    Good list. I might go with Tony Romeo at tight end, but no other suggestions.

    By the way, I'm almost sure this entry read that Antwine was voted the all time Patriots MVP in 1971. If anyone has a 1971 media guide, please let me know.

    I saw them play...and the team during the 60s was a scrappy one...

    God i`m only 70 saw their first game in 1960.
    Still have season tickets .You should have seen Chuck Shonta play
    he makes our def backs all pro`s.
    To be honest it was great watching this team all these years .
    It was worth it. No more laughing stock.

    Shonta was on the all 60s team...but I believe that was because he got all the ink at the time because they threw to his side of the field more. He wasn't that good...but he got a lot of picks..and burned a lot. They didn't throw it to Felt's side..the reason being he was a better cornerback. Dick Felt was much better..although he did not get the publicity or the noteriety... The line though was quite solid..

    Mike Holvak, the Coach, was instructed to win, and save cigarete tin foils and accmulate string into a big ball. Scrimp, Scrimp, Scrimp. Billy Sullivan really didn't have the money to own and operate a football team.

    These scrappy guys fought hard,sometimes won and some times lost, but hey always played hard.:D

    People forget but thsi rteam was one game awayfrom a playoff withthe Kana City Chiefs whom they had alreeady beaten from going to thr First Superbowl. Drunk Namath came out and destryed their dreams as he ahd a spectacular game althoughhe was nauseaous and bleary eyed throughout the upset he staged against the Pats.

    I do remember that was on A Saturday...and the Pats were suppose to win...Nance was suppose to have a great game and...well the fell short Namath Boozer and Snell had big games. I watched and it was a large disappointment to a really solid season. They just got behind at the half and could never catch up.

    Bitter loss at cold Shea Stadium. Namath was freaking unconscious with 30-40 yard darts, and later he fesses up that he was so hung over he can hardly remember a thing about the game.

    I did. It was so easy to get tix back then. I went to games at Hahvid stadium (Houston Oilers) and Fenway Park on Friday nights.

    Older? Today's 60 is back then's 70 - 75. ;)

    I saw one game in that decade, at Fenway Park, seats facing the Green Monster. I could have sworn a punt, when it was at its apex, was going to kiss off the Monstah, but it was fair caught in bounds instead. Interesting place for football, to say the least. Parilli was the best known player by far in that decade.
