R.I.P. Merlin; I got to see him terrorize QBs in the late 60's. I remember the "Fearsome Foursome" when I was a kid. They always played great against my Colts. They punished QBs with all kinds of hits that are not legal in today's game. I wish the no rules of those days still applied today. The game was so much more violent, I loved to see quarterbacks get hammered. Well Sonny Jurgensen got hammered many ways, but that's another story. That's one of the reasons I became a fan of the game. Those violent hits are outlawed today. God Bless you Merlin and prayers to your family. Thank you for contributing to my love of the NFL.
