    All the stories I've seen on him today seem to focus more on the Stingley situation and not enough on his career.

    RIP Assassin.

      He was a fine player. And as hardcore in the game he loved as any. He had few equals in his positon for guts and determination.

          Jack Tatum was a Buckeye first and foremost. RIP, Jack.

            I heard an interview this morning with his teammate, Phil Villapiano on NFL Radio. Apparently, Tatum regretted naming his book Assassin given the Stingley situation.

            The interviewer also quoted Chuck Fairbanks, the Patriots' coach at the time, as saying he watched the Stingley hit over 100 times and concluded it was a perfectly legal hit.

            RIP to Jack Tatum. A Buckeye, who according to Villapiano, was also a big Jersey guy (just like Villpiano, who also hailed from NJ and played his college ball in Ohio, although at Bowling Green).

              He played some great games with the Raiders.

              Each time they went up against the Steelers you knew it was going to be a hard played game.

              Thanks for the memories.

              RIP

                One of the guys my old man always talks about that I wish I could have seen play. There aren't many who play the game like him anymore.

                  Didn't he say something like there were many times he could have gone for the interception and gotten the interception but he wanted to hit the guy hard rather than get the interception? He could hit that's for sure.
