Isaac Isidore Bruce (born November 10, 1972 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida) is an American football wide receiver.
Bruce is one of the most respected receivers in the history of the NFL.

Face Offs (700 words)
Isaac Bruce had a down year in 2003, but still finished as the #18 fantasy WR despite missing most of the last three games of the season with an ankle injury.
Bruce's TD total could easily have been higher in 2003 -- indeed there were several occasions when he caught the ball in the end zone but only got one foot in bounds -- and it should rebound in 2004.
Isaac Bruce will probably still manage to cling to the #2 job in St. Louis this year, health permitting, but the team has too much talent at his position to not spread the ball around more in 2004.
