After reading some recent posts on the messageboard about having head coach Bill Belichick calling former Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe out of retirement to take over for Matt Cassel, I decided to take a moment to see what I could find on YouTube.com on Bledsoe.  I'm a Bledsoe appreciator who enjoyed the great run the team had back to relevency under Drew, and obviously I'm also obviously a Tom Brady fan.  I know those of us who can appreciate the two equally are a rare breed, but for those Bledsoe fans out there here's a great video on the guy who helped bring this franchise back from the brink of oblivion until Brady came along and took it to the next level.
As for Bledsoe I'm sure he's sitting back and enjoying life in the woods in Montana.  At his age and this stage in his life I'd rather see him retired than quarterbacking the Patriots.  But if Bledsoe were 22 again I'd love to see him (and Ben Coates for that matter) back on the field filling in for Brady while he recovered.
But I do live in the real world.  However that doesn't stop me from appreciating the past.  Here's a great video for anyone interested:
