Rangers 7, Tigers 3 (11).
Close your eyes again Angel fans. Yep, it’s Mike Napoli delivering another game-winner, but he couldn’t have done it without Nelson Cruz.

Jay Paris, with some wonderful insight from Hall of Famer Dan Fouts, delivers a touching tribute to the late Charger legend. One day saner heads will prevail in the NFL and Coryell, an offensive genius whose work is still copied by many, will rightfully take his place among the legends of the Hall of Fame. It’s unfortunate he won’t be around to see justice finally prevail.

The legendary coach, who guided the Chargers, Rams and San Diego State, passed today in the San Diego area after a lengthy illness. He was 85.
Coryell was the innovative guru behind the Chargers high-powered offense of the ’70s and ’80s, when Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts and tight end Kellen Winslow Sr. had field days against defenses. Coryell was one of the finest offensive minds to coach the game.

Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith, both of whom won three NFL rings, were no-brainers and its wonderful to see them go in together, but Don Coryell was the notable exception who got stiffed for the Hall of Fame. Hello? That’s not to say the other inductees aren’t deserving. All of them are. But Coryell is the offensive guru by whom all others are still compared.
