The best time to kick a man is when he is down--Curt Hennig.

He threw like 40 picks one year. Now that's a man.

That man was a competitor !

RIP George, too classy of a guy to play for a stinker like Oakland.

When I was 9 I wished he would die.

Now I feel guilty for that.

I prefer to think of him as a Houston Oiler. Makes it go down better.

RIP, George.

Sorry, I don't feel much loss for this. Sad for his family, but otherwise....
I'll probably feel the same way when Horseface kicks the bucket too.
