Doug Gottlieb: "An incredible life. In any conversation of the greatest American athlete in the history of our country, you have to at least put him in that conversation. And in any conversation for the greatest running back. Not only a 3-time NFL MVP, an All-American lacrosse player, ran track, played basketball at Syracuse and averaged 15 a game. He placed fifth in the national championship decathlon. He was so dominant that they changed the rules of lacrosse."

Doug Gottlieb reflects on the incredible life and legacy of Jim Brown after the news of his passing at the age of 87. Doug explores full scope of Brown's impact on and off the field and explains why Brown's remarkable NFL career is only part of the reason why Brown should be considered one of the greatest athletes of all-time.
