    Although I absolutely worship Welker, when #83 pops into my head, Branch's face is still on it.

    Hopefully that'll change as the season progresses.

    Before the season began I thought of Deion (unfortunately). Now, I think of the better player. :)

    I still think of Deion and was disappointed to see him go, but I absolutely loved the trade that bought Welker to the Pats. I watched him in several games and the guy is just like one of those bugs in Cleveland just buzzing around annoying the other team. He is another blue collar type of player that fans in New England can relate to.

    Just bought a Welker Jersey and received it Saturday night. That must have helped his impressive performance. I won't forget Branch and the things he did, but Welker has so much character and is a lot of fun to watch.

    Branch, but Welker is catching up.

    Branch's performances in SB38, AFCCG vs. Pitt and SB39 will always be remembered very fondly, despite the later holdout.

    I still think of Branch from time to time when I see the 83 jersey but since Welker's wearing it now he's who I think of most. Really, I think of Welker all the time.....got kind of a man crush on him :p

    When I think of Welker I think of an NBA point guard like John Stockton or Steve Nash. Great feet, quick, great hands, can change direction on a dime, knows how to use his body to get in position, etc.

    I have a mancrush on him too. I'm hoping Tom doesn't get jealous.

    I genuinely never think of Branch at all until I'm reminded of him somehow.

    One of two Patriot numbers with Superbowl MVPs 12 -(twice) and 83 (Deion) can never be forgotten.

    That said Welker is nobly continuing the legacy that Branch left behind. I wouldnt mind at all if he got #83 its second superbowl MVP, he certainly looked the part in Dallas.

    I don't want to comment on the other #83. This #83 is better.

    #24 Jersey

    Welker. Honestly, when I opened the thread I had completely forgotten that The Twig was #83. I may have missed him last year but this year he's nothing.

    holds the record for catches in consecutive super bowls......if he stuck around, he could have surpassed all of Jerry's Super Bowl records.

    Honestly, #83 is still Branch's. I hope Welker gets to play in the Super Bowl. Until then, Deion wins.

    Deion comes to mind first. I'm glad we have a faster, superior 83 now though.
