The only difference between the NFL season and a military deployment

  • Traveling in comfortable planes
  • Staying in nice hotels
  • Eating good food
  • And millions of dollars a year to do it

 

Poor Tom...

Tommy has some problems now days with his thinking but it happens with everyone in life at times.

Yeah I mentioned that in the other thread. 

 

Pretty poor comparison, especially with Veteran's Day approaching. 

 

Also add: risk of death considerably lower. 

 

I'll never forget watching my brother-in-law say goodbye to his infant son and then get on the plane destined for Afghanistan. The absolute pain of wondering if he'd make it back to be with this child still chills me to this day.

Yep - it's not an easy thing.  I was in the Air Force for 20 years.  The scariest things I ever had to do was ride through a Typhon in a C-130 and sit in a bar full of Marines!

He seems to be falling apart. He also said there is a lot of bad football this year. But what he didn't mention is his play and the Bucs are a part of that. Looks like his marriage is done because he chose another year instead of retirement. Comparing the NFL to the military is just about the dumbest thing he might have ever said. Reasons listed above. Sounds like mid life crisis

Tom is human, he knows his football days are almost behind him. He lost it Sunday on the sideline.

Big Ben said Tom Brady did not look like he was enjoying himself vs the Steelers, felt like he didn't really want to be there. He definitely deep down regrets coming back with all his personal issues to go with them. It has to be wearing on him, the future of his access to his kids etc. and making him realize life is far bigger than the sport when it is all said and done. It could also be affecting his ability to think clearly (had to throw that jab in :)).

That's just like the air force,  except for the millions of dollars

Got smoked by PJ Walker and the tanking Panthers. Looks like he’s not a God after all. Should’ve retired after his Super Bowl win. 


…or after the loss to the Rams in a close playoff game last year…no shame in losing to the eventual SB champion in the divisional round.

This  :number1:

 

I think about his kids, and how they adore him and proud of his accomplishments  (rightfully so)

Now having to see the country week after week ridicule-ing their father (again rightfully so) for choosing  football over family in what's looking like a mediocre at best ending to his career and also witnessing a very nasty public divorce of their parents. 

 

It didn't have to be this way. 

 

Could have gone out on top.

I think about his kids as well. I work with kids on a daily basis. Kids are resilient, and can overcome and deal with a lot. But I will say this, they still have feelings and get hurt from parents' actions and choices. They often try to mask these feelings, but they're still existent, even if it doesn't look like it from the outside. 

 

Imagine watching your dad for years playing football. Being proud of their accomplishments and wanting to share that experience. Imagine waiting for the day to come when he's finally able to share your own life moments. And then imagine the disappointment knowing yet another year will be spent without him.

    • I have the same as you do, these games are pretty easy to pick is why. Subject to change though if I find out there is a key injury to someone. I have feeling 'Easy' will pick the same as us because I can't see how he doesn't. Maybe he will pick the Eagles, but I like the 49ers like you do. Eagles are due for a loss and they have struggled at times lately in their wins. I can't even pick against the Chargers this week  .   My picks: Seahawks 20 Cowboys 23 Colts 24 Titans 17 Chargers 24 Patriots 13 Lions 26 Saints 20 Falcons 20 Jets 17 Cards 13 Steelers 20 Dolphins 31 Commanders 16 Broncos 19 Texans 27 Panthers 16 Bucs 27 Browns 20 Rams 27 - no Myles Garrett makes this an easy pick. 49ers 24 Eagles 23 Chiefs 30 Packers 23 Bengals 19 Jags 26    
    • Thats a strange way to be.  No team is elite this year but someone is still going to win and its ok to celebrate it.     Every SB winner got lucky in some major way at some point.  The chiefs are lucky no one drafted PM in front of them   You just set yourself up to not enjoy this year no matter what because the league is having an off year
    • I’m sure the Kansas City chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will feel the same way if they win the Super Bowl this year… 🙄    “Man, it just doesn’t feel right to win when so many teams were playing crappy football this year.” 
    • That's fine. I love watching good football and I want the best team, not the luckiest, to win. 
    • It could be better or worse with Richardson, he had good and bad stretches when he played and is assuming he was healthy the entire season.   manning would have them in the them as one of the top teams, I don’t think that’s a stretch.   luck wouldn’t have them at the manning level, but would be below the top couple teams.
