Thank you for posting that, Howard. I was very sad when I saw the news. Some things you shouldn't find out by looking at your phone.

I loved that group of overachieving receivers the Pats had back then - Patten, Troy Brown and David Givens. Deion Branch had to work hard to get his number called in those days.

I was especially fond of Patten's game, the joy he brought to the field, and the crucial catches he made in big games. RIP
