To sweep up all the Lions records he keeps shattering.
YOU DO REALIZE HE POSTS ON OUR BOARD, HE GOES UNDER THE NAME OF @BigNatty
ONLY IF HE’S BEEN POSTING SINCE HE WAS 3. BIG NATTY HAS BEEN HERE FOREVER.
PS: TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK, HOMIE.
My apologies, when at work we are forced to use caps.
LOL. Ya got me!
Exactly. 2nd most passing yards
*Due to a dropped pass that hit the receiver in the hands…and would have SHATTERED the record.
So excited to have our punter. You guys will laugh your asses off when I show up in a Fox Jersey.
No we won’t.
I have never heard of that, what do you do for work??? I’m genuinely curious
It’s gotta be something where they’re using a legacy system or something.
Believe it or not, our program is DOS based. Must do all our commands in caps.
It’s Navy shit
Wow, even the Michigan SOS upgraded from DOS prompt punctuation hell to windows last year.
Whelp, beats rum, buggery and the lash, I suppose…
Calm down bro. Pff has him rated as the 16th best punter so how good could he really be? Their grading system is flawless!
LOL - my sentiments exactly.
Time to hit the brakes…He didn’t make the Pro Bowl or reach All-Pro status…Them’s the Facts…
He’s only been kicking for the Lions for 2 years. He’s got a long way to go to displace Hof Gold Jacket - Punter Yale Lary…Lary played 3 positions - Safety, Punter, Return Specialist and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979 and was also selected for the NFL 1950s All-Decade Team.
Lary played 11 seasons in the NFL, all with the Detroit Lions, from 1952 to 1953 and from 1956 to 1964, missing the 1954 and 1955 seasons due to military service as an Army second lieutenant in Korea. He played Safety, Punter, & Return Specialist.t) positions, appeared in nine Pro Bowl games, and was a first-team All-NFL player five times. He led the NFL in punting three times, and at the time of his retirement in 1964, his 44.3-yard punting average ranked second in NFL history, trailing only Sammy Baugh. He also totaled 50 NFL interceptions for 787 return yards, both of which ranked fifth in NFL history at the time of his retirement.
He died on Thursday, May 11, 2017. Pro Football Hall of Fame safety Yale Lary passed away on Thursday night at the age of 86. The Texas A&M product was a fixture in the Detroit Lions secondary during an 11-year career (1952-53, 1956-1964) that was interrupted by his service in the U.S. Army.
Love ya, Lary. I’m sure you were a great man. Cool to make the pro bowl as a punter AND safety.
Also…Not Jack Fox.
I’m not putting Fox in the HOF, if he retired today…How-evuh…this dude rolls out another 10 years of what he’s doing now, he’s easily the best punter ever.
When Lary played, there were a ton of guys playing both ways, football wasn’t as nationally networked, football was much smaller, etc, etc, etc. Humans are bigger and stronger now, etc. I DO think ppl should be judged against their own era. Dude’s numbers as a punter were solid (only 6 yards/punt behind Fox on average).
What would happen if we put Barry Sanders into that era? Suh? you get the idea. Love the story and the dude you posted about, but he was playing when LBs were my size, guys played both ways, and an average person probably didn’t even know what the NFL was.
I truly do love this story about Lary Yale.
Wanna make sure to honor him.
Still not pumping the Brakes on Fox though. LOL
Depends on what you’re into…
