    Nice job. The Warfield signing was up the day it happened. And, in general, it's a pretty comprehensive, non-boosterish, just-the-facts, spot for Pats info. Though I'm not sure why Andy Katzenmoyer merits inclusion under the 'notable alumni' section. :)

    Definitely. While I was searching the net for information on Eric Warfield, I noticed that on Wikipedia his profile was already updated with information about being on the Patriots, and that he was already listed on the New England Patriots team.

    Kudos to whoever has been updating that.

    That's the beauty of Wikipedia: anyone can edit it, including anyone on this board. It also tends to be well-monitored, so that any attempts at "vandalism" are quickly undone.

    If you want the opposite extreme, usatoday.com (sports page, NFL home) has team reports for each team. The depth chart section there tends to show the depth chart from 4-13 months prior!

    The article on the main Pats page is not exhaustive, but it's got the most important facts. Good place to go if you can't remember the years Fairbanks coached or whch numbers have been retired. There is a separate page with an excellent history of the Pats:

    Thank you for the post. What an excellent reference. Were Ian to ever consider a FAQ, a link to this page on Patriots history should be a cornerstone.
