    I see that Sal Paolantonio is doing the pre and post game analysis for MNF with Steve Young and the Escape Goat... what happened to Stu? They said they missed him and looked forward to his return. Anyone know what's up?

    I think he emergency apendectomy or something of that nature. I recall it being mention oh so ever breifly on either the radio or tv when someone said get well soon. Do not ask when or link because I do not have one.

    The reason I said it like this was not at you but because I know it should be put with links when talking about a report and or something that had happened, but I do not have one and did not want to be attacked for not posting a link.

    I'm not being crude...but is there any reason for the eye thing on Stuart?I never noticed it when he started on ESPN, then it was there. God Bless if it is a condition that is bad or something. I really just never asked.

    I know he got hit in the eye with the nose of a football at a Jets training camp sometime around 2000 and he had to have corneal surgery. That may be what it stems from.

    Thanks, I never paid attention or heard anything. I didn't know if it was a condition or not.

    Wow!! As a commentator I can take him or leave him, but this is sad. Prayers to him and his family, but it sounds like he will be fine.

    That's crazy, I don't dislike or like Stuart, but I'm glad that he's recovering well.

    Wow, that's quite a shock...I'm surprised it was never mentioned on air, unless he requested it not to be. Glad to hear he is recovering.

    Ya know, they never really addressed it on air as you said, but I have heard some of the guys throw out "get back soon buddy" and things like that.

    That was all I heard, I do recall the mentioning of the appendix but not the cancer.

    Any updates on his chemo? The Mrs. commented he didn't look so good on air today.

    Can't help but like the guy. He said he was asked if he would trade lives with Tom Brady, and he answered no, because he wouldn't have his two girls. He jokingly added, he would take Tom's money.
