    Jets | Chrebet still bothered by headaches
    Fri, 2 Jun 2006 17:50:58 -0700

    Ken Berger, of Newsday, reports retired New York Jets WR Wayne Chrebet said at his retirement news conference Friday, June 2, he still has post-concussion symptoms. "Headaches are a big daily part of my life," he said. "It's been like that for the last couple of years. I don't want to say you get used to it, but you learn to expect it. The risk was certainly worth the reward. You wake up every morning like you have a hangover," he said. "I don't know why that is. I've been told it goes away eventually. I look forward to that day." Perhaps wanting to hold on to the slim hope that he could play again, Chrebet delayed his retirement announcement as long as he could.

    He was a classic example of the Little engine that Could. He gave it his all on every play and was a joy to watch play the game.

    Re: Chrebet retires.

    I myself always enjoyed watching WC play also, he was as stated above, just a good ole grind it out, tough nose reciever, who always seemed to end up where he needed to be and had a pair of sure hands. Not much of a speed demon, but new how to find the open holes and used that to his advanteg......Not fancy, but a good solid reciever...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    I cannot believe he walked on at Hofstra and then started for the Jets as an undrafted rookie.
