For those of you who follow NFL football at all, Tony Dungy is the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. His 18 year old son was found dead in a Tampa area apartment just recently...

This is so sad. I just can't believe it happened so suddenly. It makes you think to enjoy every minute of everyday. You just never know what is going to happen. Tony Dungy just landed at noon here. I am sure he is devastated. He has always been a family man, and done a lot for the Tampa Bay area even after he left the Bucs.

Yeah, I have always liked Dungy. He not only does the things mentioned in your post Boombotz, but he is a damn fine coach too. I believe he will be out for Saturday's game against Seattle, maybe even longer. But because of the type of person he is, he will likely get back to coaching before too soon...

It may sound weird, but after such a tragic loss like that, people are best suited to get back into their normal routine so as to not let things get the best of them.

It depends on how he takes this tragedy. Hopefully it won't completely devastate him but that is not out of the question. There are so many variables, you never know what the breaking point is for any given individual. I can't think of anything more tragic than loosing my child other than loosing my entire family.

He needs prayerful support at this time.

My prayers go out to the Dungy family. It saddens me to hear of someone losing a family member especially during this time when family closeness is a central theme. I would never want to experience such a thing. Parents always hope that the children will live longer than themselves and I can only imagine how hurt they are right now.

they are thinking suicide now. on his myspace site he said that "I cant talk to no one any more" or something to that affect. i hope that is not it and will wait for the autopsy (sp?)... terrible thing, as said before, he needs prayer.
