Joe Don Looney

I didn't even know he played for the Saints

Someone should make a movie about his life

Kafka, I'm not sure he played a down in a regular season game.

I think he quit football and joined a commune somewhere, but the guy had talent just a bit looney.

re: 5 Favorite Saints Players
Wikipedia says he had 3 carries for -3 yards

quote:

Looney was ranked as the most uncoachable player in NFL history by NFL Films president Steve Sabol. He would often intentionally run the wrong way on plays in practice in order to make things more challenging for himself. He once skipped several practices. When questioned about his absences, he responded by saying, "if practice makes perfect and perfection is impossible, why practice?."

The old man told me about him. I'm going to do some research on him.

Did he play football after he left the Saints?

Gleason kind of transcends favoritism - if anything he is a hero.

he is certainly a hero in my book.
