    The fans chose wisely. Troy is the epitome of what a Patriot should be; selfless, versatile and all around great guy. Congrats to Troy!

    What a shock! Seriously, great choice, obviously. Couldn't represent the team any better.


    Say bye to Antwine, Clayborn and Julius Adams, i guess.

    They may have to revisit the selection process that changed dramatically when fan voting was incorporated in 2007 (prior to that they added multiple new members or none per year). Create a veterans committee that makes an additional selection even every other year from among prior years finalists in the nomination process fans didn't vote in as the dynasty team starts to backlog candidates. I would say goodbye to Tuna, though, although the mediots that largely form the nominating committee may find it harder to...

    They have one, Jon Morris was the first. Unfortunately they made it every five years...

    It is a crime that H Antwine isn't in. Too many never had the chance to see him play.

    No Jersey Selected

    5 years is way too long an interval. 3 years max is much more reasonable, preferably 2.

    'Twine and Jim Lee Hunt...two of the best tackles in the league in their day...House was 6 feet tall but packed a solid 270 and had extremely quick feet...led the team in sacks, (even though those stats weren't kept at the time) for 3 or 4 years if I'm remembering right. Should definitely be a Patriots HOF'er IMO...

    I tried to google info on the process yesterday because I though that was the case but found no mention of a veterans committee. I agree with the captain :eek: that every other year they should revisit the veteran candidates and select one. And if they don't want that to eventually delute the process, make the selection based on % of votes so that eventually they don't necessarily add a veteran every other year.

    Disable Jersey

    As a geezer I remember Antwine & Hunt and earlier players like Larry Eisenhauer and Bob Dee. As an older kid I loved us having a team and not having the NY Giants stuffed down our TV throats. Who knew that it would come full circle 50 yrs later with more Jint stuffing? Bummah. :mad:

    He was coach for 2 years and essentially already left before the biggest game in franchise history was even played while it was still his watch.

    Tuna can go to Canton and celebrate for 40 years - well deserved for his record in its entirety. Anyone who even gives him consideration in foxboro should be banished from the NE area.

    I am disgusted with myself.

    On a thread congratulating one of the all time best Patriots and my personal 2nd favorite (after Grogan); I uttered not a single word about this fantastic individual; and instead posted about a rotgut coach.

    Downtown Troy Brown. You DA MAN!!!!!! Lived, breathed and played Patriots football as it should be. Thanks for the memories.

    While I want to see H Antwine in the Pats HOF, I am very glad for Troy and voted for him.

    Still a vts committee needs to meet every other year to address some of the neglected old timers.

    Some great reflections from Troy via Curran after his conference call. Talked about the struggle to just remain on the roster for the first seven years of his career.

    Brown reflects on inspired climb to Pats HOF

    There was a heartwarming quality to those early (what turned out to be a) dynasty teams. Lots of under hyped overachievers who were just determined, heart and soul, all in football players.

    I remember resigned as a kid in the knowledge that, if you wanted to watch football on Sunday on WHDH-TV (Channel 5) in Boston, you were going to watch the Jints. The good news was that, as the 60s (& 70s) continued, so did the losing.
