    he was a WR for us but i do not know a lot about him

    someone can add something ?

    if i remember correctly he was # 82 and Bledsoe was the qb at that times

    i always thought he could have done more for us

    From what I remember, he was one of Bledsoe's favorite targets for a couple of years.
    I thought he had some tough injuries and kind of fell off the rotation.

    if i remember correctly he had a 'verbal exchangement of opinions' with Drew in a game and Drew complained with him...

    the tv showed it clearly...

    ah yes, the infamous hamstring injury put him deep in Parcell's doghouse

    I beleive a quote of Parcells was something along the lines of "I came back quicker from my heart attack (than Brisby did from his hamstring)"

    I remember that game well.

    It was the 1997 season when the Pats were at Jacksonville. I think Brisby ran the wrong route and Bledsoe was not afraid to let him know about it.

    Whatever Drew said worked because the two hooked up for at least three catches on the ensuing two minute drive right before the half (which ended with a Ben Coates TD with 3 seconds left on the clock).

    My memory isn't so clear of this game but I believe Brisby scored the game winning TD against the Chicago Bears in the regular season finale which clinched the playoff berth. THe Pats had started the year 3-6 and won 7 straight to make the playoffs.

    Ahhhh you beat me to it...ULTIMATE Brisby - what a name!!

    He made some really cool catches, I recall great hands and I think he might have been awesome with Brady & BB running his career.

    Another classic Tuna quote came when, during his 1st TC in 1993, he called out LB Chris Singleton and told him that he would give Singleton $20 if he could make just one solo, open-field tackle.
    Singleton never collected the money, just his pink slip.

    Didn't Brisby drop two consecutive passes, including one in the end zone, during their loss in the POs to BB's Browns? They had to settle for a FG, too.

    Brisby was my favorite Pats player during that time. I always thought he'd turn out to be more than he did and people always gave me crap for my unyeilding hope in the guy.

    Parcells never should have traded Fryar before the 1993 season. He was coming into his own as a player, and as a man.

    Fryar retired after the 2000 season, so he would not have been able to play with BB and TB.

    Fryar was my favorite Pat then, i was disapointed that he went to Miami of all teams.

    God, don't try to salvage a second of Chris Singleton's horrific career.

    Brisby was okay, nothing special. Bledsoe, like Brady, was stuck with a bunch of #2-3 receivers, until she came along...

    Brisby didn't "get it".

    Brisby was a big underachiever. He had all the physical tools to succeed at WR in the league, but couldn't handle criticism and had a bad attitude. In one preseason game, Brisby fumbled twice and Parcells yanked him. Brisby then whined to Tuna that he didn't have confidence in him. Parcells responded by saying, "Why should I? You give the ball away to the opposition." In a game against Tuna's Jets, the 6'1" Brisby didn't even try to fight for the ball in the endzone against 5'9" Aaron Glenn and it resulted in an INT. The Pats lost that game.

    Never liked Brisby. Every season I waited for him to break out, but he never did.

    FWIW, he fathered a kid at 16.

    That's silly.

    Michael Timpson is Welker's replacement. Brisby is too tall.

    Haha that was a nice jog down memory lane. The 1994 Patriots are one of my favorite Pats teams of all time. The leading rusher that year (Marion Butts) averaged under 3 yards per carry. Nothing but JAGs at WR. Defense ranked in the bottom 11. Still somehow rattled off 7 straight to make the playoffs
