    If you get NFL Network check your listings for their "A Football Life" about Reggie and Jerome Brown. It's been a long time since Reggie passed away. And I just couldn't go to sleep tonight when I started watching the show by accident. In it, Reggie mentions that if he is only remembered as a football player after he's gone that he failed. You didn't fail Reggie. Not even close. Go Pack!

    Always kind of wonder if Reggie was on the Juice and that led to his early demise. <Flame suit..ON!!>

    Wish I could have watched it.

    There will never be another Reggie, and I don't care if his records are ever broken, to me he was the best defensive end ever.

    He is the heart and soul of football for me and he always will be so. He's so much more than just a football player. I can't say much without getting too emoti0nal. He was taken far too soon but as they say, Heaven only takes the best.

    Great show. I forgot how good and dominant Jerome Brown was for his short career.

    Uh, it's not like he died totally without explanation. He had some kind of heart and lung disorder called sarcoidosis, he had sleep apnea, he was abnormally large and overweight, and he died from a cardiac arrhythmia. Among football players who died far too young, we know quite a bit about the conditions he had which may have contributed to it.
