    Sad news. He was before my time, but always said to hear news like this.

    Another one of the too short but very quick DT tandem along with Jim Hunt. Two class guys, for those of you too young to have seen them play, they were the original Patriot defensive tackles for about ten years. The position was in good hands.

    Re: Patriots announce death of Houston Antwine

    He should have gotten in the NE HOF in 2011 when he was nominated for the 3rd time. I voted for the old dude and really wish he had lived long enough to see himself enshrined. It's not like Bledsoe is getting ready to cash it in any time soon. These NE HOF votes are bogus as most voters never even saw most of these guys play. Popularity contest only voted on by those who started following the team in the 2000's. :rolleyes:

    Re: Patriots announce death of Houston Antwine

    I remember him well as a kid playing for the Pats. I also recall a friend of mine from Tennnesee, back in my Air Force days, saying to me - "I don't know much about your Patriot team, except that fellow Houston Antwine is a damn good player".

    RIP Houston.

    Re: Patriots announce death of Houston Antwine

    I stuffed the ballot box trying to get him into the Pats Hall of Fame. He was the key piece of the early Patriots Defensive line. He allowed Hunt, Dee and Eisenhauer to do their thing, who all made it when he was by far the best of the four.

    Too bad he wasn't selected before he died.

    One of the best Patriots of all time and definately one of Ray Clay's favorites.

    My deepest sympathy to the Children and friends of both Houston and his wife.

    Re: Patriots announce death of Houston Antwine

    Erant gigantes in diebus illis.

    I often wonder what guys like Antwine, who were there in the days when the Boston Patriots played around the Sox at Fenway (necessitating a lot of September road games) and who remember a team that played a season at Alumni Stadium and another at Harvard Stadium, not to mention a game or two at Legion Field...I often wonder what these guys make of the billion dollar franchise the team has become, not to mention its stature as one of the premier franchises in the NFL.

    The current team, as great as it is, stands on the shoulders of (relatively) unsung giants like Houston Antwine.

    RIP, Houston.
