Would live for him to come back as a assistant with cowboys some day. But needs McCarthy to get his house in order without jerry getting in his business.

Wish him well!

He came out of retirement for a Super Bowl ring, he has a better shot with the Raiders then the Cowboys.

In the case of the three that you mentioned, it's more of a case of them not letting someone else dictate when it was over. I don't know who will be the Pats QB next year, but I bet he's not as good as a 43 year old Brady. Montana got sent packing because Young was waiting to get the job and the 49ers thought it was time....Montana didn't. Rice was already the greatest receiver of all time when the 49ers decided he wasn't worth what he wanted to be paid anymore. The next two seasons in Oakland he caught 175 passes for 2400 yards....He's Jerry ****ing Rice and he'll let you know when he's done.

They don't care what you/I think. Ball players play ball, it's all they know.


I think this is a precursor to coaching for 82. Gruden, and Bissachia out there probably came looking for him. Plus, they have a very troubled, and very gifted young TE out there that I bet they want a mentor for, and if he stumbles, Witt can step in. He got a taste of life on the outside looking in with the MNF deal, and hated not having any impact on the game. Now he can have some impact, and maybe even play while setting up his coaching intro.

82 Is my favorite football player ever, he did a weekly radio show here in town for 6-8 years and these are just my thoughts based on what I've heard him say.


I hope Witten and Watt retire after this year and go into Canton together, 2 of the all time great players, and great dudes the game has ever seen.

I think you're right Dale, makes sense. 82 is also my favorite player. Only jersey I have ever owned is a Witten jersey. I hate to see him play for another team but I hope it works out for him.

Witten is one of the few that tried retirement and decided he'd rather play football than talk about it. I liked him as an announcer too.

But if he wants to play, more power to him.

I'm sure it wasn't hard, at his age, to realize the number of years left that he could play is very limited. But the number of years he can be an announcer is a whole lot longer.

Several million for one more year, then retire again for good, sounds pretty smart to me.

guess you've never heard about Bruce Arians who coached and helped develop: Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, and Carson Palmer. He runs a West Coast style offense which is perfect for Brady. Tampa has a great WR core, question will be if the OL can keep his jersey clean

It'll be interesting to see. Looks like Winston in TB was sacked 47 times last year while defenses only got Brady 27 times. Winston is probably a bit more elusive than Brady too.

Surely TB will see a need there.

But then teams bring in the next great QB and offer him little protection all of the time. And then wonder why it didn't work.
