Greatest Jaguars QB Mark Brunell to Retire

Even growing up as a Niners fan I loved watching this guy play. Another down to earthy guy with good character with class that is quickly disappearing in the NFL.

Good luck Mark!

no kidding...wasn't he just on HBO for blowing over $50-million and having to file Chapter 11? i thought because he was a gringo that he would be much smarter with his $ - looks like Wal-Mart check out boy in his future

I agree, although I always thought of him as the poor mans Steve Young back in his prime, still he was a solid qb for jags.
No I hate all quarterbacks that are number 8 and that are left handed that aren't named Steve Young. That 99 opener still haunts me.

nailed it!

Seemed like a good guy though and he was pretty tough. I liked him.

Gotta admit I had no idea he was still in the league though.

It's not like he spent all his money on Lambos for his posse and making it rain at strip bars.

He made a few bad investments in businesses and lost his arse in the real estate market like a lot of Americans did.

Brunell, credited with assisting in the development of Sanchez, told the court he plans to be employed as an entry level sales representative for a company in the medical device industry, according to an affidavit. Leon Fowler, the vice president of the company, says he will pay Brunell $60,000 per year.

Man of man that guy is going to have to make some serious adjustments to his lifestyle...
I didn't know he was still in the league
"It's not like he spent all his money on Lambos for his posse and making it rain at strip bars. He made a few bad investments in businesses and lost his arse in the real estate market like a lot of Americans did."

I agree, however, rich people making huge, potentially risking investments WHEN THEY'RE ALREADY RICH is unnecessarily absurd.

Yes, he isn't Mike Tyson, Allen Iverson, or MC Hammer (see a common thread?), but it's still laughable.
