Goodbye to Reggie :(


I don't know how many people here are football fans but almost everyone should know the name Reggie White. He was the greatest defensive tackle to ever play the game. He brought the superbowl back to Greenbay and changed history with a prominent black player signing in a small midwest market where no one really wanted to play. To this I say THANK YOU REGGIE! He will be in the hall of fame in the next year or so and now he rests in heaven. God bless Reggie White.

He was a great player and a great person as well, he did a lot for kids programs and the community. More of them Pro's should take a page from his life and follow his example.

Reggie White was indeed one of those players that you just couldn't hate. He was the real deal. Positive mentality and leading by example was a skill Reggie possessed. This all coming from a Bears fan. Not a Green Bay Fan at All (Packers/Bears is a rival), but you still couldn't not like reggie. When reggie sac'd your QB, you were glad it was atleast Reggie doing it, and not some thug that didn't respect.. That man worked hard on and off the field and was a rollmodel to so many. I remember when I used to watch Inside the NFL after watching the packers walk all over the bears, lol. Reggie White always had a group of players that were in with his vibe in the locker room. He always had prayer circles, paid respect to the opposing defeated team, and then complemented his team. I always liked it when Reggie White was Mic'd. He was even a standup guy when he played the game on the field. Everyone liked/loved Reggie White. A great man will truly be missed. What was the joke there for awhile, every Starting QB that has played Reggie white has been sacked by Reggie White? Heh..

Sure you could. He played for the Eagles. NYG fans never liked him! Now, that is as a player, not a man.

Purposely lost? I don't think he did that, but can you blame him for pulling his starters so they had no chance of injury? They have everything wrapped up so this game didn't have any real meaning for them. But I'm sure the Seahawks didn't like it too much!!
