On Don Coryell

New, comments

With the passing of former San Diego Chargers head coach Don Coryell, it made me remember back when I became a football fan in 1980. At first I was a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers (obviously), but then I spent hours pouring over an NFL stat book and grew to admire the Chargers under head coach Don Coryell. They were the offensive powerhouse of the early 1980s. In 1980, from Pro Football Reference, they were led by Pro Bowl QB Dan Fouts and featured THREE 1st-team All-Pro receivers.

And if you ever get a chance to watch The Epic in Miami re-played on NFL Network, watch it. That game lives up to it's name.
