In Response to Re: Who would be the three people to narrate
^^^^ You are seriously off the grid. I'm not sure I understand which Patriots players you'd be choosing to narrate the series.Sheez, Why didn't you say that you were looking for ONLY Pat's Players tto narrate their upcoming 2011 Lombardi Season, In the first place? See, I thought BOTH the process of selection and actual player choice, far too obvious to even mention

Alright, FIRST off We're looking for a BIG-TIME personality & a pretty current one at that...So to make things easy, We'll ONLY target those Patriots who have had utterly EXCEPTIONAL tenured careers with New England: Pats players BOTH Drafted within the past 20 years AND Very Early, mostly 1st rd or early 2nd rd choices...Players who were hyped to BE the very best and WERE the very best in the entire sport. Also, we'd ideally want to target announcers/narrators who were former NE Patriot super-stars, ALL over the field of play... Guys who can share their innate & intimate superior knowledge of the little vastly important nuances of the game at each of their respective positions...let's say 3 Offensive NE Announcers & 3 purely Defensive NE Announcers.
This, at least to me, Is a piece a' cake...
Ya gotta start where it all lives and dies first, With the 'Big Uglies' in the trenches... Imho, this one's a close-y: At first, ya wanna go with future HOF'er Eugene Chung because he was selected with the 13th overall seletion in 1990, starting ALL but 1 game for 2 whole seasons before Parcell's just threw away his exceptional talent, buuut I'll go with 2nd rd stud OT, Adrian Klemm in 2000.
For the next 2, ya want a guy @ a skill position...Either TightEnd or Wide Receiver, Quarterback or Runningback. Wow, as most long-timers would wanna go with U of Florida''s stud wideout pro-bowler, Chad Jackson...I'm gonna keep the annoucer-thing old school, AND go with the 13th overall selection in the 1989 NFL Draft, Wide Receiver- Hart Lee Dykes. Now because this dude had 2 UN-real seasons before injuring his eye in a barroom brawl, then battling through adversity to come back the following 3rd year of his total career (which ended after he ruptured his knee in a preseason game)-TO Me at least, He was and IS worth the nod.
Boy, roundin' out this Offensive dream-team will be a nightmare... Although BOTH WR P.K. Sam and WR Bethel Johnson had great careers, Sam was a 4th rder and even though Johnson was a 2nd rder, I'd IDEALLY wanna target guys that play behind the LOS at either QB or RB in order to get their perspective genius(es) working over at those critical positiona areas, ya know? First, where TE Benjamin Watson (1st rder), didn't come through on the actual field of play, He DID make up for that on the actual important total time he WAS a NE Patriot...AND Where RB Robert Edwards (1st rder), didn't come through on the actual total TIME he was a Patriot, He DID himself make up for THIS with his 1 very productive season...Yeeet, we gotta go with 2! ENTIRE Offensive Draft CLASSES in the end here on this one (this'll be a reader's choice selection phone in): Together in 2006 & 2007, We're talkin' 19! Total Draft Selections here, On offense ALONE-we got RBs-Lawrence Maroney, Justice Hairston, WR-Chad Jackson, TEs-David Thomas, Garret Mills, and O-Lineman-Clint Oldenburg, Ryan O'Callaghan, Dan Stevenson Corey Hilliard AND Mike Elgin...How can ya even lose! And soooo, THIS is why I choose 4th rd QB, Kevin O'Connel.
Now, Defense is 10 X easier imho...
Ideally, ya want 1 D-Lineman, 1 LB and another guy in the secondary...
D-Lineman: In 1990 NE did the decade altering move in our favor of trading to Seattle, NE's 3rd overall pick in Rd1, For Seattle's 10th overall rd 1 selection... Seattle got some guy named Cortez Kennedy for their D-Line, where NE got DE Ray Agnew. Now, c'mon...Agnew accumulated almost 10, but a little less than 9 and a little less than 8 as well-TOTAL Sacks during his fantastic NE run, where pssh-Cortez Kennedy? WhoTH even KNOWS how few sacks that no-name guy had...? Hold on, I'll look.... Oh, 58 (with 668 tackles).
Moving along now...Please-Linebacker? Whereas I kept it "old school before with Hart Lee Dykes over Chad Jackson, I'll get some younger blood in here, with MORE recent LB-Andy Katzenmoyer getting the nod over LB Chris Singleton... And although Katz's 28th overall selection and 24 games where he actually stepped foot on the field, isn't as impressive as Singleton's 8th overall selection and 4 Total Career Sacks...Singleton did donate bone marrow to his brother to save his life, and that's cool enough to save him from this HOF Draft dream-team.
Secondary...Wow, so many choices. Yet, Ya gotta end it with the best of the best callin' plays for NE's Lombardi Team this year... Ty Law, you ask? Are YOU crazy...I'm goin with another 1st rder: CB Chris Canty....Sure he only had 1 career INT, but he played MORE than 1 season in his long time as a Patriots (A: 2).There ya have it...(was there any OTHER choices): Adrian Klemm, Hart Lee Dykes, & Kevin O'Connel teamed WITH: Ray Agnew, Andy Katzenmoyer & Chris Canty...wow-e-WOW (that's a spread)!
