Jaguars Tackle Shot Several Times
Player Has Life-Threatening Injuries; Ex-Jaguar Not Injured

POSTED: 6:40 am EDT September 2, 2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Jaguars player Richard Collier was shot several times outside a Riverside apartment early Tuesday and police said his injuries were life-threatening.

Collier and former Jaguars player Kenneth Pettway were outside an apartment in the 2300 block of Riverside Avenue waiting for two women they met at a San Marco club. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman Ken Jefferson said a gunman approached and shot into their car.

Collier, who was in the driver's seat, was struck several times. He was transported to Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center.

Pettway was not injured in the attack.

Police said they do not know who fired the shots or the reason behind the attack.

Collier, 26, is a tackle out of Valdosta State. The Jaguars picked up up as an undrafted free agent in 2006.

Pettway, 25, a defensive end out of Grambling State, was picked up from the practice squad in 2006 and played 10 games in 2007. He was the seventh-round draft pick of the Houston Texans in 2005.

Pettway was one of 19 players the Jaguars cut on Saturday.

This is so Sad and shocking.
This sounds like a Set-up by some skank Hoochie's!
Pray For Richard, He's fighting for his life right now.
I have more I'll say later.
This is one of the nicest guys on the Team.
I'm upset.

Okay, if we can STOP the worship of the Jaguars, we can smell the roses. The Jaguars have a history of affirmative action for thugs. Watch the Jags play another team on TV and note the huge disparity of blacks vs whites. Collier should NOT have been shot, and we are all sorry for him. But look at his criminal record!

You wanna worship someone, worship God. Jaguars are NOT gods.

Following is the story from FOXNews.com .

I'll make it easy for you (From FOXNews.com ):

"Earlier this year, Collier pleaded no contest to a drunken driving charge, avoiding trial and accepting six months of probation. The 6-foot-7, 350-pound linemen was arrested Nov. 3 after officers found him asleep behind the wheel of his sports utility vehicle at a McDonald's drive-thru window, according to a police report. Collier failed field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol level of .096. In Florida, it is illegal to drive when a person's blood-alcohol level reaches .08."

Wow, what a great role model we have. Keep defending them, Jack!

Whatís your point about the disparity of blacks vs whites?

Blacks are screaming for "equality." They got Affirmative Action. If whitey wants equality, he;s called a racist. It just is obvious that Jack has only been able to find blacks for his team... many of whom are just wonderful role models. You mean to say he is singling out blacks only? You mean, the New England Patriots must be racist because they have a lot of white players? It just seems crazy, that's all. Maybe it would be politically correct to replace whitey Tom Brady with someone "of color" for the sake of diversity. All I'm saying is we're carrying this carp too far. Otherwise, I couldn't care less about the races.

I really wish "idiot" was an option for "judge it" on some of these posts.

You are a fool. There are more blacks on the football team because blacks are more masculine and athletic than the typical white man. You don't like it? Go take your 'carp' and watch some water polo. There should be some white guys there. Jack Del Rio has built a top 5 football team. You don't know what you are talking about.

He had one DUI. What a record. What about Matt "6.6 grams of Cocaine" Jones. White vs black disparity? What? The majority of the NFL is black because the majority of blacks are better athletes than whites.

I wonder what the demographics would be of all DUIís so far this year, I wonder which age group would have the most DUIís.
More heckís or lawyers,
more professional athletics or people working for the State attorneys office?
More Navy or Army,
more men or women?

People can't handling your opinion is one thing but as far as Blacks in the NFL ; that's just a FACT!
Anyone saying otherwise knows NOTHING about football like the "Carp" fool above.
They just can't handle your message, as usual.
This time you're dead-on right though!
I'm praying for Richard. He's a great young man.
Go Jaguars!

A pro ball player with only a DUI is just about amazing any more. This guy seems to be a pretty good young man. Just giving credit where it is due.

either some one has excellent shooting skills or really pants at shooting, how do you open fire on a car and only one person get hit that many times with the other one not getting so much as a scratch........... really sounds like those poor blokes where set up.......... and I hope that they [a] find the shooter [b] that he recovers.
