Default Flutie salute

I have to give a 21 gun salute to the retirement of Doug Flutie.

I doubt anyone will ever cut another path through the bushes like him. Hail Mary to the Drop Kick, from college to USFL to CFL to NFL. I was never a fan, but I will admit that I watched him where ever he went.

I don't wish anything bad on Brady, but when I heard he was the backup last year, it would have been a storybook ending if the Pats made it to the superbowl and he had to start and win.

Flutie may not have been the best qb out there, but he was certainly one of my favorites.

Media hype for endorsement purposes?....perhaps

But, Flutie is up there with the greatest underdogs in football history, IMO. (By nature, I'm not sure if underdogs can ever really be overrated is the way I look at it.)

But I always liked the guy. He just seemed happy to be playing. I'm glad to hear he got a gig with ESPN.

His last play was the dropkick, wasn't it? He himself said that "if that were to be my last play in the NFL, I won't complain." I loved that play, and admire the versatility of the entire NE staff.... namely Belichick. I am happy to see a small bit of BB in Kubiak. Flutie also made one of the most legendary throws in all of college football history.

You make a lot of assumptions around here. You don't make a lot of friends that way.

When the Colts finally beat the Pats last year, I was in eutopia, untill Flutie came in. I was almost hoping Doug would have lead some sort of amazing comeback. No matter how much it would have killed me as a Colts fan. I have never been able to root against the man.

He is the biggest image of determination in sports. His work for the autism foundation is something that should be praised, but for some reason, it isn't.

God speed Doug.

Not sure where that came from Youngstown, but it seems out of line. I think the guy got a lot of recognition for one great upset (BC Hell Mary against UM) and the fact that he is about 5'7". He lost out to Rob Johnson in Buffalo...ROB JOHNSON!!!!!

Only a childish person would make a sweeping statement about people that have a differing opinion. Just because I don't have the popular like/dislike of a player doesn't make me foolish. It makes you foolish to assume everyone thinks like you.

Flutie is a New England legend, in with the ranks of Bill Russell, Larry Bird, Bobby Orr, Ted Williams, Yaz, and - yes - Tom Brady. He's back at home now in Natick and I'm sure he'll be a hugely popular figure for the rest of his life.

Good luck Doug. Thanks...
