What should you call any : Fumble , Hold , Interception , Three and out , or Sack ?
A " F.H.I.T.S " ? or a J'Marcus ?
Also, and soulman will back me up on this Benji, Bipolar Disorder patients who are presently in the manic mood cycle can show signs of suicidal tendencies. It's strange, I know, but it's absolutely true.
I am not doubting that. That was nothing I said did not exist.

Divorce, losing my little girl that I so loved so much.
But, I never really contemplated suicide. If I have been THAT depressed at times, I can't even imagine the depth of depression that one would have to be to commit suicide. That's just not only very sad...but also very scary. I hope I don't ever find myself there...or anyone I love.
It's the asshole that takes their life through stupid shit that I don't feel bad for...i.e. Drug Overdoses.
Ala, Elvis Pressely, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrision, Kurt Cobain....etc.
I do respect their talents, and their amazing contribution to the world. But I have absolute no sympathy.
But, in the case of those like Dave Duerson.....that's a completely different ball game. I feel very sad for our loss, and his families loss, and very much so for the horrible state of mind he must have been existing in.
R.I.P DD ......... May your soul now ~ RIDE IN PEACE ~

I was gonna hit on the drug overdose/suicide angle, but you covered it nicely.
Bears board article posted NY Times report that he texted family asking to have brain examined for CTE. I think he suspected it. No big deal though. What ever his bottom line reasons were they died with him.

Reason: additional info
I have been to the point of planning my own suicide before, Guitarzan. It's not a fun feeling. At the time, I didn't believe life could get any worse, and then I got to where I was writing in journals and in poetry my plans to kills myself via way of carbon monoxide poisoning. I have been hospitalized three times, once where I had to actually stay on a psychiatric ward because of that very incident, and another time when I became so enthralled by the idea of cutting myself with knives that I was nearly put on the ward before I begged and pleaded not to be left at the hospital.
