Larry Brown tough runner that as a Cowboy fan I hated seeing come to town. Tex says he was also color blind.

[/quote]

Now hold on a minute, I didn't say Larry Brown was color blind. He had a hearing impairment which caused him to be slow off the snap. When Lombardi was coaching the Redskins, he noticed this and had his helmet fitted with an ear piece that relayed Jurgensen's snap counts which improved his responsiveness off the snap.

Roger Staubach was color blind. He could have avoided his military obligation because of it but refused. Just one more reason why he's not only the best at his position but also as a human being. IMO.

Earl Morrall holds three SB rings, V, VII, VII.

Walt Garrison was one of my all-time favorite power fullbacks. Don Meridith said it best, "If it was third down, and you needed four yards, if you'd get the ball to Walt Garrison, he'd get ya five. And if it was third down and ya needed twenty yards, if you'd get the ball to Walt Garrison, by God, he'd get you five." He was also a professional rodeo, steer wrestler, I think it was a steer wrestler. Anyway he injured his knee in a rodeo incident which ended his pro football career. He is an inductee of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame for his rodeo prowess. But i think my all-time favorite power fullback would have to be Jim Taylor of the Packers.

In my book, Jim Brown is #1 followed by Larry Csonka.

Thanks for correcting me on that Jim. Larry Brown was probably deaf and blind after that hit.

Do you guys know the hit Im talking about?

I think it might have been in the Super Bowl against the Dolphins.

It knocked his helmet clean off his head.

That hit on Brown is in this Clip. This guy was fearless and I don't know how he survived. Notice when he gets by the sidelines.

There's no running(skipping) out of bounds here.

Yeah speaking of running out of bounds my youngest son asked me last night...Dad why does the runner always run out of bounds if the object is to get as many yards as you can???? I didnt have a good reply, well I had one but I am glad it didnt come out!!

With the career expectancy of an NFL running back being incredibly short. I'm fine with someone stepping out of bounds after the 1st down is achieved to avoid a hit.

No doubt Larry Brown was talented but was also one tough S.O.B. What makes that video great was the " voice of god".
