I think it would interesting to get the opinions of many posters of the quality of the projected starters for the Pats. (We can do reserves later if the thread is a success) To make it somewhat easy, let's use the same, easy to quantify scale. Rankings are based upon comparison to all NFL starters at their position. For QB,RB,C,TE, it would be compared to the other 31 starters. For T,G,DE,CB,S it would be out of 64. Since 3 WRs are so common WRs should be compared to the 96 top 3 WRs. ILB/MLB and NT/DT would be compare to all players starting in either scheme. The rating system is percentile (if we all remember from our school days) Scale is 1 to 100. If you are the worst starter in the NFL you are a 1. If you are the best, a 100. A 50 means you are better than the same amount of starters you are worst than. 80 means you are better than 4 of 5 starters at your position and 1 of 5 are better than you. I'm going to start with a handful of offensive players, so the debate doesnt get all over the page. Brady should be easy. He is clearly 100. I think there is going to be no debate. Lets start with him, plus the WR/TEs. If the thread is successful ultimately we can expand it to all the starters. My ratings Brady 100 Welker 90 Ochocinco 75 Branch 65 Gronk 70 I'm including 3 WRs and 1 TE as starters. Its hard to include Hernandez because he is more a '3rd down TE' than a starter. Post your ratings and we can see what consensus we can arrive at.
