"Dick Lebeau and Paul Warfield are life-long friends and competitors"

These guys were playing pro ball when I first began watching football as a kid.  Best of the best without question. And I've seen that undercut many times in my memories.  Could not believe he hung onto the ball and continued to play.  My heart broke when he left Cleveland.  So I began watching Miami.  But back then all the games were not on TV every week.

Also always wanted Paul Brown to go get Lebeau.  Always thought he should not be in Detroit.  Don't remember why, but never liked Detroit.  I probably had somehow convoluted the fact that the Cincinnati Royals got to draft folks like Oscar and Lucas because of proximity.  So Cleveland should of had Lebeau.  Never mind that would likely have removed Brown!  

BTW, did you notice when Warfield was blocking Lebeau, it was a Brown running play?  Apparently Buckeye WRs were always complete players!!!

The star givers have made a place for themselves.  And they tend to get it right.  But they are far from infallible.

Not every young person grows at the same rate.  There are many that move closer to their potential later than star rating time.  Overall Ohio State has historically done a fine job finding these folks.

Wise advice!  

Another, "getting old sucks, but it beats all the known alternatives" was told to me many, many years ago when I wasn't.

And another, "don't worry, be happy".  

Just go with it, eventually I learned to fall back asleep.  It took damn near a decade, but it happened.

And finally, learn to just enjoy your witticisms when they do happen.  Old folks giggling is cool.  We don't have to give a damn what anyone else thinks.

Very well stated!  He definitely deserves to be on any list.  

We all get an opinion.  Archie would always be my first choice.  But the folks they chose were excellent as well.  At the end of the day, this list does not amount to a hill of beans.  Their opinion is no more important than anyone else's.  

Archie will always be loved in Ohio and respected by all that know of him.  

He would also be in contention for his off the field life!
