Steve Beuerlein: “You CANNOT do that to your team and your organization at that point, especially when you came out and admitted that you had only been contemplating it for ten days. Injured Reserve would have been the right way to go, to consider all of his options and not to throw that whole organization into chaos. It would have given his teammates hope if they knew he was coming back in the second half. By retiring, he’s eliminating that hope and that belief that they could have made a run to the Super Bowl. The timing of his announcement was not acceptable to do what he did. At some point he’s going to regret this and it will haunt him. I don’t mean it’s going to be a black cloud that follows him around the rest of his life, I just mean at some point he’s going to look back and say ‘I wish I handled that a little bit differently.'” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)
