Well, Seattle’s Ray Willis does have a reputation for being a rough-and-tumble sort, and if you’re looking for a candidate to be entangled in the first tussle of training camp, Willis is probably a good place to start.

Well, he’s got a soft side away from the field, and I couldn’t help but laugh after watching this advertisement.

One of the first marketing victories scored by the NFL in my life was a yellow jersey, No. 75 purchased by my parents because of my affection for the Coca-Cola advertisement featuring Pittsburgh’s “Mean” Joe Greene.

Well, I guess actually it wasn’t a true marketing coup since it was not an NFL product, just a generic No. 75 with no team or player name.
