I'm not sure if I get what you're saying. That link backs up what I said; as long as you're three years removed from high school, you can declare.

And...

Very sad about Seau. Only 43...

Nevermind about that sometimes I don't know more about the drafting eligibility system much.

A tribute to one of the best LB's in the game, I've seen him play in Patriots uniform and was awesome to the max. I kinda thought he would comeback with the Pats again after that perfect streak ended in SB42. He had a great life and could've done something through to help NFL push the boundaries against concussions being alive.

A career since 1990? Man, that's longer than Favre's career.

Also. With the career ending into retirement this past year. I'm going to speculate: his motivation to kill himself was an extreme case of the mid-life crisis.

Of course, can't know that for certain. That's just my guess.

Wow, the Seau death is a real shocker. Well...some things in life affect people more than others. Some people don't handle being away from the field or spotlight. Some people can't handle domestic breakups. Some let pride or perceived images of masculinity get in the way of asking for help.

Hopefully Goodell and others will get something in place to help players for what happens after their careers. Geez...I hope this doesn't tarnish his legacy much. Surely NFL Hall of Fame by 2015.

The best hope is that we make it to the playoffs without him, and without taking too many other injuries, and he manages to make it back at 100% just in time for when it matters most. Given that playoffs are still 8 months away, and if I recall an ACL tear takes 6-12 months to heal, there's a chance. I'd just rather not lose him for good by making him go in too early and making it worse.

It was an Achilles tendon tear. Even with it reportedly being partial, I'd be shocked if he's at 100% at any point next season.

But I definitely think the team can advance to the post-season without him. My worry is the run D falling off a bit.

The news regarding Seau certainly is coming at a fitting time. I'm not sure what the solution could be, but it's definitely going to be looked at more seriously than ever before, I feel like.

More than 100 former NFL players sue league over concussions

Someone suggested returning to leather helmets on the radio earlier. Sounds ridiculous at first, but it's something to ponder. Linebackers like Seau definitely use their heads as battering rams, maybe not directly hitting head-first always, but certainly with little regard for their brain's safety. Problem is, everyone is used to playing like that and I highly doubt people could make the switch easily. My personal opinion is these guys sign up for it and they should see what is coming, but it also touches upon a sociological issue: is this just a nicer version of Roman gladiator combat? We love and enjoy it just as the Romans did, revel in the bone crunching hits, want guys back on the field ASAP after injury, etc. I certainly am guilty of the mentality. Then so many of these guys either die early or end up with degenerative brain function. It's just a less gruesome, more drawn out means to the same end.

Though I really wouldn't change anything, personally. Put the information out there so everyone is aware and plays at their own risk. More research still needs to be done. It's just an interesting topic to ponder.

The Ravens should still make the playoffs. I see them winning at least 10 games as long as they don't have any more extensive injuries to key players.

It's up to Baltimore's offense really. Even without Suggs their defense is still a power. Can Flacco do more and have weapons or will they be too reliant on Rice as usual?

Seems Plummer agrees with me on the NFL needing an 'After the career' program.

" People can take pills, run their car off the road, and that's a cry for help. He was crying out for help. Yet he was too proud to ask for it. You can grow up and live your childhood dream and be a hometown hero and then feel, 'Is this all there is?' when it's over. There is no exit strategy from the NFL. "It's: 'You're done.' You don't even get an apple and a road map."

- Former teammate Gary Plummer, says Junior Seau was 'facing demons,' for months.

I am going to agreed with you , Last Sinner

Just like the military, then you are getting out, they give you classes and information about what is on the onside and how to get them like VA benefits (I didn't get mines yet but its coming) and other stuff like that.

NFL should do something like that, so they have the understand that there is a life after football and there is alot of different stuff and beliefs they deserve from play in a sport that actually shorten your life.

Jacksonville WR rookie Blackmon busted for DUI, .24 BAC

Hopefully this isn't another Ryan Leaf-like scenario in the making...

0.24? When I read the report last night, it was 0.15 or 0.18. How'd it go up since then?
