Classiest Player of All Time

Drew Bledsoe

As a Cowboys fan I was proud to have him on the team for 2 years, and would have preferred to have him ride off into the sunset (maybe even with some playoff victories added to his record) as a Dallas Cowboy.  One of the greatest games I've ever seen in person was the Cowboys victory over the Eagles at Texas Stadium, 33-10.  Drew was red hot that day.  He carried himself with class and made me proud as a fan.  I respected him throughout his career and was glad the Cowboys had him for the short time that they did.

@exportpro99 and then when brady got the job bledsoe did nothing but cause controversey by saying he looked forward to getting "his job" back

I read that he actually paid for the college education of the daughters of a former Patriots scout or someone who persuaded the team to draft Brady but unfortunately died before Brady became a star. I forgot that guy's name but if it's true, which I'm pretty sure it is considering I found the article in Google News before the Super Bowl, Bledsoe has to be one of the classiest guys to ever play the game of football.

lol Classiest? Ever heard of Barry Sanders? Plus Drew Bledsoe punched a pregnant woman at a bar...did you forget about that?
Report spam or abuse
talented? yes. classy? maybe, but he wasn't as supportive of the decision to be brady's back-up as the media portrayed. he went to belichick before the 2001 playoffs and told him they couldn't win without a veteran QB.

That is a great god damn comparison. Its very true.

@DallasaDanny Well, seems like this season I won't be eating any words. Romo got outplayed by old man Jon Kitna. Can't win a 2nd playoff game if you can't win enough games to even make the playoffs.

The 2 most underated qb of all time i know people are gonna hate me for sying that but it's the truth. if he had a coach like Bill bellick (i don't know how to spell his last name) he would have won at least one or two rings as a starter
Report spam or abuse
for all the shit he went through, and the way he handled it. Being the franchise player to left on the curb, going to a horrible team and still fighting for them with all his heart and more. Then going to Dallas and being the only one who seemed to want to win, then getting dumped by the owner and fans. And through all that he never once said anything bad about anyone, he always said thanks.

NO! he is not classy at all! he is a big asshole! have u ever met him??? i met him in buffalo and he was a douche!

the player that was drafted 1st, youngest player in the pro bowl, set yard passing recordes easily, brought the bills to the closest playoff apperance, dude, this guy is probably one of the classiest. He went to Dallas and buffalo cuz he wanted to play, not 4 the rings. if he wanted some more rings, he would of stayed with NE cheaters or played 4 a better team. he brought a team from the worst to the playoffs and then the Super bowl in 96. this guy should be elected 4 in the Hall

Did Brady cheat or was he simply an unknowing participant? I think the Cowboys could win another playoff game, I just think it'll be another 13 years :p

He'll be best remembered as the guy who started before Brady and Romo.

Bledsoe is a genuinely nice guy and a class act. He's everything a QB and WSU Cougar should be.

I stopped after 14 seconds to write this: The classiest player in the history of the NFL was the late great Walter Payton.
Report spam or abuse
halloweenking, yeah drew bledsoe is a great QB but you cant say that about tom brady. tom brady is one of the best qbs ever. look what he did last year to get to the AFC championship game, he had a abunch of number 3 WRs at best and he led that offense to the AFC championship game. and yea youre right that he didnt kick those field goals but you know what, adam wouldnt of gotten the chance to kick those if tom didnt threw those passes to get that far down the field.

im a Brady and Pats fan...but to all you Bledsoe hatin NE fans....u must not have been around to witness the remarkeable turn around that Bledsoe brought to the franchise....he helped train Brady and bring the team into the greatness category....He deserves his thanks from Pats fan and Brady....thats why he got a standing ovation 3 times....keep on rockin...the classiest qb to play the game

you mean faggiest player of all time
Report spam or abuse
@pats4lifebb name a starting QB that does not look forward to playing after returning from an injury? That's not controversy. At the time, no player ever lost his job because of an injury.. Nobody knew that Brady was what he was back then.. They changed the whole offense around when he came in because he could not throw the deep ball like Drew.. Turns out it was the better way.. But Drew was a class act the whole time.. Everyone wants to start. Dont fault him for that.
Report spam or abuse
@ndwwrestler2 By the time Belichick got there, Bledsoe had been all but beaten into submission by the Pete Carrol / Ernie Zampese fiasco.. That fact that he was able to play at all after the beatings he took is a true testament to his toughness.. Remember him playing with a busted index finger on his throwing hand? He had very good years in Buffalo, and was hardly given a chance in Dallas..
Report spam or abuse
Heck of a player.. Played on some very bad teams but never said anything and kept on playing to win. And that ad he put out in NE after being traded to Buffalo was amazing. Any real Patriot fan knows how great of a player and person that Drew Bledsoe was and any Patriot fan who bashes him is nothing but a bandwagon fan. Up for the HoF soon.. He deserves to get in IMO. He put up numbers on the field and backed it up off the field. One of the few you can say " Did it right. "

Emmit Smith and Darrell Green have more class between them than Drew could hope for.

Walter Payton, Reggie White, Barry Sanders, Gale Sayers are head and shoulders above Drew and Hall of Famers. Drew has had an OK career.

maybe cause he was still good then. when i met him in 2003 he wouldnt evn sign autographs and he had nothing else to do but stand around. thats ok i talked to peyton manning and jim kelly was there. i was there cause my friend won a huge competition called punt, pass and kick. it was awesome.

@pats4lifebb classless?? He supported Brady the whole time and mentored him the entire season.. You're a Pat's fan? You know nothing about the team to make a statement like that..

Definitly one of the classiest quarterbacks ever, he was cool about tom brady getting his position when he was injured. Too bad he wasnt mobile at all and made some poor decisions under pressure. I think he was scapegoated wherever he went though.

somebody needs to sign him, hes a good passer

@etnie206 He acted with class most of the time. He complained to the media about not getting a chance to take back "HIS" job after he got healthy.

I agree, he turned people like Deion Branch into an superbowl MVP, and look what branch has done since...

He has a great name, he played really good and i think had the chance to become one of the greats, but at the end i dont know what hapend His injury and replacement to Brady was a psicological injury as well. Respect to Drew Bledsoe. He could of played in San Francisco for a few years

Wow, Bledsoe was smart, funny, and humble. I feel like nine years old watching Bledsoe play. The only other players I paid attention to in the '90s were John Elway Ed McCaffrey of the Denver Broncos. Without Bledsoe or McCaffrey, I probably would never have any interest in the NFL. Thanks Drew for helping me understand.

As a longtime Pats fan you have to appreciate what Drew did for the organization when they were indeed a doormat in the NFL at the point he was drafted in 1993. That said, Tom Brady is my man but I will always hold a special place in my heart for Mr. Bledsoe. He had his ups and downs but who doesn't?

I love this video and Drew Bledsoe has always been my favorite and one of the best quarterbacks of all times. Half the problems are when the New England fans who dislike him have something to say thar intelligence under cuts them toward respects of the game. Surely, forgotten about is that he made sure that New England and Buffalo stayed as true teams.

@Avengist YEah tell me about it. Man I've no clue wtf happened in the beginning of the season. Seriously.. look at all that talent and they couldn't win any games? Look at how they played last year compared to the beginning of the season this year. You'd expect them to improve on last year's performance, but that sure as hell didn't happen. It will be nothing shy of a miracle if they make the playoffs this year.

Bledsoe had his ups-and-downs, but in the end, how can you blame him for not "mentoring a QB as a backup"? Would YOU want to teach your replacement?

The only thing that's good about Bledsoe, is when his time ends on a team. For example, Patriots = Tom brady and now Cowboys = Tony Romo. His career meant an end of an era and a start of a new more exciting one!!!!! Go COWBOYS!!!!! 5-0 as of today

Apparently you haven't seen that many QBs then. His TD to Int ratio is better than most HOFers. His fumbles would pale in comparison to many QBs I grew up watching like Kreig and Moon but they didn't keep those stats until 1991. As it stands, Daunte Culpepper averaged over a fumble a game - Bledsoe wasn't close to that level.

i really hate him i used to be a huge bledsoe fan. but now i hate him because he failed dallas. but i like romo alot better anyway.

im a big drew fan, but he really LOST 3. Brady, Losman in Buffalo, and Romo. If drew wouldn't have gotten hurt in '01 he would be the one with 3 rings
