    We have the potential possibility that 5 of our greatest players ever on the Patriots squad will retire in the same year.,next year.. Its not likely but a possibility,especially if they win the Super Bowl again this year...Who would you miss most of all? - ONE PICK! NO MORE!

    Easily Troy Brown. Best Patriots receiver i've ever watched and a true team player and a Patriot.

    I'll miss Troy very much.

    I went with Harrison but its a hard choice between him and Brown for me. Troy is a true Patriot but I've always been more of a fan of defensive players.

    Went with Troy, but looking at the list, it is a tough call. Could have taken any of the listed

    Tedy Bruschi, such a great story and so many memories watching him I'd hate to think of anyone ever wearing the Patriots 54 again.

    One of my biggest wishes is to see another Super Bowl victory so there will be that clip of him saying "That's four!"

    Mike Vrabel still has few good years left. He's not as old as Bruschi.

    A) I wouldn't call Vrabel or Izzo some of the "greatest Patriots ever."

    B) I doubt Vrabel retires. I'd give him at least 2 or 3 more years. Izzo too.

    I'd miss Vrabel. I'm expecting all the others to retire in the next two years in any case. I am hoping fro a few more good years from Vrabel.

    Maybe saying Vrabel was great is a big word but one of the most versatile and productive LB players in our history is not going overboard...Do we win those super bowls and get to the conference championship without a guy like Vrabel?,Maybe not,certainly a big part of not only being of significant LB help the past several years but catching those balls in the end zone were great too,rare good catching hands for a big guy LB

    The likelihood of Mike Vrabel retiring after this season is about equal to the likelihood of Richard Seymour or Asante Samuel doing so.

    None of them is quitting that soon barring a career-ending injury.

    The chance of Harrison retiring isn't much higher.
