    Your kidding me right? That's it? John Madden covered EVERY decade and generation that's existed on this board, and theres 3 replies in response?

    RIP Coach. I loved the guy as a coach and commentator. I don't know of any TV football commentator today who can come close to matching his personality and knowledge.

    JM was like John Candie's tough older brother.
    And he made those microphones look like a toothbrush with his big mitts.
    Sorry to hear he passed.

    Interesting question AJ. after reading the above comments, I did some soul searching and came to realize I became disenchanted with the NFL and the strikes and lock outs back in the early 80s. I just ignored the games for years, did not watch the Super Bowls, etc. No question Madden was a unique individual, coach and sports commentator. RIP

    Like Don I was a big Madden fan. But I haven't watched the NFL in five years. The game is too politicized and scripted for me. I don't think even Madden could dress up today's NFL.
