This is a tragedy for anyone, but it hits harder when it's someone who was a part of one of fondest memories of your time as a sports fan.

Weeb Ewbank and his staff made a bold move with the offensive line (I can't remember if it was late in the season or actually right ahead of the Super Bowl).

Herman was a very good starting guard and they had a rookie tackle (last name Walton and I think his first name was Sam) who struggled and they were about to face Bubba Smith, who was a feared D-lineman for the Colts.

They benched Walton, moved Herman out to tackle and put Bob Talamini, who was a past-his-prime former AFL All-Star veteran guard, into the starting lineup. Herman neutralized Smith and that helped win the Super Bowl.

Dave Herman later spent several years as the color man on Jets radio broadcasts, so he was an articulate student of the game.
