Re: Three all time NFL favorite athletes...
I grew-up a Willie Brown fan, but I've met him. Then again, I've met Otto Graham, lived down the street from Jack Pardee, and went to church with Joe Theismann. I've also met a handful of Redskins from back in the Larry Brown & Charlie Haraway days, to include Mike Bass. So, with that in mind, I'd have to say my three would be:
1. Ken Stabler (living)
2. Reggie White (deceased)
3. Walter Payton (deceased)
My top 3 for non-athlete with NFL affiliations, would look like this:
1. Al Davis
2. George Halas
3. Paul Brown
If you only know what you hear or read in the media,
you really don't know much.
