Banaszak is one of my all time favorite players. He was truly a blue collar player that worked harder at his position than anyone did.

Get well , and get your butt home John.

Not only a good player, but a funny guy. He was roaster for the Lynn Swann Roast (Blount's annual thing), and was pretty funny. At one point, he looked a Swanni and said, "I was surprised to learn that you had ran for Governor ............ and apparently so were millions of other Pennsylvania voters."

Get well, John.

Totally agree. He was always one of my favorites to. I wish him the best and hope he recovers soon.
