I always pretended to be Gerald McNeil when I was growing up and playing football in the backyard, mainly because we were each built more for being horse jockeys than running back kickoffs. I loved how his helmet looked five sizes too big and how the Browns probably had to borrow a uniform from a Pee Wee league to suit McNeil up.

1852 career kickoff return yards, 1717 career punt return yards, 1 Pro Bowl, 5-foot-7, and born in Frankfurt, Germany.
