Get Well Soon

The big news Wednesday was that Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi has decided not to play in the upcoming 2005 season. Contrary to a TV report on Tuesday night that stated it was "90 percent sure" Bruschi would be back, the All-Pro linebacker will take a year off to focus on his recovery.

I think it's a smart move. He has nothing left to prove to Patriots fans, and his health comes first. No one wants to see his kids grow up without a father.

On the field, the Patriots have prepared themselves for this outcome. They signed free agents Chad Brown and Monty Beisel to help shoulder the load at inside LB. I wonder if Bruschi will have a visible role at training camp helping the new players learn the Belichick system.
