Conventional wisdom says it's Logan Mankins, given all his personal accolades. But the guy repeatedly came up small in the playoffs and was a big reason for himself being the longest-serving Patriot of the 21st century to never win a ring.

I would say Neal, I think. But I think Andrews has the potential to be the best down the line, underrated player in the league right now.

It's a tough question. Each of them - bar Mankins - has some brilliant highlights, but some bad lows too. The whole 2007 line is tainted in my memory, for example. But then Mason, Solder and Cannon were on the 2015 line that got Brady killed in Denver, and mostly played like *** in the 28-3 bowl, but Brady overcame it. Hard to pick one. I feel like Solder was better than Light at his best, but his worst games were worse than Light's. Both were 2nd tier tackles, capable of being shown up by elite pass-rushers. Cannon is brilliant now, patchy when he first started, but always fragile. I feel like Vollmer could have had a shot if he'd been less banged up too. Really hard decision.

It's easier to pick the two I have least fond memories of - Mankins and Bryan Stork.

Tough to say right now. Total body of work is probably Matt Light right now but I think when all is said and done it might be Thuney.
