One of the best.

Eight San Diego Chargers from the 1994 have died before reaching 45. That's incredibly sad.

  1. Shawn Lee died last year of a heart attack at 44
  2. Chris Mims died in 2008 of complications from having an enlarged heart at age 38.
  3. Curtis Whitley died in 2008 of a drug overdose at age 39.
  4. Doug Miller died in 1998 after he was struck by lightning, at age 28.
  5. Rodney Culver died in 1996 in the crash of ValuJet Flight 592, at age 26.
  6. David Griggs died in 1995 in a car accident at age 28.
  7. Lew Bush had died of an apparent heart attack, only six days after his 42nd birthday.
  8. Junior Seau has died of a self inflicted gunshot at his home today at age 43.

Really sad. Always admired his playing.

The thing is, he's only a few years from being a first ballot Hall of Famer. I can't think of a single player recently who's got 10 All Pros besides Seau. I'm wondering why. Wonder if he had severe depression and lost his purpose in life after retiring.

I was going to say Barry Sanders, but I think he had 10 Pro Bowls, not All Pros.

Barry and Seau are tied with 10 All Pros. Both were First Team 6 times and Second Team 4 times.

I guess I should have been more specific when I said "recent."

Truly sad indeed.

Always admired Seau as a player....very sad.

What demons would cause this, who knows?

Sad ending to a truly talented and passionate player.. fiery emotion but always seems to play within the confines of the rule book.

If the speculation is correct that he had a hole that could not be filled from the game.. I can understand that emotion as I once upon a time had the same hole. Probably still do.. but I cannot understand the decision he made. Again.. if the speculation is correct.

But as the very bright, no matter the error in choosing a hue, Vikesrule notes.. who knows the demons that haunted his mind.

May you find your peace Junior.

I respect the guy for what he did on the field, but can never respect the way he chose to end his life. His poor kids deserved better. May not be a popular post, but my honest opinion.

I saw an interesting thing about this, he had a gunshot wound to the chest. The same way Dave Duerson of the Bears ended his life. The point that was brought up was that they can also check the brain of Seau like they did with Duerson for past head injuries and disease from playing football.

He was a great player and a huge influence in his community and will be miss greatly.
