[QUOTE=CTjetfan52;3543196]Ellis is an absolute favorite of mine for many reasons:
Loves to jaw with the opposition. Never backs down from anything.
Plays hurt. How about the broken hand against cincy and started the next week then surgery and right back in the line-up? Ever had a broken bone? I have. They hurt. All the time. How about when you're having to use the broken bone to club 320 lb guys out of the way then tackle a 220 lb guy running right at you as hard as he can?
NEVER COMPLAINS. A TOTAL TEAM PLAYER.
[B]NEVER, EVER CAUGHT GRIPING ABOUT HIS SALARY [/B](SOMETHING [B]COLES[/B], AS TOUGH AS HE IS, [B]MADE AN ENTIRE SUB-CAREER OF DOING[/B])
Ellis makes big plays in big games constantly.[/QUOTE]
Absolutely true. Just a tough, tough MAN.
Since u brought it up, I don't miss Coles as well. His persistent demands for more $$ ws a major turnoff.
[QUOTE=Jack Straw;3542218]Give me a break, dude. Groh, Herm, and Mangini have nothing to do with Ellis' solid but not spectacular career. You conveniently fail to mention that Ellis made the Pro Bowl under Herm in 2003.[/QUOTE]
Herm also wasted Ellis his first year here trying to make him DT
