We're just one of these from contending again... or something even remotely close to...


Francis Asbury Tarkington. 


Never forget your game my friend.

Agreed.  Sir Francis was great.
He drove Van Brocklin (SP?) nuts with his scrambling.
I remember seeing a clip of his more memorable scrambles.  Talk about entertaining.  Best one versus Detroit and it was  the longest scramble ever recorded time wise.  Still remember Alex Karras comment afterwards....something to the effect, "He came by me 3 times but the SOB kept getting away."

LOL...that was good Gb......yes I do recall the NFL film highlights about that. I was also very impressed with a highlights and interview with Fran (NFL film) ....very impressive and inspiring on or off the field. Greatness isn't only about the feats you accomplish over your career, it's also about the legacy/ impressions you leave behind....and Fran did that big time!
