Re: Fairley has possible career ending heart condition

We are all praying for him. Some of us have different reasons to hope for a healthy return than others. My first thought was about the production not the player and I still feel slightly guilty......but I love my Saints so much that I get selfish at times.

That's a real shame, but he's got to think of his health first.

Just as we start to build a decent D line too.

Good friend of mine and someone I do business with, son of a former Saints, still in NFL family, tells me prognosis is negative for a return to football...

Wasn't a big fan of the extension, see earlier post(s), but gotta tell you, I feel real sick to my stomach for Fairley right now...

Re: Fairley has possible career ending heart condition

He seemed to finally hit his niche so it has to be crushing to be that good of a player knowing you were about to go into another season playing a game you love. Glad he's focusing on his health though. Any chance we kick the tires on Vince Wilfork?

Re: Fairley has possible career ending heart condition

A third opinion? Oh boy ... Nick is a competitor, beast like in his approach on the field but damn this is his overall health. If Doctors/Specialist are advising him to cease all football activity, I think it's time to strongly consider retirement and the next chapter in his life. I know Nick is probably crushed with the thought of not playing anymore but we are talking about the human heart (see Hank Gathers), not a torn ACL or forearm.

I'm praying for you sir .
