Perhaps now we can stop the anguished cries for his return.

I would once again remind everyone that he has had one good season in the past four - and just because it occured in a Redskins uniform doesn't make him a great Redskin.

you are right, but personally, i liked how he played the game when he was here. I saw a lot of passion from him when he was on the field. I really liked this guy, contrary to what most of the people here feel, and while i understand why most of you dislike him, I like him, and am somewhat saddened to see him go down like this.

I agree Big C. But the guy was just way to expensive for what he's worth.

Big C 07-06-2004 11:00 AM

that is also true. I admit while he was here, i saw him on the injuries list as "probable" or "questionable", and it was quite un-nerving.

Big C 07-06-2004 11:03 AM

i meant to put each week there, sorry

So basically the guy was never 100%. Just imagine how good he could've been if he was healthy. Emphasis on "could've".

Big C 07-06-2004 11:40 AM

yeah he had the potential to be one of the best i think

He can always get a job as a late-night bouncer at Denny's! :boxing:

Just keep him away from IHOP! ;)

I figured it was his back when things were delayed with the Bengals. I'm glad we didn't pay him big money after his good year with us, or we'd be in even worse trouble on the d-line, if that's possible.

Plus, he really wasn't a Gibbs guy: injury-prone and broke his wrist in front of the International House of Pancakes. Man.

I thought I also heard he was bipolar or something. I'm not sure, but I thought that was the explanation for his behavior last season with the Broncos. Once again, I'm not sure about this, but I could have sworn it was him I heard it about.

For those of you who don't know: I'm not sure what Barrett Robinson was talking about during his interviews after the Super Bowl about not being able to control his actions, but that's not really what bipolar is. I had a friend who was bipolar (manic depressive is what it used to be called) and she would become very depressed at times. It basically makes your highs higher and your lows lower.

either way, he's a pro sports player... with that kind of money, you either learn to control it (taking medicine, talking to the support staff about what they can do, etc), or you get out.

It's not easy, but that's life... hopefully this gives him time to figure things out... he should have enough money to last him a while.

How long is a while when you live a pro-athlete lifestyle?

well, it depends on how well you budget, and if you insist on living above your means... if he had insurance, he might get a payoff out of that...

but there are lots of people who spend way more than they can afford to and don't plan ahead.

if he spent all his money on cars and jewelery, well... then that's too bad... but he got enough to open some retail stores/car lots/etc...

if he bought houses and cars, those have value too, either way, he's no longer a pro athlete, so it'd make sense that he can't afford that lifestyle anymore.
