“I loved Junior and his family. Was out here for the funeral, and it was very emotional. Nobody loved the game more than Junior did. Nobody would be more deserving to be in the Hall of Fame than Junior Seau . . . More than stats, his love of the game, his passion for the game, and the high level that he played at at a very difficult position. I mean, him, Clay Matthews — guys to play as long as they did at that position as well as he did is phenomenal.” – Bill Belichick
