    The link isn't working. Truely sad that he left us early. He may be the best that some of us ever see.

    RIP Reggie

    God Bless and God Speed Reverend Reggie. You will surely be missed. Everyone liked Reggie. There was nothing about him to dislike. A great player and a great man.

    RIP Reggie White.

    Reggie was the best linebacker that I have ever seen in the professional ranks. However, his greatest legacy will be the witness that he left about his relationship to Jesus Christ. He not only talked the christian talk- he lived it and devoted his life to serving God. There are very few men who can truely make it big in this world and remain the solid God fearing man as reggie did. May God richly bless and care for reggie's family during their time of morning and grief.

    I don't know too much about the religion aspect of Reggie, but he was one hell of a football player. It's just sad to see anybody die that early in life. From watching TV I can see he had a big impact on a lot of the NFL and will be missed, not so much for his football, but for the man he was.

    Uh, since when was Reggie White a linebacker?

    Wow...I totally didn't even notice that. I think he was just trying to testify about Jesus, and didn't really know much about Reggie as a football player.

    They also said this morning that Reegie hasn't been to church in 4 years.

    He had been learning the Hebrew language to find out who God really was.

    Kind of sounds like a guy who had sadly started to go off of the deep end.

    Learning Hebrew to find out about God isn't such a bad idea though, because isn't that the original language of the bible?

    Reggie White will be missed by me and (i'm sure) many others.

    He lead a short life, though ...

    Thank goodness he lived such a full life.
    It was a life full of joys he enjoyed.
    It was a life full of joys he shared.
    It was a life full of joys he generously gave to all of us.

    The guy did a lot more off the field than he did on... and that says a lot. He did so much for the comminuty around him. He never took credit, he just helped people becuase he could. His attitude, his drive, his personality.... today's athlete could learn from the things that he did.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    My Aunt was a book editor for a pretty big publisher and she worked with Reggie on two books that he wrote about football and his religious life. She spent a lot of time with him and got to know him and his wife pretty well. In addition to what we've all read about Reggie, my Aunt has told me that he really was a fantastic guy and a very caring man. It really sucks to lose one of the good guys....

    I'm a HUGE Packers fan as well- this news really bummed me out.

    :sad:
