Patriots To Honor Tedy Bruschi

By Levan Reid, WBZ-TV Sports

BOSTON (CBS) – Monday night is turning out to be a huge affair. 

First the Patriots are taking on the Jets and that promises to be a game that has national appeal. 

Then at halftime, the Pats are going to honor Tedy Bruschi.  They are not going to retire his number 54, but honor the time he played for the team. 

Bruschi gave his thought’s on retiring numbers.

“I wouldn’t mind seeing another linebacker wear 54, and see him perform well,” Bruschi said.

“I know there are a lot of Patriot numbers that are retired, but I think it would be nice to see all the numbers unretired. In football, you have a lot of players and there aren’t a lot of numbers to use, so I think unretiring the numbers and adding some nostalgia to the stadium with a Ring of Honor — with names and numbers and years they played — would be something great.”
