    Bruschi was smaller. In his prime he could cover, blitz the QB, make picks and stop the run. When Bru couldn't get into the same zip code as a RB, he wisely retired. I remember the video. I see this as a positive for HT.

    Love HT, it could be better for him as a LB but I always loved his versatility to line up as a defensive end (see sack in the Superbowl against Atlanta when he caused a fumble).

    The draft implications are that they will need to add another DE, I hoped they would anyway but now it is a done deal.

    I remember that Jags game he got flattened by a pulling guard on a run to the left side. That and getting torched by Keryion Johnson against Detroit.
