    Dee Ford - a solid, albeit unspectacular player - has added his name to the list of non-Patriot players that Patriots fans will always remember. 15 years from now, when someone mentions Dee Ford, we'll all know exactly who he was and why we're smiling.

    Good or bad, who else you got?

    Edit: I suppose I could start.

    Mark Sanchez
    David Tyree
    Freddy Mitchell

    Double edit: as a Pat's fan with what I consider above average knowledge, if I dont know why you mentioned the player, you owe me $5.

    Honorable mention for Jermaine Kearse, who almost joined the Tyree/Manningham section of the list.

    It's funny you mention Kearse. I'm playing a game of Madden and saw him, and his name was the genesis for this thread. You've earned a cookie.

    Kasay is a fantastic mention.

    Unreal that he launched a ball out of bounds in that spot. How often does that happen over the course of an NFL year? Twice?

    Marlon McCree. All he had to do was knock the pass down. Or drop it. Or not try to return it.

    I'd also like to mention the Colts kicker...was it Vanderjagt? You know, the guy that called himself Money...and choked.

    This is a great pull, mostly because his name and career are so nondescript that I came here to post "that DB from the Steelers".

    I'll go with Ricky Proehl, whose contributions to this category are among the most poetic.

    I'll never forget the Brady flea-flicker absolutely torching that dude for a score. They singled him out, he bit, and Brady got right in his face afterward. One of my favorite moments ever.

    Here's a good one: Frank Wycheck.

    14-14 game in the freezing cold against Tennessee. Patriots turn the ball over at midfield late in the third quarter. On first down, the Titans try a double pass, but Willie reads it all the way and ends up tackling Wycheck for a 10-yard loss in what goes down as a sack of a non-quarterback passer in the books. Tennessee ends up punting and the end game turns into a field position battle which the Patriots ending up winning after a Troy Brown fourth down conversion and a Vinatieri field goal that was good by a foot.

    A tangent: The Patriots have had a few situations where they knocked teams out of field goal range in big moments. It happened last week against the Chiefs. It obviously happened in the Atlanta Super Bowl as you note. It happened in the 2004 divisional game where McNair took an intentional grounding penalty in the final drive down 3 in field goal range. And it happened in the 2006/7 Chargers division game. I wonder if it happened any other times.

    Another tangent would be fourth down conversion attempts. When in the playoffs have the Patriots chosen to go on fourth where it wasn't desperation -- that is, where it really was a choice instead of them being down and having no choice but to try or lose on kneel downs. There were two last week -- one successful and one not. Troy Brown had the catch against the Titans to set up the winning field goal on fourth down. Down 8 with about 5-6 minutes left the Patriots went for it on fourth down against the Chargers and converted in a very unusual way after the strip of the pick. Against Atlanta down 11 they chose to take the three points instead of trying the very long conversion on fourth and goal. Any others?

    Edit: Actually they were down 19 when they kicked v. Atlanta.

    They converted a 4th down on the winning FG drive in OT vs. the Raiders in the Snow Bowl

    The Cooks play in the Super Bowl last year wasn't necessary.

    And wasn't the Brady drop also on 4th down?

    No strip sack and Brady almost surely drives the team down for a W to get #6.

    Technically, it was the 1st game of the season, and they were still in field goal range, but McGinest sacking Manning in 2004 to push it from a 35 yard FG to a 47 yard one was pretty big one.

    and two of my nominations for the original topic:
    Zach Piller
    Kordell Stewart
    (for statements made after the games more than their play during it)

    Here's a footnote: on the Troy Brown punt return TD vs. Pittsburgh in the first AFCCG, the Steelers first punt was actually a beauty that landed near the sidelines and bounce another 10-15 yards. But the Steelers were called for illegal formation on the play. The officials mistakenly moved the spot of the ball to the opposite hashmark. Troy Brown then returned the punt 55 yards to glory. "Touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, Troy Brown!"

    My favorite part of the play was that the Patriots vice players had knocked one of the Steelers gunners literally back into his own end zone by the time Troy scored the TD.

    Don't think it 100% fits the description but Lee Flowers for the hit on Brady that led to Bledsoe's last hurrah.

    If my memory is correct, I think Kenneycb is talking about a different hit that happened during the playoff run to Brady.
