Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood
Sports Fan Insider
Jack Youngblood, a Hall of Fame Los Angeles Rams defensive end, joined Baltimore’s 105-7 THE FAN Thursday morning to discuss his time in the NFL after he broke his leg and played through it for multiple games, including the playoffs and Pro Bowl.
He then moves on to mention ESPN’s list of Top 20 Coaches of all time and some potential snubs from the list.
Youngblood claimed that he never regretted anything that he did in his career. He then talked about the recent passing of Deacon Jones and what it was like to have him as a mentor after being drafted by the Rams. Youngblood then brings up his involvement with retired players from the NFL and adverse effects they may face after playing in the league.
When asked if he agrees with Bernard Pollard that pro football will not be around in 30 years, he says “The physics of the game are what they are…you can’t stop the physics of a concussion.” However, he thinks the game will be around for a very long time.
