Sam Mills passes away
 
So sad, one of my alltime favorites:

Sam Mills, the Carolina Panthers linebackers coach and one of the best players in franchise history, has lost his lengthy battle with intestinal cancer.

Mills, 45, died Monday, according to National Football League sources.

Mills was diagnosed in August 2003. At first doctors, told him he had only several months to live. But Mills battled the disease bravely. He underwent chemotherapy and radiation, but continued coaching.

He was an inspirational force to the Panthers’ run to Super Bowl XXXVIII, delivering an emotional speech to the team before a playoff victory. Mills continued coaching through the 2004 season, but took a turn for the worst in recent weeks.

Didn't post the link, it was a sign up to read deal.

I\'m going to observe a moment of silence.

It is one of those deaths that makes me wonder what I\'ve really done with my life. Sam wasn\'t much older than me, and he had already had quite a career and was well in to a second (coaching). Perhaps I\'m feeling overly melancholy today, but that hit me a bit.

Condolences to his family and close ones.

A terrible loss to all of football -- what a classy guy on and off the field. But hey Sam -- say hello to Buddy and have a beer for us.
