    Anyone else notice how small Bruschi is looking? I'm watching the NFL on ESPN and Schlereth looks huge next to him, the blond girl almost looks bigger. I googled Schereth and on a Q&A in 2010, he stated he was 215, tho his natural body weight was probably 230. At 215, Bruschi looks to weigh about 170. I know athletes have to work out after their playing days, I wonder if he's running. I vaguely remember a Viking defensive lineman who jogged after his playing days and lost an incredible amount of weight.

    Once you have a stroke it makes sense to keep in shape and workout,Bruschi is not burning thousands of calories every week in practice and in games anymore and Spends time sitting behind an ESPN desk,so it's smart to lose some of those extra pounds and stay healthy.

    He climbed Kilimanjaro earlier this year. Probably just a matter of going after a different type of fitness for post-football life than during his career; for example. "football shape" and "Kilimanjaro shape" are probably two very different things.

    Even though he had muscle, it's still weight and the best "health" he can be in is to lose some of it.

    I forgot who I was watching (ESPN for sure), but the guy was a lineman and lost about haalf his weight from the playing days. He looked tall and thin like Herm Edwards or Tony Dungy. You would have swore he was an ex basketball player.

    All you have to do is look at Schlereth. That guy was 300lbs during his playing days. A lot of players lose a lot of weight after their playing days. They just aren't trying to keep on the weight they needed to be successful during their playing days.

    Maybe he was taking steroids and now he isn't taking it anymore? Anyone ever wonder how a young guy in great health could get a stroke? Steroid use has been medically linked to increased incidence of stroke.

    I hear ya, I was shocked when I saw him and they said his name.

    Gotta give the guy props, he probably feels eleventybazillion times better but he almost looks too skinny.

    I wonder what Vince will look like 5 years after he retires. I'm glad Tedy is looking fit.

    VW has a very poor family health history. I sure hope hes around 200 lbs when his playing days are over.

    Didn't Bruschi have a hole in his heart which led to the stroke?

    Quoted for truth. He is into marathon type of activities now which having all that extra weight would hamper that. I'm sure he's fine

    My Doctor told me that Bruschi definately was taking steroids. I'm not being a jerk, I am honestly saying what my physician told me back in 2005.

    OK. Let's presume this is true and your physician really said that. What evidence did he present?

    Just about every guy named in this thread simply stopped performing heavy squats and/or dead-lifts and their body weight dropped in a few months.

    He did say that. So your presumption is correct. Of course he had no evidense. He just made a judgment in his mind based on things he believes through his profession, his experience ,etc. At the time I was paranoid about heart attack and stroke at young ages, and perhaps he was trying to "comfort" me by saying Bruschi had other stuff going on. (I.e why he had a stroke so young) He basically said most of these current (at 2005 time frame) NFL players are on something. I'm not lying.
