I'll listen to Kurt Warner over any of these other NFL ex-vets any day of the week.

My daughter came to me and wanted some advice about starting my oldest grandson in football and I said we can look around an see if he would like it first.Went to the local rec people and they told me about a flag league that he could play in so we went on a sunday afternoon and watched .After the games were over I went to a group of coachs that were packing up and was asking some questions when one asked me has he ever played before(orginized football)I said no......they said he was to far behind the others....HE IS 8 YEARS OLD.
Still it's just not them high schooll isn't much better seems every coach is Lombardi and every game is the super bowl when do the kids get to enjoy the game?Jim Garrett yup Jason Garrett's father coached at a high school in NJ and got fired and sued for forcing players to play hurt.Sorry but I get carried away on the subject of footbal and injuries.
Can't remember if I read it or watched it on TV, but it was a report about concussions and playing football. The researcher/MD talking about the evidence said that he would not suggest allowing smaller kids to play contact football (aka..tackle) until at least high school. He stated that the brain is still developing and that it's more likely to suffer more trauma taking blows at that young age.

I probably would not allow mine to play tackle until high school as well. (if i ever get any :cheeky-sm )

Thought this would be the appropriate place to share this.

1969 - Junior Seau: A Life in Pictures - ESPN

Amazing pictures. Incredible life he lived. All too short though.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

In his prime, yes, Seau was better. Overall, Lewis had a better career because he maintained a high level of play until the end. By the time Seau was in New England at the end, he wasn't much of an impact player any more.
