Welcome to another edition of The Patriot Way, your number one source to all of the best Pats news from around the web.

Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston has a terrific piece on why the Patriots need to go after a receiver, heading into free agency, and the draft. Receiver is a big need for New England, and I personally hope they go after Emmanuel Sanders. He is a versatile wideout, with the explosiveness that can take the top off of a defense. He may be what the Patriots need to finally get over the hump as an offense.

Over at Pats Pulpit, Kevin O’Connor releases his review of running back LeGarrette Blount. Blount had an up and down year, but he finished it in a great way, dominating defenses all the way to the AFC Championship game.

Make sure to check out Duncan Day, newly added staff writer here at Musket Fire, and his first piece on the job. He gives reasons why a Super Bowl win next year will solidify Tom Brady’s spot as the greatest quarterback of all time.
