    2004 team didn’t have him for both afc playoff games and he was hobbled in the SB.
    Agree he was a major piece of those 3 rings but I think at least 2004 wins without him. 2003 was a dominating defense with him, hard to say if they had enough without him.
    2001 would have struggled really badly without him.

    Hannah is the best player the patriots have drafted in round 1.
    It’s hard to distinguish between that and “player that meant the most toward wonknjnv championships” at this point in time.

    Let's not forget that the 1978 Patriots are the greatest rushing team of the Super Bowl era, and the greatest rushing team of the last 70 years.

    This is quite an accomplishment for Hannah and friends. After all, who were the running backs? Sam Cunningham, Horace Ivory, Andy Johnson.

    Almost all of the other teams behind them had superstars at RB like OJ Simpson or Csonka. The closest team of the 21st century is the 2006 Falcons with Warrick Dunn, Michael Vick and Jerious Norwood.

    That combination of Hightower and Jones was a serious case study of when to trade up.

    Frank Gifford said during a Monday night Patriots game, this team will run all over you. And they could.

    They got Wilfork at #21. He deserves to end up in Canton.
