RIP Jim Taylor, HoF RB Green Bay Packers
Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:53 am
  • Jim Taylor passed away this morning. He was 83 years old.

    He was one tough SOB on a football field. I grew up a Bears fan and cringed every time we played the Packers. They were the cream of the crop during the 60s... almost unbeatable. I was born in '49 so I remember him well.

    RIP Jim. You were one of the best to play the game.

  • Oh wow. That stinks. I wonder if they will check for CTE. Seems like they only check when a tragedy happens. I've heard some people believe that CTE comes from the lifestyle, such as heavy alcohol consumption.

    Here's to one of the best.

  • He was the only player besided Jim Brown to win a league rushing crown when Jim Brown was active. RIP.

    Considering that the 'T' stands for Traumatic (as in 'caused by a trauma') I imagine that alcohol might contribute if you get drunk and fall down a lot. Otherwise I'm not so sure.

    Not to derail the thread, Jim Taylor was a guy I watched on a tiny little black-and-white TV in my extreme youth when I was just starting to watch sports with my Dad and older brother and couldn't imagine a football team ever coming here. This is a bummer, but at 83 he at least had a long life. RIP
