    Tedy was a key cog in three titles here. Will he ever be considered for Canton?

    Probably not by stats and they don't have a measurement for being a field general and making the players around you better. So, it seems unlikely. But, he'll forever be one of my favorite Patriots.

    No. Ken Norton Jr was a key cog and pro bowler for the Cowboys and 49ers and didn't get in. I think Rodney is the one who definitely deserves to get in and Willie is the talent who if he had stayed healthy earlier in his career would have gotten in.

    I don’t think he’s even close. He was a great player and a great leader on a great team but he was never one of the best at his position and doesn’t really have the stats.

    Highly doubtful. I think he only made the one Pro Bowl.

    Unfortunately no. One Pro Bowl and never led the league in any defensive category. He's a huge stone in the foundation of The Patriot Way, and was a big defensive tone setter on the first Super Bowl run, but those things alone don't get you a bust in Canton.

    To me Teddy and Troy Brown are the quintessential Patriots team hall of famers. Great players in their roles who would never lead the league in any category or make many Pro Bowls but we wouldn’t have the rings without them. Both of those guys were integral parts in instilling what Bill was looking for both on and off the field.

    Big Bru fan, but I think it's a long shot.

    The lack of pro bowl appearances may be a factor. Urlacher made it in with a career the same length with 11 more INTs and 300 more tackles. His teams were far less successful. The difference is he had 8 pro bowl years to Bru's one. He was the poster child for Bears defenses for years. Bru was part of a defense that never wanted a featured player, and quietly did his job. While that role is great in terms of team building, the Hall is looking at individual stats/achievement.

    Bruschi doesn't have any room in his man cave for a HOF jacket. Pats HOF, rings, banners, big moment photos etc etc... his wall is loaded. Where would he put it?
