Jack Tatum

I see that Jack Tatum has passed away.

I remember the Stingley incident, although I was living in New England at the time.

I don't remember much about the Immaculate Reception, but I've seen a million replays.

Jack Tatum was as controversial as they get, but he stood up for what he believed in and didn't try to pretend he was somebody he wasn't. That was very much a different generation of the NFL; it's quite a different form of sport now. I don't want to go back to those days, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't remember them.
