after a long, fruitful career with the Rams. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> I guess he wanted to throw the ball too bad, not receive.

Good to see him go out near the top.

Sometimes guys just aren't made to play in the NFL. But he sure was a college superstar. He was amazing to watch!

That is so dumb, IMO.

Make a few million dollars riding the bench, THEN retire! <img border="0" alt="[NoNo]" title="" src="graemlins/nono.gif" />

Nate: While you might think it is dumb, perhaps Mr. Crouch does not.

I don't purport to know his thinking in all of this, but perhaps he's not the type of kid who values jerking other people around just to "make a few million dollars."

If he truly does not want to play football, then I think he's a standup guy for admitting that and not wasting anyone's time about it.

Just my opinion....

<img border="0" alt="[Bow]" title="" src="graemlins/bow.gif" /> I respect Eric for his decision. <img border="0" alt="[Bow]" title="" src="graemlins/bow.gif" />

He had an awesome career at Nebraska that included winning the Heisman! <img border="0" alt="[Cheers]" title="" src="graemlins/cheers.gif" />

Not every good college football player will/or wants to play pro ball for the rest of his life.

It seems Eric faced the facts that he probably wasn't going to be a big time NFL player, so he decided to get out of the game on top.

Now he can continue his life and get a job elsewhere and maybe start a family or just chill for a while.

Sometimes these athletes get so caught up in the game that they don't enjoy life, their family, or their experiences.

So IMO.... <img border="0" alt="[Bow]" title="" src="graemlins/bow.gif" /> Eric Crouch <img border="0" alt="[Bow]" title="" src="graemlins/bow.gif" />
