    Sad News about McKeever (#86)

    Sad News about McKeever (#86) from Yahoo sports:

    Los Angeles Rams Marlin McKeever is shown in this August 1973 file photo in Los Angeles. McKeever, a two-time All-American at Southern California who played 13 years in the NFL, was comatose and in critical condition following a fall at his Long Beach, Calif., home, a longtime friend said Thursday, Oct. 26, 2006. John Papadakis said the 66-year-old McKeever had a blood clot on his brain and was in the intensive care unit at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with marlin and his family. I have one of his game worn jerseys, i really hope he pulls through and is back up and around. He played both wide receiver and linebacker during his career for the rams.

    ramming speed to all

    Wow, all that from a fall. Musta been brutal. Can't help but feel for his family having to watch him be in a coma. I can't imagine what it would be like to watch someone you love in that state. My prayers go out to him and his family as they struggle through this.

    To Marlin and his loved ones, "Best Wishes for a Complete Recovery."

    One of our fine LB / TE Rams from the past, a true and tough football player.

    Thanks for the news, RFS.

    Marlin McKeever was one of my favorite players while growing up with the RAMS.

    I wish him and his family a speedy recovery. My prayers are with him.

    I had the chance to meet his son, Marlin Jr. in Zermatt, Switzerland while in college. His son was a great person and I am certain an extension of father!

    Hopefully a turn for the better will come soon.
