Alzheimers is just awful. 

Also, never forget that AJ Smith did Marty dirty.

It was a more complicated situation than that.

His coaching tree might not have been huge, but it had Bill Cowher on it.

 

He was also a pro bowl player on the last Bills Champion in 1965.

He had a 6 year playing career in the AFL/AFC

Such a tremendous shame when the mind goes, has to be an absolutely awful experience. Hope he's at peace soon.

Strange to say, but I'm hoping in the future, at least in the USA, more "death with dignity" laws will become available. Don't think Alzheimer's qualifies though, at least in California under the law. Personally I'd rather just go prematurely. Wouldn't want myself in that state being the last image for my family.

Reminds me of that Star Trek TNG episode.

Oh man, this is horrible. Marty had passion you couldn't fake, but was also a true teacher and leader of men out there.

It's a shame people focus on what he didn't accomplish.

May he live in peace and quiet!

Prayers go out to the family, who always struggle in these situations, to adapt to a new reality. Always a challenging condition for those closest to the person suffering from Alzheimer, even more than the person himself.

I ALWAYS rooted for Marty and so wish that he could have gotten over that hump in San Diego. That guy was absolutely fantastic at building a team, and IMO, a victim of timing and circumstances.
