Pillars of the NFL: Paddy Driscoll

In Patrick McCaskey's Pillars of the NFL: Coaches Who Have Won Three or More Championships he covers 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.

A contemporary of George Halas, Paddy Driscoll had a knack for playing his best when the two faced off against each other on the field.  Hall of Famer Driscoll was an excellent team leader and played in the backfield at quarterback and halfback.  He was also one of the best dropkickers and punters in the league when he played in the 1920s.  He played the last four seasons of his 10-season career with his friend and adversary, George Halas and the Chicago Bears.
