Chris Borland of the San Francisco 49ers announced his retirement from the NFL after just his rookie season.  The 24 year old cited concerns over long-term head injuries as his reason to walk away from the game.  Reaction has poured in throughout the sports community.

Former Penn State & New York Jets LB Greg Buttle is a former co-host of mine.  He currently does New York Jets Pre-Season games on WCBS-TV & Pre/Post-Game on the New York Jets Radio Network.  Greg always has an opinion & this podcast is no different.

I'm a huge proponent of better safety for football players, and there is a good debate on the future of the NFL on this podcast.
