Social Media Reacts To The Passing Of Terry Glenn

Robert Alvarez
November 21, 2017 at 5:42 pm ET

On Monday morning it was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that former New England Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn passed away at a hospital in Dallas, Texas following an automobile accident. Glenn was 43 years old.

Glenn played his first six NFL seasons with the Patriots, who drafted him seventh overall in the 1996 NFL Draft. During that timespan, Glenn played in 68 games and recorded 329 receptions for 4,669 yards and 22 touchdowns. He currently ranks eighth in team history in receiving yards and ninth in receptions.

In his first year with the Patriots, Glenn made an immediate impact on the team, starting 15 games and setting an NFL record for most receptions by a rookie with 90 catches for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns. His contributions that year helped the Patriots earn an 11-5 regular season record, claim their first division title in a decade, achieve their first playoff victory in Foxboro Stadium and advance to Super Bowl XXXI.

In a press release by the team, Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft shared the following statement;

“We were shocked and deeply saddened by today’s news that Terry Glenn died in an auto accident,” Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said. “Terry was one of the most gifted receivers we have ever had. For so many Patriots fans, his rookie season will be remembered as one of the most impactful in franchise history. After a disappointing 6-10 finish in 1995, we drafted Terry seventh overall, and in his first year, he helped propel the Patriots to an AFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance. One of my favorite memories came when we hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional playoff game. It was my first home playoff game as an owner and just the second home playoff game in our history. It will always be remembered for the fog that filled Foxboro Stadium that day. Yet, on the first play from scrimmage, Drew Bledsoe threw a deep pass that disappeared in the fog and reappeared 53 yards downfield in Terry Glenn’s hands. We scored on the next play and ended up winning 28-3. Our thoughts and prayers are with Terry’s family, his former teammates and friends who mourn his loss.”

As word spread throughout the NFL, former teammates of Glenn along with present players took to their social media accounts to share their final goodbyes and condolences with personal tributes.

Best of Social Media: Week 13 Rams vs Patriots

Heading into their Week 13 match up with the Los Angeles Rams, the New England Patriots were seeking their 14th consecutive 10-win season and one step closer to locking up another AFC East title.

The Patriots received the ball first to open up the game, and not even four minutes into the first quarter they jumped out to an early 7-0 lead following LeGarrette Blount’s longest run of the season, on fourth down no less.

For the first time since October 23rd, the Patriots finally recorded an interception, and who better to do it than Malcolm Butler?

After one quarter of play, the Patriots still lead 7-0.

The Patriots had the ball to open the second quarter, and Brady drove the Patriots down inside the Rams 20 yard line setting up this beautiful tip-toe touchdown by Chris Hogan.

The Patriots defense smothered Rams rookie quarterback Jared Goff as cornerback Logan Ryan recorded his first sack since 2013.

Another week of questionable NFL officiating following this controversial facemask non-call.

FOX Cameras captured this Matt Patricia twin in the Gillette Stadium stands.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski would tack on a 28-yard field goal and the Patriots went into halftime with a 17-0 lead.

In honor of the Patriots 15th anniversary of the 2001 Super Bowl XXXVI championship, members of the team returned to Foxboro for a special halftime ceremony.

Troy Brown took to the podium and delivered a heartfelt statement for the ages, echoing Red Sox legend David Ortiz’s famous marathon speech.

You can checkout the full halftime ceremony at this link HERE on the Patriots website.

With the second half underway, the game didn’t get any easier for Rams head coach Jeff Fisher. Seeking to challenge a catch, he struggled to find his red flag buried within his coat.

Fisher would ultimately win the challenge, but it would only lead to a field goal. Rams still trailed 17-3.

The Patriots would get the ball back, and “Minitron” Julian Edelman hauled in this 32 yard pass from Brady following an incredible dodge of the pass rush.

It was a long afternoon for the Rams.

In the fourth quarter the Patriots were unable to find the end zone, but kicker Stephen Gostkowski had a terrific performance making all four field goal attempts, three of them from over 45 yards.

The Rams would tack on a garbage time touchdown with under four minutes to play but the Patriots would walk away with their tenth win of the season by a final score of 26-10.
