My guy #88 going to hang it up after the season. Presser this afternoon. Honestly, he hasn't been very good for a while. Add in that he is newly married and had the concussion scare maybe he is right to get out. I am sure a long TV career awaits if he wants it or he could take over the one team from his step mom or something.

He's been driving for so long that he probably just hit the proverbial wall.

There are bold drivers and old drivers, but few old, bold drivers

He's pulling a Jay Cutler

He has a hot wife and he knows she will leave him if he gets seriously hurt playing a game.

He has a shitload of money too. And, he's not his dad.

No doubt. He is set for life. No need to risk any more of his life.

He had a pretty good career considering everything he had to endure.

He was not even close to as a good of a driver as his dad, but he is also better than some others give him credit for.

I think they were.

He seemed to be a hard man to know. But they weren't estranged.

From everything I have seen and read I think they were as close as anyone could be to Dale Sr. He was probably closer to Dale Jr and the daughter than anyone else.

The family called that ESPN movie drama bullshit.

Watching it, that seemed about right.
