    Johnny Rogers? Bo? Hershell? Prime Time?

    Young shouldn’t be No. 1, no way.

    HP was only adding to Murphy’s list. Hershel was #4, though Bo, PrimeTime, and Rodgers are on neither list.

    I can’t argue with Vince as #1 though. I wonder about Dick Butkus and LT though. I wasn’t around for Butkus, but I never heard of LT, as great as he was, until the draft. I find it hard to believe that linebackers could be the “most thrilling” players; they just don’t see the ball enough.
