    Kyle Boller Has Retired

    Couldn't see if this was posted anywhere else, but the great Kyle Boller has hung up his cleats ... one day after signing with the Chargers. To quote PFT, "[t]he 19th overall pick in the 2003 draft, Boller finishes with a 48:54 touchdown-to-interception ratio and 56.7 completion rate. He went 20-27 in 47 career starts."

    Sources are reporting that old19fan has bought a chain of "Gas-and-Go's", and has proffered Boller with a position as General Manager and TEO (Tactical Executive Officer)....

    Boller. The man. The myth. The legend.

    And he made enough money that his kids kids are set. If he didn't waste it the trailer trash of Hollywood : Paris Hilton, Tara Reid and Lindsay Logan.

    He was never anything more than a white Anthony Wright, no matter how many people hugged his 'nads. Actually he was worse than Wright because at least Wright was just a walk-on, not a wasted 1st round pick.

    As my illustrious title as a Newbie indicates, I haven't been on this forum very much, so I don't know what the general consensus is around here on the Pro Boller, but regardless of our opinions of his on-field performance, I think we should all be able to wish him well. I don't think he would have ever amounted to anything more than an average starter, but he was handled poorly and was thrust into a situation with a ton of pressure and few tools to work with. And yet, he always put up with the bile and the sometimes vindictive press (think Mike Preston) in a classy way, and despite the hilarious gaffes and head-scratching decision-making, you never got the feeling that he'd quit or that he cared any less on his last day as a Raven as he did on his first. Good luck, Kyle. Here's hoping for a good post-football life for a good guy.

    its our fault. boller was set up for failure wiht the ravens. he was drafted in the first round when he was probably a 6th round pick. he had one year in College with a completion percentage over 50% and he compelted 51.7% that year. this is in college where the D[B]'s are 5 yards from the closest receiver.

    THEN WE MADE H[I]M THE STARTER THE F[I]RST YEAR AND GAVE H[I]m TRAV[I]S"[I] DROP EVERY OTHER ball taylor as his wideout.

    boller wasted several great years of defensive efforts in baltimore but i don;t blame him i blame billick the genius.

    We also need to remember that in Boller's first year during the Rams game he was blind-sided and injured, in which I am almost certain NO rookie would overcome such a violent and unsuspecting blow. No wonder he had happy feet the rest of his career. just sayin'

    Boller was likely drafted higher than he should have been, and his resume was obviously a red flag, but blaming Boller for the Ravens not addressing the other issues that they had (see: lack of pass protection) is prejudiced and self-serving.

    Well played Kyle. Pulling the JohnnyU and retiring with the Chargers. He probably signed with them just so he could retire from the NFL as part of a team. Better than just fading away i guess.

    And he rides off into the sunset with a supermodel wife and millions in the bank. He always seemed like a great guy, just not a great QB. Heres to wishing him well.
