    So, you're wandering along in the woods and you discover the fountain of youth! It will give long lasting life and restore someone to their most youthful figure. For some strange reason, you can only apply its affects 5 times total, and it has to be used on someone who is presently playing for the Patriots, or who has played for them at any point in the past.

    Which 5 Patriots do you let use it, guaranteeing their presence on the Patriots Roster for all of eternity.

    My choices:

    1) Tom Brady
    2) Andre Tippett
    3) Ty Law
    4) John Hannah
    5) Richard Seymour/Vince Wilfork (Undecided)

    I will answer the question later, but obviously this presumes that it will also provide the Patriots with the money to keep them signed. ;)

    Interesting. Outside of the 5 of the OP I'd add Randy Moss.

    Heh. First four I agree with completely - they were the first four guys that popped into my mind. But instead of Stanley Morgan I think I'd go with Mike Haynes.

    I'd take my chances with a D that featured Tippett, Law, and Haynes, all forever in their prime. And then add an offense with Brady and Moss in their primes.

    Ahh Belichick, good one i didnt even think about the coaches.. but they would still apply in this hypothetical.. I like it..

    I guess I woudl drop Seymour/Wilfork from the 5th spot and give that to Belichick

    "Among the perennially dominant Patriots are players who have played for decades with no apparent decline, generating rumors of performance enhancing drugs. Now that the smoking gun has been found in the form of a magical potion from the Black Forest, the five have been banned from the league... and we have 22 asterisk super bowls..."

    I prefer this game if we limit it to players currently on the roster. And remember, the FOY is about cellular reconstruction, so it resolves all injuries as well as aging. You pull a hammy, you take a sip, and presto, the hammy reverts to a younger age.

    For me:

    • Wilfork
    • Mankins
    • Brady
    • Dowlling
    • Talib

    I'm sticking to my guns with Morgan. He could of done anything out of the wr position with Brady as his QB. Slot,intermmediate,sideline deep and over the middle. Blazing speed, great hands, clutch. You couldn't ask for anything more out of a Patriot.

    Tippett


    Triggerman
    Receiver
    Blocker
    Pass defender

    Just for the record, the next three would be:

    6.) Seymour
    7.) Law
    8.) Wilfork

    Tom Brady
    Randy Moss
    Richard Seymour
    Mike Haynes
    Vince Wilfork/Rodney Harrison (undecided)

    One of the most dynamic passing duo's in NFL history, a pair of the teams best and most disruptive linemen, and probably the best corner to ever play here.

    These 5 had the best season the NFL has ever seen, so why not give it another run!!!!

    3.) Randy Moss
    4.) Richard Seymour
    5.) Rodney Harrison

    As much as I like Wilfork I think Harrison and Seymour were more impactful and irreplaceable players.

    Twist on the answer:
    I'd use it on Brady 5 times, starting in 2 years and then repeating every 15 years.

    Assuming it had to be used all at once:
    1. Brady
    2. Law
    3. Harrison
    4. Moss
    5. Seymour

    Yea I love me some Wilfork but Seymour in his prime was insanely disruptive and played at a Hall of Fame level. How about a 4-3 with Tippett at LDE, with Wilfork and Seymour at the DT spots? wowzers..

    So this basically takes the best year of any Patriots player ever and keeps them perpetually on the team at that level?


    1. Brady
    2. Moss
    3. Tippett
    4. Seymour
    5. Hannah

    Hannah is obviously one of the best ever but at the end of the day he is still a guard so he is lower down the list. Strongly considered Law replacing him.

    Moss in 2007 was at a level no one in Patriots history has achieved, except for of course Brady.

    (1) Tom Brady
    (2) Rob Gronkowski
    (3) Randy Moss

    An offense of Brady, Moss, and Gronkowski in their prime and it would be unfair to the rest of the leg to use the other 2 :rocker:

    3) rob gronkowski
    4) Vince Wilfork
    5) Ty Law

    Wish I could add a 6th for Harrison. Then we would be set.

    Two excellent choices. I would pick Wilfork over Ted only because Vince could shift outside as needed. If I know I'm going 3-4 all the time, and I'm never going to need to shift the nose, I'm taking Washington over Wilfork. I've never seen a player as strong at the point of attack as Washington in his early 30's.

    1. Tom Brady

    3. Randy Moss
    4. Rodney Harrison
    5. Ben Coates

    Rodney is the missing piece for this defense - someone who sets a tone and always plays with fire.

    Belichick, Moss and Brady are obvious choices.

    Coates might seem like a strange choice but could you even imagine Coates, Gronkowski, Hernandez, Moss and Ridley on the field at the same time?

    Law - secondary fixed
    Rodney - cause he will make a better Rodney than Wilson will
    Tippett - instant pass rush
    Corey Dillon - because his 04 season remains the most beautiful thing I have seen on a football field. Dominant physical running.
    Randy - deep threat to go with the TEs

    Boom done and done.

    Resisted the urge to use it on Tom because he is still in his prime. Ignored TE for obvious reasons and ignored the OL because we got a lot of talent there and Scar.Tip has to pitch in on the DL and with the LBs.

    Assuming that I'd waste it on football players:

    1) Tom Brady
    2) Troy Brown
    3) Tedy Bruschi
    4) Rodney Harrison
    5)... wait for it...Bill Belichick

    Although I thought about some players from before this era, weights of linemen and stuff changed too much. I'm afraid someone like Hanna might be undersized and average today. Same with Tippet. -I'm not saying they would be - but with only 5 shots I'd hate to waste any.

    Belichick because I read somewhere that no coach older than 55 ever won a Super Bowl. I wonder if the long hours is too much for a senior citizen.

    Assuming they DIDNT have to be used all at once or at least the process could be drawn out.. ;)

    1st - Traded to Robert Kraft for ownership of the Patriots
    2nd - Traded to Belichick in exchange for my being made a Patriot and him agreeing upfront to a bit more owner oversight
    3rd - Used on myself!
    4th - Tom Brady
    5th - Tedy Bruschi

    Might be questionable whether Belichick trades eternal youth for putting up with a meddling owner. Example: Of course, sign DA, but Bill, you WILL see to it Welker is resigned. Period.

    And my apologies to Troy Brown, Vince Wilfork and Randy Moss for not being smart enough to figure out a way to include them on my list. :(
