    The greed and insecurity of coaches and owners have ruined another promising career.

    Reminds me of Greg Cook, who, in the midst of an exciting rookie season, tore up his shoulder. He came back in a few weeks. His play suffered so badly he retired after the season.

    This was in 1969.

    The 16-ton weight was actually a gimmick employed by the Monty Python crew to end a skit that wasn’t going anywhere.

    now now now, the kid is in his early twenties and as they used to say in Brooklyn,
    ‘wait ’til next year!’

    I remember Greg Cook of the Bengals. I was just becoming a football fan back then (I was 10), but he was a really good-looking quarterback, from what I could tell. I also remember the injury and it ruined him. Let’s hope RGIII doesn’t suffer a similar fate, but Shanahan is leaning on him the way Paul Brown leaned on Cook.

    Shanahan sucks, always has.

    I remember Greg Cook, Bengals! That brings back memories…and you’re right, he was a very good QB. It was a shame what happened. Bert Jones of the B-Colts was another one who had an injury cut short his career!
