    He was sort of a future pick like the Staubach pick.

    Those were days when we still lead the league in innovation and benefited over other team unable to be proactive.

    We don't do that anymore.

    Jerrah has lost that edge.

    Something like 1500 push ups, 3000 sit ups, and several miles jogging every day. Said he didn't do any other kind of off season training during his football days.

    He's one hell of an all around athlete in the Deion Sanders, Bo Jackson, Danny Ainge sphere (yes, that Danny Ainge who played pro baseball and was on the HoF 1980s Celtics team).

    In addition to some stellar achievements in football, Walker was, as stated, Olympic level sprinter. He even beat Carl Lewis once in training or friendly race, but I don't recall the details.

    There was also this all around athletics competition back then that pitted athletes from different sports in things like bowling, tennis, basketball, and a bunch of other events. Walker won it at least once. Then there's the bob sledding and MMA fighting late in life. The guy is a beast of an athlete.

    I had seen an interview on youtube or somewhere last year where he was talking about his disorder and it was really complex how he described developing different personalities and that their were gaps that he didn't remember which made me think he had some concussion issues also that they just explained the best way they could at the time(whole nother can of worms) but he's probably the first person I ever heard talk about multiple personalities and I wasn't skeptical at all. Theres just nothing shady about him and a work ethic thats in the Jerry Rice range.
