    RIP Mr Martinez, by all accounts he had the opportunity to do that which he loved up until his passing many people do not have that opportunity. He impacted a lot people in a positive way very sad when good people pass away.

    If I recall correctly, it was only recently that Martinez put an offer out to Tim Tebow that he could have all his throwing flaws cured in two weeks together. Too bad this didn't have a chance to happen. Martinez must have had some really special knowledge of how to handle quarterbacks. I wonder if he did any books or videos.

    Apparently Tom is still vacationing in Costa Rica upon this sad news.

    Hope he gets word fast to get back to the states to be able to attend the funeral.

    Seemed like a great guy,he will be missed by many.

    RIP.


    seems there was a lot of genuine affection between Martinez and Brady.

    He'd been battling illness a while now. At least he's at peace now.

    Condolences out to the family. RIP.


    I wonder if in some motivational way; (not just how he pushed matinez on getting a transplant) that TB & the Pats SB run had given him something to hold out for ... to see his golden boy win another one.

    If so the SB loss might have been a bit more disappointing for him and his body might have given up a little bit of the fight.

    One more reason to go aaarrrrrggghhhh. Would have been nice if they had won it for both MHK and TM.

    Sad news. RIP Tom Martinez.

    Brady has a fundraising event on Thursday at his old high school. Either way, I think he would have been back after hearing about the death of his mentor.

    RIP.

    I became a huge fan of Martinez as soon as I saw "The QB Whisperer", as much as he was a brilliant mind with regards to throwing the ball he seemed like an even better person.
