Sad about Siragusa, he was a hilarious dude and seemed a good guy. WTF on Ferguson. Tragic.

I initially thought Siragusa's routine was ridiculous on the sideline, but I warmed up to him and it turned out with the secondary feeds and Manning-cast that Tony was just ahead of his time. He should have been in a living room a la Manning-cast opining on the game with a couple other O or D Linemen meatheads. A great TV personality for sure, I think my wife watched his DIY show and she detests football with a passion.

I remember a clip of Siragusa, when he was working a game, standing with the End Zone Militia as they fired their muskets. Can't find it now with some basic searching.

RIP

The first thing I thought about with Siragusa, the thing I always think about, is the dirty hit -- the 342-pound deadweight drop -- that separated Rich Gannon's shoulder in the 2001 AFC Championship game and earned him a $10,000 fine. Too bad for him, but that dirty play is as much a part of his legacy as the ring he won that year.

Reading about Ferguson, seems to have been a very good person. Spent his draft day supporting relief efforts after a tornado hit his hometown.

26 is too young for anyone, seems like he was a really good human being

Siragusa was really good in the movie 25th hour in a part that was far larger than you'd guess.
Holy shit. This is one of my five favorite movies of all time and I never made the connection. Wow. He is as great in that role.

Fentanyl and cocaine for Ferguson. Wonder if the coke was cut w Fentanyl and he had no idea. That’s obviously complete speculation by me but be careful out there @Marciano490

An autopsy of former Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson revealed he died from the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Friday. His death was also ruled an accident, according to the office.
