Bring Back Francoooooo!!

A player can't gain over 12,000 yards in his career by running out of bounds.

excellent first post


Franco may've stepped out-of-bounds when near the sideline, but only-after he had gained the yardage needed, and he saved himself from numerous unnecessary hits & injuries
had he not suffered what I recall to be a late-hit / cheap shot against Baltimore (Joe Earhmann jumped on an already-prone Harris?) in the '76 playoffs and missed the AFC Championship Game the following week, 'em Stillers probably would've won SB11, too

I grew-up enjoying seeing films of Jim Brown, and watching Larry Csonka bulldoze defenders, and the neanderthal in me wished to see Harris do that on-occasion, but it was also nice to see a healthy #32 week-in & week-out, too

Yes, Franco stayed healthy, but I would still have taken Bettis in his prime for this season. Back on topic.
