    Maybe it was your doubt that inspired Poz to work hard enough to make it as an All American and NFL football player.

    I love that photo, it's like those old school football photos where everyone was throwing, punting, or evading a tackle

    He would be a great addition to someone's HS staff with the family. Or, since it was posted he has $51 million in earnings, lay low and enjoy as much time with family as possible.
    Just a hunch, but he would be a heck of a speaker. Talk about his work ethic, why he did what he did, long years in Buffalo and early Jacksonville, but it all worked out for him in the end.

    You know you are getting really old when guys who played at Penn State when you were considered "old" are retiring.

    I remember watching Hopewell in the WPIAL final at Heinz Field. They ran every play behind a big offensive line. Every play. Not one pass. The other team knew they were going to run and they couldn't stop them. In watching Paul that night I thought he's too light to play linebacker at Penn State. So glad I was proven wrong.

    I saw the Steelers play at Jacksonville a few years ago and the Jags fan next to me said they absolutely loved Poz down there. Great letter he wrote and easy to see why he's so well liked. I remember the Ohio State game in '05 and he was like a heat-seeking missile in on seemingly every tackle sideline-to-sideline.

    My all-time favorite PSU player. Hence the avatar pic.

    One of my all time great PSU memories - my son and I were given field passes for the last home game of 2006 - Michigan State. This was Poz's last home game and this is when after the game, Poz circled Beaver Stadium giving high fives around the entire stadium.

    My son and I stood in the South End Zone ramp and watched him walk right around, up and right past us... still gives me goose bumps. And I wanted to reach out to him as well, but didn't... I think I knew that he just wanted to reflect upon this incredibly emotional scene...

    Can still remember him picking off Indiana- for a pick six his true freshman or red shirt freshman year- wearing No. 39, time flies. One of the all time best at PSU.

    This is bullshit.. After the Browns fail to draft Barkley at 1, I was going to be a jags fan. I was going to buy a Robinson jersey but that went out the window yesterday.Then Puz was going to be my jersey.. .. Now that's gone too. Is Odrick still with them?

    I remember some games where it seemed like he made every freaking tackle. Dude just couldn't be blocked.
