Yet another way in which the Patriots are so much better than their competition it's hardly even funny

Before the season started, when Wes Welker was not yet a household name, TMQ pointed out the following tidbit that is on a par with the Pats' having snookered from the hapless 49ers a high first-round draft pick in a running-back-rich draft:

Consider the net of New England's many receiver transactions of the past 12 months... The aggregate of these transactions is that the Flying Elvii [i.e., the Pats] have Moss, Stallworth and Welker for approximately the same in salary-cap terms that it would have cost to retain Branch.
Let's see, you take Branch, we'll take Moss, Stallworth and Welker...wonder which one of us is going to kick the other one's sit-me-down-upon?
