Antoine Bethea retired from the NFL today after 14 years


Recommended Posts

His rookie year was when we son the SB. One of my favorite and underrated Colts. Intercepted Brady in 2006, 2007 & 2009 regular season games (2007 & 2009 were throws to Moss), 3 years in a row except when Brady missed the 2008 season, not an easy thing to accomplish.

Dude should have been a Colt for years more than he was. One of Grig's early red flag moves.

 

A totally underrated, hall of very good player. 

Yup. Grigs definitely dropped the ball in letting him go.

proves how bad grigson was , got rid of bethea in his prime fo landry who was horrible .  Even getting rid of a prime jerry hughes who would have 10 sacks the year after getting rid of him along with a prime garcon .   Grigson has to be the worst gm of all time .

Don't forget the wasted money on Arthur Jones and Gosder Cherilus?. 1st round pick for Trent Richardson. If it wasn't for Luck we would've had many seasons with less than 5 wins. Crazy how much Luck bandaged everything together as long as he did.

That take on Hughes is one of the biggest red herrings going. Hughes made it clear he wanted out prior to Grigson. For reasons unknown he has a massive chip on his shoulder about the Colts that predates Grigson. 
 

He was never going to flourish here like he ultimately did in Buffalo.

AB tweeted this today. He wants to hear from fans on his phone at 757-210-5833. I sent him a text earlier to thank him for what he stood for as a player and as a Colt.

Only jersey I have ever bought. Bethea was the man.

 

He was the second colts jersey j ever bought after Dallas Clark. Two guys that epitomise why I fell in love with the Colts. Humble, hard-working, and committed to the cause.

all i have to say is Grigson must have been a heck of a salesman to get the job in the first place, Jim does not seem like an unintelligent guy. 

 

Should have been a Colt for more years then he was. Listening to former players of that regime describing the locker room and atmosphere after Grigson came in. It was like he took one of the best cultures in the league and just demolished it. 

 

Congrats Antoine on a great career.
