Somebody's got to have Marvin Lewis in a straight jacket. Surely he's chomping (champing?) at the bit right now.

They threw Krispy Kremes at him. He had to stop to pick them up after he dropped them.

Brain condition, seems to be the flavor of the decade when someone f-cks up. That excuse is seriously getting played out. Look hard enough and most people have brain conditions of some sort.

In the court filing, The Press-Enterprise reported, Maldonado claims that Young often would begin inexplicably talking to himself and would go on walks without returning home. She also accuses Young of taking their son to San Diego without telling her, which led her to file a missing persons report.

Classic finding specifically in schizophrenia.......a condition where a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined........a psychotic condition that cannot be cured, and can seldom be controlled with meds or counseling for all but shorter periods of time...........especially since they are not able to understand the concept of their ongoing need for treatment.

Whoever chooses to take him on will likely waste 90% of team attention and effort in trying to constantly keep a still questionable NFL talent in line.

Can the quasi-structure of football help??
When that is taken away - has been taken away - will the psychological issues take over...??

The problem is that "quasi-structured football" vs. outside of football are are still both "realities".............something that schizophrenics have virtually no ability to adjust to.

The utter confusion about this story, in some ways, can be symbolized by a conversation Young's father told the Detroit News he had with his son, not long before he would be on the run from police. Father and son were talking while Titus lay on the bed, and while crying, made a confession.

"Daddy, I don't know what's going on with me. I don't feel good. I just don't feel good. I'm not myself, I don't feel good, Dad. I don't know what's happening to me."
Quote:
Richard says his son was prescribed Seroquel, an antipsychotic drug used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but Young stopped using it.
Quote:
What exactly happened with Young? Did his brain go haywire or is Young simply a criminal? Did a violent hit, or series of them, start Young's slide, or was he mentally ill before that, and the slide was inevitable, no matter what happened on the field?

Dr. Ben Wedro, a physician who writes frequently about sports medical issues, says Young's apparent mental issues likely begins somewhere in the frontal lobe of his brain. This part of the mind helps decide between right and wrong.

"Is Mr. Young's change in behavior due to a concussion involving the frontal lobes or is he developing a thought disorder?" Wedro said. "Patients with a frontal lobe concussion may become impulsive and become emotionally withdrawn. There can be aggression, outbursts of rage, and violent behavior and the ability to understand the difference between good and bad may be lost.

"Patients with psychosis, like schizophrenia, often present in their late teens and twenties and the symptoms may involve hallucinations, delusions and thought disorganization. Deciding between the diagnoses may be difficult, especially if the history of being hit in the head is not appreciated."

Wedro's main point is key: The brain remains a great mystery. Complicating matters is the violence of football. Its long-term effects on the brain are understood even less. Scientists now just understand the brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. It's caused by repeated blows to the head, and scientists estimate that by the time a typical football player leaves college, he's experienced some 8,000 blows to the head.
