    i know im a little late but, its vids like this (horrible player) remind us that the players stock rise and fall we forget they are people playing a kids game. we judge the player not the person. its a fine line but glad to see he has made peace and found a way to cope. but like you said, its his parents, coachs, teachers, friends, family and neighbors who aloud it to happen

    I disagree that he was the poster boy for NFL draft busts. That honor should go to none other than JaMarcus Russell. Leaf played one more season than Russell and JaMarcus's career stats were even worse.

    That's gotta suck. To have to hear about every time Peyton Manning does something that people consider heroic. I really can't relate to that. I don't really have a rival from my teenage years. The closest thing I have is probably my ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend from 8th grade. But once I was done with her, it's not like I was depressed every time I heard one of his life's achievements. They weren't that epic, like hearing about his promotion at Home Depot didn't send me into a psychological downward spiral. What I do know is that I am glad I wasn't in his shoes. Despite the money, he just seemed way too miserable to be envied.

    I’m a lifetime Washington Husky hardcore fan, Washington state is the cross state rival and they play a Good brand of football and get a lot of good players as well. Even tho I’m a husky fan I will say who doesn’t make mistakes? Ryan Leaf was an incredible QB, I’ve seen him play a few times in college, Stud!! He’s had some problems in life but he’s a really good person and has helped a lot of people that the public is unaware of,
    All the best wishes to Ryan and things will be good for him when it’s all said and done. He’s a good dude.

    I dont know how any of these young men 18-22 can handle the pressure of the NFL... Like you said it, Manning was groomed from the beginning. Who you are as a person is all that matters, as athletics are short-lived and relatively unimportant in life.

Nothing like hard work, humility, and common sense to make someone really smart... dude has it. We need more guys like him instead of guys that SOUND smart, but really aren't (Nick Wright, Max Kellerman, and that other guy that was ALWAYS wrong about Tom Brady) .

    Anyone who is quick to judge Leaf, has never been through an opiate detox. After a while (7-10 days) that fear of withdrawal trumps anything & everything.
    You stop needing the pills to get “high,” and start to need them - just to feel “normal.” It’s also a big reason that kids are dying at an alarming rate from heroin overdoses.
    In a recent documentary- they asked a room of 10 Heroin addicts “how many of you started on pain killers?” All 10 raised their hands. It’s been declared an epidemic (by our own government) in 2015-2016 too. But when he was using them in 2004, people didn’t have the same awareness or help available as they do now. Only in recent years has the view of opiates changed & I’m glad it has for the better.
    I’m not making excuses for Leaf’s actions & don’t condone what he’s done - but I do give him props for having gone thru what he has & becoming a better person as a result.
    Much love & respect to Flemlo for his delivery of the story and subject matter. Appreciate you brother & keep up the great work! Wishing Leaf (and everyone else) nothing but the best & be well! ✌️
