    It's the least they could do since they didn't vote him into the Pro Bowl...or require all teams to wear 91 for a week.

    Before we talk about Hill being slighted, let's be fair; they didn't do anything for Damien Nash (the Bronco who died during the offseason), either.

    But, still, if you think about it, do you think the NFL would have even bothered if the Pats weren't having the season they were?

    No Jersey Selected

    I'm not sure if much was done when the other Bronco died (foxworth ?) either.

    The big differences between Hill and Taylor are that 1) Taylor was a pro-bowl caliber starter, Hill a backup and 2) Taylor's death occurred in the middle of the season.

    It is nice that NFLN is doing a little something to remember Hill.

    It's nice, but it's sad it takes pro bowls and undefeated seasons to make death matter.
