Maybe we should have him on the overrated list, but still Blitz is right, family and health first.

Bruschi is the quintessential Patriot. He loves the game. He's smart. He plays with his gut. He's a coach on the field. He's tough. He has average talent for a pro. He brings home the bacon. Trust me, every team should be so lucky as to have a Teddy Bruschi on its roster.

Well he play next year? That's up to him. He has a life outside of football. He has built up a lot of good-will here in Boston, so he could slide into the business community with ease. If it's not smart for him to play again, he won't.

I agree, I think as a linebacker he is overrated a bit. But he does make up for it with his other attributes. I think alot of it is Bills system. And he does get the most out of his players.
As far as other teams being lucky to have him? Maybe most teams, but not here in Pittsburgh. We have some of the best linebackers ever. Year after year. And not to take anything away from Teddy, but he wouldn`t start here. He is not fast enough to be a Steeler linebacker, Vrabel couldn`t start here when he was here. Although I might put Vrabel on the underrated list, I like his game.
As a family man I would just hope Teddy made the right choice, I`m sure he does have plenty of options out of football. And I`m glad they caught it before it was to late. Tou probably know more than we do about it, but I still can`t believe they never new before that he had a hole in his heart. These are professional athletes, they get physicals all the time.

Speed isn't what stopped #36 dead in his tracks at 4th and one. And that was the game right there. So you can keep the Bruschies out of the line up, and we'll keep putting them in there.

Yes the bus got stopped on 4th and 1..which rarely happens, but it did.. anywho, the main point being that Steeler linebackers who arent fast dont last in Pittsburgh...ex. earl holmes, who was as big a hitter as they come,but couldnt cover with a damn, and that ulitmately lead to him leaving the team; hich was clevestinks main piont. Bruschi is as solid as they come at LB, no doubt... but his lack of speed would hinder him in a 3-4 zone blitz style that we run here in Blitzburgh.

Blitz, I understand. You use your system, we'll use ours. You keep pressuring us, we'll keep pressuring you.

I'm always worried about those players that will ease into the work place. Better make sure I get a cover sheet for my report...

Teddy stops Bettis on one play, a huge play no doubt.
But 9 out of 10 times the Bus will run his ass over.

I think Bruschi should retire. I will admit, I wasn't too fond of him when I first saw him. But after awhile I realized that he loves the game and gives it 200% every time he plays. He has two kids and one coming. He has paid his due in football, and if he goes out now, he will go out very well respected. He's a great player, but it's time to walk away, until you can't anymore. Please say a prayer for him, I know he's part of the Patriots, but he has 3 kids, just wish him the best through his surgery. Thanks guys! God Bless!
