For the first time, Dunta talks about the robbery (http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?section=magazine&id=3710707)

Didn't see this anywhere else, thought it needed mentioning.

You hear lots of stories about guys getting robbed, and you say, Man, what were they doing, how did they get into that situation? Flashy guys. Rude guys. Guys who act like they're better than everybody. I don't roll like that, and it still happened to me.


The hardest part was that it involved my family. My son was 2, my daughter 4 or 5 months. I wanted to run, then I wanted to fight. But you can't react like Scarface in the movies, go nuts and still get out of the situation alive—this is real life. As tough as I think I am, I had to give it up, get down on the floor and do everything they asked. You can defend yourself by fighting or by thinking. I chose thinking.

I never owned a gun, never thought I needed a gun—until I was robbed at gunpoint in my own home.

It was a Saturday. I'm watching college football on my couch. I look up, and guys are barging into my house, pushing guns in my face. Laid down, duct-taped, arms and legs bound behind me on my living room floor, with my kids pushed into a closet.

Scariest moment of my life.

Your link was tainted..


As a father I completely understand his actions. No need to be a hero and get yourself killed when your kids are involved. I didn't know his kids were with him at the time. Man that is unimaginable. I'm glad he has a gun now.



On a lighter side, good thing for Faggins it wasn't him that got robbed....

What let me know I wasn't going to die was they kept calling me by my first name. I saw them looking at my face, then back to the football pictures on the wall, then one of the guys was like, "You're a good player, so I'm not going to kill you."

ESPN was running some kind of story about P-Buc's robbery and the robbery/death of Sean Taylor and how the NFL offers free advice on how to protect themselves and their homes.

I think the story is in ESPN magazine this week.
