I think that all of the CQ community knows that I am a rabid Pittsburgh Steeler fan by now and have been since I was a kid. One of the pleasures of that long history of fanaticism is that I got to focus not only on some great Steelers players like Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swann, Franco Harris (and today's greats like Jerome Bettis, Hines Ward, and many others) but also on the outstanding players that lined up on the other side of the ball. I'd root against them, of course, but it's hard not to respect and enjoy players like Chris Collinsworth, Earl Campbell -- was there ever a running back like Earl? -- and one of the classiest men on the field, Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Sipe. Sipe may have been the one NFL player I recall from that generation that most deserved a shot at the championship but never got there, in part because of the Steeler dominance and in part due to some cruel twists of fate.
Addendum: I'd run my favorite picture of Hugh here, but I don't want to disillusion Brian Sipe, just in case he stops by and reads this post. Shhhh .....Sphere It View blog reactions
