    If you could reach back and add Patriot from the past to the roster, who would it be? Of course, let's assume that player would play with all the skill he had at his height. And choose a player who would help us beat the Colts.

    Since someone already said Ty, I'll go with Ted Johnson

    Unless we're going further back, then I'll take Mosi Tatupu for the sake of obscurity

    Bring back Willie...John Hannah...Irving Fryar and Stanley Morgan...Grogan on the sidelines...and Darryl Stingley...so that he could bask in the moment...

    Ty Law, only because he could pick off Manning 3 times again.

    I agree that Ty Law is most tempting but Stanley Morgan is awfully good choice, too.

    Little Mack Herron, lol. He's actually the reason I became a Pats fan. I'd love to see vintage 2003 Ty Law back, for Sunday night. It made me sad that we were one of his final choices, and he chose the Chiefs.

    Considering Ted Johnson barely played when the Pats played the Colts in January 2005...

    Hey, Willy55. Do you mean you wouldn't want McGinest back?

    If we're reaching back here than definitely Hannah, Haynes, Nelson, Law, and Willy.

    what a great thread.....
    I think the easy answer is Ty for all of the times he has been on the receiving end of Paytons passes.
    I have always wished that Ben Coates could suit up for Brady (also have wished for a long time that either grahm or watson would develop into the player Big Ben was)

    I'd say John Hannah. He could plow the way for Maroney.

    I think I'd rather have Mike Haynes and Andre Tippett. Of course Law and Willie did give him fits.

    John Hannah.

    With Dillon and Maroney, I estimate time of possession at 59 minutes.

    Not sure about Canty....I might prefer Starks.


    On the positive side, Sam "Bam" Cunningham....sit Moroney down and rotate Sam with Corey....they would cry mama and quit in the 3rd quarter.

    From the dynasty, I would have to say Ty Law. Ty Law owns Peyton Manning, still does, see his performance 2 weeks ago.

    All time, tough choice. Hannah was such a road grater. Irving Fryar in this offense would do so much damage on the field and would open up Caldwell, Gaffney and the TE's a lot more with the D focused on him. Willie Mac would be another great choice, but I would have to say Andre Tippett. A front 7 with Warren-Wilfork-Seymour with Colvin-Bruschi-Tippett-Vrabel would be virtually untouchable. I doubt Manning would have time to even drop back with how fast this defense could get to him.

    Man, who the hell am I kidding, Marion Butts, all day, every day.

    Well, seeings how rodney harrison is out, I'll take Laywer Milloy for the next game. The Pats need a big hitter. Or Ty Law

    Andre Tippet or Ben Coats, Tippet for the denfensive help or the real Big Ben, just put the ball anywhere near him and watch him carry 4 defenders on his back for the 1st down

    Against Manning, it would have to be Mike Haynes, best CB this franchise has ever seen. Ty Law can't hold his jock.

    Hog Hannah - maybe the best run-blocker that ever was. Colts D would be hamburger..

    ...and Peyton would hastily sling 3-4 INT's

    thanks-fun post

    TBC is a nice pass rusher but they're going to run at him all day long. So I'll take an extra LB -- probably Tippett, but Nelson and Willie would do the trick. Although...hey, wait!

    I just went back and read the rules again. I'll take a 2003 vintage Tedy Bruschi. I'll pair him inside with the 2007 version, I think they'd play off each other well. And we know he functions well in Tedy Bruchi's old role. That lets me move Vrabel back outside where he belongs. All set!

    No Tony Eason nostalgia? Damien Woody? Say it ain't so! :cool:

    I could probably enjoy seeing vintage Tippett and Lippette (sp?) back in practice to see if one would beat the competition (from current greats, plus Ted J, Willie Mac, etc.)

    Why not throw Stanley Morgan, Irving Fryar, and Terry Glenn together? Let's add Deion Branch, for Schlitz and giggles.

    And if all else fails, deliver unto my Patriots the one...

    the only...

    the one time savior to a despondent Patriots Nation...

    Hart Lee Dykes!

    No love for Bledsoe? I'd be nice to have him on the bench once again. Speaking of, Bledsoe's most likely not back in Dallas and Vinny, to say the least, is getting a bit long in the tooth, what do you think. Is one of the greatest back up QB's in Patriots history on his way back?
