RIP Jim Brown

Brown, who led the Browns to the NFL championship in 1964, was undoubtedly one of the greatest athletes of the 20th century. Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, Brown retired as the NFLís all-time leading rusher (12,312 yards) after earning eight unanimous first-team all-pro selections and nine Pro Bowl honors during nine NFL seasons. A four-time NFL MVP and eight-time rushing champ, he averaged 104.3 rushing yards per game Ė and never missed a game.

One of the benefits of being my age is that I was able to watch games in which he played. He was truly a phenomenal athlete. Requiescat in Pace Mr. Brown.
