It's hard to think of much worse than losing to the worst team in the league and allowing them an emotional, inspiring win in honor of a murderer. Losing to Brady Quinn and then watching him act like some sort of hero by giving a postgame conference about society isn't much better. A special thanks to Dwayne Bowe for tweeting out a picture of the T-shirt honoring the murderer, too. Mis-spelled name and everything.
A loss in the face of tragedy is, definitely, something that requires a level of perspective - it's just a loss. It's not a loss of life. But, to lose to a team so they can celebrate their teammate and friend, a guy who also just happened to take the ultimate coward's way out? Try honoring that kid he orphaned, not the guy who
was such a great teammate he brought tragedy on his team; not the guy who brought his tragedy to work and scarred other professionals forever.
But they honored him anyway, and Carolina went ahead and gave them a win. That's about as close as I can get to analyzing the ballgame.
