A fitting tribute to one of the greatest, not only as a player but as a human being. A pity he didn't live long enough to see himself make it into the Hall of Fame as he surely will.

To the only Packer I've truly liked to my remembrance. He was one of of those people you couldn't help but like. No better way to explain his career, his life, and his faith than inspirational. Here is a man everyone, no matter your age, your race, your religion, your profession, can learn something from. Rest in Peace Reggie White. You deserved better, but you will always be remembered just as much for what you did on the field as a Hall of Famer as you will by your off the field work as a Legend. God bless.

I hope Philadelphia gives him the same honors too. Never will be another #92.

I've never seen anybody else pick people up and sling them around like Reggie did ...

"Although the hump move will forever be linked to White - especially today as the NFL mourns his loss - he really didn't invent the technique. During the mid-'80s, White picked up the move from former Oakland Raiders defensive end Howie Long. White studied game films of Long and added the hump to his arsenal.

"I thought it was the most awesome move I'd ever seen," White told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Howie could get up under a guy's armpit. I can do that, too, but I also get up on his shoulders and club him."

The club and hump...what a combo of moves. Take a 300#er and toss em outta the way like they were nothing.
