  1. Putting aside the CTE stuff, I think wideouts (less so CBs) are just glamour positions that cater to the already-inflated ego of a professional athlete, as many RBs seem to be unable to avoid a little bit of trouble. But this isn't about "eccentric" stuff or inappropriate behavior but criminal or violent or self-destructive stuff that could be a combination of the glamour and praise, the hits to the head that offensive players often take catching passes or running down the middle, and that the people who man those positions tend to score the lowest (as a group) on wonderlic tests (intelligenc
  2. I don't even remember the guy anymore, but he was pretty good player for San Francisco, defense (not Willis but the other guy.) Anyone recall? He retired even earlier, Luke has had at least something of a career. I won't say this is more frequent than in the "past" but at least more frequent than I remember in the 90s/00s, but I'm willing to be proven wrong on that. This is a big retirement, but I can't say I've followed the game closely enough to know if Kuechly's injuries have hampered his performance or if they've been concussion related. Ah here's one: https://www.cbssp
  3. It's not a tired concept but an extremely valid one borne out by performance in certain situations again and again. However, because someone has problems with pressure for X amount of time doesn't mean they won't ever be in a position to overcome it. It's a bit different but Rich Gannon wasn't a star in this league but eventually with enough baseline talent and hard work and it "clicking" (sometimes it never does or only occasionally---see Rypien) he was a great QB for a bit. Randall Cunningham was talented but something was always missing in the moments that counted most (that and unfortun
  4. Yes, curious that Bill hasn't given much on the outside other than taking fliers on guys who are a risk.
  5. Sam's been sick for awhile, had a heart transplant in 2017. RIP
  6. Shut up, Trent. Pit bulls nowhere near the top (what does this even mean?) yet constitute a vastly disproportionate share of fatal animal and human attacks, considering that in spite of their universality in popular culture (compared to Presa Canarios) that they are not overwhelmingly common a breed.
  7. Seems like someone should do something about the dogs and their owner. And pitbulls are ugly, vicious, stupid beasts and that's why so many of their owners identify so strongly with them or make excuses for them that you don't see ppl even needing to make for other breeds. "That child made a sudden move, you can't blame the dog for tearing off its face" Like please, enough with the owner stuff, there's a reason scum don't have golden retrievers, labs or prince Charles cavaliers its because some breeds, as an aggregate, tend towards certain traits and be
  8. Didn't Grimm get on the All-Decade team?
  9. imagine having millions and thinking you need to invest in get-rich-quick/easy schemes instead of just like putting it aside. I get it when there's a manager who has account access and just steals it but losing it from uncontrolled investments is stupid. Like even if you have 20 million, invest 1 in bad scheme, you have 19 left.
  10. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/ten-former-nfl-players-charged-alleged-nationwide-fraud-health-care-benefit-program-retired It's Ok to give a link or look one up so we can comment on it. Some will dismiss this, but I don't see how you can dismiss Clinton, Carlos and these other players (likely Joe Horn and Reche Caldwell to be added) engaged in defrauding a health benefits plan to personally enrich themselves or friends. Pretty scummy thing to do. Ehh, bunch of players caught up. A few are Redskins but this is more a symptom of a certain slice of NFL players.
  11. Yes, let's pull out stats like some of us didn't watch the games and weren't on this very board talking about the positive traits, achievements and negative tendencies of the guy. No one said he was a "world beater," it's odd to even set up that strawman but to comparing him to Beck requires someone to be a moron. And Ramsey looked better than any of the young QBs we've had here except RG3 2012 and Kirk Cousins.
