    Sad news. One of the very first HOF level players ever to don a Pats uniform.

    And one of the many players who should have been kept that the broke ass Sullivans wouldn't pay and shipped out for the proverbial bag of balls

    Did you watch the Patriot's HOF ceremony? Hannah said that the Gray trade showed
    him that the Patriots did not care about winning.

    Yeah, something that most of us who were there to watch the parade of greats shown the gate before that knew before Hog did. TBH I was surprised they didn't ship him out for a ham sandwich. :mad:

    "With 2 minutes left in the half, Buoniconti sent doug swift in on a blitz, then dropped to the middle... and waited."

    RIP Nick

    For those of us who were kids in the 60's, Nick was hands-down the best and most important player on the Pats.
    He was simply one of the best defensive players in either league and one of our only legit superstars(along with my namesake).
    He's always been a Patriot to me, not a Dolphin. Class guy on and off the field.
    Kraft ain't perfect, but we should all thank God he's our owner and not another Sullivan-type clown.

    Pound for pound, one of the best. Luke Kuechly with 30 lbs less

    Very sad news. I recall vividly the off-season exhibition basketball game he played in against our HS faculty. I remember he, Larry Eisenhauer, Larry Garron. Can't recall who-all else. Anyway, we had a vice principal who resembled the actor Robert Conrad. He cut down the lane and Buonoconti crushed him like it was a goalline stand. I can still conjure the sound it made.

    Before the dagger to the heart of Curtis Martin going to the JETE there was the agony of Nick B going to Miami.

    And between those two, the outrage of Mike Haynes going to the Raiders.

    In the Sullivan years, the better the player, the more likely they'd be shipped out of town. The one big exception: John Hannah, the first Patriot Hall of Famer to start and finish his career with the team.

    Trading Buoniconti, Haynes and Grey for a bag of donuts, was the hallmark for the Pats during the "dark days"... as much as it is easy to now be a Pats fan, back then is was equally as difficult as they consistently were at the bottom, there was never any Pats Gear in the annual Sears Wish book.. the first Pats T-shirt I got was a "Squish the Fish" T shirt. Meanwhile all the folks at work would show up in their Jets and Dolphins "puff Starter" coats.. all I had was my walkman.

    Now many fans hate us, back then we were just the laughing stock of the NFL....

    Our dad worked at the Sears distribution center in South Boston (where the South Bay shopping plaza is now located) and my brother & I knew that Christmas season had officially begun when he brought home the Wish Book...naturally we immediately turned it over to its backside, flipped through the Appliances section, paused for a while at the Sporting Goods section (because it was a nation-wide catalogue, it was not Boston-specific)...and then found that which was like magic to us: the Toys & Games section...Good times, good times...
