    Finding out have a rare disease is bad enough. When it’s named after dead Frenchmen and hyphenated, well…………

    My mother-in-law had that. Didn’t kill her. He’ll be fine, I’m sure.

    Nasty disease causes paralysis usually starting in the legs and arms and moving to your chest until you end up on a ventilator because your diaphragm and chest wall become paralyzed.

    Prayer to Danny and the family

    He always did seem “nervous” in the pocket and was a “system” quarterback, so makes sense.
