Mark & I had the same priest marry us at our weddings.So,naturally,we started to have a discussion about Father Maurice (Yes & Father Mo was 6-4 270 huge,funny man who was a parish priest at Notre Dame). People behind behind me started screaming for me to move on & at that point Mark stood up, said "Hey,I'm talking to this man,let's be patient!" At that point complete silence entered the room-he was/is a commanding presence! We ended our conversation,he signed my mini-helmet and told me to say hello to father Mo!
One of the truly great Giants.

What a great player and an admirable man. I just hope he never suffers from CTE.

Tough as nails, great hands and blocked like a tackle.

That was a great piece on him. I've seen it a few times.

I only hope his book was actually fiction. It was far too dark.
Matt, Thanks before hand, but could you explain

how his book went 'dark'. I know I'll never have the time to read it, but your comment peeked my curiosity. :)

Today donít have one ounce of that toughness that those teams had everything about those teams started with being tough and physical. We may not have won a lot of games but every opponent felt a great deal of pain after the game. I been blessed to see some of the toughest NFL players ever perform for my teams Larry Csonka, LT, Harry Carson and Mark Bavaro.
