YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THIS IS MIKE PETERSON'S BROTHER?!!??

Impressed.

OMG!! I went to Georgia Southern. It's even more impressive to watch live. I think in his whole collegiate career he on only had one game he didn't rush for 100 yards. Was a top recruit for the Gators but had a speech impediment that hurt him. Guy was a beast!!

Had no idea Randall Cunningham had a brother that played in the league.

Sam 'Bam' Cunningham, the older brother of Randall Cunningham, was a very good football player in his own right:

"He played his entire career (1973 through 1982) with the Patriots and was a 1978 Pro Bowl selection. Cunningham finished his career with 5,453 rushing yards, 210 receptions for 1,905 yards, and 49 touchdowns. He is the older brother of former UNLV and NFL quarterback (and All-America punter) Randall Cunningham. Cunningham is the 2010 Inductee to the Patriots Hall of Fame."

As for the Falcons, I did not realize that Benny Malone was the younger brother of Art Malone.
