    #75 Jersey

    For a moment, I thought "Troy's back"? Then I felt a little sad. Then I got over it but still had an eye on #80.

    I think its sacrilege that they have someone wearing #80. Though I wouldn't mind if it was Edelman, I guess.

    #91 Jersey

    My first thought, Troy Browns in the game like he had never left. Second thought its strange seeing someone else wearing it.

    I didn't get the game down here, so I didn't pick that up. But, that's pretty much my reaction...and I suspect it would be Troy's as well. Better than anyone, he knew what it meant to fill your role and do your job. If that number has now gone to someone else who's going to make a difference here, then let's be happy about that.

    I said that to my friend last night and he responded with, "I was just thinking the same thing." Funny how seeing another #50 or #16 wasn't quite a painful as seeing #80.

    #11 Jersey

    It's funny, I did a double take seeing #80 too, but at the time it didn't register why. :rolleyes: I just kept looking at Smith and thinking "he looks out of place somehow."

    #12 Jersey

    It felt strange to see another #11 on the field too.
    This one runs a little faster than the old one though...

    Are you sure it's not just your faulty memory? :p

    I don't mind Smith wearing Troy's number. The man makes the number, not the other way around. No one is going to forget what Troy Brown means to this organization just because someone else is wearing his number.

    I just hope no one judges Smith more harshly because of the sentimentality #80 evokes.

    Of the past 10 years of Patriot players, which Patriot numbers would you retire in the future (if any)?
