    Riggins was the type of player who should complain about head injury. A Jim Taylor type runner. Not that big and not that fast, just punishing instead of being punished. 30 or 40 carries a game with several helmet to helmet hits on every play. Single handedly carried the Skins to Super Bowl glory. Great game.
