[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Best 10 Draft Choices in Patriots' History : To me, this says: "I know nothing whatsoever, about NE Patriots Football OR Players, prior to the 2001 Superbowl Season...Accidentally watched 'em maybe 5 minutes every other year if they were on while I was walking by the tv, never followed 'em...Knew the names of Drew Bledsoe and mayyyybe John Hanna, prior to '01...etc.".

It never ceases to amaze me how some, when unable to debate, resort to insults. Puzzling, but I see it all the time.
May I ask if I am entitled to my opinion here?
Why is it some here scream for censors to ban posters who they say insult people yet spew insults themselves? I just don’t get it.
First of I have been going to and following football, especially the Pats, all my life. Its likely Sir when our gang watched SB III with family members from NY (married in, we were stuck with em’) you weren’t even born.
Take this to the bank.
Ty was a very good football player.
Ty was also a “soft” finesse DB and was NEVER a physical player for criss sakes.
Drew was a very good football player.
Drew was also not fully committed to football. Drew should have so much more with his God given talent. He wanted more of an off season life. And I’m fine with that, it’s his life.
Neither makes my list.
FYI Top 2 busts
Irving Fryer and Kenneth Sims, both number 1s and both huge busts. We traded up to 1 to get Fryer.
How many here remember the day the Foxboro Police called the Pats during a game. The call was sent down to the coach (Berry I believe) The Police said to Berry we have a man here who hit a tree with his car but says he is a Patriot? Berry say’s can’t be we are in the middle of a game. The Police say “he say’s his name is Irving Fryer” Berry say’s “Oh wait a minute” The team looks around and sure enough Irving is gone and it was indeed him.
Worst trade back on draft day.
Bear with me. I think 1985. We swap 1st round picks with San Fran so they can move up to 16th or so. We also get San Frans 3rd rd as well.
We draft Trevor Matich C from BYU and Ben Thomas DL with the 3rd.....
San Fran drafts at 16....Jerry Rice.
