Personally (and maybe this might be because you say you're not good at sports) but my mind just wouldn't work that way. I loved playing. I actually sat in my car and cried when the Doc said I had to stop To me, I can't comprehend why Tom B would just decide to stop playing if he still can at that level. What he's achieved is pretty much irrelevant. I get it when they're past their prime, like Manning clealy was, you hope they can see this and hang up their boots, but even then, that's a tough thing to do when you love playing. I also don't really get the whole 'amount of seconds you hold the ball in a game' point? My career was probably 40% QB, 40% FS, 15% HB and 5% DE. 45% of my career I barely touched the ball each game! Why does that matter?
