LT looked the most moved and most deserving of all the clips I saw. The teardrop is in the house.

There was a delay for LT.

Terrell Davis had some trouble carrying LT's luggage.

I loved the fact that LT said that Marty was the best coach he ever played for, and had Marty stand up and take a bow. The Chargers' crowd chanted "Marty! Marty!" as he stood and waved.

It was a wonderful moment, and the final death blow to the Marty haters/Norv apologists. Fittingly, Norv was not even mentioned.

Tough to not include every teammate he played with. He didn't mention Antonio Gates by name who took time to fly out and drive to Canton from Detroit to see his speech. At the very least he was asked to stand up to acknowledge being a teammate.

LT's speech was inspirational and unifying. Something our political leaders are lacking in word and policy at the moment.

I agree 100% - it brought a tear to my eye.
