    How can you watch a video without the wonderful tones of rap? He threw some picks I see at the end something like 253 INT to 290 TDs. He was at the end of his career when I became old enough to watch football and since he was generally AFC I never remember seeing him on TV, but the older kids wanted to be him in our youth pickup games.

    Since we were reminiscing about great White defensive ends from the earlier part of this century in the Week 13 thread, I dug up a couple videos on two greats from the 1980s, Mark Gastineau and Keith Millard.

    Gastineau was the J.J. Watt of his era, the early and mid-1980s. He is also a good example of a very successful White player who was widely despised, mostly because of his flamboyant celebrations after sacks. When Blacks celebrate, including entire defenses after a turnover, it's entertaining, but a White player can only celebrate modestly otherwise he becomes hated very quickly. Gastineau had 20 sacks in '81, 19 in '83 and a record 22 in '84 that was later broken (thanks to Brett Favre) by Michael Strahan. He was also part of the 3/4 White "Sack Exchange," one of the best defensive lines in NFL history. Joe Klecko of the Sack Exchange had 20.5 sacks in '81, half a sack more than Gastineau.

    Keith Millard's career was shortened by knee injuries, but he was a helluva a pass rusher, especially in 1989 when he terrorized quarterbacks by getting 18 sacks.

    Charley Hennigan was one of the finest wide receivers to ever play in the NFL. He played in the 1960's when passing was not as popular as it has become
    over many decades now. He was a all star level player with incredible athletecism and talent. He was the first receiver to ever have 100 receptions in a
    season. Even in 2021 almost 2022 now, Hennigan still has the 6th most yards in a season in NFL History! Amazing player. Here's an interview!
