A bit old, but it discusses Drew Bledsoes life after football. Apparently, he's really involed in his community and owns a few business ventures. But, it also reveals some very sad news....
"Bledsoe laughed when asked if he intended to follow in the cleats of Vinny Testaverde, who signed with Carolina last week. A few teams have called, but Bledsoe said no. He likes what he's doing. "
Well, looks like my time as a Drew Bledsoe fan finally may have ended, as the dagger has stricken the tired, old heart of his career.
I can now only hope that he gets bored and comes back as some other have....but I doubt it.
From the times I first played with him in Madden NFL '99, to the time I saw him get injured by the Jets in Week 3, to the time I saw him replace Tom Brady to win the NFC Championship, to the times I saw him sturggling with the Bills, to the time I saw him narrowly miss the playoffs in 2005, and to the time I saw him throw that damning interception against the Giants....you were the loser. You were the underdog. You never won a Super Bowl....but, you were there. And through all of this stress....I enjoyed every bit of it. And you did, too.
Farewell, Drew Bledsoe. It's been a fun ride.
Derek Anderson....your time has come.
