Is the 1994 Chargers Super Bowl team cursed, or what?

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/Junior-Seau-death-another-tragedy-for-1994-San-Diego-Chargers-050212

Accidents, illness and the bizzare have all struck the 1994 Chargers. The tragic list:

• Linebacker David Griggs wrecked his car in Davie, Fla., in 1995. Tests showed he was legally drunk. He was 28.

• Running back Rodney Culver was killed in the ValuJet airplane crash in Florida in 1996. He was 26.

• Linebacker Doug Miller was struck by lightning in 1998 in Colorado. He was 28.

• Center Curtis Whitley died of a drug overdose in 2008. He was 39.

• Defensive end Chris Mims died from an enlarged heart in 2008. He was 38.

• Defensive lineman Shawn Lee suffered a heart attack in February 2011. He was 44.

• Linebacker Lew Bush also suffered a heart attack, in December 2011. He was 42.

• Seau died of a gunshot wound to the chest, which police are investigating as a suicide. He was 43.

Gotta wonder what would make a guy like that off himself? I mean financially speaking he's better off than 90% of the world's population. Just goes to show that money isn't everything I guess. He must've been depressed and you have to wonder if that stemmed from concussions or maybe even steroid use (don't know if he did steroids so maybe it's not appropriate to discuss that).

In any case, I feel sorry for his family, especially his kids. I have 5 kids and couldn't imagine doing something like that, which might speak to the state of mind he was in.
