  • Lets Just Say A Quiet Silent Prayer For Alex Karras.? From the Detroit Lions to Blazing Saddles, Alex always gave it his best.
    thanks.
    Alex was always the gentlemen even when he and Paul Hornig of the Packers were
    sat down a year for gambling. I truly liked Alex for his style of play. He was terror
    to line up against, Yet would share his life with you if you needed help.

    Smoking Joe. They are one of the same. Thank you all for the kind words.

    Who Has Heard Of The 1981 Movie,”Nobody’s Perfekt”? It didn’t fare well at the box office. It starred Alex Karras and Susan Clark (Webster); Robert Klein and Gabe Kaplan. directed by Peter Bonerz

    • Curator says:

      Possibly, but I think it has to be more than that…As the other answerer said, Hornung got in….

      Edit: I am also a little dismayed that Jerry Kramer has not been voted in.

    • Curator says:

      Heck, Suh may have had a stomping fit because his wager on the game was imploding…..Alex had that angle covered in 1963.

  • Sam says:

    How Is Alex Karras Not In The Hall Of Fame? Let’s be honest here….Karras is what Suh wishes he could be.
    @K-Dawg- The greatest D-lineman in Lions history.

    • Curator says:

      I agree, but I wonder if it has anything to do with his gambling suspension in 1963. I mean he should be in, no doubt! It seems like a grudge to me. The Lions may have not been great when he played, but on his side of the ball they were. The Lions were 3rd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd and 5th in defense when he played.
