It can be tough for a team's new leadership to fully appreciate an organization's great former players.
The Miami Dolphins' sometimes-clumsy handling of Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas come immediately to mind. The St. Louis Rams got it right with one of their all-time greats when they announced Tuesday plans to retire Isaac Bruce's No. 80 during an Oct. 31 home game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Rams will also wear their throwback uniforms in that game (not to be confused with my old Rams throwback pajamas from 1980).
Should be a great day for Rams fans in St. Louis.
