You have got to be kidding me..

A guy drops dead after his charity basketball tourney and all you can say is "Rb is def a priority now". Get a life.

This is an unbelievably horrible tragedy...my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. :salute:

Sorry, idk what's wrong with it, it was working.

DENVER (AP) Broncos running back Damien Nash collapsed and died after a charity basketball game in suburban St. Louis on Saturday, less than two months after the slaying of teammate Darrent Williams.
"We have been informed of the passing of Damien Nash," team spokesman Jim Saccomano said Saturday night. "We are attempting to get more details. ... We do know it's true."

Officials at Christian Hospital in St. Louis said the 24-year-old Nash died early Saturday evening. The cause of death wasn't immediately determined.

Nash collapsed shortly after participating in the game benefiting a foundation named for older brother Darris Nash. The foundation raises money for heart transplant research. It was established last month, after Darris Nash received a heart transplant.

"The Denver Broncos organization is once again struck with profound sadness over the tragic loss of one of our players," team owner Pat Bowlen said in a statement. "This is a tremendous tragedy and our hearts go out to the entire Nash family."

The Broncos are still reeling from the slaying of Williams, who was shot once in the neck while leaving a New Year's Eve party in his rented stretch Hummer in downtown Denver hours after the season ended. His slaying remains unsolved.

"The Broncos family has suffered a great loss with the passing of Damien Nash," coach Mike Shanahan said from Indianapolis, where he was attending the NFL's scouting combine along with general manager Ted Sundquist. "I am stunned and deeply saddened by this tragedy, and send my deepest condolences to Damien's family."

Nash was from East St. Louis, Ill., and played two years at Missouri after playing at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas. A fifth-round draft choice by Tennessee in 2005, he played in three games for the Titans before his release.

The Broncos signed him as a free agent last season and he played in three games, rushing for 98 yards on 24 carries.

I can't believe it. I was totally shocked when my friend called me and told me the news. What is happening? Nash helps out with a charity basketball game in St. Louis and then collapses. We lose D-Will Jan. 1st and now another Bronco. :sad:

My heart goes out to the whole Nash family and the Denver organization for this heartbreaking loss. :salute:

Oh, come on, give him a break. People often say "insensitive" things when they are shocked.

This is completely shocking to everyone

The 'RB Priority' comment was very insensitive, i agree, this isn't just about being a fan, this is about being human

I just hope the players and families can rally around eachother and make some sense and hope for eachother

The death and trauma that has surronded this team is unimaginable, and i just hope that we are allowed to honor our players this season, as a team and as fans

I agree that the comment was not needed, but everyone here needs to quit saying that the season is not important, cause I am sure there are many on this team believe it is the single most important in their careers. Tragic as it is, this is life - hundreds die in every major city per year and not one of us knows them all or even more then one usually, life and death is always tragic...you go through trials everyday to live and then you never know when you will die, that has always been the rule of the land. Sorry if I sound cold, but how many cried for the death of a child in the news, a lady in their neighborhood that got murdered and so on? That shows us how important football is to us as a community and as fans, so to say the season is not important is a lie.

My prayers go out to the Nash family and the Denver Bronco Organization.

Great Point!

How many posts have there been saying "I just don't know how much more I can take" or "I feel like I'm going to cry all day" Like it was their brother or something. If he would have been traded before he died we wouldn't be having this conversation. Quit acting as though you are in pain and think about Darrent and Damien's Families instead of yourselves.They are the ones who are in pain and crying. Honor them in any way you can, but don't pretend to know their suffering.
