It’s a somber day. One of the greats, Weapon X, is calling it a career after 16 exciting years.
Did Brian Dawkins play a Hall of Fame worthy career? I don’t know but I look forward to reading the debates.
This is what I do know. Brian Dawkins terrorized the NFC East (AFC West too). He hit hard and is in the running for most popular player in Eagles history. Above all else Brian Dawkins is smart. He played smart and is smart enough to walk away while he still can, he suffered a serious neck injury that forced him to miss the end of last season. It’s just a shame we didn’t get to see him play with Peyton Manning.
Thanks for the memories, Mr. Dawkins.
