You may have meant to search for bleeds--i.e. Drew Bledsoe retires

    When I searched to see if anyone had posted about Bledsoe retiring today, that's what I got: You may have meant to search for bleeds.

    Kinda appropriate, yes?

    Anyway, I feel older today. When a guy who was in college when I was in college and was the top target in my first fantasy drafts is retiring after fine careers...damn.

    I always thought Bledsoe was underrated. Had a gun (still does) and took a hellacious beating for some terrible teams and had some terrible luck over the last few years. I know Pats fans who wanted to wring his neck for seemingly always throwing the wrong pass at the wrong time and he was a terrible choice to QB a team with no line this year in Dallas...but he always struck me as a classy guy who deserved a little bit better and he deserves some credit for not hanging on.

    Thought this quote was pretty impressive: "I fulfilled a childhood dream the first time I stepped on an NFL field, and the league did not let me down one time." Well, that's not true. Belichick crapped all over him, even if it did result in three championships. It's too bad he'll be best known for nearly getting killed on the field and opening the door for Tom Brady to become an international superstar. Well, that and being called gay by a clown sportswriter.

    His father is among the biggest douches on the face of the Earth. Drew, however, seems like a good guy.

    The NFL just lost one of its best scrambling quarterbacks it's ever seen.

    Sounds like something Dan Dierdorf would say after seeing said QB run for a first down for the only time in his life. . . . .

    Oh, wait, he did say that. About Rob Johnson.
  5. Class act. Always was.
    But Jeebus, did anyone of his stature ever lose the starting job three times with three different teams and always to a guy you never heard of? Weird career.

    We can only hope Tony Romo has the career Tom Brady has had.
  7. I think the things we agree on is now up to 11.

    Drew Bledsoe - Class guy.

    May the road rise to meet you Drew and may the wind always be at your back.

    Drew Bledsoe was a class guy and a good, but not great QB. Better than Testaverde and Plunkett, but nowhere close to an elite quarterback.
  9. Hey, we agreed on how great your Lou Merloni thread was.
  10. Ok - make it 12 things

    I may just keep that thread alive

    You two need to get a room... And the great thing about it is that FB can now post pictures of the liaison afterward.
  12. I'm sorry. I thought there'd be info here about Bledsoe.
