I always rooted for the undersized types...guys like Singletary, Mills, Zach Thomas, etc., because I was always undersized, too. It's that old mentality of "if they can do it, so can I". Of course, they were all better athletes than me and had better football instincts. But it was just the idea of don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something because you're too [x].

It's sad to see that the cancer finally got the best of him, though

RIP #51

RIP... always a class act, a man of true character who led by example both on the field and on the coaching staff. It's hard to believe that, even though his life was in serious jeopardy due to the cancer, that he's actually gone. My condolences go out to his family.

What a sad day. Sam was a real leader, and a hell of coach for the Panthers. I really thought that he was gonna have this cancer beat. Another good man who was taken away far too soon.

Gonna miss you Sam.

Don't forget he was a Saint! Once a Saint Always a Saint.

The Dome Patrol Memories of Mills and Rickey Jackson really made me a Saints fan back in the early 80's.

He will be missed and deserves a spot in the NFL Hall of Fame.
