    Good ol' no. 90, Ezra Johnson. Last preseason game and he "was hungry".

    What NFL record did Lynn Howard (GBP 1921-22) hold for 85 years?

    Right you are!

    Lynn Howard?

    That's a toughy, I have never heard of the guy...but I'll say...um...most fumble recoveries in one season....?

    That's Lynn in the front row with lettered jersey farthest to the right, showing his hip pads.

    He lived in my home town when I was growing up. Great, great guy.

    Hint: his record was broken by Albert Haynesworth in 2006.

    First of all, a fantastic picture!

    I am just wild *** guessing here...but most tackles in a season?

    (Actually when I thought of Haynsworth, I thought of "biggest a-hole of all time"...but then I figured out there were too many Viqueens that could have stolen that record...)

    Old School, good guess. Here's the answer:

    www.CentralFloridaPackerBackers.com Oct. 2006

    The NFL suspended Titans’ tackle Albert Haynesworth for a total of fivegames,
    the longest suspension ever in the history of the NFL.
    Last week in Tennessee, 6-foot-6, 320-pound Haynesworth knocked off
    Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode's helmet, then kicked and stomped his
    face. Gurode needed 30 stitches to repair the cuts left by the tackle's cleats.
    Haynesworth’s five-game suspension eclipsed the previous record which was
    held by Packers’ back Lynn “Tubby” Howard for almost 85-years. Howard
    was suspended for three-weeks after he “kilt a Bahr” with his Winchester rifle
    during the fourth-quarter of a game against Chicago in November of 1922.


    Lynn Howard, great man. He's now taking care of things in heaven.

    I think Lynn was simply returning the favor to the Bears. This is from NFL Preview 2010 | Predictions & Projections | NFL Touchdown

    Green Bay Packers Vs. Chicago Bears - Great Moments From a Classic Rivalry

    September 11, 2009 by Al Bracco | Packers vs Bears, Packers vs. Bears History, Packers vs. Bears Rivalry

    [​IMG]
    In the very first meeting between the Packers and the Bears in 1921, there was a single moment that would foretell a future of heated battles. Chicago’s John (Tarzan) Taylor threw a sucker punch that broke the nose of Packers tackle Howard Buck. It would prove to be the opening salvo in what became a long and tenuous rivalry between Green Bay and Chicago.

    PRS, I read an article of Bracco's some time ago where he suggested TT trade down in the draft, and I think that's what will happen if the draft is as deep as they say it is.

    Isn't that something you get at Pizza Hut?

    I thought it was still little known Al Schuster...beside holding the clipboard, TT has him selling hot dogs in section 31...

    My son ( YoungSchooFan) knew this as he was playing "Call of Duty" on his computer...

    According to YSF,( a huge Levens fan) Levens was drafted in the 5th round out of Georgia Tech.
    YSF also claims he started his career at Notre Dame...

    Speaking of schools and round drafted, which Packer & Pro Football Hall of Famer was a 17th round draft choice out of the Crimson Tide?
