    I'll take your word for it. I guess I wasn't paying close attention in those days (before joining the Boards).

    That's correct. We were totally unprepared for that opening game against the Bears, and that set the tone for the whole season.

    I started rooting for the G-men in '52. But I can't remember if it was 19 or 18 52.

    If 2-point conversions really do have a 50% success rate, then the expected (long-run) result is 1 point per attempt (1/2 of 2 is 1). If a 33-yard kick really does have a success rate of 93%, then...

    I completely missed the Yale Bowl years. I was in the military, stationed in Cowboys territory for many years. Hardly ever saw a game.

    Technically speaking, J/A/Z/Z is not an innocent word. Its original meaning refers to copulation, as in Louie Armstrong's "J/AZ/Z Me Blues".

    By the way, for what it's worth (probably not much), 'plurality' does not mean 'majority'. A 'plurality' is numerically less than a 'majority'.

    I can't imagine any front office allowing cameras in its war room. I think any team would consider that to be an intolerable breach of strategic and tactical privacy.

    Of course, I suppose...

    No doubt. But the players' union would need a lot of convincing. I suspect they would demand significant compensation for the (potential) increased injury risk.

    Agreed. Three games would be plenty. But they provide revenue, so the League will always want to keep as many as possible.

    I agree with your size estimate. As I recall, he was consistently listed around 250. Whenever an announcer gave his weight, he also mentioned that he had a 30" waist (I think that's the number --...
