Flashback from this offseason to this article I put together for Welker’s Top 10 games with the Pats. Every catch and especially touchdown, I’ve seen him get this year with the Broncos felt like a stomach punch. Can’t even imagine what it will feel like when they’re coming at the Pats’ expense this weekend (assuming, as Brady does, that he will play).

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened…
Funny how this morning the story is that Welker is glad he’s to be free to be himself outside the Patriots, and then this afternoon this happens….
It was bittersweet writing this one, but a somewhat cathartic exercise. It was six great years, Wes will be missed.
Going out on a a great tribute. Wes was a joy to watch, and a legendary Patriot who will one day be in the Hall. Thanks for the memories, it sucks we could never seal the deal together.
