The Bruschi effect?

Postby drmoses » Wed Oct 26, 2005 10:43 am

Anybody think that with him returning to the field, all Patriots are pretty good plays this week? This team is going to be jacked right up...

he may only play a limited amount of snaps, so his affect on the D might not be as much as it will be in a couple of weeks...

This has got to be one of the dumbest decisions by a player that I've seen. Has the money, has the rings, has a family. I'm all for love of the sport and such, but seems like he's got/accomplished enough that the risk would outweigh the reward.

Really, why punish your own body? He will regret this after 40, 50 and so on.

While I had concerns about his health after his stroke, what makes you guys think this is a big risk?

He's been cleared by his doctors. If there really was a serious risk for him to play, they'd have never cleared him, because nothing like a being the guy who cleared a player who dies from playing or becomes a vegetable could sink their careers quicker. I think its safe to assume both his doctors and the Patriots have taken every precaution to insure he isn't risking life and limb more than any other player by stepping onto that field.

And given that case, I would love to see him comeback. Bruschi represents everything I love about football. He's the undersized, overacheiving star player who's all heart and then some, and it pays huge dividends in a sport of wills. I'd love for him to ignite that Patriots defense and win comeback player of the year.

Sorry, but Bruschi is a fool for coming back. Say what you will about love of the game and having a fire in his heart for football. What about his family and his life after football? The fact that his family approves of him coming back makes me question what his family must really be thinking. Why would anyone's family be okay with him coming back after what he's been through? That's just ridiculous to think that they're truly okay with him coming back after suffering from a stroke. In my mind, they're either lying and just telling him what they think he wants to hear or they're fools just like him for thinking he should be allowed to come back. I wish him nothing but the best, honestly. But I really think he and his family are making a big mistake. He's in his mid-30's, money in the bank and 3 rings. Only a fool would ask for more after suffering a stroke at such a young age.

He was cleared by multiple, multiple doctors. Who are we to second-guess their expertise without seeing one single CT scan or anything?
