Trying to get the money as fast as possible or trying to avoid the media? Just a little weird to have the hole already dug.

Definitely odd, do they keep extra caskets around the house or something?

if you have never seen No time for Sergeants or Face in the crowd then do yourself a favor and watch muy pronto.

AG has presented a pretty low key and stable public image throughout his life and likely wanted a private family affair.

I suspect at 86 he has had the time to contemplate his death and how he wanted it handled. If there was any indication of impending death, with a little pre-planning, his wishes could have been carried out without too much trouble.

RIP Andy.

At a time when the South is only thought to have rednecks its good to remember there are plenty of great character people as well. Love TAGS. Watched reruns with my Grandparents growing up, so it has a special meaning to me. I do my best to raise my kids the way Andy was portrayed to raise Opie. Im from Mt.Airy, Andy's home, and he very rarley came "home" not wanting to cause a big fuss.

As far as the quick burial, Im sure Andy didnt want it to be a big event or media circus. North Carolina lost a great person, Im sure Andy and Barney are on patrol in a better place.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
