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.
NEVER, EVER CAUGHT GRIPING ABOUT HIS SALARY (SOMETHING COLES, AS TOUGH AS HE IS, MADE AN ENTIRE SUB-CAREER OF DOING)
Ellis makes big plays in big games constantly.
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.
