Are You F-ing Serious?

Today the Buffalo Bills’ Vontae Davis announced his retirement. Not following the teams 31-20 loss to the Chargers, during halftime of the game. He pulled himself out of the game in the 2nd quarter with his team trailing 28-6 and quit. He literally walked out on his team when they needed him. He stated in his announcement that he does not feel like himself and questioned if it is still worth him sacrificing.  

I would like to point out that he decided to sign a one-year contract with the Bills during the offseason. He decided to show up for training camp. He decided to remain with the team while other players were being cut. He decided to play during week 1 and he decided to show up for today’s game. 

I know that players retire for a multitude of reasons, and every one of them are valid. My problem is that he quit during halftime. He could have easily finished the game, even if he didn’t play, he could have remained on the sideline with his team. He could have made the announcement to his teammates following the game but instead he walks out during the halftime show.
