    Hey all ... just wrapped up a Q&A with new tight end Alex Smith had with a handful of reporters down here at Gillette Stadium. Really interesting stuff worth checking out -- he talked about Tom Brady, Joey Galloway, Daniel Graham and what it means to wear No. 80 in New England.

    Great job Chris

    He sounds like a Pats kind of guy and there's definitely the opportunity there for him, Baker and Thomas to emerge and challenge Watson for the #1 TE spot

    It's times like these that I am just surprised that as soon as Troy Brown did not come back that they just didn't retire his number on the spot. I mean come on.. no one.. and I mean NO ONE should ever wear Troy Brown's jersey. He has, in a lot of ways, defined this decades Patriots. Maybe I am too much of a Troy Brown homer fan.. but I wish they would of just retired the number in Troy's honor. He has done so much for this organization's persona.

    #12 Jersey

    Thanks, Chris, for your usual great job. I know it's likely at least partially the "company line", but it's interesting how virtually every player who comes here mentions that prior to his arrival he only heard glowing things about the organization. I'm not sure I'd expect anything else, but it's interesting, nonetheless.

    I tend to agree with you, and I'm not someone that thinks numbers should be retired willy-nilly. Of all the Patriots of the winning era....actually of all the Patriots since I've been following the team in 1990, the only two that I think should be retired are No. 12 and No. 80.

    That seems to be the writing on the wall. I can't see a place for him barring a major injury to one of the other three.
