    Todd Christensen passes away

    I know this is not Dolphins related and probably will be moved. Hated to hear the news. Was a great player.
    With all that's going on with the Dolphins it shows what is really important and that football is just a game.

    RIP. He was such an essential part of that dominating raiders team of the 80's. I always enjoyed him as a commentator too. He will be missed by many.

    It is a sad day indeed. He was not only a great player but a special human being. He was exceptionally eloquent and made events come alive with his descriptions.

    He was a great Raider. The NFL was better with him in it. Todd, you will be missed.

    I was shocked to hear that yesterday. I hadn't heard about his serious liver issues.

    Christensen was a high profile player in college. Somehow there's a notion that nobody knew anything before ESPN or the internet. I was still in Miami during Christensen's college days and we saw BYU all the time. He was a pass catching fullback with a big frame. I can't say I projected Christensen to be so successful as a standard tight end but he definitely appeared to have an NFL future.

    Following his career I always enjoyed him as an analyst. He had good rapport with his announcing partners and a needling sense of humor.
