George Perles, former head coach of Michigan State, and Chuck Noll's D-line coach and eventually DC passed away at age of 85. Article says he created the stunt 4-3 but I thought that was Joe Greene. Probably a collaborative effort. If anybody has an answer post it please.

Sam's best statistical season was as a Bengal in 1969 when he filled in for Greg Cook.
