    Thanks for posting that. I wonder why he doesn't try and get into coaching? I always thought that he could probably be a pretty solid DL coach.

    I think he seems to be handling retirement better than most. I particularly like how he seems to recognize his imbalances of perspective that NFL history had implanted in him. He's not asking for anyone's sympathy, but seems to long for a more action in his life. I imagine that's how so many players feel after their moment is finished. Some, like Trevor, seem to handle it well. Others (ironically like Junior Seau proved today) do not.

    Seems like we won't be reading about Trevor Pryce going bankrupt anytime soon... and I think that shows you that these athletes who spend their money like buffoons are not as common as we think.

    That was a great read. Bodymore, murdaland? Always liked price, i know he feels he got a raw deal here but im happy for the time he was. Seems like a really smart guy and certainly was a technician out there, so coach does seem like a fit.

    SI did some research on the subject and found that that upwards of 75% of NFL players experience some kind of financial stress or bankrupt within 3 years of their last game.

    75% is pretty common in my book.

    He was referring to something spray painted on a wall in the HBO series, "The Wire". Which, IMHO, was one of the best series HBO has ever done.

    Most NFL players never see the big money the stars do. What is the average length of service? Not more than a few years. A lot of these guys probably never see more than a few hundred grand, and most likely aren't putting much of that into a 401k.

    People thought that Gretzky would be a great coach and that Jordan would be a great owner/executive...
