Police say that his death stemmed from a possible medical issue. May he Rest In Peace. One of the all time great Bronco’s to watch with Peyton Manning. Sad!

Really sad here in Colorado. :( One of the Broncos best WRs of all time. Helped Peyton Manning win a SB. Was famous for the catch from Tebow that won a playoff game Vs the Steelers, and also got Peyton Manning's record 55th TD catch. Great human being as well. Going to miss him. :(

That's what I didn't understand. "Possible medical issue, nothing suspicious" The man was 33 and just finished a 10 year NFL career, what "non suspicious" medical issue could he have that lets him play in the NFL but dies at home at 33?? RIP Manning's favorite target..

My thought exactly when I read the article earlier. The word "possible" makes it sound suspicious. 

 

It is sad when hearing someone so young has died. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his family, friends, and fans.

I would veer to conspiracy theories so soon.

I had a neighbor down the street, Kevin, valedictorian in High School, going to Rose Hulman for Engineering, took medications for seizures, he was found dead on his couch with his laptop on his lap. Took care of his lawn while his parents were arranging for his viewing and funeral. He beat me in a final championship game in our neighborhood fantasy league organized by another neighbor. This one really reminds me of Kevin, he had a bright future ahead of him. So sad when they go young. :(

Since he was found, and not with others around, they use the word possible until confirmed. 

 

I had a friend who died last year, and as it was an officer, his death got reported in paper and they said possible medical emergency. Not until autopsy did it get confirmed, and he was just 22. It is such a terrible thing, but they also dont want to say exactly the case until it is confirm

Sorry to hear. I was going to write that it may have been caused by a brain aneurysm or a seizure, but there are many people with seizures and I did not want to alarm anyone.  Seizure disorders are a lot more common than most realize, but most are well controlled with medication. 

 

Last summer and the summer before, I wrote that I was rooting for Alan Faneca to make the HoF, as he played his whole career with a seizure disorder. 

 

This is very sad to hear. To have a seizure while showering and to die. Hopefully he did not suffer, as he was probably unconscious. Rest in peace.

Very sad.   Everyone says he was a good kid.   But Marvin was his favorite target

    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
    • I know it gets very old with a few around here. I have never said Matt Ryan is the GOAT. Some people in here are getting ridiculous and can't even be happy with a win.
    • Not really, you said that the Jaguars were a bottom 5 team, that is way wrong. They are 13th in the ESPN power rankings. You said we lost to the Texans, we tied which isn't a loss. How am I spinning things?
    • Smith is on skates immediately. Likely Ryan saw it, and didn't keep eyes down field.  Woods was open (early, not later), and Campbell wide open deeper. If Smith didn't go full skate, likely a big gain with Parris. 
    • Cherry picked, but OK.  No discussion blocking scheme? Play1 D knew exactly what was coming...  don't run vs load boxes... 8 on DL, and S shallow why no power/man blocking... instead zone block + pullx2... sorry, just stop cute/finesse. go power run blocking. Kelly got handled, pushed back. Kept from TE (2nd puller) going over.  Pryor and Nelson fine. Nelson great, but pushed like Kelly.  Overall, bad call. Bad block scheme. Bad Ryan Kelly... . Owens talking scheme and coaching... and don't expect "push" if not in power/man blocking Play2 D knew exactly what was coming 7 tight in box, shallow S. Middle was a D party. Slow play...  JT should have gone left LG/LT, or over LT, not C/RG hole. Pryor doing well.  Sure Mo shouldn't go low, but no any hole anyway, and 23 was going to clean up regardless and unaccounted for. And safety accounted in center position too...  Mo likely isn't to meant to create a LG/C hole... lol...  Too much cute again, and too slow..  Play3 bad left placement by Pryor. Great wide bend by Allen still likely 2.5+, still bad by Pryor Play4 Owen... nah... Nelson is committed, and so is Ryan It's neither's fault. (from a pure blocking perspective). Great stunt call vs protection call. That's D coach call > whoever called OL protection (Ryan Kelly?)... Play5 Another good stunt call But Raimann got beat twice in the same play... Had he got into the first guy, Nelson could have dropped to take the stunt. But Raimann lost first one, and then Nelson had to help. Then didn't peal off to take stunt.  Likely a call specifically vs rook Raimann.  Matt could have rolled right though. In game 1, when Raimann was in, Matt rolled right every time.  Play6 Yes, Pinter did his job. But his initial guy went Kelly's middle/ other-side quickly, regardless. He didn't need to help. Very different than other stunts.
