He's had several neck/back surgeries lately, so maybe not ill, just recovering.

Goody. Another reason for him to clutter the local media and eventually beg for money.

Pretty cynical of you.  Here's to good health for Jim Kelly.

Wouldn't it be pretty crazy if we were all waiting for Ralph to die so Jim could buy and takeover the team and Jim died first?

Ok, don't flame me too bad, it was only a joke.

Not sure what this could be because he was on stage at Darien Lake during a Tim McGraw concert 3 days ago throwing out autographed footballs (a friend of mine got one).

He was on SiriusXM NFL about a month ago and sounded like he was in good spirits and energetic. He said he had had 3 major surgies recently, so hopefully just recovering.

That could be it then, hope he gets a lot better soon.

any number of things could be serious without being immediately debilitating him. who knows - could be something simple too.

yeah. I've got plenty of warnings in my Time here. That's why I finished with saying I'm just joking.

Back to the topic at hand, hopefully Jim will feel better soon and have a speedy recovery from his surgeries.

He did have major dental surgery a couple of months ago for a cyst in his mouth. He was scheduled to be the guest speaker at an FCA event here in my town in March shortly after the procedure and he wasn't sure if he would be here due to the discomfort recovering from the surgery. He did honor his commitment and didn't sound too bad, just talking a tad slower.

Starting to think it could be a drinking issue.

I always thought that.  I hadn't seen a picture of Jim Kelly in a long time until he was there for the EJ Manuel signing.  I thought he looked a lot older - I almost didn't recognize him.

So, if you don't see a picture of somebody in a long time, you're surprised that they look older??
