Venerable Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi participated in an NFL.com chat on Tuesday afternoon. As usual, Bruschi was open, entertaining and interesting in the chat in which he fielded questions from fans.
Here are a few highlights and a full transcript from NFL.com is here:
On the Bills' acquisition of Terrell Owens:
"It affects the way defenses will be played against the Bills' offense before he even steps on the field. What's more important is how much of a leader he wants to be."
On the adjustments the Patriots will have to make without linebacker Mike Vrabel:
"We're going to be able to do it. But it's going to be very difficult. Vrabes did everything for us. I'm going to miss him."
On the left knee injury (medial collateral ligament) that kept him out of the final three games of the 2008 season:
"My knee is doing great. I definitely am excited about being back next season. We've got more business to take care of."
