    Noticeably, you are making lots of 4 to 5 word replies Xeon, nothing wrong about it, but it's noticeable and familiar pattern.

    Ex-NFL player Ken Stabler selected for Football Hall of Fame, Finally


    The other quarterback in the class, Stabler, led the Oakland Raiders to Super Bowl glory in 1977. There was also some mixed emotion in the news.

    He died in July from cancer, but it was announced on Wednesday by researchers at Boston University that Stabler suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. CTE is a progressive degenerative brain disease that can manifest in depression, disorientation and aggression. Scientists believe repeated head trauma causes CTE. It's only diagnosable post-mortem.

    Stabler's grandsons, Justin and Jack Moyes, represented the quarterback at the NFL Honors night. Justin Moyes said the family "could see it in his everyday life that something was wrong."
