Statement from Washington Redskins head coach

Mike Shanahan on the death of Mike Heimerdinger:

“We lost a very special person and my best friend in Mike Heimerdinger. I know the man upstairs needed a superstar so he took him earlier than we all wanted. His love for his family was unprecedented and I will forever miss him.”

Although having zero connection to the Redskins (might want to move this to the ATN); a well respected offensive mind and in particular QB coach, although he never officially had that title. Read a lot of good things about Heimerdinger over the years.

Condolences to his family. 58 is too young an age to pass.

God rest.

Hail.

The guy was a class act and Shanahans best friend. Prayers go out for his family and Mike Shanahan.

More info.....http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/10/01/long-time-nfl-assistant-mike-heimerdinger-dies-of-cancer/

Heimerdinger served as offensive coordinator in Tennessee twice, helping the late Steve McNair to a co-MVP award in 2003. Heimerdinger also worked for the Broncos as assistant head coach and the Jets as offensive coordinator.

After being diagnosed with cancer in November, Heimerdinger delayed treatment so that he could travel with the team to Houston and call the plays for the Titans’ game against the Texans.

His college roommate was former Broncos and current Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.

If the statement was from coach Belichick and issued from the Patriots, I'd agree with you.

Basically. I Don't understand the need for hardcore policing in The Stadium.

R.I.P. & my condolences to his family & close friend coach Shanahan.

RIP to a great man. Condolences to his family and friends (Coach Shanahan).

From the official death notice:

"Heimerdinger was in his second stint as the Titans' offensive coordinator. The man called "Dinger" was college roommates with Mike Shanahan and helped coach McNair to co-MVP of the NFL with Peyton Manning in 2003 during his first run in Tennessee.

He also spent 2005 as offensive coordinator of the New York Jets before joining Shanahan in Denver as assistant head coach in 2006 and 2007. Then it was back to Tennessee. "
