    Gene Upshaw Passes Away

    Fox sports radio is reporting that Gene Upshaw has passed away from cancer.
    I cannot find any sites reporting this information yet....
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    ahh...so it is true....
    Much too young.
    I never heard that he was sick....living in Northern California....I am surprised this never leaked out....

    I have heard that Gene was the only man to play in 3 superbowls for the same team in three seperate decades.....

    RIP Gene

    Wow, entirely too young to pass away.
    I didn't even know he was sick.
    I respected what he did on the field, although I hated what he did in the player's union.

    Someone should change the title of the thread to "Gene Upshaw passes away" so we know what it is actually about (other wise get ready for dups)

    What exactly did you hate about what he did?

    RIP Gene.

    I wonder if he knew even before he knew and that was why he was so stubborn about sticking it out in his position instead of stepping down.

    Great player for sure...no one can ever take that away.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
