    I find it difficult to decide if and when a person is chosen to be on the Patriots helmet or jersey this season in honor of their PATRIOTism who is more appropriate..Marquise Hill's number or B.K. initials for Bucko.

    If I had to decide I go with BK,He is the GM responsible for the best Patriots draft in history in 1973,He is why the Patriots were so dominating in that era although were denied championships by the power of the steelers and the inadequate referee calls in the championship game against the Raiders.

    Marquise Hill's death was a tragedy and he died as a hero so it would be nice to honor him too,but if you go by which guy meant more to the Patriots in overall success there is no comparison,Its Bucko.

    Darryl Stingley is also a possibility but you can't add all 3 so its probably not going to happen for any of them.

    Re: Who would you choose to honor on the teams uniform/helmet this year - Hill or Kil

    And what about Darryl Stingley??? is he NOT worthy of being honored?? Or maybe a bit of short sightedness. There WILL be a way Hill is honored; I would be incredibly surprised if that is not done as he WAS a member of teh teaml the first Patriot that dies while on the team. I doubt that Stingley will be honored as much and I think the same for Kilroy. But there MAY be a way that all are honored and THAt would be great!! Certainly better than choosing
    who to honor and who not.

    Yeah I did leave out Stingley which you can include as well but I don't think we have room to add all 3,probably 1 if Kraft wishes to do so.

    I do not think it would appropriate to honor Kilroy without also honoring Hill.

    The players will be wearing the number / initials and were alot closer to hill than Kilroy.

    An option would be for the players to honor Hill and the organization to honor Kilroy by naming a room, concession stand, or part of the stadium after him.

    The way I see it if you are talking about a helmet or uniform sort of thing...Hill only....Kilroy and Stingley BOTH will be honored in other ways. I just can not see Kilroy at all being honored above Hill.

    You are probably right,Especially since Kraft did not own the team back then,If it were Sullivan still owning the team or it was Pioli who died we might have seen it happen with a GM as a uni honor.

    Odds are it will be Hill's number or initials or nothing at all....God Bless all of them R.I.P.

    i think the Pats will honor Marquise Hill (his number on the helmet or something like MH ?)

    Stingley and Kilroy, imho, will be honored in a different way

    all of them ,again,; R.I.P
