    Trivia item that may be interesting only to me:

    I would venture to guess that in Brady (no need for a T.) and Thomas (no need for an A.) we have to have the best combination of two former sixth round picks in the league. But it also seems likely that there have NEVER been two better sixth round picks on the same team at the same time. It's hard enough to think of any other great sixth rounders, let alone TWO on the same team at the same time.

    I challenge anyone to come up with two better ones.

    I'd hate to be the one to have to look that comparison up so I'll just agree with you.

    I know Terrell Davis and Matt Hasselbeck were six round picks.

    But as to your question I dunno.

    How about Bryan Fletcher and Cato June? hahaha. just kidding :) yeah, i think i'd have to agree with you! Brady and Thomas are the best 6th round draft picks on the same team at the same time and arguably the best 6th round draft picks ever!

    Yes. Thomas was drafted something like 15 picks before Brady.

    Best ever is a stretch. Terrell Davis is a fantastic player. However, Jack Christiansen, a DB with the Detroit Lions, is the only 6th rounder in the Hall of Fame until Brady steps in, so it looks relatively certain that these are the best two 6th-round picks on the same team ever.

    What do you mean by stretch? I said the best TWO ON THE SAME TEAM AT THE SAME TIME. Come up with two others on the same team at the same time who were better.

    Besides, Brady is arguably the best ever - I wouldn't trade him in his prime for Terrell Davis in his prime or ANY DB straight up - would you?
