    Vinatieri probably has a high chance of making it. But he wasn't on the list.

    Rodney and Law may get a decent number votes but I doubt they will make it. Tedy will probably only get a handful of votes at best.


    I figured Brady and Vinatieri are locks so I left them off the list.

    Larry Izzo could've been added as well. Underrated special teamer.

    Izzo? Come on. Steve Tasker was great as a STs lifer, but they aren't HOFers.  Brady of course is in. I was more so talking about borderline guys and the Pats guys you could make a strong case for.

    I goofed on that one for sure. Are there any special teamers in the hall? I know Ray Guy isn't but he probably should be.

    I dont believe that, but one never knows. at the expense of getting the business from the board (Rusty), I saw Bruschi last night, and congratulated him. He and Heidi are big time runners, especially Heidi, and Tedy is very much smaller now than when he played. Is it the running? I guess no one will know, but imo he was a great player, great for the community, and he loved being a Patriot.

     





    Are you on a first name basis with Tedi's kids too?

    THE BEST



    Great ceremony for Gil and Bru. 

    I understand now why ESPN hired him. He spoke for almost 40 minutes at times spontaneously/genuinely and from the heart. 

    40 minutes and it seemed like 10. 

    As BB has said many times the perfect Patriot. He may not have been the best in terms of talent or  athleticism but he was a fierce competitor, great teammate and a winner.

    He will be my favorite Patriot of all time...I know this is kind of cheesy, but one of my favorite pictures is the one of him sitting on the field with his sons.

    Robert Kraft actually spoke about that in his introduction as something that stood out to him about Bruschi.

    Yup Teddy was a good one, helped us win a lot of close games...of course he will always be remebered for that great interception in the snow, but he did so much more. I wonder how much time this guy put in watching film and training, because he clearly got "it". He was just pretty solid doing everything....he could pass rush a little and time blitzes, he could cover pretty well, if he had a big defensive tackle in front of him he would play the run well. He was just solid and smart all around.

     



         When I think of Tedy, the play that stands out is when he jerked the ball away from Colts RB Dominic Rhodes in the Pats' 20-3 AFC Divisional Playoff win against the hated Horsefaces in 2004...and when he took "The Bus" on, head on, the following week in Pittsburgh, in the Pats' 41-27 win in Pittsburgh, in the 2004 AFC Title game.

     

         "Hey Pats fans, did it feel so, so good when we stuffed the Polian passing rules and Peyton Manning's vaunted offense up his backside in the 2004 playoffs?   Ooohhhhhhhh....YEAH!!!! 

         Full tilt, full time!!
