    I'll need to take a while to consider who I put in my own top ten, but the first name that jumps out at me is Drew Bledsoe. I appreciate the effort and being part of turning the franchise around, but I don't think I'd include him in my top ten - certainly not #6.

    I'd flip Willie and Tedy, and Vinatieri would not make my top 10, but it's a pretty solid list.

    #91 Jersey

    Haynes was a great CB this seems a little low for him.

    A.V. is a kicker and doesn't belong on the list. Take him out, slide everyone else up one spot, and put Troy in at #10.


    Problem solved. Although, as I mentioned before, I'd put Bruschi above McGinest.

    Gotta love Tedy, but not sure he should be part of this particular list. Gino should.

    Why the heck should he be taken out considering all he did for the team in his decade+ with them?

    Because of his position? His defection? His lack of "athleticism"?

    1. Tom Brady

    3. Andre Tippett
    4. Stanley Morgan
    5. Mike Haynes
    6. Julius Adams
    7. Ben Coates
    8. Jim Nance
    9. Nick Buoniconti
    10. Sam Cunningham

    Limiting the list to ten players is tough to do.

    Because he's a kicker.

    And that automatically discredits him? :rolleyes:

    Screw all he did for the team, screw his records- he's just another kicker :rolleyes:

    All for Adam being on list. Apart from BB & TFB, one could argue Adam was the next in line as far as being responsible for bringing Sbs to Foxborough. For that same reason, I'd add Troy Brown.

    ...more preference to those who spent entire career w/ Pats. Morgan's one season as a Colt is the only exception to my All-Pats career list.

    I get where you're coming from, but I disagree pretty strongly on that one. Just off the top of my head, Brown, McGinest, Vrabel, Bruschi, Seymour, Light, Faulk, Law (2 out of 3) and Harrison (2 out of 3) all had much, much more to do with the SBs than Vinatieri did.

    I have no problem with the fact that Vinatieri left, but in terms of impact on the game, kickers just don't compare to guys who contribute on more than a handful of plays per game.

    Other than Vinatieri, I'm fine with the original list. I'd bump Vinatieri in favor of Troy Brown, and possibly Coates in favor of Law.

    Here's the link for those who haven't seen it: NFL Videos: Top 10 Patriots of all time

    My big question is, where is BB?? If not #1, at worst he should be #2 on this list. This shouldn't be a player only list, I saw Papa Bear Halas was the #1 Chicago Bear the other day. BB belongs on this list, no doubt about it.
