One word summs up this whole situation........SURREAL. During a phone conversation with csn's Derrick Gunn, Dawk is asked a few obvious questions than he is asked if he automatically assumes a leadership role in Denver, and thats where dawk cant go on anymore, gets choked up, and cuts the conversation short. To hear a player that emotional after singing a deal like he received at his age is just another testiment of his character and his feelings towards this city and this team. I have always had the impression that the average player does not really care when they loose a football game because they get paid millions whether we win or loose (ex: Asante Samuel all smiles after the NFC championship game loss). But over the past year dawk has shown that the Philadelphia Eagles have meant just as much to him as it does to us fans. The typical older NFL player who is put in this same situation usually gives off the "best for me, if they dont want me I will find someone else who does" impression but the way Dawk has reacted breaks the mold and only makes this whole situation that much harder to accept. With that being said, I want to wish Brian Dawkins all the best and I want to thank him for giving this city, this team, and all of us fans EVERYTHING he had to give.
