    Regardless of Jim beats this or not, he has already proven he’s not only a winner at the game of football but a winner at the game of life with his strength and courage.

    Kelly is like a Nalgene bottle. He gets run over by Mack trucks and keeps going.

    I’m sure he was feeling like crap at the HOF induction for Andre Reed,but he sucked it up to be there for him. You gotta love the guy,no matter what team you root for. Get well,Jim…There’s a ton of people pulling for you! #Kelly Strong!

    To all the ‘Thumbs Down’ crowd: Grow up and get a life.

    From a Pat’s fan who can’t stand the Bills, I was in awe of what Jim Kelly has gone through with his son and now is dealing with for himself. If there was ever a role model for kids to look up to it’s K-Gun. Every NFL player, especially the rookies should be made to see that video and understand what it is to be a man.

    I can only hope that the people voting thumbs down on words of encouragement never have to walk in Jim’s shoes. I wish him the best.

    The interview was heart-wrenching. God bless you, Jim. Praying for your recovery.

    Heartwarming video. He’s an inspiration. Hopefully he’s allowed to do some more good work down here before the Big Man calls his number.
