I was thinking about something Jimmy Johnson said to BB about staying on top and keeping a team together. He said you have to figure out the players that you can't win without and keep them together. Right now we are seeing the last of the core Patriots from the 1996 superbowl run go. First Woody than Milloy,Bledsoe,Johnson,Law, and now Mcginest,and likely Brown and Adam too. That leaves Bruschi as the last of the Mohicans. My question is who of the newer Pats is worth locking up for the next five years and being the new core veterans to build a team around. My guess is 1. Brady 2. Seymour (He makes everyone around him a better player) 3. Branch (When he was hurt we didn't have a very good offense) 4. Light (Already signed might not be the best but gets it done) 5. Vrabel (Smart player and still young) 6. Warren,Wilfork,and Green (It's hard finding D linemen and it would be nice for this group to stay together and develop together. I would have put Wilson on the list but I see Safety as a position that is not worth locking up a lot of money in and he is replacable. The same logic goes for guard and center. Whats missing from the above group is more young linebackers.
