Link states he might be placed on PUP list, if he doesn't retire.

that's too bad.

By no means am I a Bruschi fan, but I have alot of respect for him.

Hope he comes back, it wouldn't be the same playing the Pats without Bruschi. :cry:

Don't say that type of thing. Zach looks just like he does... He's a team player, and a damn good one at that. It's is a sad day for the NFL when a player like this has something horrible happen to them.. I hate to play against him, but it stucks to see him leave like this..

Being on roids has nothing to do with being a team player. And zach looks no where near bruschi. Especially with Bruschi's medical problems, what is to blame?

It's always terrible when someone can't play anymore because of health issues...especially dealing with the heart. I just hope he gets healthy again first and foremost and even though I can still vividly see him picking off Fiedler in the snow at New England a couple years ago and running it back five yards for the touchdown...I still hope he gets better.

From what they say here they don't think he's coming back at all. He just had another child and really could be risking his life if he did come back. He has won 3 SB's and really has nothing left to prove.

him not playing would definately benefit the miami dolphins and that is my number one concern.

He's the type of player that I'd by a jersey for. A warrior. I only hope he can recover and get back out there.

Bruschi is one of the players I hate the most but I hate to see a players career end this way.

If he had a stroke...he's done. NO doctor would O.K. him to play football again.

I think Bruschi is one hellu'va player!! I do think the Patriots are going to have a major weakness without him!! :shakeno:

It really is a shame...it's a tough way to have a career end. I honestly can't see him coming back. What reason would he have to do so? He's got 3 Rings...

Strokes can be caused by a number of different scenarios, none of which involve steroid use.

A kid I went to high school with had one when he was 17 years old... and he was a cross-country runner. He was thin as a rail and in really good shape. Never used steroids a day in his life, and his stroke was caused by a hole in his heart - much like the one Bruschi apparently has.

I understand steroids are a hot button issue these days, but let's not go leaping to conclusions.

I think Tedi Bruschi is one of the better linebackers in the game, but with that said, I still hate the guy...he always has that smirk on his face and he loves to rub it in and celebrate when he gets a pick or fumble. I won't shed any tears if his career is over. SORRY, just can't have much good thoughts for any Patsie players. To me it is black and white.

I don't believe Bruschi will ever come back, nor do I think he should. He is/was my favorite player and is a guy that anyone would love to have on their team. Very similar to Zach, both in play and body style.

As for the roids/cause, there are many other reasons. First and foremost being involved hits. Blood clots and then flying to Pittsburgh/Boston/Jacksonville/Boston/Hawaii/Boston. I have read doctors specualte on on the air pressure as well after the hits.

Who knows, and really it is irrelevant. Guy was a solid player and family man who took a discount to stay with the team that drafted him. Who doesn't admire that in the day of "me-first" players.

I wish him well and nothing but the best. He is a class act.

The guy is a solid player, and what he's going through no one in this world should ever have to experience. I wish him nothing but the best.
