Happy # 81 Jim Brown


Who remembers Jim Brown carrying the ball many years ago?   I do and it's a shame that it ended so quickly, as Tim Layden wrote:    
To his football heirs—from Barry Sanders to Adrian Peterson—he’s the one player by which their own greatness is measured. To those who played with and against the Cleveland Browns legend, his prowess, intensity and intellect remain awe-inspiring. Fifty years after walking away from the game at his peak, he still towers over the NFL. Yes, he was just that good.
Yes, he was that good or better that great!

The stats are unbelievable:   He rushed for 13,112 yards in 118 games plus 108 TD's.    He averaged 104.3 per game!

Yes, it's true that today's game is more about passing than rushing.   Nevertheless, those numbers stand on their own.
