Tedy Bruschi, longtime leader of the New England Patriots has recently decided to retire after 13 hard fought seasons and three Patriots Super Bowls. ” Being a Patriot my entire career is something I’m very proud of,” said Bruschi. “There is a sign when you come into this facility that says ‘Do Your Job’. I did my job for 13 years. Now my job is done. My job is done. I’m looking forward to living the rest of my life.”
Bruschi was a definite stand-out player and leader for New England, as he was one of the major components to the teams streak of success this past decade. The last Super Bowl the Patriots and Bruschi won was in 2005 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ten days later he was hospitalized after experiencing numbness in his left arm, left leg and blurry vision and was diagnosed with a mild stroke. Bruschi’s NFL career was nothing short of remarkable knowing he was able to fight back and return to the team after the extremely unfortunate occurrence.
Quarterback Tom Brady showed very high praise for his teammate, saying “I think Tedy, it’s all those things. You can’t put Tedy Bruschi into a box. That’s one thing about Tedy. Tedy is a wonderful man, he’s a wonderful person. He’s a wonderful father and husband, and he set an example from the day that I got here on what it means to be a professional athlete and what it means to play for the New England Patriots.”

The former Penn State All-American led the Big Ten with 12 sacks last season in his thirteen games played. Buffalo will rely heavily on Maybin to make immediate contributions after finishing their 2008-2009 campaign with just 24 sacks as a team. His agent Chafie Fields told The Associated Press: “Aaron’s happy to be here and ready to go to work.”
The Maybin deal leaves two unsigned first round picks; offensive tackle Andre Smith and wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who has informed the San Francisco 49ers organization that he’ll be willing to sit out the entire season if he doesn’t receive an adequate offer. The Buffalo Bills have two more preseason games against the Green Bay Packers and the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers before the regular season kicks off. Week one has the Bills scheduled to take on the New England Patriots September 14th at Gillette Stadium.

Chad Ochocinco made the highlight reels last night after showcasing his new found talents with the special teams unit. Late in the second quarter after a Cincinnati touchdown, he took the field as the kicker and knocked it right down main street to give the Bengals the point they needed to win 7-6. Another surprise came soon after when he kicked off to the 10 yard line following his field goal. ” ‘Esteban’ Ochocinco is back, the most interesting footballer in the world,” said Ochocinco. “Everyone has to remember, I’ve always said that soccer is my number 1 sport. I think Ronaldinho would be proud of me right now.”
All of the game action was supplied in the first half, knowing both teams were unable to put up any points in either of the remaining quarters. Tom Brady made his second appearance of the year and provided some solid play for the Patriots. He completed four passes for 57 yards in his short time out on the field. The real test passed when Brady was hit hard in two out of the 13 snaps he took. Both times he fell to the ground he was able to hop right up, ensuring the fact that his knee is 100 percent ready for the season ahead.
New England is set for two more preseason games against the Washington Redskins and New York Giants, before hosting the Buffalo Bills on September 14th for their regular season opener at Gillette Stadium.

The New England Patriots will host the Cincinnati Bengals tonight at 7:30 for their 2009 preseason home opener at Gillette Stadium. Quarterback Tom Brady will make his second start after his season ending knee surgery last year. This past week against the Eagles, Brady threw for two touchdown passes and 100 yards. As Brady takes the field tonight, Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer will still be sidelined from battling an arm and ankle injury last season. He has been wearing a protective boot and reportedly has been taking snaps again in training camp. Palmer is quite eager to make a return to the gridiron, saying “It’s just hard to be in training camp but not practice. It’s the best part of the day,” he said. “I just want to be out there practicing and getting better.”
Brady is at a different stage of recovery, knowing he is putting his knee right back out into the field of play. “We like it when Brady just gets to stand there, throw the ball, and he just watches the receivers…We want him just to stand there and hang out.” Pats guard Logan Mankins said. “I don’t know whose guy it’s going to be, but eventually (Brady’s) going to get drilled.” Brady and the Patriots are still waiting on that initial hit to the legs to really test out if he is 100% okay.

Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens missed practice yesterday due to a sprained toe. He reportedly jammed it during a pre-season game against the Tennessee Titans last Sunday, and complained about later that night through his Twitter page. Owens wrote: “My toe is aching!” followed by a concerned face – “:-/” Head coach Dick Jauron said Bills camp was much quieter without their stand-out receiver present. “It was different,” said Jauron. “We know what kind of player he is and what kind of player he’s been his entire career, so when he’s not on the field, you’re aware of the fact.”
Hopefully Owens is able to take a couple of days and re-energize himself with T.O’s Honey Toasted Oats before Saturday’s pre-season game against Chicago. Buffalo’s first regular season game is set for September 14th at Gillette Stadium against the New England Patriots.
