In Response

I would have to agree with a comment recently left by ‘Johnny Sox’ about Teddy Bruschi.

It is true, Teddy Bruschi's family is so much more important than his football career. I am sure that if he did retire from the game, that he would receive the respect he deserves. Bruschi is just a great all around person as well as player. I could talk about him in every entry if I had the time.

I also feel that if Bruschi does retire from the game it will only be as a player. I can see him coming back in several years as a line backer coach. I can only hope it is with the mighty Patriots.

Another Bruschi Please

Following the Teddy Bruschi saga, one has to wonder if he really will play this season or not. When I talked about him before, I said it was uncertain about his future. Well, to top it off, Bruschi said he was uncertain as well if he could play in the 2005 season. The only bit of good news is that he said he is considering sitting out this one season in order to make a return the following season in 2006.

What about Bruschi?

There is definite uncertainty that surrounds middle linebacker Tedy Bruschi. I would consider Bruschi the engine that keeps the Patriot's defensive going. I don’t know too much about his condition, but my prayers go out to him and his family.

The problem still stands…

If Bruschi doesn’t make it back then who will take his place? Well, the Pats took a step in the right direction by adding Chad Brown, who is more than capable to produce big plays. It does help that outside Linebackers Mike Vrabel and Willie McGinest remain healthy, because they will be huge factors now.

The Underdog

It seems no matter what, no one considers him a starter. I watched every game last season and gay got better and better every game. With his lack of experience and being undrafted my god he performed very highly. Sure he’s a little small but he’s quick, smart and has great hands. I am curious to see what he does in this off-season to fine tune his skills.

Would any buy a Randell Gay jersey?

The Mankins of a Good Lineman

First-round pick Logan Mankins played his entire Fresno State career at left tackle, yet he was projected by NFL scouts as a guard -- and that's exactly where he lined up during the Pats' recent rookie mini-camp. That's also the position where Mankins has the best opportunity to earn playing time this year, as Joe Andruzzi departed to Cleveland in free agency. The Pats love Mankins' versatility. He has the athleticism to play out in space and take on speed rushers, but he also has the strength and aggressiveness needed to take on bigger defensive linemen on the interior of the line.
