    No doubt a great FB player and an even better person, too bad.
    And just for the record, I ain't buying that sleep apnea stuff either. No one dies from that, not at 43.

    13 straight all-pro seasons if I'm not mistaken. He was a nice and well-meaning guy, but do any of you guys remember his little speech a few years back when he was talking about what things certain races were adept at? He pretty much became anointed as a caveman that day.

    The Minister of Defense- May he rest in peace. A great man on and off the field. He made a movie- "Reggie's Prayer" in the 90's that included Brett Farve and Mike Holmgren in the cast as a father-son janitor team that had a special play- very funny. But this man will be missed- I hope there is a presentation or memorial show for him. Go Pack.

    Yeah. First class guy. One of the better ball players. Heard massive heart attack was the cause. I've known that to happen to a 14 year old. Docs are still scratching their heads.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I would buy the heart attack thing, that was my first thought. All these big guys have life expectancies well short of the norm.
    Then his wife comes out with this sleep apnea stuff and says she expects everyone to respect their privacy?
    I dunno, something weird there.
    He had quit going to his church and was studying Judaism.
    Is Ricky Williams related to him?

    After my heart attack in 03, my cardio doctor told me that I had 3 basic causes for the attack: #1 was smoking, #2 was undiagnosed sleep apnea, and #3 was stress related high blood pressure.

    I didn't buy into the sleep apnea crap. To satisfy the wife I went thru the procedure to diagnose and set up the machine for sleep apnea. Even then I didn't buy into it.

    The wife was tired of my snoring and convinced me to try the machine. I now have twice the energy I used to, and have reduced my blood pressure medicine in half. My memory is better than it's been in years. On my last visit, the doctor shared with me that the newest group of people diagnosed with sleep apnea is children that were previously mis-diagnosed with ADD. They have been able to help a great many children by getting them on the machine and off Ridalin.

    They had to convince me while I was kickin and screamin but, I'm convinced. There is something to this sleep apnea.

    Yes, it makes you wander. Heart is a muscle. If biceps grows to big, there is no problem. If heart gets to big, it has not enough room in chest cavity. This is only a speculation. There is no doubt that he was a great man and an athlete.
