Mike Vrabel glad to see “great teammate” Richard Seymour in the Hall of Fame

Mike Vrabel and Richard Seymour spent eight seasons playing together on the Patriots’ defense, and with Seymour being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend, Vrabel is celebrating.

Vrabel, now the Titans’ head coach, said that he was impressed with Seymour from the moment they met, when Vrabel was a four-year veteran and Seymour was a 21-year-old who had recently arrived as a first-round draft pick.

“He was so mature,” Vrabel said. “He just came in and had unbelievable stature, size, build to him, length — but mature. Didn’t act like a kid that was 20 or 21 years old. Powerful, great teammate, really fun to play with, and really instrumental in my development there as an outside linebacker having the luxury of playing next to him.”

Vrabel and Seymour won three Super Bowl rings in their eight years playing together on the Patriots’ dynasty.

  1. Can you imagine if BB didn’t rescue Vrabel after Vrabel was cut by Pitt? Add him to the long, long list of players who were pulled from the scrapheap by BB, who owe their careers to BB and their millions.

    Rob Ninkovich was as productive and as good as Vrabel and he would have been even better if he got to play alongside Seymour like that.

    Seymour was a beast for the ages. My top 3 3-4 defensive players would be Reggie White, Vince Wilfork in the middle on the other side, Seymour at the other DE spot, Larence Taylor at OLB along with Charles Haley at OLB.

    Can you imagine that?

  2. “He was so mature”,
    “Sure, Didn’t he punch Big Ben’s helmet once.”.
    You’re talking about when Seymour was with the Raiders. He apologized through the media then he apologized to Big Ben.
    I read where Ben said they laughed about it.

  3. It is never “it is all Brady”, it is always “no other QB would be able to do what Brady did with the cheap squad given by Belichick”.

    Let us see if Belichick can even “develop” a Patriots HOF.

  4. “no other QB would be able to do what Brady did with the cheap squad given by Belichick”.

    What did Brady do?

  5. Tom Brady from weeks 4-17 in 2019: 82 rating
    Cam Newton from weeks 4-17 in 2020 with the same roster: 81 rating

    Huh. One is called GOAT by folks who have only watched football since 2001 and the other is vilified. Weird.

    Win 6 Super Bowls. Something belichick has not done yet without Brady and highly unlikely ever to do.

    Who else could score 24 or more in back to back playoff without a top WR?

    ————–

    When did Brady do that?

  8. When did Brady do that?

    +++++++++

    2003 and 2004 seasons, in playoff.

    It is utterly ridiculous and ignorant that some Patriots think Brady did nothing in first 3 SB runs.

  9. 2003 and 2004 seasons, in playoff.

    —————–

    The Patriots did not Brady. 24 points is 4 TDs and Brady never had a 4 TD playoff game.

    WWE would have loved the way Ben dropped to the turf after whatever that was. That wasn’t a punch.

  11. Win 6 Super Bowls. Something belichick has not done yet without Brady and highly unlikely ever to do.

    ————

    Brady was a part of great Patriots teams that won those Super Bowls.

  12. Ever heard of balanced offense ?

    ————–

    Yes and Brady didn’t score 24 points.

  13. Peyton Rodgers didn’t know how to play balanced offense .

    ————–

    They didn’t have Belichick
