Statement from Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick on Junior Seau

Statement from Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick on Junior Seau:

"A day later, it is still hard to believe.  Of all the players I have coached, nobody was more full of energy and vitality than Junior Seau.  He respected and inspired every single person he came in contact with - players, coaches and support staff.  His defied the odds by playing two decades in the NFL at a level and with a youthful spirit rarely seen but appreciated by everyone.  Junior will always be remembered as a intense Hall of Fame player from the old school.  He was a charismatic icon.  At the same time, as a human being he was as caring, warm and lovable as they come.  That's what I will miss most of all.  It was a privilege to have coached Junior Seau.  My condolences to his family."
