Derrick Brooks And The Hall Of Fame

April 18th, 2014

derrick brooks 0201aAll NFL fans like Joe are chomping at the bit for the draft get to here. It is 20 painful days away. Can’t get here soon enough.

But there’s another event Bucs fans are drooling over to arrive, and we have all but forgotten about it while in the fog of endless mock drafts. That is the induction of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014, which takes place 15 weeks from tomorrow, Aug. 2.

Highlighted in that class is none other than double-nickel, Mr. Derrick Brooks. The former Bucs great outside linebacker visited Canton recently and sat down for an interview to talk all things Bucs and, of course, the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    I find it amazing after all this time. Just listening to him speak. He makes you want to be a better person. At whatever it is you may be doing. They say athlete’s should not be put up on a pedestal as a role model. But Mr Brooks is one of the few exceptions. If my nephew looked at me and said. He wants to grow up to be Mr brooks. I’d feel proud of that.

    Thank you for your years of excellence to us fans Mr Brooks.

    Now make my tampa bay Strom a contender please!!!!

    Such a class act on and off the field. The only jersey I own is the creamsicle double nickle. Thank you Derrick Brooks for making me proud to be a Buccaneer fan.

    It’s the man’s birthday as well so couldn’t be more fitting for a true NFL legend

    Ha ha ha Mike. I have a Tampa Bay room too. I have jerseys hanging on hangers all over the walls (Brooks included), flags, banners, rookie FB cards, hats, posters, pennants on and on and on.

    Thanks Joe, this induction means more than Sapp’s. DB deserves a lot more hype than he’s getting from the media.
