He gave birth to one of the greatest offenses the NFL has ever seen, but he coached with honey and not vinegar. I never heard someone ever mentioning a bad word about him.

His influence is all over the NFL right now. One of the best ever, without a doubt.

RIP Bill Walsh

WOW.
What a significant loss to the NFL family. A charasmatic man that put his talents to work and brought the city of San Francisco 3 Super Bowls and 6 division titles. A truly awesome coach.

RIP Bill, my thoughts to his family.

sadly his son, aged 46, also died of leukemia a number of years ago. that must have made bill's diagnosis that more bitter..

When I was a kid, he was always my second "favorite" coach, after Joe. Very sad news, indeed.

The term "passes away" has a more particular resonance and particular sting when mentioned in the same breath as the loss of the irreplaceable Bill Walsh.

Cherish every moment, people. Today was a crushing reminder that our time is limited on this earth.

Truly one of the innovators of the game. I hated when we had to play against his teams. In fact, if not for Bill Walsh, the Redskins would have been the Team of the 80s. I have a lot of respect for him.

RIP, Bill.

Tonight NBC Nightly News briefly showed film of Coach Walsh and Joe Montana conferring on the sidelines. Those images brought back a lot of memories for me of Fall days long ago. Who could ever forget? RIP

NFL Network has some type of Walsh marathon on right now. For those who are still awake, check it out. I am learning alot of stuff about him that I never knew.

He defintely was angry after the alleged "phantom" interference calls on Ronnie Lott in the 83 NFC Championship Game at RFK.

Awful. I had no idea he was sick. Bill Walsh is one of the ones who coached "the right way." He earned the respect of his players through leading by example, not by making them fear him.

Goodbye Bill.

Condolences to his loved ones.

Absolutely the same thought I had, thanks for voicing it! Walsh forced everyone else to bring football up a level, his level. I think some of the best coaches ever to coach the game came in the 80's and Walsh was the best of the best

Rest in peace with your son now, God bless

R.I.P. Coach Walsh. I was just remembering of what a dog fight the NFC used to be and the coaches who used to stand on the sidelines. Coach Landry, Coach Parcells, Coach Walsh, and our very own Coach Gibbs. All those teams had some great games against one another.
