Yeah, I saw they’re releasing Bledsoe. I’m a little surprised, but not *that* surprised. It’s too bad. He didn’t live up to expectations, but then again, the Patriots didn’t want him. He was definitely an improvement over Rob Johnson. He was a marquee player, and a number one draft pick.
It’s interesting that the story of the current champion New England Patriots started while Bledsoe was still with the team. I read in a writeup on ESPN.com that Bledsoe started all but one game he played in in the NFL. I’m pretty sure that one game was in the playoffs the first year the Pats won the Superbowl — he played the entire second half against the Steelers or something.
So I guess all of Western New York will be looking at this JP Losman guy for the next couple months … Hopefully he’ll be more Drew Bledsoe than Rob Johnson.
