    Thanks Ben! What a legacy and many great memories.

    Can't see our next pick at QB lasting the same amount of time.

    No surprises, but the video still made me a little emotional. I'll never forget watching when Maddox went down and Ben went in, thinking I hope he can get us through until Maddox recovers. The rest is history.

    Now @thorn058 can be happy, finally used the word! :lolol:

    Glad he didn’t try to hang on longer and play for another team. Not too many start and finish their career with the same team.

    Thanks for the memories, Ben :steelflag:

    Awesome career Ben, thanks for the many years of 'seat of our pants' games.

    Random thought though..... if Brady retires this year as well..... will Ben be a 1st ballot HOFer? He should be.... but if you have Brady and Ben on the same ticket.... will the crotchety old voters select two QB's in the same year?

    One of the most exciting QBs ever, and one of the last old school QBs who would stand in the pocket like he did.

    Still don't trust him, he'll probably change his mind 2 games before the season starts. He's just saying this so his lazy ass can skip preseason.

    in regards to salary cap issues, does anybody know or think the announcement is simply for confirmation and not necessarily official?? ...meaning paperwork hasn't actually been completed. I know theres been posts on here how much his retiring after June 1 could help the team cap wise.

    Minkah would be a stellar choice!! Why not Najee?! T.J. Watt?! Pat Freiermuth?!


    A good list of options there!!
