Bob Brown - 1971 Topps

Robert Stanford “Bob” “The Boomer” Brown (December 8, 1941-) (T) was a giant of a man for his era, at 6’4” and 280 lbs., with the philosophy of punishing pass rushers to the point of exhaustion and enjoyed a ten-year career protecting his quarterback from would-be attackers. Brown earned All-American honors as a guard in his senior season at the University of Nebraska. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Brown with the number two pick overall in the 1964 NFL Draft, but he was also taken by the Denver Broncos in the 1964 AFL Draft. Bob chose the Eagles and the NFL where he could hone his craft of beating up on defensive lines. The Boomer played 126 NFL games that he spent “beating on people for the opening kickoff … to see results in the fourth quarter” to which the opposing defenders “didn’t have much left … and that they want to keep coming.” He played offensive tackle for ten years for the Eagles (1964-1968), the Los Angeles Rams (1969-1970) and the Oakland raiders (1971-1973). Brown’s tenacious ability, superior strength and incredible quickness (for a big man) earned him five NFL All-Pro First Team selections and six MFL Pro Bowl appearances. He was also named the NFL/NFC offensive lineman of the year three times. Bob recovered two fumbled over the course of 126 career games. Boomer Brown was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1993 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
