It was great to see the Eagles induct Al Wistert into their Ring of Honor at halftime of yesterday's game against the Chiefs. I interviewed Al at his Oregon home for Last Team Standing, my book about the 1943 Phil-Pitt Steagles. He couldn't have been nicer. Al is 89 now, but still in good enough shape to make the long trip to the East Coast and back. He was one of the great tackles in NFL history, and deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
