    Hey all ... realized some good news -- the offseason is just about halfway over. (Just over four months from the season finale against Buffalo, and just over four months until the season opener.) To that end, I have a story today that looks at the Patriots at the midway point of the offseason, taking a look at the major events and what they meant to the long-term future of the franchise.

    Thanks, Chris. Nice job in refreshing our memories and taking stock.

    Is it my memory, though, or is there a Wheatley/Wilhite mix-up? (I think it was TW who became a starter and then immediately injured his wrist.)

    Would like to have seen Smith get mentioned at the end with a possible battle for the tight end spot among Thomas, Watson, Baker, Listori, and Devree but otherwise great read an analysis.

    I think your correct it was Wheatley that started and then injured himself in the Indy game he was having a pretty good game. I believe Wilhite actually started down the stretch and played pretty good. By the way Mike Richardson is their 6th cb and they like him alot hopefully he can stay on the field this year.

    #91 Jersey

    I'm a fan of richardson.
    I think he's almost 6"1.
    Saw him in camp, he looked fast and fluid.

    It's going to be fun watching our young guys try to cover Randy, Wes, and Joey in training camp.

    Of course. Look at this way, those of us who have very few facts at our disposal have to use them when we can. :)

    Mike ... that was my screwup. I take full responsibility for it. The edit has been made.

    Nice piece, Chris, and a great reality check.

    But you really should have mentioned that when Moses first found the Israelites worshipping the golden calf, he smashed the first Tablets of the Law. Those tablets in their smashed form were shuffled around until they found their way back into the then-volcanic Mount Sinai, which once spewed ash and pumous as far as Crete. That pumous floated over the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic ocean, and to the shores of Jamaica, thence onto the local beaches. A man and a woman in love in Jamaica in the 1980s performed a very natural act on one said beach, rolling in the ash-infused sand, unintentionally introducing the Tablets of the Law into the conception of a child... And twenty-one years later, with the 34th pick of the draft, the Patriots selected the Chosen One, Patrick Chung.*

    *some historical facts have been simulated for dramatic effect and fan-boy hysteria.

    Chris, I don't know if Hunter Thompson himself could have written those words ... :D
