Well after a 3 + week hiatus for this topic, Forest Gregg, one of the NFL's all-time greats passed away on April 12. He was a mainstay at tackle for the great Lombardi Packer offensive lines and was a 7 time 1st team All Pro. He was one of the first of those Packer teams o get elected to the Pro Football HOF. He also was a long time coach in the NFL, College and the CFL although his coaching career was not as stellar as his playing career where he always made the NFL All Time teams. He did however coach the Bengals to the 1982 Super Bowl where they lost to the first Joe Montana 49er championship team. He also won NFL coach of the year once which I believe was that same Super Bowl year.
It was a great 3 week break - would be nice if we never had any additions to it....
But RIP Forrest Gregg - many only remember him for coaching the Bengals to the Super Bowl, but forget how great he was as a player. That is why your brief history lessons/reminders are always appreciated!
