    I just read about the Lions recent loss of a long time player and friend to their organization. Glenn Presnell died Monday at the age of 99, and I read he played for the Lions back in the 1930s. The game Sunday is just that, a game, and I wish the Lions fans and their team all the best.

    Thanks. I believe he was the last surviving member of the original Lions.

    He was also said to be the second oldest living player left in the NFL. The oldest being 101.
