice find - gotta love the Bishop backers.... heck there were probably some who favored John Friesz or Scott Zolak over Brady!

    Re: OT - Interesting Find

    Funny read. I liked this little nugget...

    "Brady has been named by Belichick to start Sunday against Indianapolis.

    If nothing else, this injury to Bledsoe could be, believe it or not, the best thing to happen to the Patriots for the long term. "

    :)
