It’s Brady Week here at WEEI, a chance to reflect on some of the greatest contributions of the greatest player in Patriots if not NFL history (I’m starting to think 12 was pretty good). One of the highlights was a chance to interview former Pats receiver Wes Welker, who was very candid about his time in Foxborough, and his relationships with Belichick and Brady.
During their time they were somewhat heralded if not temporary local legends. Perhaps they felt some love during their playing days, but lack that all-time something, you know, for the effort? So, I sifted through the hundreds of responses from social media, socially distanced conversations at the radio station and salty text threads with friends and decided that these are the six most under-appreciated Boston sports stars (one for every beer I enjoy as part of my daily “quarantine lunch”).
