    I couldn't imagine a worse way to spend Christmas than the thought of having to bury a child.

    Tony Dungy is probably the nicest, classiest coach in the NFL. How terribly sad.

    very sad.... it puts undefeated seasons playoffs and Super Bowls into perspective.

    Like AudioSlave said... Dungy is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

    Unbelievable. Your thoughts and prayers have to go out to anyone who experiences this, especially during the holidays. You have to wonder if Dungy hadn't seen his son since Thanksgiving, because they live in different states. Just devastating.

    God. I just saw this, and I couldn't help, but feel sick. God forbid something like this happen to anyone, let alone to such a great guy like Tony Dungy. This is a guy that I have respected for such a long time, and is a great coach and person. Once again my thoughts and prayers go out to the Dungy family on this very tragic event.

    I just got an elert from CNN.com that Dungy's teen son has died. I don't know if he was sick or had an accident, but nothing can possibly be worse for a parent. Prayers to the coach and family.:(
