True but the underlying topic is the same. How do teams deal with a tragedies that result in death. They were different types no doubt. Murder suicide is worlds different from a guy defending his family from a home invasion. However disbelief, grief, sadness, confusion, etc. All those emotions still come into play.

The main challenge for the Chiefs is how do they reconcile the teammate they thought they knew with the guy who committed an absolutely heinous act.

Only thing similar is someone died, but everyone in this world at one time or another has to deal with death. That's just the way life is, but for people to witness someone kill themselves in a public place at their work center is totally different.

Some people might be affected by that for the rest of their life.

I fear that this is the beginning of a string of tragedies involving NFL teams, i just think that two deaths like this in the same day is a grisly sign of what could come. I pray that is not the case but it sure seems that way....

If I'm correct that's now three people who have killed themself at an NFL facility this season.

Brady Quinn had maybe his best day ever as an NFL QB on the field yesterday...and yet he easily topped it with his post game presser

I don't know how true this is coming from the NY Post:

Chiefs linebacker Belcher struggled with head injuries, alcohol and painkillers before he snapped and killed girlfriend: report - NYPOST.com

I was thinking the same thing when I heard it. Very well spoken by him.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

PK said it best in his MMQB column about being in Piolis shoes when belcher has a gun and says I want to speak to coach crennel and coach gibbs...you have no idea what he's going to do with that gun and your coaches whom this man in distress is trying to talk to..

NFL to provide benefits for Jovan Belcher's daughter - NFL Videos


Good to hear that little girl will be taken care of financially. Let's hope her caretaker isn't some leech and steal all her money.

Heartbreaking. Would be tough for any mother to have to suffer this.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

The weird indirect link back to the redskins that no one seems to remember is Bryan Kehl. He was the backup ilb to Belcher in kc just days before the incident.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

It's harsh to say, and not that this would ever happen, but the best thing for that little girl (who is only three months old and would never know) would be for her to be adopted by loving and devoted stragers and her name changed. She would be better off growing up never knowing what happened to her parents. No matter what suport she gets now from family, knowing that your father murdererd your mother strikes me as impossible to recover from.

The whole thing is so awful.

I think its horrible they had a tribute in his locker. The dude is a murderer. He has ****ed up his daughters life who has lost both her parents forever. His own mother cannot be rite after seeing this. The coach and the gm. Not to mention all of his girlfriends friends and family. No sympathy whatsoever for this guy only the people he has hurt and traumatized. This is nothing, i repeat, nothing - like Junior Seau. This guy is a coward in every sense of the word.

I tell ya, gotta agree. The man shouldnt be celebrated today at all. Its certainly is tragic
Good for Tom Jackson. So glad you posted this. So true. Ive been bothered all week by the talk about Belcher. The only thing tragic is that he killed someone, traumatized others, and orphaned his little girl. How dare they celebrate or speak of him as anything other than a selfish and cold blooded killer.

I'm sure it's extremely difficult for his friends and teammates to suddenly just forget everything they shared with him that none of us did
