    Only includes players who missed a significant amount of time. (7+ games)

    Bruschi, Warren, Morris, etc. (3 games each) can be your other choice as well.

    Harrison and Jordan aren't officially back for next year of course, but if you believe they will be - then an available option to choose.

    Adalius. The pass rush was dreadful without him. And his sack of Favre in the second game of 2008 still makes me tingly.

    I voted for Wheatley. My reasoning is that we all know what Thomas can do. He's as good as anyone in the league at 34 OLB when healthy. I'm really interested in seeing if Wheatley can keep that wrist healthy for a while. If he can, he is going to be an all-pro in this defense. He has all the tools to be a rare corner in this league for a long time. His agility and fluidity is very, very rare. I also think he is a high-character guy with a very high intellect. Yep, I said it. I think Wheatley will be one of the best in the league a few years down the line. Feel free to remind me of this in the future if he doesn't turn out to be as good as I think he will be.

    I voted for A.D. because I want to see our pass rush back and it was abyssmal after he went out. Besides him, I'm looking forward to seeing Maroney and Wheatley return simply because I want to see what they can do this year.

    Slam dunk here. AD was the guy the Pats missed the most.
    The Pats win that second game against the Jets if AD is on the field.
    Simple as that.

    I think losing Tank Williams was a decent loss as well,Any experienced help in the backfield would have been nice last season.

    I really want Wheatley back the most. For a couple weeks before his injury, he was really coming on.

    I was gonna say Adalius thomas being my fav player. But in reality we need to have a solid return of L. Maroney. I just hope his injuries aren't that popular with him this year.

    i think maroney is going to have a breakout year. they are definitely going to lean on him more early in the season to ease TB back. and if he dominates, i think itll help our offense later in the season to be more balanced

    AD was a HUGE loss. He's the one we need back the most imo. Losing Rodney was big too, but at this stage of the game he wasn't my FIRST choice which I feel bad saying :(

    Tank Williams was a big loss too; he'd be my #2 choice because I think BB had plans for using him in interesting ways.
