    I know this isn't the right forum, but this is an unbelievable tragedy.

    They're saying it's suicide.

    Sympathies to the Dungy's.

    Very sad. :(

    James Dungy, the 18-year-old son of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, was found dead at 1:30 a.m. ET Thursday in his apartment in Lutz, Fla., a suburb of Tampa, Debbie Carter, a spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, confirmed Thursday.
    A death investigation is under way, and the spokesperson said that the county medical examiner's office or the hospital at which James Dungy was pronounced dead would have a ruling on the cause of death.

    James Dungy officially was pronounced dead this morning at University Community Hospital in Tampa.

    Tony Dungy has left the Colts and is in Tampa. Indianapolis plays at Seattle this Saturday.

    My condolences to the Dungy family. This puts life in a real perspective. It's more than just football. May God guide them through the holiday season.

    I have five kids and pray that I "go" before they do. Almost nothing can be worse.

    You are in our prayers Dungy family.

    This certainly is the worst tragedy that can happen to a parent. I truly sympathize with Tony.

    However, I wonder how this will affect his coaching the team in the playoffs.
