Tedy Bruschi is the face of the New England defense, and he has been for some time. He always steps up to make the big play (usually an interception) when it matters. Here's hoping he makes a quick, full recovery.
"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning
Not to minimize your comment, Lexus, but I think that's why I like him so much. He wasn't a "name" for so long. He wasn't a name, then part of a team. For a lot of people, they knew the team, then the name. I follow the team, so this hits harder than it would for most. But I like to think there are lots of other people pulling for him because he was just a guy, and sometimes he was just a guy who did a helluva lot, even though he didn't get mic'd for ESPN Sunday night or anything else. He was just good. Hell, there are a lot of people who deserve that distinction and never get it, unless they get hurt. Tedy got both. I wish he hadn't gotten the latter.
Pull through, Tedy. Best wishes to you, even from a message board.
Sorry to hear about this one, even though I hate the Pats. He's a good player and you never know who can recover from a Stroke and who can't. Some people bounce back just fine after time has passed. Some never do. Here's hoping he does...and is then traded to a team I like. :)

Well, the Rams could use ANY type of run-stopper. :P
For me, it wasn't Summerall and Madden...it was Summerall and Tom Brookshire. I mean, he was great with Madden, too, but the pairing with Brookshire is where football was defined for me. Other than that, I completely agree.
