Tonight, Walter Jones is entering the NFL Hall of Fame.
What a great story! This guy comes from a family that had nothing, and now he’s a Hall-of-Famer.
And BSP sure remembers Walter Jones. Despite being an opponent of my favorite team, Jones is one of those guys who makes you appreciate the players who play in the NFL, regardless of uniform.
Before Super Bowl XL, Joey Porter got into some ridiculous pissing match with Seattle tight end Jerramy Stevens. Unfortunately for Porter, he had to deal with Walt Jones on the field. While he talked a lot, Porter was pretty much walled off that day.
As were most of his opponents. What a devastating force; he was powerful yet amazingly nimble for a big man. He could play it any way you wanted to play, and win.
Wow, was Super Bowl XL a dubious result or what? I didn’t want Seattle to win but they should have.
