    Do you think money makes problems go away? Also, can you point me towards to message boards and media outlets that question your character when you perform poorly at your job? It’s simplistic to say “because so and so makes X amount of dollars and does a job that entertains me, that person should just ‘get over it.’”

    Therapy has a negative connotation to it. I think you'll find most people probably feel uneasy making their therapy public knowledge.

    And it's even sadder when another collection of people who come to a message board to talk out of their gluteus maximus can't seem to comprehend that players tell open ended lies all the time when they sense there is a shift in public opinion about a team, player, or situation.

    "It's not about the money."
    "Some things just didn't work out"
    "He is a great player who does alot of things well."
    "I needed to seek mental help."

    (translated)

    1. That GM was trying to undercut my value and was definitely not offering enough money.
    2. They stepped on my toes/I stepped on their toes pretty bad - or I cannot stand to work for such an incompetent organization.
    3. This dude can't read a COVER 3 for sh-- and that's how we're going to beat him.
    4. The fan base hates me right now super bad -- so I claimed this, because if I went into this interview saying I got over it quick, they would try to crucify me.)

    you clearly have a pitifully low bar for humor

    you probably need to take a few deep breaths after that amount of humor

    I am... worthless nonsense

    It had nothing to do with THIS particular press conference. And certainly not the fact that he talked about therapy in general. It’s just the latest example of his attitude in interviews, or lack thereof, since the playoff loss. My only point is his entire behavior and demeanor has been odd and hard to read since the start of last season. And yesterday was just, weird. It was a weird thing to say.

    Y'all are all missing the part where Tannehill was already in therapy. No amount of money helps mental health. I'd say it probably has the opposite effect for people in the spotlight who make big money... Many many celebrities/entertainers have mental health problems. They are human beings just like the rest of us yet they have to put up with a lot more **** than most.

    Tannehill didn't seek therapy because he lost in a football game. He confided in his normal therapist about a football game he felt was causing mental distress.

    For people who are super competetive, train year round and make it their life goal to win a Superbowl it's probably pretty tough coping with a tough loss in a big game. Especially when you know you don't get many shots at it.

    It's his job to play football and win and he makes a ton of money to do so, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have feelings or problems.

    You could’ve omitted the entire post besides the last sentence and still gotten your message across. Also, no one is saying Tannehill doesn’t or shouldn’t have feelings.
