    Wow. That's sad. A young man with so much potential just lost his career and, to a greater extent, a "normal" life in a senseless shooting. He will be in my prayers.

    They said Collier, who had 14 bullet wounds, is now in stable condition after being previously listed in critical condition.

    Wow, I do not think I was an accidental shooting. Obviously, he was a target. I am amazed he is alive. Apparently, the shooter(s) do not believe in aiming for the head.

    I have that same feeling in my stomach now, as when I did when I found out about Sean Taylor. Certainly, the results are different, but how can Collier lead a "normal" life with all the "what-if's" Best of luck to him and his family.

    14 shots? He was lucky to stay alive. I knew a guy who was shot in the head and is still alive with a bullet inside his head.

    The doctor told him that he would not live long BUT he has lived for years.

    I wish him all the best. Given the track of I suspect many professional athletes, namely you bet it all on your football career and ability to earn as a result of that career, I hope he was able to save some money. I hope he gets something from the NFL to take care of himself and any family he might have.

    To any athlete this would be a huge blow (life changing to everyone but most people don't make a living from athletic participation). If it caught him at the beginning of his career, even more so.

    Horrible and disgusting. I don't pray, but I'll send my thoughts to his family. So senseless.

    I hope they find the asshat who did this and... well, send him to Texas for his court appearance. I mean, they still hang people over there, right?

    Wow. My first thought is that this is saddening and tragic. But my second thought is wow, 14 times? He is truly lucky to be alive. I'm glad he is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to still live a full and happy life.

    We take care of people like this here in Florida, no need to send him to Texas for that.

    This is a sad reality here in Jax and it is only getting worse. Just the other day on my way into work, all the lanes were shut down on Beach Blvd. because (less than 2 miles from my house) there was a man who was shot in the head inside his car, in a parking lot. They found the guy who did it (his "friend") and his reason was because the guy was making fun of him about the girl he is seeing during their way home from a club. :nooo:

    My thoughts and prayers go out to him that they find the fkers who did this and that he may recover and lead a fulfilled life.
