Default Bringing back some memories...

I was thinking about some of the players who have left an impression on me over the years and thought it would be great to have a thread in which we could put the name of a player that has made an impression on you over the years.

For a starter, Karl Mecklenberg, Denver Broncos middle linebacker.

One of the first players I really liked when I became interested in football back in the late 1980's.

6 time probowler and second all-time on the Broncos sack charts.

Its amazing he got picked in the 12th round.

When I first started playing organized league football when I was a kid, I got stuck at center. So I more or less idolized the centers that rooled at that time: Jim Otto (Raiders) and Mick Tinglehoff (Vikings).

Tinglehoff played for 17 years and was a 6 time pro-bowler. He started in 4 Super Bowls. He was an undrafted free agent, iirc.

Jim Otto played for 15 years, he was #00. I believe he was the first player ever drafted by the Oakland Raiders. He was an AFL All Star 10x (every year the league was in existence) and a pro-bowler 3x. He was selected into the Hall of Fame in 80. He just had his leg amputated in August and was a regular fixture with Al Davis in the Raider's Owner's box. I don't know if he's been going to the games since his amputation.

The Okoye/Word tandem. I was 12 and thought it was the greatest thing I'd ever seen. I loved it.
