Your daily (not World Cup but rather) football update of the day

No matches until Friday so we're in the clear to blog about the other football.

Were he alive, Walter Payton would probably be wondering just what all the fuss was about regarding the "wildcat" formation since he was doing it 25 years ago.

Actually, it appears that injuries to its quarterbacks forced the Bears' hand to insert Payton at quarterback rather than any specific game plan.

And though it resulted in an interception, check out the heave by Payton at the 4:50 mark. About 54 yards by our estimation. Not too shabby for one of the greatest running backs of all-time.

Cornelius Greene, quarterback at Ohio State University from 1972 through 1975 had style I always thought would shake up the NFL. That style of football needs to make a comeback.
