Reflecting on light as veteran tackle retires from patriots – China Mirror Finish Aluminum Sheet

Don t put a position on him, Belichick said. Belichick had well-laid plans. At least that was what he figured. Light had carved out a nice career at Purdue as a left tackle, butBelichick figured in the NFL he d be better suited on the rightside. At training camp, Light was playing right tackle, and a bunch ofbodies ended up in a pile with Light at the bottom. Aluminium Composite Signs

Belichick walked over and said, What s wrong with you? Light said, Coach, I ve got a high ankle sprain. Belichick couldn t believe it. Not that his second-round pick wasinjured – he apparently had drafted House. He said, Matt, how do you know you have a high ankle sprain? Yourankle hurts. Don t give me an instant diagnosis.

You just go outthere and run the plays. Don t start playing doctor here. Light was out five weeks. We kind of got off to a rocky start, Belichick said, but asLight made his retirement official Monday at the Hall at PatriotPlace, Belichick smiled, laughed and confessed he admired Light.Thefeeling was more than mutual. For all the demanding, just hard-headedness and just genius thatyou bring to every day – and even though we ve had somedifferences in the way we look at things – I can t begin to tellyou how great this has been, said Light.

For taking that chance on me, for sticking with me through someof the rough times, through the sickness, through the injuries,through the many issues that I ve had, I appreciate it. In his time in New England, Light turned out to be a Hall of Fameprankster, a locker room pundit, and Tom Brady s bodyguard. He wasalso a three-time Pro Bowler, a three-time Super Bowl champion, anda team leader who came to be identified with the Patriots renaissance. It long had been assumed that Super Bowl XLVI would be Light slast dance. Logan Mankins, who has lined up next to Light in the trenches thepast seven years, said the two of them had several late-night,heart-to-hearts about retirement.
