My congratulations to the amazing Mr. Dick Butler and the center who changed the way the game was played, Mr. Dermontti Dawson.

But I gotta admit that I loved Curtis Martin's sometimes rambling, always heartfelt, and incredibly insightful speech.  Respected his play before, huge fan now; it even changed the way I look at Parcells.  Don't make me be the only guy to admit getting a little misty watching this shit.

A bit too much god-talk for my liking, but a good speech overall.

True dat but to each his own.  But can't somebody get a guy a glass of water?  Or even a moist sponge?

BTW, Jack Butler had more INTs in 8 years (1951-59) than Champ Bailey has had in 12 years (1999-2011), 52 to 50.  In fact, the only active guys with more are Charles Woodson (1998-2011, 54), and Ed Reed (2002-11, 57).

Considering the difference in frequency of passing, it's pretty amazing.

Oh, and current Steelers leader Troy Polamalu?  29 picks.
