What's a shame? He had a 10 year career as a RB in the NFL. He had seven 1,000 yard season, scored 68 touchdowns and is a multi-millionaire.

If you're going to feel sorry for someone, feel sorry for the thousands of kids that dedicated their lives to being professional althetes instead of getting an education only to find out they weren't good enough. These high school and college althetes need to realize the odds. They have a better chance of winning the lotto... seriously.
50 states X 52 weeks in a year = 2600.
32 teams X 53 roster spots = 1696.

Think about it. How many kids would not study in school because there were planning on winning the lotto? Sounds silly doesn't it, but that's exactly what they do in attempting to be professional athletes.

Parents need to kick these kids in the ass.

Okay, you got me there. :-b

Now you made a bigger mistake.... Thinking Q-Tip could be valuable anywhere outside of the job of running the cash register at McDonald's. If he couldn't run in Denver, KC isn't going to help either.


didn't q have a really good stretch with denver? was that stopped by ineffectiveness or injury? can't remember...

Actually, if I recall correctly he had only a couple of good games, got hurt, then became ineffective. Or he may have become ineffective first then got hurt. Either way, he became ineffective.

he had one real nice game 1st game of the season vs. the chiefs. he was ok for the next two, developed some fumbling problems and shanny lost his patience with him, inserted droughns and q then tore his acl or something and was done for the year.

joebasch...you make a good point....about how kids need to start doing better in school....

but my point was i just think they rode eddie too hard, i think his career ended earlier than it should have....and at that, his career was still solid....

Tsk tsk tsk....if you are going to correct someone you should make sure your post is flawless...

This should read, "I think the word you're searching for is "dominant". Besides, he misspelled tread as well! LOL!

Anyway, you are absolutely correct about Eddie, he was worn out. I could see him coming aboard some team in the future as a running back coach or something, but he should never put on a uniform again.[/b]


In Associated Press style, you should have written your sentence like this: I think the word you're searching for is "dominant." And, in your sentence correcting him, it would read: "I think the word you're searching for is 'dominant.'"

Thank you.

what are you gonna do? tell on me? you know you can't, buddy. it's guy code. guys don't tell on other guys. that's, uh...something chicks do. you're not a chick, are you? all right. good talk. i'll see you out there.

while you may be right (i am untrained in the art of AP), this flies in the face of my english teacher's exhortations to prevent the preposition from ending a phrase. just doing as taught.

Eddie started his decline long before he became a Dallas Cowboy. Why do you think the Titans got rid of him? And don't tell me it was because of their salary cap situation. Eddie would be nothing more than a serviceable goal-line backup at this point in his career.

Eddie George is a servicable running backs coach at this point in his career.
