  • Curtis Martin to officially retire from the NFL

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2947121

    Curtis has been my favorite player on the Jets, and possibly of all-time. It's a shame he had to leave due to injuries. It would've been fun, if he had been healthy the past couple of seasons, to try and see him move up the all-time leading rushing yards list.

        It's a shame he didn't get another chance to play, but he left a great legacy

          Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

          So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                My favorite Martin. I think he should be a coach.

                  I am not sure, but I think I remember reading somewhere that he didn't want to be a coach. It was something I read a while ago on the Jets website, so I am not going to go looking back for the article. He said he was never really interested in coaching.

                    I highly doubt he'll coach or get into broadcasting. He's said before that he doesn't truely love football, he just loves the competitive nature of the sport.

                    But he was a great player nonetheless, great runner, and a great blocker. His jersey will most likely be retired to my wall.

                    He was such a trooper, playing with torn cartiledge in 2005 for more then half a season, but unfortunately that was the blow that would bring him to the end. Almost good to see him get out, because he wants a life after football.

                      I wish he would've done this a long time ago. It'll be a strange day when there's no more #28 on the field :(

                        All of those 1,000 yard seasons just took a toll on him. He was one of the most reliable running backs in the history of the NFL and a great franchise Jet.

                            His adversaries will say and point out that never during his career was Curtis Martin a top 3 back in the NFL, maybe only once.

                            I however, believe that he still deserves to be hall worthy because of his durability and consistency. Consistency is hard to come by in the NFL, and you knew you were getting it out of Martin every year. He was a top tier back all of his career and provided great consistent production.

                            Id put him in. Not first ballot, but he should get in eventually.

                              all hail one of the great underrated, but not necessarily under appreciated, RBs of all-time. u never heard about the guy in the media, and u rarely heard huge things about him on the field, but he was nothing else but consistent and a great player. i will agree that he may not be first ballot, but he is HoF worthy in my mind, no doubt.

                              sad to see him go.
