And you hear the commentators bring that up again and again.
I know the Pats as a team didnt win anything. But that doesnt make eberle any less of an accomplished player. He no doubt had a hall of fame junoir career and put up numbers good enough to have his retired. The only issue with this is the timing, which i really dont mind. Eberle is still fresh in the Pats fans minds. Might as well do it now rather then wait 10 years till Regina has a good team and a whole slew of bandwagon jumpers arent asking themselves "Oh, that Eberle used to play for us?"
