  3. I had an opportunity to get tickets for tonight’s game, sitting in the same location of my old season tix, but alas I will be watching it from home. I’m still babysitting the dog with the bad knee. Let’s hope the Raiders play some of the young kids tonight, we already know which veterans suck. I want to see more of RB Latavius Murray & WR Brice Butler.
    **A new “What’s New in Vintage Video” is coming soon (sneak preview: Billy Kilmer vs. Fran Trakenton 1973!!)

  4. Is ray guy the only kicker in the hall?

  5. Ray Guy is the only “pure” punter in the Hall of Fame, but he isn’t the first kicker in the Hall. Former Kansas City Chiefs place-kicker Jan Stenerud was previously elected. There have also been other players elected into the Hall that played other positions as well as kicking, such as George Blanda (QB & place-kicker) & Sammy Baugh (QB & punter).
