    Which players will be playing for the Patriots for the last time in thier career after the Super Bowl? (NOT including the irrelevant Pro Bowl)

    You can add another player that was not listed ,I was going to add Jabar Gaffney but I think he is still around next year.

    I think the only one who is a dead lock to not be on the team next year is Troy Brown. Asante Samuel is close to a lock. And I think whichever one of Moss and Stallworth the Patriots decide to hang onto, the other one will be gone.

    Seau and Bruschi are clearly slowing down (Bruschi more so), but can still contribute. Harrison, Colvin, Vrabel, and Faulk are still playing well.

    The OP mentioned Gaffney. I think the Patriots will hold onto him. He's beens showing a steady upward trend over the past two years, and he could be our number 2 receiver next year.

    You think people pick on you because you're smarter than them and they just don't see it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Behave like an attention seeking moron and that is the way folks will treat you.

    So far I am the only one who voted for Rodney to end his career in Arizona - I think Rodney has grown weary of the injuries for the past several years (thus resorting to the HGH) and wants to win 1 more title before he hangs it up,If they win this year I think its his last.

    Not to mention it helps a guy leaving to know that his replacement which in this case is James Sanders is more than capable of filling the void and you also have the Rookie Merriweather who has been good when playing at that spot as well.

    Sorry but I'm done with AD. Initially, I give him the benefit of the doubt because he was learning a new position. However, I'm convinced hes a system type player after having done squat at his original position.

    seau, bruschi, brown, harrison, samuel, moss.

    if we win the super bowl, i believe these people will be gone.

    samuel is a lock as he wants the huge payday. no way bill and scott give him clements money.

    moss is likely as he only came here to win a bowl, same goes for seau.

    brown is likely as he didnt get crap for playing time, but its possible he stays on anyway bc he will always have a spot on the roster.

    bruschi and harrison i believe will retire if we win. they are getting old and injured and both have plenty of money, family, and a perfect season.

    if we do reach the pinnacle, i strongly believe someone significant will retire and will shock us all.

    I think he'll be back for one more full year as more of a mentor type player than a diffrence maker
    It is prettyu clear you know nothing about football and what happend on the field and what makes people good or bad.

    If not for the suspension Rodney would be going to Hawaii in two weeks. He's signed through 2009 and isn't even at rotational status yet. He'll be back.

    Tedy will also likely be back as a rotational player and mentor to whomever his eventual replacement is. Adalius has been groomed to make the calls, that is part of why this season has been a transition of sorts for him. Bill cared more about integrating him to that role than exploiting his talent.

    Troy and Junior are the locks. Asante is a near lock.

    Everyone else is debatable or dependant on what someone else does. Gaffney may be back, but you have to ask yourself why they didn't extend him early this season... If he wants more than his talent warrants given he's a FA, he'll be gone. Stallworth and Washington are both under contract for reasonable money if Stallworth is the #1 or remains the #1b to a reasonably signed Moss and Washington becomes the #4 and continues to excell on ST. Cap hits can be managed...

    Colvin, Vrabel, Faulk aren't going anywhere.

    After watching the "60 Minutes" program with Brady, you could clearly see that Brady is way over the top competive to ever consider calling it a career. I honestly believe he wants 5 rings before that day comes.

    Another point to ponder if what if BB calls it a career? I think its unlikely but if Bill comes back, a lot of players will want to come back to play for him.

    Troy's done, Seau's done, Bruschi's probably done. Asante's gone to free agency, and it's possible one of Stallworth or Moss goes. But I get the feeling both will be back.

    Do any of these morons who say Adalius should be gone ever see the career of Willie McGinest?

    In his first several years he was close to being a non factor on defense but hung around long enough and turned his career into Hall of fame type stuff shortly after the 2000 campaign - all while in New England so give AD another year or two before the dumb comments eh?

    Not every player can adapt so quickly to his new team,even veteran players in a different system can struggle for a year.

    I do feel that Chad Jackson could certainly be on the trade block or cut if all or most all receivers return next year.

    If Chad does return,Another season of nothing next year earns him a bust award

    I believe that Bruschi and Brown will hang 'em up for certain. I believe that Samuel will go for some pretty big money elsewhere. I believe that Stallworth will leave for the opp. to be the #1 (or strong #2) receiver elsewhere. I would be shocked if Moss left, Brady retired, or BB retired. Unbelievably, it looks like we'll be able to retain SP again.... AND it looks like McDaniels is going to stay strong as our OP. I HOPE that we're able to restructure Colvin's deal.

    On the opp front...I believe that we'll make a push to bring in Dansby (and hope that we get him)... and I believe that Ellis will end up here from the Cowboys.

    Not sure what other tricks that BB has up his sleeve... BUT, it sure will be fun watching him go about his job.

    On the BB front, I think that we have to start being concerned at the 5 ring mark.... but Lombardi will still have more.... I'm not even sure that he's that concerned with what other people think about him... but I'm hoping that his love for the history of the game will keep him coming back for more... at least until Brady calls it quits and starts prepping his run into politics.

    On the AD front....are you all serious? The man is a beast... our def. isn't about stats, it's about assignment and containment... we are lucky to have him.

    Also, on the Hobbs front... IMHO, as a #2 CB... he's solid. Yes, he's short (a problem against tall receivers)... but he does a good job in coverage... the short question for you all is "who would you rather have there?"... now, as a #1 CB, that might be tougher... but still.... you can only field who you can... I just believe it's unfortunate for Hobbs that he's spotlighted as being weak just because the rest of the team is so strong.

    Anyway... just my two cents.

    Why wait till AFTER the Super Bowl?

    Why not simply bench Adalius and Ellis in the SB and replace them with Randall Gay and Eric Alexander? :rolleyes: :bricks:

    If the Pats win, I can definitely see Seau going. If you lose, perhaps he might come back.

    But have many LBs ever played till they were 40?

    Not all of my choices were there in the poll.

    I vote Troy Brown (no longer good enough to make the active roster unless we get more injuries); Eugene Wilson (Pats don't want him anymore); and Stallworth (I like him but he's too expensive if we keep him another year).

    I don't see why Seau should retire. Age alone isn't a good enough reason.

    I don't think Bruschi will leave if he thinks he can get another ring next year, and if he can make the team. Considering he started this year, he's good enough to at least be a backup next year.
