    Man, this has been a bad weekend for the NFL. Tomlinson family members, now Damien Nash. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and all the Bronco fans everywhere. Tragic.

    Only 24 years old, how terrible for him and his family and the team.

    I wonder what happened? Most sudden deaths at this age are cardiac in nature due to an abnormal heart beat (for various reasons) or undiagnosed heart problems.

    All these deaths lately with the sports figures and their families and Anna Nicole (and her young son) are sobering...you have to appreciate life every single day.

    The article said he had been playing in a charity basketball game that funded heart transplants as his brother had one last month.

    Really sad. He had his whole life and career in front of him.

    Yes, probably cardiac in nature. Damien has a brother who just received a heart transplant.

    Very sad. Damien was a class guy. Denver's situation is starting to remind me of the 90's when we lost David Griggs and Rodney Culver in successive offseasons.

    My guess is that the poor kid had some sort of hereditary cardiac problem or a congenital heart malformation that went undiagnosed..........that's usually what causes sudden death in young athletes.

    Unfortunately, it's hard to catch these things because the first, last, and only symptom is collapse and death. :no: They usually find it on autopsy; you'd think with all the physical exams athletes go through that a doctor would be able to find and treat these problems BEFORE they kill, but that's not the way it goes most of the time.

    How sad for all concerned.:icon_sad:

    Only question if Shanahan in making deals with the devil had this happen
    1. when does he become the ghost rider
    2. what happens when Eli manning's deal is due?

    As much as I despise the Broncos I can't bring myself to make light of this. And I must also echo bigmike's assement that this offseason has been truely brutal for the NFL. I can't remember this much drama in any entire offseason, and we're only like a month in...
