I hope she was proud...Her son is one of the most respected men of All-Time in NFL football on and off the field, and is a sure first ballot HOF.

R.I.P. Mrs. Brooks.

Mom certainly did something right to end up with a son like DB. That's a great testament to who she was.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Amen

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

RIP

If Derrick is anything to go by then she must have been a great person.

He is a great man. She did a wonderful job of raising him to always stay true to your roots and never forget where you come from.
