Pat McInally: Pat McInally’s life off field has eclipsed on-field achievements – latimes.com (via Don in Mass)
As a life long and former Bengals fan, I just had to share this post from Don in Mass. It’s a where are they now piece on one of my all time favorite Bengals: Pat McInally. While McInally is well known in the NFL for being the only player to score a 50 on the Wonderlic test, he is revered throughout Bengaldom for his play as a punter and part-time wide receiver during the 70’s, when the Bengals actually managed to field some pretty good teams.
My favorite memory of McInally came during a bitter rival game with the Steelers in the late 70’s; during a punt, McInally was laid out by the fierce rush of the original Steel Curtain. So much so, that he had to be strapped to a board and carted off the field. Late in the fourth quarter, he returned to catch a long touchdown pass from Ken Anderson to upset the Steelers, as well as upsetting my step mom, who is a huge Steelers fan 😉
Thanks for publishing the post Don, you made my day by taking me in the way back machine!
