    Hasn't Folk missed more field goals in his career than Parkey?

    I was worried he was going to retire after the last game and those misses - which would have been a lousy way for the future HOFer to go out.

    Is Vinatieri going to start carrying a staff and stone tablets out on the field? Because once that white beard started growing out, man, it looked like he'd seen the burning bush.

    Saw him play quarterback. For the Houston Oilers. At Rice Stadium against the Boston Patriots.

    He was my dude growing up. Remember those variety packs of cereals that came in little boxes? My brother and sisters would always go for the sugary stuff first - I went for Product 19 because Blanda endorsed it.

    There are probably a few people still alive who saw him play for the Bears, or for Bear at Kentucky.

    Would love to see him make it to 2020 so he can join the Four Decade club. Him and Phil Dawson can both do it if they play two more years.

    Sad day. One of my all-time favorite players to watch. See you in Canton.

    I still owe Southern Nash head football coach Ray Davis a letter of apology. As sports editor of the Telegram, I chose the quarterback from a rival school who led his team to the North Carolina 1-A state championship as our Player of the Year over Peppers during his senior year (he had won the award three consecutive times). I told Ray, "Julius will play more at the Dean Dome than he will at Kenan Stadium." Boy did I ever blow that prediction.

    Peppers was a running back, defensive lineman and PUNTER in high school. He was already 6-5 as a freshman and a dominating post player in basketball. He also ran track. One of those "once in a lifetime" kind of kids you know has Hall of Fame written all over him at 15.
