    Being compared to Troy Brown.

    It's almost becoming a cliche. Faulk, Welker, and Vrabel are all said to be Brown-like.

    That said, the biggest glory goes to Troy, for setting the standard all the others are compared to. And deservedly so. He was the Patriots' MVP in their most important post-season ever. He had the most important and remarkable single-game set of special teams accomplishments in Patriot history, Adam Vinateri NOT excepted. He was one of the most consistently clutch Patriots ever. (Who except Brady is ahead of him?) He was a terrific mentor to his teammates, WRs and DBs alike. He moved to the other side of the ball and made it work. He made a hugely important defensive play while on offense (the game-saving strip vs. SD). And he was the poster boy for rags-to-riches, perhaps even ahead of Brady (Tom, after all, was never actually cut by the team.)

    Oh yes -- he actually showed loyalty at the end of his career, shortening it rather than going to another team. (Bruschi rivals or exceeds him for being a committed Patriot -- but who else in the modern era?)

    I get the feeling there will be some perpetual Patriots Troy Brown award.

    A thorough award no doubt.
