I've watched everyone of them play. Oscar Reed played from 168-1974, Brown from 1979-1986 & Bess from 1982-1987.

You must be pretty young if you don't remember Rufus Bess.

Oscar Reed & Rufus Bess are old friends, Bess used to take a small part in an organization that Reed and friend/teammater Earsall Mackbee used to run with innercity children during training camp.
I've met all 3 of the guys, all 3 are very nice, I've worn Reed's NFC Championship ring a couple times (can almost fit two fingers in it).
Bess is a hellarious guy, i've sat with him during a picnic after training camp a couple years back, and the stories he had about\Bud Grant almost had a few of us in tears laughing.
