My thoughts go out to the family and friends of Johnny Unitas as they do to those who lost loved ones in the 911 tragedy.

Stay safe guys.

No offense, but it figures it happened this week, so now the Colts will play with more urgency against us this week. Johnny was a great player, and an awesome QB.

here is what Shula had to say: http://www.miamidolphins.com/pressbox/pressreleases/pressreleases.asp?contentID=2213

I would expect some memorial service at the game to honor the man. He was already way past his prime when I started really following football, but he was the prototypical superstar QB back when QBs called their plays.
