    If you could pick one of these three things this year for a great season from a particular Patriots player(s) what would it be from the selections below?

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Would you like to see Tom Brady have an unbelievable year and outgun Manning in stats and overall QB ranking to finally distance himself from the comparison of the nearly annual question of who is the best QB in the NFL?

    or

    Would you like to see Randy Moss play unstoppable like his first few years and show the media that it was the truth that all he wanted to be on is a winning team and really was not a cancer in his career up to this year,but was just a disgruntled player on bad teams but is happy and highly productive now?

    or

    Would you like to see Seau,Bruschi and Harrison show the media,league and fans that even though they are up in age and at the end of the line for their respective positions that they are still a force to be reckoned with and all of these 3 have a good productive year?


    WHICH OF THESE 3 WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN BEST OR MOST - ONLY 1 SELECTION !!

    I think options 1 and 2 are co-dependent to an extent. If Brady is having a lights out year, chances are, Moss is too. If Moss is "unstoppable", someone has to get him the ball, that would be Brady. Meaning he is having a great year too.

    Option 3 is an interesting one since I think you have to ask yourself, which option relies less on the performance of those around them. For instance, we expect the DL and the OLB's to play well. Is it critical for Seau, Harrison, and Bru to play well in order for this team to succeed? Or is it more critical for Moss and/or Brady to play well to get to the promised land?

    IMO, Brady has so many weapons at his disposal this year, that Moss can be "ordinary" and this team could still score 24+ per game. That being said, I would take a top performance out of the defensive guys.

    It would be great to see Harrison, Bruschi, and Seau all post 100+ tackle seasons, but Brady outgunning Manning would be fine for me. The argument against Brady in the past has been that he is a system QB who only plays well in a short passing scheme. But if he puts up 4000 yards and 30 tds with the weapons he has now, those numbers might counter the aforementioned thoughts.

    #4 - Maroney has a big, injury-free season, carrying the load as a primary back.

    As for the choices given:

    I can care less about Moss, and he's probably just here for 1 year anyway.

    Bruschi is done as an impact player, while Seau is solid but unspectatcular. I'd like Rodney to stay healthy as I think he still has it. I don't care about them proving anything.

    I guess Brady having a big year is my default winner. I don't really care about what kind of year Brady has as long as they win, but seeing him put up big numbers is fun to watch and it would silent some of the criticism he gets by idiot Dolphins fans. I think Trent Green is better than Brady this year.

    tough between 1 and 3

    here are my arguements:

    1: Brady definatley deserves more credit than Manning imo..regardless of stats, Brady should be the better QB from what they've done in the league. It would be nice to finally shut people up and give it to the most deserving man in the league


    2: Who cares..this is Randy's first year with us. If Brady has a big year..most likely means everyone on the offense had a big 1. I would take Brady or 1 of the 3 older defensive players over Randy. I love Moss as a player and all and respect him but watch him get more credit than guys who've been with us and been leaders in our 3 championships?

    3: A guy like Harrison really deserves a break. Injuries are unfortunate..a guy so good and tremendous leader deserves better than injuries and i would love to see Rodney get recognition again at his age. Same with Bruschi but he got back from that stroke and that was miraculous. Would be nice to get a ring or pro bowl after that comeback. Simply coming back from a stroke to me is enough. I would love to see him get more though. Seau..sure. Great player .. a HOFer. Nothing to prove.

    I would say 1 & 3 are close..Brady doesnt need a great season to be with Peyton as the 1-2 guys.We already know how great he is with decent WRs, giving him much better targets will just prove hes as good as Peyton if we choose to be like them in terms of passing.

    I like 3 personally because these guys deserve more credit..fell off the map a little and they havent proven they can play at a higher age because injuries

    Whichever option gets the Pats ring #4.

    If all options lead to that inevitability, then I'd like to see Brady have his big season. I don't give a **** about Moss proving anything..

    I'm going to go with option #5: The offense and defense work together to put up some sick point differentials, the Dline makes the leap, Brady to Moss rivals Manning to Harrison, and the Pats finally silence the critics that like to claim that the 70's Steelers and 90's Cowboys were better teams.

    I'd like to go with the unmentioned option of Thomas wreaking havoc on opposing offenses, BB looking like a genius yet again for aquiring him, and the Pats getting yet another SB Championship as a result.

    'defence' is something that divides your front yard from the sidewalk in front of it.

    defenSE is something that is used in football to keep opponents from scoring ;)

    Wheres the option that we beat the Broncos at home in the playoffs, then the Chargers in San Diego, then Indy in a snow storm in Foxboro? Then we dismantle some NFC team.

    That would mean we were a 3 seed. We'll be the #1 seed.

    Oh yeah.

    #2 if Moss has a big year (1000 yds/ 10 TDs) we will walk all over the opposition.
