    He doesn't need to be in the Hall for that. He is already honored in there for his touchdown record. Had they gone 19-0 though, I'd strongly consider it.

    Surefire Pats HoF'ers from that list;

    Belichick
    Brady
    Edelman
    Gronk
    Vinatieri
    Rodney
    Wilfork

    The rest I'm not so sure about. Probably a yes for McCourty especially given his leadership, tenure and consistency. After that I think Randy is in the mix.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I largely agreed with Andy's post until that last sentence, which is inaccurate and seemed like a classless dig.

    Just so I'm clear ... it's fortunate that Randy Moss didn't win any rings with the Patriots because the lack of rings (in Andy's mind) guarantees that Moss won't get into the NEPHOF, which is a good thing because Andy feels Moss doesn't deserve that honor.

    Essentially, I don't feel Moss deserves the honor of being enshrined in the NEPHOF, and therefore I'm happy he didn't win any rings because otherwise Moss might actually get in, which is at odds with what I believe is right.

    What a lousy line of thinking.

    It comes down to what the criteria are. Has Kraft/Belichick ever communicated what, exactly, goes into their evaluation process?

    If it's based upon talent and statistical output, Moss is a no-brainer. If it's based upon team achievement and longevity, he won't be enshrined.

    My gut feeling says "no" but I'd need to take more time to consider things before feeling confident with that decision.

    It isn't a Kraft/Belichick evaluation process

    Wtf?
    How do you get that out of my post?

    Fortunately meant we are fortunate to have won so many championships that we have rings as a criteria to be a patriot HOFer.

    Totally not what I am saying.

    I have nothing against moss ( other than his lame effort in his last season but that’s a minor blur on his record) but think that players instrumental in multiple championship are at the top of the list of top patriots worthy of hof induction.

    I believe he should. I believe that part of Brady legacy is tied to Randy. The Brady to Moss game legit help solidify Brady as the best, with that alone I think it is deserving enough.

    A good example of a one trick pony would be someone like ted ginn.

    Moss is regarded as the 2nd greatest wr ever.

    :rolleyes: Tom's not even retired yet, and all the rest of those should WAIT.

    Julius Adams
    Russ Francis
    Chuck Fairbanks
    Mosi Tatupu
    Darryl Stingley

    All should be in now. First. Russ is the only one who can, but ALL should have been able to experience the honor before they passed. All of them. That they didn't and still haven't is sheer, utter ignorance and stupidity.

    Morons in the media and this fan base are like Trekkers obsessed with the idea that a red shirt means automatic demise

    Mack Herron.
    Irving Fryar.
    Tony Collins.
    Jim Plunkett.

    All had their great times here, and none is going into the hall.

    Most of the committee agrees with you.

    I myself do not hold Adams, Francis, Fairbanks, Tatupu or Stingley responsible for Dreith, Tatum or Sullivan-each of whom committed extraordinarily egregious acts to steal rings from the Patriots.

    ' I don't think "rings" should be a criteria. Rings are a TEAM accomplishment. The Pats HOF is an INDIVIDUAL accomplishment.

    That being said, while Moss IS definitely a first ballot HOFer in Canton, his short stay here in NE and the way he left SHOULD disqualify him for the Pats HOF, regardless of how productive he was in those 3 years.
