Pillars of the NFL: George McAfee

In our Pillars of the NFL: Coaches Who Have Won Three or More Championships we cover the ten greatest NFL coaches of all-time.  Close to home, is George Halas, the father of the NFL and the Bears.  In Pillars, we also include a little on the coaches players and we'd  thought we'd reproduce some of that for our posts. 


Hall of Famer George McAfee was an all-around great back who could run as well as receive; pass when called upon; and return kickoffs and punts.  As a defensive back, he had 25 interceptions.  He was always a threat to score whenever and wherever he got his hands on the ball.  No one will know how good McAfee would have been because he served in the military during his prime playing years, age 24-26.
