    No Jersey Selected

    Geno Cappelletti :)

    Oh, that is not what you wanted.:)

    I'd say Rodney Harrison, but rules have changed so much I'm not sure he could adapt. Tedy Bruschi?

    Like others, Harrison is tempting BUT...he would be a liability with the current rules giving up chunks of free 15 yarders.

    So my pick goes to...Ty Law, just to pair with Talib.

    My first inclination is to want a stud defensive player, but this has me thinking definitely Moss. IF he was in his prime, especially that rookie year, him and Brady would be unbelievable. He would haul in 30+ TD's IMO. He'd leave Richard Sherman in the backfield all twisted up in his jockstrap.

    Randy Moss and its not even close. He's the one player that can singlehandedly make an offense top 10 best ever.

    With Gronk it wouldn't even be fair.

    This is pretty much between Hannah and Tippett. I'll go Tippett but, Hannah would be awesome too. Never saw either play but, from what I hear Tippett was on par with LT but he didn't play in New York(Jersey) so he didn't get the same attention. Playing on a bad pats team didn't help his cause either.

    Has to be Moss.

    For Defensive line...Richard Seymore!
    For linebacker...Tippett!
    D-back...Ty Law!
    O-line...Hannah, of course!

    How about Russ Francis?

    Tippett was truly awesome, but man, when Hannah came pulling around the end, you could see opposing cornerbacks crying...

    Man I need to see a documentary on these guys. Isn't Hannah considered to be the greatest guard of all time?

    Really wish they made a documentary on the pre-90s Pats. I know there aren't many highlights so it probably won't be too long :rimshot:

    Russ Francis - hands down. What a compliment to Gronk!

    I am not old, but this thread has already made me feel so.

    Remember when Dexter Manley said he was going to knock Joe Montana out of the game (Francis was playing for the 9'ers)?

    Francis knocked Manley into the 90's! Boom!

    Disable Jersey

    Given the current makeup of the team?

    1.) Moss, by a mile


    2.) Seymour
    3.) Law
    4.) Coates



    I might put Coates above Law, depending on what I heard from McDaniels about how he wants to focus the offense.
