Steve Van Buren passes away at 91

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Steve Van Buren, the square-jawed Hall of Fame running back who led the Philadelphia Eagles to NFL titles in 1948 and 1949, has died. He was 91.

The Eagles said Van Buren died Thursday in Lancaster, Pa., of pneumonia.


Full Story

Today, the Eagles as an organization and football as a whole had to say goodbye to an all time great. Nowhere close to old enough to have seen him play, but I've seen highlights, and heard him interact with McCoy after Van Buren's record was broken, and he was extraordinarily graceful and classy as could be about it. All accounts said he was a great person, humble, encouraging, and a model to anyone. My sincerest condolences to the Van Buren family. :-/

RIP Steve. May you attack what lies beyond with the fervor which you attacked the football field. :,-(
