    At least he doesn't go about it like Favre does.

    But please, we need younger bodies. Not older. If we're injured and desperate, I'm sure we'll call em if he wants it.

    I really, really hope that we don't end up in a situation where we need him.

    I love Seau and he is a HOFer but please do not sign him back up,If we do then its because the defense is in terrible trouble with injuries. - We need to step forward on the youth movement instead of getting older.

    I hope PATs don't need him
    but on the other hand I'd sure like to see him get a ring.

    As long as its Bruschi he's replacing, I'd be ok with it. Obviously if it's Mayo we're screwed.

    Only want him back if it's a last minute, him or nobody, win or lose situation...his time is well passed but he might have something left for a couple of games at most.

    This guy wants a ring so bad. Maybe if bruschi goes down we can pick him up and use him in the locker room.

    Comparing Seau's situation to the neverending Favre melodrama is apples and oranges.

    Yea, One guy holds NFL Teams as hostages and the other will play for only ONE team and only IF they need him at the end of the season.

    If Farve left the Packers and said that he would come back if needed - then you could make the comparison.

    Seau's commitment is more to Bill and the team then it is to his ego - unlike Farve.

    You mean the Favre that wanted to stay with just one team, but wasn't wanted there? The Favre who then wanted to go to one other specific team but was prevented from doing so by that same first team?

    Seau was a free agent and Favre wasn't. That's the difference.

    We're also talking about the guy who was basically holding his team hostage with his "Will I retire or won't I" routine (which I've called the Favre Annual Retirement Tango).

    Basically a good acronym. However, it suggests a duration almost at the opposite extreme from the real one. :)

    Ah man! You gotta love junior. He's a warrior. Just won't give up. It would be cool if he can mentor the younger guys. Thats what we need, more older guys teaching the younger guys. Hope we dont need them to play D thats all!

    Massive difference between Seau and Favre. One craves the attention and one is chilling out in the background having fun, having told a certain team if they need a favour he'd help them out.

    I truly believe this is the year we will have no significant injuries on defense!

    ... we didn't even make it into camp this year before one of the linebackers lost an ACL.

    Hahaha, man, Junior is loved out here. The guy just chills on the beach, works out, and surfs pretty much all day. Some of my friends that are out a little closer to him see him regularly, and can attest that that's pretty much what his day seems to consist of. If the Pats need him, he'll suit up, and if not that's cool too. There is absolutely no drama, no vindictiveness, none of any of that. And the drama and vindictiveness behind all of it is what irks me a little with the Favre situation, so I don't really see them as very comparable.

    Well, getting younger tends to help with injuries. In 2007, our starting LBs were Thomas (30) and Bruschi (34) inside rotating with Seau (38) and Colvin (30) and Vrabel (32) outside. Average age = 32.8

    This year, it looks like we're going to be starting Thomas (32) and Woods (27) outside, with Mayo (23) and Bruschi/Guyton (36/23) rotating inside. Average age = 28.2.

    When you subtract 4+ years out of the average, I don't think it's unrealistic to be hopeful for fewer LB injuries.
