- Perhaps. After Ras joins Willie in the HOF! (Must have played in at least 5 or 6 games to get there. Ask Marshall Faulk if he remembers Willie playing in any games against the Rams.)----- GeorgeStill a US citizen.

Subject: [patriotzip] Career Spiking Up!
I was really encouraged by this article: http://bostonherald.com/sports/patriots_nfl/new_england_patriots/2013/08/challenge_leads_to_spikes_in_playInteresting to see a young player realize and acknowledge his shortcomings; and declare his commitment to maximizing his potential. I liked the pick when the Patriots chose Spikes. I have been only slightly disappointed by his first 3 seasons. I did see improvement in his play, most of it coming, as detailed in the artlcle, last season. Now we know why. Assuming that Spikes is sincere in everything he says here, we may see a really tremendous performance from him this season.There was one sentence in this article that I didn't like one bit. "Belichick has coached some remarkably successful linebackers, from Lawrence Taylor and Carl Banks as the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants to Tedy Bruschi and Mike Vrabel as coach of the Patriots."How can anyone write about great Patriots linebackers of the recent past, and NOT mention Willie?!!--- George--
