Great stat predictions article, Dan. Something fresh and new, since it's been a while since I seen one of those. You should do an article predicting the regular season & playoffs. Keep it up, as you're one of my favorite columnists on the site.
Hi Dan, just read your article on the most devastating injuries in Franchises' History and enjoyed it. However, I think you left out something that was devastating in the Detroit Lions history. I not sure of the year though I think it was '72 and I believe the opponent was the Bears. Chuck Hughes a WR went out for a pass collapsed and passed away. As far as I know the only time a player has died in an NFL game. I believe the autopsy showed he had a congenitial heart condition. The only other one I believe you missed (this I recall as a Unitas fan) is in '68 when Johnny U. went down. Granted Earl Morrall lead the Colts to a nearly spotless 13-1 regular season record, but, I believe had Johnny U. been healthy the Colts that year would have gone undefeated and they would have been histories darlings not the '72 Dolphins. Your thought??? By the way Unitas or Montana? Unitas all the way! I agree with a great number of your likes above. Though I've been a Minnesota Vikings fan since I started following football in '68 (I was a 9 yr. old Nosetackle & loved Alan Page). If you can give me anymore info about the Chuck Hughes incident I would appreciate it. It is never talked about and my recollection of the incident is vague. Thank you, I enjoy your writing. Sincerely E. Cullinan
why are none of my replies showing up on your page?
Really awful article on the uniforms; just unexciting, zero imagination and even less research
I'm trying to forget that game against your Bills, thanks for pouring salt in the wounds. Yea, Bills did some good things in FA, and I'll bet they have a good draft. Just beat the damn Pats a couple times and it will make me happy.
After I read the article I looked at your profile. Bills fan, explains why you think they are going from suck to elite. Good luck with that.
With regard to acknowledging Rosey Brown as the correct greatest draft steal for the Giants, you are welcome. You might want to check out some of the other choices as well, since you might find other selections from the distant past that were greater steals.
You really whiffed on your list of greatest draft steals for each NFL team when you overlooked Roosevelt Brown for the New York Giants, possibly the greatest steal of all times! He was selected in the 27th round of the 1953 draft - the 312th player selected!! You should know that he went on to be, even at a mere 255 lbs., one of the greatest offensive linemen of all times!
Check it out - and please correct your list!
Congratulations on a tremendous success with your "NFL Power Rankings" Post. Well deserved reward for such a monumental project.
