    Re: Former Bear Dave Duerson Found Dead

    Sad to hear about that. Duerson was such a big part of one of the NFL's most feared defenses. I thought he would have been older than 50, but 85 was his rookie year.

    Honestly I had no recollection of him being a part of the 1990 Giants SB winning team. I would assume he was a back-up/role player on that squad, because I don't remember him playing in SB 25. Still 2 SB rings is a nice career.

    Re: Former Bear Dave Duerson Found Dead

    Very sad indeed. He was one of my favorite players to watch.

    Dave Duerson committed suicide

    "Former Chicago Bears player Dave Duerson died from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner. 

His death has been ruled a suicide.
    In a text message to loved ones, Duerson asked that his brain be left for NFL research, emphasizing he wanted the "left side" checked out in particular. 

    Chris Nowinski, co-director of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University School of Medicine, received a call from a friend of the Duerson family Thursday night. He made arrangements to have the brain prepped in time for research and sent to Boston University.
