Happy Absence

Guard Chris Snee's absence at practice today wasn't because he incurred any swelling in his knee. He had permission. It would have been news if he didn't, as his reason for skipping practice was to attend the birth of his father-in-law, Tom Coughlin's, 10th grandchild. The child is Snee's third.

Meanwhile, Sinorice Moss was getting his second opinion on his groin/pelvic/abdominal injury in Philadelphia. No update on him yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the parties come to an injury settlement if the injury is deemed serious enough. As it is, Moss is hanging onto a roster spot by a thread.



  1. I will bet any amt these 2 are divorced by the time he is done with his career.

  2. With the divorce rate over 50% you could just play the odds and get that one right.

    Can we sign his kid at LT now? I'll take a 1 day old Snee spawn over the mess from the other night....

  3. Times did an article on this a year ago.

    Short version:

    "Polls, studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that the divorce rate for N.F.L. players is between 60 and 80 percent, which is higher than that of the general population, where nearly half of marriages end in divorce, but comparable to athletes in other sports."

  4. Those of us men that live in or near metropolitan/cultural centers are probably not "ready" to be married until we're 30. Let's be honest. We're morons until we're 30. We're fun morons, but we're morons in our 20s.

    Pro athletes are young. They're rich and they're young, and a good percentage of them were raised in dubious family circumstances themselves. Recipe for marital failure in most cases.

  5. Moss, heard you were a nice guy, but can you just stay in Philly? You can be an Eagle. I know you can, go for it.
