A few things have occurred over the past few days and I wanted to just say my thoughts on them.
This story broke my heart and it just brought up memories of Junior Seau’s death. We don’t know what caused it and if it had anything to do with brain damage. But it reminded me a lot of Kenny McKinley and how he was suffering through a hopeless feeling and killed himself after trying to rehab back onto the Broncos.
I want to put this out there that people who have never been on the verge of suicide should never judge people who do commit suicide. You’ll never understand what it takes to push someone over the ledge. And I don’t want to judge Murdock for his actions. There could have been a lot of factors to it.
But this death adds more to the black cloud over the NFL and its current state of players killing themselves. I hope this isn’t part of the concussion issue that’s going on. But at the same time, something wrong is happening and we need to stop it.
Which team will Peyton Manning choose?
I was just searching through the Internet and came across this picture. Pretty good Photoshop work from whomever created it.
I will guess that the body of the Titans player is Matt Hasselbeck. The Bronco one is definitely Tim Tebow. I want to say the third one is Alex Smith but the arms look too skinny. Maybe it’s not even a 49ers body.
This whole thing has gotten to the point where I am sick of it. Of course, since I am covering the 49ers, I have to pay attention to it. It’s not as crazy as FavreWatch, but it’s still pretty annoying.
