Junior Seau, pictured right doing what he loved most. Playing football. I know that is what I will remember about him, won’t you? He was just a wonderful football player, 12x Pro Bowler and a 10x All Pro. As a football fan, I was deeply saddened by the news of the day. He was a terrific guy off the field as well, anyone who ever spent time with him loved him. Junior Seau, dead of an apparent suicide, gone far too soon, at age 43.

Tonight, I want to talk about what we can learn, as people, from this unfortunate situation. Was it from Post Concussion Stress? Maybe not, as he never appeared on any injury report with a concussion. We know of course, that doesn’t mean he never had one, but I am not going to talk about that tonight. What we do know is that he was depressed, and that is what I want to take a few minutes away from the game to talk about tonight, and what we should take from it.
