Great dude. Happy he finally got his SB win.

He should've danced around all through the playoffs like the other clown who was retiring. I guess there was only room for 1 in that spot light... and he didn't want to get stabbed for trying to get some of the attention.

Undersized and underrated but played every down like it's his last. Also a great person in the community. Wished him nothing but the best. I hope Gino Gradkowski has learned a lot from him.

Funny! Speaking of clowns and dancing around, that's basically what the Niners were doing in the Superbowl and now they are all still bitter after a month???

I can see the resemblance.

He was getting long in the tooth. I was really worried about him this season after he got dominated by Wilfork the prior year. But he played better this year. He's a good guy who knew when it was time to go.

Ivy League grad. Didn't need to play because of that, but did for the love of the game. I wish him well.

I can see that. But I was thinking "When did Lloyd Bridges play in the NFL?"
