Seriously, I read in the paper that something like 25+ ex Steelers have died in some rediculous time frame, like the past 10 years or something. Not to my surprise, most of them were linemen, DT's, etc...no recievers, safetys, or corners. Now I bring this here because it does correlate with health and fitness. What are your takes? I think many of those in defensive positions requiring you to be rediculously massive and strong are hurting these guys so bad in the long run. Also not to surprise, majority of deaths were cardiac or stroke related..like 90% of the list..the rest were freak accidents or cancer of the colon, etc. As a health and sports enthusiast it makes me think. My guess is that all that hard training with that body mass tears one up after decades. Keep in mind your avg. lineman i would say is 230+..I may be wrong. The more 'athletic' positions like WR, RB, Safety dont seem to die as fast as the big boys. Sucks and it is sad, but definately makes me wonder. Oh and +1 for AZ. in the SB.
