    Those who saw him play will agree he was quite a talent. The career-ending injury will never be forgotten.

    He was a graceful man on the field and even more off the field.

    Peace be with you.

    What sad news to begin the day. I'll never forget the Tatum hit and I felt then and feel now like it happened to a member of my own family. RIP.

    I don't think this is neccessarily a sad thing at all. I believe death is a beginning and not just an end. In Darryl's case I also believe it was a release from a body that became a prison.

    I hope Jack Tatum also finds some true peace about what happened.

    What Clona said. Maybe I missed some of the coverage, but I don't believe he ever expressed blame against Tatum once... that's keeping perspective under some pretty changed circumstances.

    Yeah, if there's a heaven, he's up there running routes...

    makes us realize there is a consequence to the violence we see in football and we need to understand there are human beings inside the uniforms and helmets

    Wow. RIP Darryl Stingley. I just read his memoir a month ago, and he was one of the strongest individuals I have ever heard of. He had a real drive and determination. I agree with the poster who said his body became a prison; I hope he finds peace and solitude in heaven.

    As for Jack Tatum, I hope he can live with the fact that he NEVER has felt remorse for that hit.

    This is a very sad day for All Pats Fans. Darryl Stingley was a fine player and even a better guy.What happened to Him on the field in Oakland was criminal and this morning Jack Tatum should be charged with murder.Jack Tatum is now suffering through his own problems but it will never be enough for what He did to Darryl Stingley. Rest In Peace Darryl, It's now time for You to run a "Double Reverse" for the Angels .

    Like Tony Conigliaro's very young passing, I think we can safely assume Stingley's early death was the result of his sports injury. Tatum's hit, in an exhibition game, on an uncatchable ball, after the ball was even gone, is the dirtiest cheap shot ever. It certainly had the worst result.

    Very, very sad. I never saw him play, but had the utmost respect for the guy.

    Much too young to leave us.
