I do think there were many contributing factors that led Seau and Duerson to make the decisions they made.
The reality is doctors do not have a complete picture of how the brain functions; injured or uninjured. If being out of the spotlight is considered to be a better driving factor, then why don't we see more pro athletes (from other sports), actors, or musicians commit suicide more? I do think trauma to the brain, whether through physical contact or chemically related (i.e. drug abuse, chemical imbalance in the body), can lead to impairred judgment, emotional instability, and a host of other problems. Until science has completely figured out the brain and humans are using more than just 10% of it, then we may never fully know and/or understand how things truly interrelated with each other.
