What is sure to be the first of many tough days ahead, the Denver Broncos for the first time spoke publically as a unit about the loss of teammate and friend Darrent Williams. Mike Shanahan had the most to say, as you would expect from the man that has been the voice of the franchise for over a decade, but Shanny was still visibly shaken and upset trying to explain the unexplainable. I have a new found respect for the Coach and am damn proud that he is the head honcho of an organization I hold so dear. Here are some of Shanny's comments, many while holding back tears --
The team is still discussing ways to pay tribute to Williams next season, though no decision has been made.
Perhaps the saddest thing in all of this are the two children Williams has left behind. A memorial fund is being set up in Fort Worth for his 7-year old son and 4-year old daughter. The minute I find out more information about the fund, and ways to contribute, I will post the information here.
