Jason Taylor's Pain while Playing in the NFL.. - January 14, 2013, 09:20 AM

You have no idea what these guys go through after the game. This dude went through all kinds of hell to stay on the field. I think I will just stick to being the "armchair quarterback" I've always been. Much safer.

I still have an iffy feeling about him. When he was playing for the Redskins he was often out at area bars late on practice days or two days before a game. Thats really doesnt seem to align up with that story.

Crazy.

While I think that a majority of the guys that play are making incomes that they would never have the opportunity to make in the competitive real world, they do put themselves through amazingly crazy stuff to do it.

Kinda crazy. The reason why the average NFL career is 3-4 years is twofold:

I.) Guys are always at risk to being replaced by the younger/quicker/stronger guy

II.) The physical trauma of NFL level football absolutely destroys human bodies - even strong healthy ones.

Sorry while I do feel for these guys, they are after all paid entertainers. They make the money to go out and play football. They are not saving anyone nor should be hero's. They can quit anytime. It is THEIR choice to play injured because after all they are adults. They go out and have a party for years and not expect to suffer from being hit day in and day out? I guess more of them should get a education while playing football. Something to fall back on after they cannot play anymore.

I worked with a guy that had a chance to go into the draft. I asked him why he didn't he said. "They hit so hard now that my entire body would burn, can you imagine how hard a pro player hits? Fuck that I have a free first rate education I am going to use it."


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

When you consider that a career in pro football means maybe ten years, after which you got no legs left, and during which you're a painkiller drug addict, a million a year sounds about right. So when people bitch at me about the money I made, I have a pat response: Go fuck yourself.
