Player poll: Halloween favorites

Halloween is here and lots of people (and pets!) will be putting on their best Patriots-inspired costumes tomorrow, ranging from casual Coach Belichick to dressed-up Tom and Gisele. But what about the players? In the spirit of the holiday, we polled them about their favorite costumes, candies and movies for October 31.

Overall winners


Candy: Reese's
This all-American classic got lots of votes, with most players going for Reese's Cups and a couple trailblazers opting for bite-size Pieces.

Costume: Power Rangers
It should come as no surprise that as kids, many of the guys loved dressing up as their favorite action heroes. The Power Rangers were the most popular, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in second. But we have to give Gronk a shout out for always standing out from the pack; he admitted that one year he dressed up as a garbage man, smelly clothes included.

Scary movie: "Child's Play"
Horror flicks aren't very popular in the Patriots locker room, but among those who do like a good scary movie, the original Chucky film is tops.
