I know it's a small thing in the face of a large tragedy, but I'm gratified that the Cardinals are embracing former players and coaches during this time. Not many organizations would have statements from players they traded, and coaches they let go. It is a testament to their feelings about this man.

Tillman Bros

ARMY RANGER BROS

The two made quite a sacrifice
By joining the Army’s elite
The motto, "Rangers Lead The Way"
Now, for one is bittersweet.

They both walked from professions
And put it All on the front line
To do their Duty to their Country
For, Freedoms of yours and mine.

He lost his Brother to the enemy
In an ambush firefight
The Ranger Creed is what He lived by
And He believed in what was Right.

He said, his Grandpa was at "Pearl"
But, felt He hadn’t done His part
So, after Nine Eleven
He knew what to do, down in His heart.

He made the Sacrifice, Supreme
And He surely gave His all
And in that Army, up in Heaven
You can bet He’s standing Proud and Tall.

I know this is gonna be up for debate but, I heard rumors that maybe they might induct Tillman into the hall of fame. Not as a player, but as " a person ". What does everyone think of the idea? I would be for it, for sure. I'm glad Arizona and the NFL has shown so much class thusfar in dealing with this situation. RIP Pat

I'd have absolutely no complaints about this. The man gave up everything for what he felt was his duty. Other organizations give honorary inductions to far less deserving people so how could this be a bad thing or wrong to do?

For whatever small amount it's worth...

As a servicemember who was serving during Sept. 11th, I was impressed, if that's even the right word, when Pat decided to join up.
I actually started to tear up yesterday when I heard that he'd been killed. What an amazing american. His sacrifice was no greater than the many other men and women who have given their lives for our great nation, but the fact that he was willing to give up fame and fortune to serve was a reminder that debate about the validity of the conflicts we are currently engaged in is just Free Speech, the right to which is provided by the blood of heroes like Pat Tillman.

I don't believe the earlier quotes and comments were meant as an indictment of anyone not serving, merely as an appreciation of those who do.

I am grateful for people like Pat Tillman and I will keep him, his family and his brother, who is still fighting, in my thoughts and prayers.
