One of the greatest minds in NFL history has passes away

I will say a prayer for him, his family and his football family tonight.

A great man who will be missed

Rest in Peace Jim

I read a couple of tributes to him and learned some stuff I hadn't known.

For instance, he was out of work, having just been fired from another NFL team, when Andy Reid asked him to join the Eagles' staff.

Also, he went into the pros after he was passed over for the Notre Dame job.

He was the logical choice on the staff and was passed over in favor of Gerry Faust, who ND plucked straight from the high school ranks, a move that was unheard of and remains that way at least in part to Faust's showing as Irish coach.
