Now announcing for the NBWA! www.wdws.com home of DWS Sportsnight and downstate radio home of thecubsfan!
Jerry Kramer was on the radio yesterday talking about Max. They were commiserating at an outing a few weeks ago. Max would lament 'Everyone knows me for one game. I was pretty good beyond that game.' Jerry would retort 'Hell, everyone remembers me for one block!'
I'll second that. The job he did with so many injuries, getting that team to that status...I tip my cheesehead to Bill Belichick. Well done. See you in Houston, Bill...to do the J-O-B to Brett Favre once again. :-)
