    Part 1:

    1. Brady
    2. McGinest
    3. Law
    4. Bruschi
    5. Harrison

    (I really wanted to add Corey Dillon in here)

    Part 2:

    1. Brady
    2. Gronk
    3. Edelman
    4. Hightower
    5. Butler (You could argue he should be #1 as it doesn't happen without him)

    (I really wanted to add Chandler Jones and Stephon Gilmore in here)

    I think you nailed

    Part II (2014-2018)
    1) Brady
    2) Edelman
    3) Gronk
    4) D McCourty
    5) Hightower

    Off the top of my head I can't think of any other obvious candidates.

    Part I (2001-2004)
    Brady and Brown are locks and the rest could be a mixture of Bruschi, Harrison, McGinnist, Seymour, Law, and Vinatieri. I might Harrison on the bottom of the list since he was only here for 2 out of the 4 years; still huge impact though no doubt.

    (Law, Bruschi, Vinatieri, Vrabel, Light)

    Edelman
    McCourty
    Gilmore

    I totally understand the Hightower pick, but I'm still taking Gilmore. I have Hightower at #6. A 3X Champ who made some of the biggest plays. But Gilmore, IMO, is the best overall defender the team has had for Part 2 and rivaled only by Seymour in the last 20 years.

    I was surprised that Vrabel was only mentioned once and then it was as a back-up.

    His name was my first impulse and I realized my choice might be more of a favorite player than a top player as OP suggested.

    Mikes' trash talking to BB, catching TD passes and making Steeler fans miserable just made him so likeable for me.

    I'm still working on the other 9.

    Off the top of my head....and assuming dynasty I runs from 2000-2004 only and dynasty II runs from 2014-2019.

    Law, Phifer, McGinest, Brady, Harrison

    Brady, Edelman, Gronkowski, Hightower, D. McCourty

    No Vince Wilfork? He spanned both dynasty’s and he’s a HOF caliber player.

    1)

    Brady

    Seymour
    Other than Brady he was the best player on the team from 2004-2014. And he’s the only other player who won ring’s a decade apart. Until he tore his Achilles he dominated all game every game. You never watched a game and said” man did Wilfork suck today....” It simply didn’t happen. You’re absolutely right about “ the trenches” but Wilfork was a force.

    Any list that doesn't have Vinatieri in it is invalid.

    Sorry, but that's the facts.

    Part 2 of the question involves years that Vinatieri wasn't on the team. He was playing for bitter rival, the Indy Colts.So it IS valid not to list him on list 2.
