Mike Heimerdinger was the Denver Broncos wide receiver coach during the Super Bowl years before heading to Nashville to be an offensive coordinator for a stint, then to Denver again and back to Nashville before being let down in February of this year.

He was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer last year and his year long fight ended tragically for a coach who played a large role in our favorite teams success in the last two decades.

Jeff Fisher released this statement in the wake of Heimerdinger's passing, "It was a tough deal and Dinger was a tough guy to the end, which is no surprise to those who knew what type of competitor he was. He was a man's man."

We at MHR extend our deepest sympathies to Heimerdinger's family and friends.
