    Nice to see madden took interest in stingley. RIP Stingley.

    One thing football fans learned from Patriots receiver Darryl Stingley's 1978 injury was what a truly decent human being John Madden is. Madden, who at the time was the Oakland Raiders' head coach, took it upon himself to make sure Stingley had a constant stream of visitors while he was in a Bay Area hospital before he could be moved to a hospital closer to his home.

    Madden and Stingley developed a lifelong friendship, but Madden has also staunchly defended his own player, Jack Tatum, whose hit injured Stingley. This week Madden described both Stingley and Tatum as "good guys"
