    Steve Gregory retires...

    ... the guy was way too small and lacked athleticism to play safety or anywhere else in the NFL, I know the boo birds will be out to tell us how bad he sucked, but he was an inspiration, having heart and a can't quit attitude can carry you a long way.

    ... and he returned the "Butt Fumble" to the house!

    Yeah the guy sucked, but he made more money in his career than most will make in a lifetime...and he did that while sucking. This just shows that hard work pays off even when you suck. Good for him, wish him nothing but the best...guy will probably open up ten Bass Pro Shops and make another 5 million.

    31 years old.  Looking for a coaching job.  No student loans.  I think he's in a good spot.  Good for him.

    Gregory was a nice player for what he did, unfortunately he was signed to do more than he was capable of. He should have been a #3 S in a platoon he was not a starter but then again we didn't pay him like one either. You get what you pay for and Gregory was a good $2mil/yr quality player, just not the starter quality we needed.

    Trust me, I'm an engineer!

    I actually thought he played okay with the Pats.  Not great, but better than most we've had since Harrison retired.

    According to Wikipedia Gregory is 5"11 and Mccourty is 5"10, so that means Mccourty is too small as well right ?

    I always thought the problem was the lack of depth around Wilfork and the lack of sacks it produced, don't fault the poor defensive backfield trying to clean up the mess.  Gregory gave up his body against substantially bigger players.

    McCourty is also one of the fastest guys in our team, covers the deep part of the field, Gregory for all intents and purposes played strong safety... and was way too light for that.

    seems like he'll b better as a coach and overall human than he was with my pats. knew what was coming but just couldnt get there with any consistency. body+skills were far slower than his mind. good luck to him, nice guy!
