    Which of these former Patriots and now with the Broncos will you be wishing was still here with the Pats when you watch the game sunday and see them in action?


    P.S. Sorry but Chad Jackson was cut so he is not a consideration :)

    Our big weakness is that O-line.

    Graham. McDaniels, who's not on the poll list, would be second

    Gaffney, but Hochstein is a close second. His versatility on the o-line (and fullback) was soooo valuable.

    Hmmm - Is Josh McDaniels a consideration? I think he's the only one I might still want :)

    Daniel Graham. Had he been on the team, Feb 2008 might have gone differently. Very good blocker and a threat to catch a pass.

    Grahambo

    Gaffney is close because the bargain alternatives to him aren't working out. (I really thought he'd remain a Patriot for a while.)

    For the sake of piling on poor Maroney, I'd like to have Lamont Jordan.

    beyond that my top 3.

    Graham
    Gaffney
    Jordan

    if Jake Ingram screws up, Lonie Paxon's stock will soar.

    Easily Graham. I'm shocked that Gaffney is in the lead. He was good for us, but not like Graham.

    Graham was underappreciated by a lot of fans, so it doesn't surprise me.

    I really don't think a lot of the fans here ever played football before. So yeah, it's not suprising that a lot of them don't know the importance of a quality blocking tight end in the trenches.

    Dammit!

    Seriously though, you have to go with Grahambo. The man was a beast of a blocker and pretty good pass catcher as well.

    As most know, Graham was a 1st round pick. The perception was that he was injured frequently and a ok pass catcher who occasionally droped some easy catches.

    However if you forget his draft status, he was a beyond-superior pass & run blocker and was servicable in the passing game.

    IMO he was a tough loss.

    With Galloway being scratched for the Raven game the Pats really should have kept Gaffney.

    Graham, by far. I'd be okay with Gaffney and Hochstein, don't miss Jordan at all. He wouldn't be able to make our active roster.

    Graham is far and away the one that the Pats have missed the most, and there isn't another name on that list that is even within 100 miles of him.

    My guess is they have another SB if he were still here.

    I guess I'll be wishing we had Badass Graham back in the fold...don't be mistaken, the man was badass !!!

    I think it's about how you take the question, "wishing was still here." Graham is easily the best and most valuable player on the list, but #3 WR is a glaring hole on the team right now so adding Gaffney might make the bigger difference to the current roster.
