Very sad that Garrett couldn't pull his life together. This generation on young people need to see what a waste of life is happening.

As I recall, his younger brother is in jail for drug possession.
Garret also spent time in jail for drug related crimes.

Such sad, sad heartbreaking news...

As a Philadelphian and a hardcore Eagles fanatic for my entire life, my thoughts and prayers are with Coach Reid, his family, friends and the Eagles players.

Eagles fans are a strong stock and we will stand behind Coach and the team. We definately have strong opinions about Coach, but this is personal and football has no bearing on any of this.

God bless.

To Eaglesfan1 - I couldnt agree with you more. As a Philly girl, I am sick over Garretts death and incredibly sad for Andy and his family. Philadelphia is in mourning for Garrett and for Andys loss. May you be at peace in Gods loving arms Garrett. And Andy, we are all hurting for you - I pray God will help you and your family through this terrible time. We love you.

I agree    

I'll never forget how, at a 2003 pregame, Eagles fans taunted Bucs player Joe Jurevicius right after his newborn son died with comments like, "Where's your son?" Such a classy bunch.
