I voted Brady.
Without a doubt in my mind, it can only be the man behind center that first led a cinderella team to one of the most amazing upsets in Super Bowl history. That in itself might be enough to make him the GPP of all time but if that doesn't convince you, than how about 2 more SuperBowl victories in a row!?
And he is not through, yet.
No one else is even close.
I can understand the votes for Hog Hannah, though.
He was at least one of the greatest guards (if not THE best) in NFL history.
And he IS the only current lifetime Patriot in the HOF.
Is there anybody out there who does not think Brady will not be a first time ballot entry? Come on.
I loved Willie too, of course. He's a top ten greatest Pat in my mind.
Drew Bledsoe might make the top ten list for me too because he helped bring us some semblance of notoriety and a taste of the superbowl.
But I remember screaming at the TV for Carroll to bench him because he played so poorly so frequently.
My buddy felt the same way. One day I saked him how he thought the Pats would do the upcoming year (99) and he proclaimed.....
"The Patriots will never go anywhere as long as Drew Bledsoe is Quarterback"
LOL! What a prophet, huh.
Buonoconti and Haynes do not belong on the list because they are in the HOF wearing someone elses helmet.
