Were it not for the small matter of Bruschi having chosen to retire, who would you rather have available to be on the field -- Bruschi or Seau? I specify "on the field" because: We know both gentlemen are outstanding locker room presences We can't know enough detail about what happens in the privacy of the locker room to choose one over the other on that basis What happens on the field, however, is quite public. So we can judge. To a first approximation, the choice should be Bruschi -- most recently an elite player, most recently a solid starter, etc. But did Bruschi's speed decline so far that he would loose to Seau in a footrace? Is Seau less of a liability in coverage than Bruschi, notwithstanding that Bruschi was an INT TD machine not that many years ago? If so, perhaps Seau is actually the better player to have.
