A talented player, an honorable opponent, a clutch receiver (the Catch!) ... he helped knock my Cowboys out of the hunt enough.

Much respect, Dwight, you played it how it ought to be played.

I loved football. Played thru college ( well ,mostly sat on pine) . But I am slowly starting to believe that the assoc brain damage is not worth it. Play long enough at a high enough level and the head trauma piles up. I am waiting for some University to say they are dropping the sport due to health concerns. It will happen. I hope sooner vs later. How can a university justify the risk they are subjecting students to? So far I have had no diagnosed damage. And I am probably old enough to have slipped by. Thank God my talent was only so so, I guess.

I knew he wasn't doing well, but was very surprised to see his obituary story in today's LA Times. I'll always remember the Montana/Clark duo during two minute drills in NFL games. RIP Dwight, you were a class act all the way, on and off the field.

This wasn't old age that go Dwight Clark. It was Lou Gehrig disease ALS that did him in.

RIP. I wonder if the ALS is related to chronic traumatic encephalopathy...

There's no direct link known at this time. Wiki reports that 5-10% of all cases are genetic, but that the causes for the remainder are unknown.

Rest in Peace. He was a great football player who seemed like a genuinely nice guy.
