    i was 100% you was going to make a poll...

    it will be a battle between 3 in my opinion: Brady, Hannah and perhaps Haynes

    only had 10 slots. probably should've put an "other" category to capture gro, nelson, bru, harrison, law et al....

    this team should probably be better represented...but whatever.

    i picked TB based solely on his career to this point...not potential.

    it's time for a "ring of honor" at Gillette!

    I think you should only include PAST Pats. Including players who are still playing leaves too much uncertainty and just leaves too much room for expectation and speculation. Remove all current players and run it again.

    I agree. I would also recommend adding a few others to the mix - namely Steve Grogan and Stanley Morgan. Everyone defines "greatness" differently. Good topic, BTW.

    Hannah and Haynes both made the NFL 75th year anniversary team IIRC. However Brady has been the QB of 3 SB winners which is very rarified air. Depending on how the rest of his career unfolds, he could become the greatest QB in the history of the NFL.

    Brady. Not just the fact that it's current, he's WHY we've won Super Bowls, more than any other player. To me there isn't even a question.

    For a QB, anyway, I define greatness as consistently leading your team to the playoffs on a year-in/year-out basis AND leading your team to at least one championship.

    Brady, Elway, Montana, Aikman, Bradshaw, and Staubach are examples great QBs.

    Culpepper, McNair, Dilfer, Marino, and any QB with the last name of Manning (though some are "good" or "near-great") are examples of QBs that are not great.

    Hog Hannah ... The only player on that list that was a Pat from start to finish AND made the HoF AND redefined the position AND is considered the best ever at his position.

    I agree. People get blinded by what is, anf forget others. I am amzazed that Brady has so large a percentage of votes. Maybe they never saw Cappilletti play CB and WR, then kick the extra point after scoring.

    For me this is a no brainer. It's Hannah. The primary reason I chose Hannah is because his greatness is defined by how he dominated his played position and for how extended a period of time he did so.

    No other player on the list can boast of such long term domination to the degree that Hannah did. Quite frankly, it's not even close.
