Another offseason thread under ESPN, they asked a couple of their guys to pick what player they would choose to start a franchise with, Theisman choose #12, they have Jeffri Chadiha picks LaDainian Tomlinson RB, San Diego;John Clayton picks Peyton Manning, QB, Colts;Matt Mosley picks Carson Palmer, QB, Bengals; Len Pasquarelli picks Shawne Merriman, LB, San Diego http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2884722 Joe Theismann: Tom Brady, QB, Patriots The guy I'd start my franchise with is Tom Brady for a number of reasons. The first reason is because he's still fairly young at 29 years old so he can lead a team for seven or eight years. Two, he has no baggage in terms of off-field issues. The third reason is because he's one of the best leaders in football. He's a guy who leads his team on and off the field. He's one of the first people in the morning meetings, always gives his all in the offseason and makes sure to put in the practice time with both the veterans and the younger players. The final reason is probably the biggest. Brady is the type of guy you want to be the face of an organization. He's handsome, smart, talented and easily marketable.
