    Forgive me in advance if this thread has already been done.....I haven't seen one, and it seems like Mike V. deserves this...

    I am sure that most will remember his touchdown catches, etc, so let me start right off with an "off the beaten path choice"...but...one of my favorite Vrabel plays was in the 2001 Super bowl, on the play Ty Law intercepted and returned for a TD....the reason Kurt Warner threw that airball was Vrabel's pressure, and in fact, Vrabel smacked him pretty good right in the face mask...no flag was thrown, and the rest, as they say, is history.....

    Not to mention that great commercial, I forget who it was for, where Vrabel is playing touch football with the neighbor, and the neighbor's wife says, Mike wouldn't hurt him , would he? just as Vrabel trashes the guy... Much funnier than anything Peyton has ever done...

    grabbing Ike Reese's ballsack........

    IKE REESE, Eagles Linebacker

    "When we played the Patriots last year [Eagles running back] Brian Westbrook fumbled a punt, and we were all down there scrambling for it. [Patriots linebacker] Mike Vrabel had my testicles in his hand, and he was squeezing them. Where the football ends up depends on who has the strongest will or the strongest hands. Guys reach inside the face mask to gouge your eyes. But the biggest thing is the grabbing of the testicles. It is crazy."

    Playoff game in San Diego. 1st qtr 3rd and long, Vrable comes off the edge with a strip sack of Rivers. Immediatly looks back and see the ball recovered by the pats and does the first of the mock "lights out" dance right about mid field.

    I loved the FU streak he played with however, it was always backed up by somthing he did on the field. Thats how great players do it.

    Anyone remember this play? Rodney picks off pass in flat returning it and only one Steeler in the way. Roethlisberger. Vrabel absolutely flattens Lil Ben. Sealing the way for a td.
    2004 AFC Championship Game.

    I also love what Brady says he told him in huddle when checking in for goal-line offense against Carolina in Super Bowl 38. Don't forget about your boy. The two have always had
    a lot of good-natured banter about OSU/Michigan. Their alma-maters.

    I remember the play, I had forgotten it was Vrabel, but the best part was that when Vrabel went to block him and they were both going down in a heap, you can see that Vrable really drove him into the ground, and he got his knee right into Roeth's gut...great pick, patsfaninpa

    Even though it was already done, Vrabel was special enough to deserve two of these threads.

    That is why I apologized in advance..lol...I assumed it had been done already but I didnt' see it, I mostly only get in here during my lunch hour at work!!

    thanks for pointing it out to me. I went and looked at the other thread and many posters pointed to the same play I did...the pressure play on Warner in the Super Bowl...
