Re: i just heard Merlin Olsen has died..
Some more great quotes about one of the greatest Rams:
"God doesn't create perfect men, but he came mighty close when he brought us Merlin Olsen. He personified the Greek ideal of a sound mind in a sound body. I seriously doubt that I shall ever meet another who will measure up to his complete character.''
-- Dick Enberg, the longtime TV partner of Olsen, after the Hall of Fame defensive tackle died of cancer on Thursday.
"We use the term 'great' way too much in this society,'' his teammate, defensive end Jack Youngblood, told me Saturday. "But you can put it in capital letters in front of his name. You could not confuse him, you could not overpower him, and you could not block him consistently.''
