Tyler Eifert broken ankle to have surgery

Recommended Posts

There are rules named after players. They should start calling it Eifert Reserve instead of Injured Reserve.

At this point, he's got to consider quality of life - significant injuries like his are only going to hurt more as he ages. 

Sure he'd be a quality asset to any team, but he's got to think of life after football.

Retire while you still can man, it's not worth it anymore.

Its sad, but the guy should just retire.   Im sure he will attempt another comeback, but is it even worth it?

 He should forget about a return and move on and enjoy life while he still can. If he needs football that badly, he can join this forum and go from there

He should probably just retire at this point. He should have made enough money by now to get him through retirement. No need to put your body through all the hits.

 

Why is it when a guy gets injured, people feel the need get on these message boards and attempt to encourage retirement?

Empathy for the player. We've seen way too many stories in the very recent past of players who can't walk or do a lot of every day things because of the abuse they got paid to take. We've seen way too many players commit suicide shortly after retirement. Fans naturally side with the players and therefore have a certain empathy towards them. Wanting somebody to stop taking abuse to their body, especially with a guy that seems to have chronic injury problems like Eifert isn't something negative IMO it's just consideration for their life after the sport.

Tyler Eifert was one of my fav ND tight ends of all time and it sucks that he hasn’t been able to hit his ceiling because of injuries. He’s only 28 but there’s no way he’s ever going to play an entire season. maybe hanging up the cleats wouldn’t be a bad idea...

Why do we post anything on a message board?

2013: Shoulder

2014: Shoulder labrum tear and arm elbow tear

2015: Cervical neck stinger and head cranial concussion

2016: Pedal ankle ligament tear, back vertebral bruise, and back lower lumbar strain

2017: knee strain and back vertebral disc bulge

2018: Broken ankle

 

If it was a one time or even rare injury I wouldn't say he should retire. But the guy is getting hurt literally every year and at some point he should think about quality of life after football.

Because we want to systematically destroy the NFL... And we will succeed, it's only a matter of time. Resistance is futile.
