back together after a tragic loss. I believe it was DaQuan Bowers who lost his father at a very inopportune time a couple of years back. And he recovered, but it took time.

Cars don't just somehow mysteriously "lose control". The drivers are usually distracted or driving too fast for conditions (curves, wetness, etc), so I suspect this the case.

I look for Carlos to do some big things this year, for the love of the game, and in memoriam to his buddy Sheeke.


sure they do

I hydroplaned off the road going about 45-50 mph on a straightaway 55 speed limit zone. It had rained earlier and roads were wet, but it was nothing you don't see every day. I was not in a hurry, not distracted - just hit a puddle the wrong way; next thing I knew I was spinning into a ditch.

You can say I was driving too fast for conditions, but if that is true you must drive 35 for several hours after it rains.

You can't imagine how easy something like that can happen until it happens to you. I was just lucky that I was the only car on the road at the time.

You're ignorant to assume and suggest the driver was acting irresponsibly or was distracted....plenty of serious and fatal wrecks happen in rainy, wet conditions when people are driving even below the speed limit with both eyes peeled. I'd suggest that we are fortunate the driver WAS paying attention and driving responsibly otherwise Carlos may have been injured much more severely!! Carlos lost his best friend in a tragic accident that could have happened to all of us & your dumbazz has to vocalize your idiotic assumptions....looser!! Carlos, we're all thrilled you're back and look forward to seeing you kick ### on the field and honor your best friend, Sheeke's, memory!! Ignore the moron's who make idiotic statements like the guy I'm responding too.
God Speed!


Agree that was an "idiotic assumption"!***
