Is that the same one that had some type of legal issue a few years ago. It's always exceptionally sad when parents have to bury their kids.
Same one.
I put a link to this in the **General NFL Discussion Thread**
last page. Didn't want to start a thread on the subject.
Not surprising. Both his sons are some pretty serious drug addicts.

Didn't the packers offensive coordinator, now dolphins head coach lose his son last year too?

I'd be very surprised if that wasn't it.

yes he was in a bar, left late at night and drowned after apparently falling into a river
What a loss. Does it seem odd that so many coaches' kids have this sort of thing happen? Tony Dungy, Joe Philbin, Andy Reid. I wonder, does their success have something to do with this? Have they possibly dedicated so much time to their craft that their family pays a price?

I'm not trying to lay blame or point fingers, I'm just wondering why this seems to happen to NFL coaches at a seemingly-greater rate than that of the larger population.
Are football coaches generally sh*tty parents, or what?

I wrote that in the thread in the PL. I think some of it may have to do with sh*tty parenting.
