What happened to Mark Rypien?

Postby zr0hero » Thu Nov 10, 2005 8:09 pm

I didnt know where to put this post, so I am putting it here.

Whatever happened to Mark Rypien? I'm looking at his stats here (http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/1064) and it gets a bit weird near the end. According to this, he left in 1997, and came back for one more year in 2001. Anyone know why? Maybe its a mistake on the page, but I doubt it.


Just wondering.

His son died in 1998, and he was out of football for a while.

Cancer, I believe. I think there is a foundation if you are feeling charitable.

Pretty tragic

Wow! That's really sad to hear. I still remember that Super Bowl.

Anyway, call me crazy, but didn't Ryp work in the Rams organization for little bit.

Well, he was their QB for a while, but he didn't really WORK for them. Pa dum pum.

I don't know about "a lotta weight":

He's definitely heavier, but he was never in body-building shape to begin with.

He came back in 2001 and played as a back-up to Peyton Manning, he was there mainly to help be a mentor......

I thought he backed up with the Falcons back in 01, or am I thinking of Steve DeBerg
Bruce has the authority. When Bruce makes the decision, it's a Redskins decision.

DeBerg was with the Falcons in 1998; Rypien was never with the team.

In 2001, the Falcons had Chris Chandler, Mike Vick and Doug Johnson at quarterback.
