Anybody know this? Dan Neil not only hosts the morning show on ESPN Radio in Austin (http://www.espnaustin.com/shows/morning_rush.php) ....

He's also filed paperwork to run for a seat in the Texas State Assembly (http://www.austinchronicle.com/gyrobase/News/Blogs?oid=oid:896184).



Damn he looks good ...

Have you noticed several of the Broncos linemen tend to end up skinny as hell after they are done playing? I wonder how hard it was for them to maintain a greater weight while in the NFL.

That's some Republican charity fundraiser ... I left out the bad part - he's Republican. Still, you gotta love all the 2-ring Broncos, no matter what. And damn, he must be pushing 40 ... he looks great.

You're right Chris ... it was either Khan or montrose who saw Tom Nalen just a few months after he retired, and apparently he was a stick.

Most NFL players are republicans...oddly.

Schlereth talked about that once. He said that he had to make himself eat all of the time to maintain his playing weight. Eating was part of the job, and he had to force himself to do it constantly.

Nalen apparently dropped a ton of weight too. Suddenly the last decade of struggle for the team late in the year makes sense. Too many guys who have to force themselves to pack on the poundage.

It was both of us. Nalen's brother is Mormon and goes to my in-law's church. They all lose a lot of weight.

And Dan Neil being Republican is a good thing because Republican's are awesome.

We can agree on Hamilton, and we've seen Tom Nalen, Mark Schlereth and Dan Neil. They're all shadows of their former selves.

But what about the last of the Glory Years ZBS interior linemen?

He still looks kinda hefty .... guess who?

Still, that Dan Neil is amazing ... just checked, he's only 36!

Star Longhorn alum, two SB Rings, morning drive host on ESPN Radio, and now a candidate for State Assembly.

He must be the toast of Austin ... if you noticed in that first post above, he even wears burnt orange shirts.

Clearing the way for an airborne Priest Holmes:

With his reputation, I wouldda guessed Dirty Dan was managing a trailer park in the hill country outside Austin, menacing anybody who dare crossed him ... with a sawed-off shotgun just inside his door - always wearing a wife-beater tee with a perpetual 3-day beard.

Money they make in a structured society that has decided it doesn't want poor children dying of whooping cough and starvation at age six.

They're keeping plenty of what they make.

Yeah they were talking about it on NTA, I can't remember the guys name, Lombardi maybe. That Shanahan may find a way to get him and that things will start heating up in the next two weeks in regards to Marshall. But that's a given since the draft is two weeks from tomorrow.

:Broncos:

With the average age of football players living to only in their 60s, best to get back to a "normal" weight so they limit their health problems later in life.

Well, supposedly they don't want to give up #4 either. With no 2nd rounder, they will have to get pretty creative to entice us to work out something. They'd have to give us a couple of established vets to make it work. I know Haynesworth and Landry are two players that they are said to want to unload. Not sure sure I'm interested, though. If we ran a 4-3 I'd be all for Haynesworth, but at his price tag I'm not sure we'd get our money's worth in a 3-4. And I'm not all that interested in Landry. He's weak in coverage and we have some promising young talent already on the roster (McBath, Bruton) behind the solid vets (Dwankins, Hill). Any other players of interest?

Why? Out of conference team, seems like the perfect scenario to me if they can put together an enticing package. If you mean that Marshall is likely to have continued success, well, duh. He has three straight 100 catch seasons under two different offenses...I'm sure McD knows that, barring injury, Marshal is likely to had continued success. Which is exactly why I think he is content to hold on to him unless someone comes up with a good offer. The media insinuations that we HAVE to unload him are simply untrue.

I don't remember where I heard it, but at any rate...

After a 40-something year old ex-NFL player died, the autopsy revealed extensive damage to all his internal organs. The doctor had seen only similar damage to diseased or very old persons (85+). The human body while a miracle of recovery, is not meant to take the physical abuse of the NFL.

So while I don't disagree that players (everyone, really) should get to a "normal" weight, I can only hope that his life after football is healthy and "normal".

As a final thought, while I think that most professional athletes are way, way overpaid, I wouldn't want their physical issues later in life for (insert your price tag).

I think that most teams, having read/heard of the difficulties between Josh and Brandon expect that BM won't be a Bronco next year and are really only vying with each other for the superstar receiver (i.e. Denver really isn't part of the equation because other teams will offer enough to satisfy a leadership that doesn't want the player. A low ball offer would get them the player but it won't prevent the next team from getting the player).

Despite all the earlier rhetoric, many teams are interested in Marshall. It's too bad Denver isn't one of them.

I think you're wrong. I think McD is content to ride out a one year deal with Marshall unless he gets a good offer. I don't see him shipping him off for a low ball rate.

TotallyScrewed
04-08-2010, 06:41 PM
Sorry I wasn't more clear on my point...

I don't think McD ships him off for a low ball price mostly because the teams that are interested know that they're not alone in the chase.
