Mongo just pawn in game of life.

IIRC, he was also one of the heavies in Against All Odds with Jeff Bridges and. . . some babe.

I am very sorry to hear this. RIP Alex.

I do hope the family decides to do a brain pathology study which would help further research linking multiple concussions to the development of dementia later in life.

Don't forget Monday Night Football from '74-'76.

He was a naturally funny man. I liked it when he was on Johnny Carson explaining the 63 yard field goal.

Then the goal post were on the goal line. The way he told how he wanted to really get in there and see a guy kick a field goal from the 34 yard line the wrong way.:rofl:
