    Tough day for fans of the modern NFL. Coryell was really the father of modern, wide open offense we see so many places now.

    From what I know, he lived a good life. And 85 ain't bad. May the football gods smile on him for bringing Air Coryell to the NFL. Watching Fouts and Chandler and the others was a treat for those of us that like air shows. Plus, he brought us Joe Gibbs

    RIP
