Has Anderson cleared concussion protocol, yet?  He's like Kolb 2.0.

 

Yes, he was cleared by the end of the season.

It didn't seem that his head hit the turf very hard, to me.

Retired, now?  What, he couldn't wait until halftime of week 2 or something?

I hope he sticks around as a coach.  Once again, we have sophomores, rooks, and journeymen at QB (EJ, Tuel, Thad redux).  BTDTGTTS.

It was the whole rationale for keeping him around in the first place.  Veteran mentor and all.

No, Allen was injured and Peterman was awful. That's why he was brought in...

That's a shame. He'd have helped Allen a lot.

 

I don't think that Barkley is as effective at that role as Anderson was.

Should be fine with Dorsey.

Yes, then Peterman and Anderson were both awful, and we brought in Barkley.

500 and change yards from #3 all-time in rushing yards, and he's going to retire? Do you think that kind of attitude is what got him to #4 all time?

Wow... Slowwwwwwww clap for you, @#34fan

Wow. Emmitt is untouchable! I dont think his record will ever be broken. Even the next four too rushing records seem unlikely to ever be broken! AD and Shady would be next in line, and neither one of them are even close. Beyond that, nobody is even sniffing Frank Gore's jock!

 

Edit to say that AD could conceivably achieve top 5 all time. He is getting close.

Right, but they signed him this year to be the crafty vet.

Easily one of the greatest Bill ever.  I can’t wait to see him get put on the Wall Of Fame.  What a legend.

Very selfish move by Anderson.  He should have never signed his contract extension if he didn't intend on playing.  Obviously there would have been huge problems if he ever sniffed the field, but I still find it to be a selfish move to commit and then back off the commitment.

...first he was a UFA...secondly his one year deal had a $90,000 signing bonus and only $90,000 guaranteed......his vet minimum salary becomes fully guaranteed week one.....so who did he screw and how?.......Jesus, McBeane pays the Rockpile Beerman more than 180 grand...............

It's not about how much money he was scheduled to make or the impact on the team.  It's BS for a guy to make a commitment and then retire.  If he wanted to retire, he should have done so before signing the contract.  Perhaps we could have even looked at bringing another veteran in.

Nothing BS about it. It’s a business.

Of course he's going to say the politically correct thing.  Personally, I wouldn't accept a job and then back out of the job.  I think it speaks to poor character and find it to be a BS move regardless of how it's spun.

The clowns on WGR spent days talking about how great it will be to have Anderson back too.  How misleading.
