  1. Tom says:

    I am pretty surprised that Randy Moss isn’t on there. Granted, guys like Troy and Fryar symbolized the Patriots way but if their doing that, then why isn’t Bruschi on the list?

  2. Rob says:

    Great List. Surprised to see some of the recent players on here like Light and Mankins, although I think they are great choices. I wince not seeing Tedy Bruschi’s name on here. While I agree that Nelson and Buoniconti were better and more high profile players, Bruschi is a Patriot, Buoniconti is a Dolphin – ‘nuf said. Put Bruschi on the list!

  3. Kelly Mac says:

    I agree, Buoniconti is a turn coat! If not Bruschi, then Don Blackmon who had many years left before his neck injury. Or, how ’bout Vincent “The Undertaker” Brown or Chris Slade? Fryar too. He was another turn coat. He was always good for a bonehead play in every game. I don’t see the affection fans and media have for the guy and his years in NE! I’d rather see Cedric Jones who was the Troy Brown of the 80’s! Jones always made big plays! Nice to see the late great Jim Nance, I watched him play when I was a kid. He was like Csonka with moves!
