    1. The first football team I ever knew.

    2. Huff one of the GOATs for sure. The first of the modern Middle Linebackers. Nitschke & Butkis & Lanier quick to follow and carry it forward.

    3. I'm trying to think of the rest of that D. Andy Robustelli, right? And a guy named Patton maybe?

    4. For those NYG's I'd have to look it up. Was a Unitas & Colts fan in those olden days, so my recollection very limited. Here was Y.A. back then, his last game in Pittsburgh at ol' Pitt Stadium. Famous photo. The story:

      Bill Saul was the Steelers MLB. Myron Pottios was the other iconic MLB from that era, mentioned in that article. Jack Lambert came along to Pittsburgh and as a rookie MLB helped take them to their 1st SB. Another GOAT in that modern NFL MLB lineage, though Lambert played way beyond his weight as a frightening and formidable force in the middle. Elway has a great story of entering into his first regular season game and looking up over center into the de-toothed vampirish visage of Jack:

      "Hall of Famer John Elway perfectly described the fear that Lambert put into quarterbacks. As a rookie, in Elway’s very first game, he had to face the vaunted Steelers defense with Lambert snarling at him from across the line. 'He had no teeth, and he was slobbering all over himself,' recalled Elway. 'I’m thinking, You can have your money back, just get me out of here. Let me go be an accountant. I can’t tell you how badly I wanted out of there.'”
