    Almost had a triple post here - but I'm glad to see Willie getting some recognition

    some might remember that back when he was re-signed during the Carroll years some questioned whether he had the durability and desire to be a premier player

    Willie has quietly (as if a 270 lb. linebacker can be quiet!) proven any doubters wrong and has had an outstandingly consistent career - and more than the stats - he's always seem to be making the big play when his team needs him the most.

    A great honor for a true Patriot! Let's hope he finishes his career where it started!

    He may not be Bruce, or Reggie or LT
    But he's our Willie and he's O.K.by me

    Willie is one of the best Patriots Linebackers of all time. Good for him.

    I just watched the Pats video of Willie getting the award. Man, that guy is huge!

    It is going to be a really sad day when players like Teddy and Willie retire. The Pats will lose a bit of their soul I think...until the next generation comes along.

    slade messed with parcells

    he got into some personality thing with parcells. you know who won that.
    willie is supposedly an offseason workout warrior. it's likely he kept himself in shape whereas slade did not.
    it's really only in the last 5 years that willie has become a #4 overall draft pick-type player. he was injured most of his first 5 years, then ran into ppete carroll. since BB, ha's stayed on the field and become someone opposing offenses have to address in game plans. he looks huge on the field, much bigger than 6-5, 270.

    willie ray mcginest

    i will always remember his stop of edgerrin james, in indy, 4-yard line, on the last play of the game. on replay i can see each step willie takes but i still can't figure out how he got there so fast.
    ol' peyton's body language as he watches the edge get smothered iis priceless.
    but a question:

    how is it that a starter wins a 12/6th/10/ player award?
    i don't get that.
    my vote would have gone to russ hochstein.
