    He certainly was before my time. But he sounded like one tough SOB. Green Bay Packers power sweep!

    As a young boy I spent countless hours reading about the history of the NFL. I was always intrigued with Lombardi's Packers, probably because they won the first two SBs.

    To say Taylor was the greatest Fullback is someone who clearly does not realize that Jim Brown was also a Fullback in those same years.

    Who read the article? The author, Michael Cohen, notes:

    Comparisons between Taylor and Jim Brown, star fullback for the Cleveland Browns, were quite popular, and Lombardi offered the following assessment: “Jim Brown will give you that leg and then take it away from you. Jim Taylor will give it to you and then ram it through your chest!”

    Who do you guys see as the ten greatest fullbacks in NFL history? Certainly the position is pretty much completely different in the modern era than what it used to be when it was often a focal point of a team's offense.
