Pride: Ironhead, RIP
One of my favorite NFL players in the catagory of "Never played for the Packers" died Saturday.
Craig "Ironhead" Heyward was one of the early "big backs". He was a force from the backfield and had good hands. He could bring the pain with or without the ball in his hands. His playing weight was very close to my own playing weight, the only problem was I was an offensive/defensive lineman and he was a running back.
He died too soon, at age 39.
