I guess he gave up on getting a ring this year.:laughing:

He was a good player, however. A team guy on a me team.

I'll always remember him for playing CB and WR in the same year. And being successful at both.

yeah, that's what I'll always remember him for, well that and the punt returns in the afc championship.....

it was pretty impressive seeing him play CB, even if he was a patriot

I will always remember him being good at playing CB when the Pats were in need, plus playing WR and special teams.

He was an ultimate team player, and will always have my respect...even if he was a Patriot.

Randy Moss is next. He has lost his step.

He was a system player. Who are you kidding if you think this guy had any type of talent. His flaws were disguised by the coaching schemes and play calling. He was slow, he was dumb, he was never in the top of any type of any category, did I mentioned he sucked and played for Beli-profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilter? If you are a WR and you don't have any typ of concept of what you are going against, your main predator....a DB and you cannot play thier position just as well as you play yours you are worhtless IMO. How can you be a WR and not know the nuances of your opposition. Alot of the WR's in the league can play CB and can look a hell of alot better than what that scrub did when he got his chance. Buenos noches brotha!

I would say you will see moss another 3 or so years before he retires.

Heard he was applying as a videographer as his next job......figured with the Pats* on his resume he was a shoe in for the job :sofunny:

One of the few Patriot players I had respect for...though there is very little of it.

What's with all the hate? I'm embarressed as a Steelers fan that just because a guy played for the Patriots he doesn't get the respect he deserves from many of my 'peers'

He was a good player for a long time and doesn't deserve to be known as anything less.

My apologies. A great player who sees what the future holds, then bails like a rat from a sinking ship.


Better? :)

Honestly it stinks to see him retire. He should have tried looking for a team who needed a Veteran WR, because he def. had the skill it was just hard to show on a packed team like the pats.

A great guy on a team full of jerks.

He doesn't deserve anything more either. He was a good, but not great player. What kind of sendoff should he get on a non-Patriots board, exactly? It's not like an all-time great player is hanging them up. Sorry, but I couldn't care less about his retirement.

Troy Brown was a classy guy. He was a very versatile player. He could play a bunch of positions. I wish my Steelers or G-Men had him on their teams, but he was on my Patriots team so he is all good. :) He was a team guy on a team that was all about team, and I could care less what anyone else has to say about them. I wish him the best in his future plans. Good luck to Troy. I wish him the best.

I'll never forget that punt return against us in the 02' championship game...a real stomach punch considering we had to re-kick after a stupid penalty. I thought our team was clearly superior, and the only way they could win was with defense/special teams.....so of course they score two TD's on special teams.....gah that game still sticks in my craw.
