    Unsurprising.
    I guess it's time.

    I look forward to seeing him on TV.
    Hopefully this safety group can carry on his attitude and focus.

    We will sure miss Harrison and his hard hit plays. What i will miss the most is his game ending INT's. Just a fantastic player. I was hoping at least he mentors Chung a bit this year.

    Happy Trails and best of luck R.Harrison

    I've seen a lot come down the pike and he was special. Up there in the Hannah, Brown, Grogan class of competitor.

    Farewell.

    Re: Harrison retires Per Calyton

    One of my all time favorite patriots.

    In the offseason before he was signed, the rumors were floating that he was visiting Oakland. I live in the bay area....and Raider nation was quite excited. The next day I get into work, and before I even turn on my computer.....I have Raider heads asking me things like :

    "Rodney Harrison, huh?"

    I assumed he signed with the Silver and Black. my reply...

    "He sucks, we don't want that dirty player....good luck with that criminal etc."

    they all laugh at me, and tell me he signed with the Pats...

    to which I reply "He is the greatest player on EARTH!"




    he was a joy to watch, and will never have to buy a drink in Beantown!


    I assume he is a Hall of Fame guy, right? He should go in as a Patriot.

    He's borderline, in part because safeties have been the poor step children of the HOF. If he'd have somehow got that ball away from Tyree it would have been harder to deny him.

    Re: Harrison retires Per Calyton

    As much as I love Rodney, I'd hate to see him come back and get hurt again. He gave it all and when everyone doubted him after the injury in Pittsburg, I came up with this sig:

    [​IMG]

    And he did come back and Hell came with him.

    Now it's time for him to retire as a PATRIOT. The Chargers don't deserve to have him.

    I'm glad he's retiring as a Patriot but damn :( To me Rodney had 100 lives. Maybe he does- he'll be an awesome media man and it'll be nice to finally listen to a commentator who understands not only the patriots but the game itself:rocker:

    You go Rodney:D

    Got an E-Mail from Boston.Com that said Harrison was retiring and going to NBC.

    Re: Harrison retires Per Calyton

    Too bad. I wish he could have gotten one more ring with the Pats. He had a great career and he meant a huge amount to the 2003 and 2004 Super Bowl teams. Without him, I don't know if they would have won both or maybe either. He was a huge cog in those teams.

    Re: Harrison retires Per Calyton

    Imo Rodney Harrison is one of the best players to have played this game, his hard hits, his attitude, his demeanor on the football field. I have a ton of man love for Mr.Harrison and respect the hell out of him for playing his way and not caving into what others think.

    /salute will be miss tons!

    Re: Harrison retires Per Calyton

    We'll miss ya #37!!!

    Favourite moments. Manning picks in 03. And 04. Defence wins Championships Rodney, Defence!!! (and of course, hard hitting safety play that really takes NO prisoners.)

    The team has really lost a vet in the locker room, and with Vrabel gone I hope over the next few years a few guys step up, with Bruschi's retirement looming.

    Good luck to him though, and it'll be great seeing him on NBC when we lift the Superbowl this year...!

    Blader.

    The HGH shouldn't keep him out. This is football, not baseball, and the rules for the Hall are different.
