Played his best football for Mayo the first time Horan was manager, one of those players that didn't seem to ever full recovery from they injuries he got. Didn't he play corner back instead of full back the year he won his All-Star?

No, he was full back all year in 2012

I've been critical of Ger's performances in the past, but he donned the jersey and did more than I ever did. Best of luck. Who'll be next to go?

I'll be surprised if Keith Higgins and David Clarke stay on for another year.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Caff wouldn’t have quit if he thought he could get fit enough.

Ger Caff just called it a day.

He had  a tough job In a mayo team that played a high line meaning forwards often received the ball in an ocean of space but his timing in the tackle was gifted.
I felt his most natural position would have been corner back. I don't think he had the physical aggression/dirt to be an effective full back, especially when he was left isolated so often.
Good luck to him in his retirement. He always gave 100%.

Poor Ger was a scapegoat over on the Mayo Gaa blog anytime he played and Mayo lost in recent years.

Imagine the abuse he would have got if it was him marking Con O Callaghan a few weeks ago.
