    Well the replay looked pretty bad- I had to turn away the second time they played it. Its a shame he was even on the field with such a big lead but we all know BB never takes the foot off the gas. 3 pretty bad injuries in the last 5 yrs....

    Last game as a Patriot, huh?

    He won't get there. But, should go to Canton. He was the defensive MVP in the
    league in 03 and didn't even make the freakin pro bowl. Because the other players
    hate him. He'd rather punch you in the mouth than play grab-ass. Thanks for the
    memories Rodney. TD Clinching int against Eagles. You played spectacular that
    day and could have been the mvp of that game.

    Something was torn there.. be it ligament(s) or meniscus unfortunately. I would bet on it.. See you in the broadcasting booth Rodney. Thanks for being such a great leader and hard hitter (although this year you've been driving me a bit crazy.. sorry...)

    Season must be done for sure. I assume career. It was a great run. Canton bound player and great guy.

    This is horrible to say but if hgh would help Rodney or Brady for that matter get back faster and healthier .....wellll.....
    Ethical question here. If an injuried player could get back healthier and sooner would you want them to take hgh if they could do it without getting caught?

    Hopefully Rodney will give it one more shot next year when Brady comes back. But, if he doesn't; thanks for everything, Rodney.

    Maybe they give John Lynch another shot? Start Meriweather and Sanders and rotate Lynch in?

    Man, I hope this wasn't his last game. If it was, though, he gave us some awesome years. Let's just hope for some good news.

    He was tearing up pretty good on the cart...

    If he's done, there goes one of the last true strong safeties left in the league. A throwback, a leader, a personification of the word champion. Anyone who has played on the defensive side of the ball at any level should have tremendous respect for 37.

    Absolutely. I want our players to be as healthy as possible as soon as possible, provided that it doesn't unfairly enhance performance on the field and it doesn't have any long-term health ramifications.

    You could tell that Rodney suspected that his career was done as he was leaving the field.

    Thanks Rodney. Big heart, true Patriot.

    I think we all know his reputation as a "dirty player" but to me he was always just a guy who played hard and had no off switch. Maybe that's just the Pats colored glasses.

    Obviously I'll hold out hope for the best, but it doesn't look good.

    The fine work of Meriweather tonight provides me with confidence however.

    I am actually kicking myself for not going tonight just so I could have applauded him when he was getting carted off the field.
