"Rate clip there from nfl films about paul horning the golden boy who passed away this past week for more on this great packer. This great nfl eitan the likes of which we just don't have any more different time different place out say hello once again to cliff crystal. The official team historian for the green bay packers cliff. Good morning how are you today. My good to you. Add such a such a tough one to take you know as all these great packers enter the firmament. It's tough but you know you know. Paul horning was the ultimate in terms of just the fund. The sizzle the nickname. The golden boy was perfect for him. Talk to me about the legacy of the great paul horning. Well i think you're right there. He's You know he was the leader of that team leader. The lombardi packers. He was a guy that kind of kept team. Lewis when lombardi was screaming and barking at all the time and lombardi appreciated that And that was a big part of his legacy. But i also think that Place his role on the team. is not appreciated by a lot of people including hall of fame selectors that i said on the hall. Fan selection committee really been some vince. Lombardi called him the greatest player. He ever coached quarterback for his greg. Being the finest player coach nine ships. That was somebody somebody made up. Woody was coaching cleveland. And it's bs Horns the only guy on party ever publicly stated that about and You know the stats. Don't translate today is football. But that's who lombardi built offense around. He built his around the left halfback quarterback when he came in nineteen fifty nine. That was the first position. He said he had to fill. And find the right guy for and i went to the hall of fame last time about five years ago. And you've got out display pro football hall of fame. I'm bardy sweep the power and they make it sound like jim taylor ran the sweet. Maybe more than horneck did or at least as much on the half back carried the ball and public sweet. That's the offense is built around hornets. taylor random week sites we've been occasion but That often put maximum in the role of the point of attack blocker Party didn't build an offense around play that maximum he was keith. Blocker It just i wish people would accept the fact that he was not only the leader of that team but he was a great player. Yeah he was like gale sayers to the bears. A great player short career because of injuries When was inducted to the hall of fame you recall. He was one of the last. You know her badly said he would. It should have been the first. It's only guy believable and party ever said what he was alive will be for sure inducted into the pro football team and i think uh late eighties eighty six. Get her six. So so how many years did he languish in that I don't want to get into it but that committee room of sports writers before he finally got through Wow he would have been eligible seventy one so fifty years. He's fifteen years. Do you think the gambling cliff had anything to do with that. it might Mean people bring up his name in the meetings. When i was on the committee about look at his statistics. You know. compare running backs to him been beating. What's his takes. He led the league in scoring ledley in scoring that the only stat. You need to know that record stood for six years and schedule cliff these sports writers. Sometimes i wanna strangle them. I can't believe that argument well. Compared to today's backs it was today it was back in the day. For god's sakes okay go ahead. i'm sorry. I just You know in nineteen sixty. Seven packers struggled during that season offensively. They were having some issues. Somebody said at some point you know we just we miss paul mornings leadership That's really hurting us. She said we still have his team. But we don't have a guy like on. Ice bowl comes and horny in. Lombardy insists that paul horneck be on the sideline. And if you get the right click but that final conversation sideline conversation with bart starr insularity the guy kind of tolerant over. Because he was a big guy. Paul horneck on the sideline as a spectator on the ice bowl. Because party wanted him there for leadership. Wow i wonder i wonder if paul was like mantis cold out here. I really have to be happy. And the other great thing is that he had already been drafted the year prior to lombardy taking over so this was a player who is known for his fun loving ways. Who you wouldn't think would be a guy that someone like vince. Lombardi would necessarily fall in love with and he was already. There wasn't a guy that lombardi picked and yet he became one of his favourite players. That says a lot. Yeah he played actually played two years. You're blackburn and he played a year in. Cleveland could decide what he should be tried to. My quarterback played mostly full-back Started i think the last game and fifty eight and a half back but Nicknamed green bay at that time was piccadilly paw the hang out for all the players one hundred fifty eight was piccadilly While increasing bar green bay at the time and so i like piccadilly paul better than goldway and then you know for the years afterwards In his retirement. I think he embraced very much the fact that he was a packer legend. I have heard from a number of people who've said that he was just a delight to be around in his post playing days. Yeah i i think the best way to describe contribution is for sure. Nineteen sixty one on the packers. Were at first. Nfl championship under lombardi. He is the mvp the league's mvp of the championship game. I don't think they win their championship with out in nineteen sixty two. He's hurt for much of the year. Jim taylor is a great year. I think they adjust the offense a little. Tom who takes place is a good running back But they get down to that game against the giants and the biggest difference. Play the game of the halfback option. From ornate. good sets up the only touchdown. So do they win that game against the giants in new york without owning. Who knows sixty five. I mean they struggled all year. Offensively just You know gig went through a stretch game. Do they could score a touchdown and then warnings again he had. He suffered that neck injury in sixty and that bothered him throughout his career. I even wonder in today's world if somebody wouldn't have told him he needed to retire. Much earlier kid but anyway sixty five. So they're down to baltimore second last week of the season there half a game. Behind in the standings two games left to go.

"Awhile. And he was phenomenal flashy back and. Amazing speed amazing movie opens the Barry Sanders You know that one year ran for almost three thousand yards for two touchdowns for Oklahoma state. I mean speaks volumes of the type of player he was He you know the thing about Barry Sanders was I mean I I I just I just I respect them I loved watching them play but. I. Always thought there was a bit of a better back to him. So changing my. View of him in the pros but as far as a college back, he's definitely in my top just a little bit outside the top five. Well. Yeah, and if you remember, he played behind Thurman Thomas and split carries with him and so just to think about what he didn't college having to having to sit behind Thurman and share carries with them there for a couple of years it's unbelievable and You can't really talk about You know who the best running back all time is without mentioning my number five and that's Jim Brown I mean I know I still think he's the greatest one of the greatest football players of all time and you know even though he was playing to sports at Syracuse he was an All American in nineteen, fifty, six, he ran for over nine hundred and eighty six yards in games He like you said got snubbed the heisman trophy when Paul Horneck one even though. The. Irish were had a losing rock record, but you know had that one game against colgate where he ran for one hundred and ninety seven yards and six touchdowns and lots of people don't remember. But Jim Brown was also the kicker for Syracuse and made seven extra points to score total of forty three points by himself in that game. So you can't can't talk about the greatest running backs in college without putting on the Jim. Brown there. Yeah I know I. Haven't seen them play but I mean, definitely he definitely I mean it'd be number one. You could be number one I mean to remember threes, and before he's definitely the best players ever might number five guy. Hey Bo knows. Bo Jackson Auburn forty three hundred yards forty three touchdowns. The legend of go. Oh, there's no bigger legend in the south. Didn't Bo Jackson and maybe bigger sports legend in. America. I'd say maybe Mohammed Ali and Michael Jordan. When you talk about American athletes Jim Thorpe I. mean he is mentioned in everybody's argument as the greatest athlete of all time in. American. History and bows just. What a player is it what if that gift didn't get injured in that game against Cincinnati who might have been in the hall of fame and both Canton and? Down I mean he had. He was he was probably the best players ever played those two sports at the same time. So my man was. Yeah. He was Derrick Henry before Derrick Henry, I mean just a big huge man but was also the fastest guy in the field a lot of times. So it was pretty amazing and you know I I loved watching Bo play and I actually have him as my number three number four is Barry Sanders and we already talked about him but I had to put him in my top five as well. So four as Berry. Sanders and then my number three is Bo Jackson so. Might number four, zero Campbell mind number three..

That's my answer for that one or the six point nine pass catcher who seemed to catch a touchdown every week in my Youth Herald Carmichael the 6-foot-9 I think he was six eight six nine. It's something like that they New York giants take it away Eddie Spaghetti the obvious one is lt lt needed they. They got a few this offseason but anonymously as good as Lt. If you want to non hall of fame or that I think would help a lot. This is their gambling right now and Mike remers at right tackle to move back to his national position be healthy if it doesn't work out then that's a big hole. Cream Mackenzie was like a pro bowl or the right tackle during their their <hes> super bowl years so I I mean it's it's a lame avas line answer but cream Kenzi is really good yeah. I guess it's not very much fun and who am I wait the quality of an offensive lineman. You haven't went to throw out any names air call. I've got to go ahead to kind of curveballs.

East here with the skins and the hall of Famer to good options here I think Darryl Green in that division with especially now that Herald Car Michael's catching passes for the Eagles Darryl Green is funny matchup one of the smaller guys trying to defend one of the bigger guys but I think he would fill L.. A. Need back there and on the other side <hes> non hall of well. Let's go hall of Famer yet. Have a hall of fame name here no one in particular this jumped off the tip of my toe but earlier well. They don't need John Reagan's you know the one thing they were Adrian Peterson and areas guys. They don't really need think it'd be good as you're too I do too. I mean he's every real good yeah especially again the big asterisk right now looming there for a team that could be sneaky. Good is Trent Williams better shell up doom. I was GONNA Dexter Manley. I like that one like I said I was telling you Eddie as a kid I remember sitting there watching the bears redskins game and Mike Tomczak and extra mainly were sharing a few words choice words on the field. I don't remember who's calling the game. I wish there was some way we find out but the guy was I. I don't think my deck summarily wants any part of my Tom Zach and even as a young child I knew he had I completely wrong Zak Yeah. I think if I put a wager on that I'm thinking I'm GonNa Dexter. Mainly I mean the scar tells the Tale Dexter mammy. You know come on you. He's no stranger to that sort of ups now. I'll tell you I mean you know I think they could add art. Monk would be nice. This is a hall of Famer and a Non Hall of Famer Sean Taylor. I mean that was the most highly regarded Guy I think in the twenty about as highly regarded a football players there has been in the twenty-first-century Yvonne Taylor if you could put him <hes> in that lineup they would be dangerous to the N._F._C. North we go and the packers some obvious ones here hall of fame guys that would fill some needs in twenty nine thousand nine Reggie White now. No Mike Daniels weird departure from Green Bay this week but Reggie white obviously is dominant a defensive lineman is the league's ever seen and then on the other side still some questions about who's going to be carrying the ball. Here's how you fix that not Jim. I'm Taylor Not Amman Green. If you WANNA go non hall of Fame Remind Green might be a nice ad but you know high end from a certain Era Paul Horneck the golden boy..

"Thank you. Anthony Rizzo, Jesse Rogers and we qualified a another person to go in the hopper for the trip to London at the Elliott Ortner of Batavia Carmen, your join us now studios. Thank you, Dan. He's Herman and Chris black boys low. Doing very well. How are you guys? We're good. It goes paying tribute to one of his favourite players today who died way too young. Billy Buckner my guy. You're always expressed a deep love of. Yep. But they traded him for nothing. Sided trade. Like I said they traded him for nothing washed up. I washed up outfielder did they get Stephen Avars? Yeah. So get got junk back for. For my guy, you know, the for Bill Matlock no-one Bill, Matlock left. Our guy came on board nineteen seventy six and Billy buck always ankles hurt didn't make a difference. He was always out there played with the black bat, most of the time to he mentioned, Bill Matlock. I went into the Glenview state Bank. This is years ago. And Bill Medlock is sitting at the desk. I'm waiting to fill out a form for a count, like that's Bill Matlock, but he's already retired and he's got checks because they didn't do direct deposit. Pittsburgh, Pirates San Francisco. Giants Chicago Cubs. He had deferred money smart off each contract, and he was still getting checks. And these were like I'm standing right there. He's talking to me, and I could see the checks. He's like, dude, I deferred money of every contract. So I don't ever have to work again for brilliant. Goodness. Envisage purchasing power on the dollar Mike again that damn push that thing in there that you go. There you go. Are we good? No. Something wrong with that. We gotta get that fixed boys. There you go. Go get that fixed. So anyway, Bill Matlock goes down as one of the Bill Matlock goes down. One of the great hitters. The sport has ever seen saying with Bill Buckner that guy won a batting title. He was a career three hundred hitter who eighty nine oh career because as a club three hundred maybe he's a cop. Yeah, he had his best years with the cubs in the late seventies and early eighties tremendous and John McNamara. The manager always made a defensive substitution in the ninth inning when they were leading for Bucker and that game, he did not do it. And then the ball gets hit to him at first goes under his glove. And bingo, I can't believe that story that, you know, he was telling a reporter. I don't remember who the reporter was like three weeks before the World Series started. That, that's the biggest fear. The nightmare is what happens if I think he even said, quote, like what? If the ball goes through your legs like nineteen days before freaky, foreshadowing, and premonition, did he have you have a bad nightmare of I mean, the whole thing, but it is too bad that he's remembered for that more than anything else. So we asked Rizzo about that. And he said, yeah, you take the field in game seven of the World Series. You know, the all the eyes of the world are on you. He goes, you got the one on one shoulder and the devil on the other like I've prepared as hard as I can just go out and play Ruutel most unfairly, criticized sports figure in modern sports history that you can think of him, and he's up there, man, I'll tell you who else to me is always. Thirty three years ago. I mean that was a long time ago. Yeah. But I mean like last yesterday he passes bottom line. It's the second item on there, which we had Anthony Rizzo on earlier. And he's like God disrespectful for for, for an athlete like the other guy to me, you know, obviously has been vilified unjustly, but that's different. Not an athlete, but Chris Webber to me is always a little bit under appreciated because like Buckner the one thing, people remember more than anything is the time out was the gaff Chris Webber was a fantastic player, not only in college, but in the NBA Chris Webber had some great years with Sacramento, when they were fifty fifty five win team, and he was a perennial all star. He was fabulous for a graph droplet and page and page and Bobby Jackson vodka in that whole crew. He was awesome. But what he won't most people think of. And what's the one thing that they're going to flash up there some day when they're doing Chris Webber calling the time out that he didn't have? Costing Michigan a chance to win the national title. But in nobody quite like Buckner when he did the curb your enthusiasm episode, I thought great. Davy. It was awesome that he was able to be sort of self deprecating. And a Reverend about the whole thing, it was a brilliant episode. If you haven't seen it, you could probably watch clips of it online, Larry David show on HBO, but it's well worth is the one where he shows up in it's they need. Yes. Out of the menu Larry leaves with him because they said they were upset that Bill Buckner was the whole thing was great. I'm a Red Sox money. It was the whole premise behind that episode was brilliant, and that he went along with it, and was so cool. They get really humanized him to a lot of people. And it's nice that Boston treated him so well late in his life to because what they have to complain about now. They've got four things, but it did. But they've got four World Series. They've got every year. Look, they're going to go. They got a chance to go from the Red Sox to the patriots. The Bruins it's sickening. So what do they have to be bitter about in Boston at, at this point? Nothing. So is nice. We were just watching the video earlier when he went back like in, when did he throw out the pitch when he went back to throw out that first pitch in the reception he received he was crying? Oh my God. He's walking in from the from the monster feel that he's wiping tears away from his is a Portnoy, shake thirteen thirteen titles of Boston Wednesday. Bruins thirteen titles in eleven years. Hoop. Id eleven think about that for you can't be rooting for the blues. No, I'm not really. I'm just hoping for good hockey good hockey game last night. I'm hoping about that hit by Tori crew was nice without a helmet on by the way. I like that. No helmet. I'm gonna just go ahead and blow. Somebody out there was a clean. Hey, what did you say? The guy's name was Edmonson. He crosschecks Pasternak in the chin Downey goes, he's holding his chin and then he hits him in the head again with the official standing right there and no second. The Stanley Cup final. I don't know. Chara got away with a slash late in the game penalty stick penalty. No sorry. The levels that are happening out there. It's brutal all levels of interference and they're not gonna call any of it, but it's out there and it's awful and bogs the game down. It doesn't have to be that way. It affects Saint Louis for chicken for Saint Louis. Got a formidable for check. But when guys are interfering with you, as you're coming down into the phone. It it's brutal. It does by the game down. But not to the point where I can't enjoy. I enjoy it last night. I like the pace of the game. I mean Saint Louis different team halfway through. Yes. I think if they don't respond and get that, for check going like they did in that first period. You're this might be a quick series could be I think Boston's I've been saying for weeks. And I think Boston's the team to be, but a lot of hockey to be played in Saint Louis. At some point, I think will win a Stanley Cup final game there over thirteen in their franchise history. They gotta be do voice series doesn't start taking home game. That's right. Saint Louis has got to be washed and held serve at home. Does not affect me one way or the other right? Yes. But I was held sir. I was very surprised. I had no idea. Bill Buckner was sick. And what a terrible disease that Greenberg did interview with him coming weeks ago. I saw Greenberg tweet that was ever posted the last interview, did you ever write something about it or wrote it, but he said he gave two answers? That's how are you? Not good. Unbelievable, man. And that's what, what Makita had right? It's so sad in tip for something like that. Sixty nine year old guy a former professional athlete. It's just I had no idea. He was sick. Very sad. I was stunned to hear that. So from Bart Starr to Billy Buckner star, very well for convey him Bob screen ski Forrest Gregg Jerry Kramer and fuzzy Thurston where the guys have kinda hung out the most Paul Hornig was up there too. But he didn't care about anyone else's cared about his fat. So I could see that cared about where he's getting his next meal from him. That's done the Paul Horneck to pick one guy. You're late all them out and said now pick the one guy that was a complete, you know what bag, I think I would have picked a number of times then I saw him in a hotel where I I was going back up for a game, and I say, Paul, how are ya John? You're great to see reminding him. I played for the boys from ninety one. Ninety five he didn't hear a word. I said pass me. It was looking at a fudgesicle. I might you know, like one of those guys should just got a fat coma. Yeah. And just that's all he saw food. And then his brain just turned off anything that was happening around them. It's gotta be hard, my second guess would have been forced Greg, because he's not well liked in these taken a person's right? So I'm not taking a personal shot. I'm not doing it, and I'm not taking a personal shot. That's not what I'm doing. But when I came upon them originally, I thought it was job at a hut. I can't take quick. It's not really that quick, but not to pull a cap. Or if you've heard the story before I got a fuzzy Thurston Paul Horning story back in the nineties mid nineties down in Fort Myers, and we would have a Sunday night show like all basically LA's. So guy we're working with says, I can get you fuzzy Thurston on the show, and we are always looking to kill fifteen minutes, tracheotomy. Yeah. So I did not know that. So, so it's a Sunday night and fuzzy shows up to the ABC affiliate for. Myers and parent. He's. He's he's big. And he's got the tracheotomy sits down in a chair, and we put the, the microphone next to the trick Ademi, so imagine fifteen minutes up. So we have that going for fifteen. But before we go on, here's my, aunt Dorothy live down in Florida. I. Hey who do you have on the show this week? I said, well, we've got fuzzy Thurston notch Thurston. You know, me and my girlfriend went on a date with fuzzy Thurston and Paul Horning back in the day. And it's really I said so live in Green Bay, your aunt. No. She she was a nurse out in California, and it was during a road trip. So anyways, I thought, well, we'll do one of these. This is your life type thing..

And the first ninety nine years of the National Football League only Tom Brady has more NFL titles in his resume than Bart star as a quarterback and star also holds the record, Ryan at least right now for the best passer rating in the postseason of any quarterback in league annals, if there's one game people remember about Bart star. It's the ice bowl the day where the Green Bay Packers won a third consecutive national football championship in unsurpassed achievement in the history of the NFL, and they did it with temperatures at twelve below zero. The thirty first nineteen sixty seven against the Dallas Cowboys most people remember the sneaky, of course, and we will. Dive into that. But what people forget, is that star didn't just deliver the final drive and the sneak to win that game against the Dallas Cowboys by the also threw both touchdown passes for the Packers that day it was a day where the Packers running game, literally was frozen the doomsday defense. One of the great defense in the history of pro football leading with hall of famers, stuffed Green Bay's, Ron attack.

"It's early November nineteen Ninety-one a warm sunny morning at the Atlanta Falcons training facility on team photo day. The players have a break from practice. So they're in a good mood. Joking around pulling pranks like fourth graders on their class picture day. The whole team is here. Five full rows of players with only one guy missing Brett Farr the falcons twenty two year old rookie quarterback drafted from southern Mississippi. The kid from tiny kill Mississippi sports, a five o'clock shadow seven days a week and is known for his locker room antics, sits part of its Sharm. Most of the guys love his Goto routine. Pretty sophisticated bit in which she talks to his butt crack in the shower. It kills again, a professional football team has a lot in common with a bunch of fourth grade, boys. But today the class clown is in cracking jokes because he's nowhere to be found at practice an hour goes by after the shoot finishes and sure enough a maroon Acura skids into the parking lot. Farther behind the wheel hoping nobody will notice the stale smell of cheap beer on his breath when he pulls into a parking spot and sees the photo shoot wrapping up. He mutters to himself. Amylase clock, by the way. This isn't the first time he's dragged himself in after the rest of the team. But lately falcons head coach Jerry Glanville hasn't gone easy on the rookie. Look coaches know that some players especially younger guys like to have a good time, but their coaches, they don't wanna be strict dads. Just don't bring it to work and think about how little a head coach wants to do that with a rookie benchwarmer the coach didn't want to draft in the first place Brett farve. Everybody farve seized his coach pulling out of the parking lot in his van, and he jumps out of his car to frantically wave him down Glanville slowly rolls his window down. Nothing. I could do trap Honda car. Coach mississippi. You are a car wreck Glanville shakes his head rolls his window up and pulls out of the parking lot. While mutters farve under his breath. Farve heard from a bartender buddy that coach Glanville. Stop by ask the staff to stop giving far free drinks far shook that one off. And so did his bartender, buddy. But coach has been gunning for him for weeks. Even nailed him last week when he tried to grab just a minute of shut I in a team meeting when Glenville closer to far of the coach looked into farve is to see if they were bloodshot kid. You're no kinda shape. You couldn't run the forty yard dash unless you saw case. But at the finish line far has admitted to himself that. Yeah. His loose fitting jeans are a lot tighter these days. He knows he belongs in the pros. But Glanville has an exactly give him a fair shake earlier in the season. He even explained too far that it take a plane crash to put farve into the game. So who gives it if a little late or if you order extra pitcher, it's not like he's getting any real playing time. Anyway. And farve knows his talent and arm strength aren't in doubt. But neither is ability to drink his way out of the NFL. So as the again disappointed coach pulls out of the parking lot far suspects. His falcons days might be numbered turns out there's actually another team eager to take that chance on far. If you're looking to build a website, but you've been putting it off.
