NFL loses a legend

The game of football -- and the NFL especially -- lost a legend earlier today when Bill Walsh died at 75.

Walsh may have been the single most innovative coach in the last 30-35 years. Without him, the NFL would be devoid of the West Coast offense or any of its variations.

Walsh always had the scholarly look and attitude during his career and that helped make the San Francisco 49ers one of the classiest, most successful organizations in pro sports during his tenure.

Now, somewhere in the afterlife, you can bet Walsh is teaching his perfectly precise passing offense and smiling while doing so.
