Happy Friday everyone! My previous plan was to discuss the Tim Tebow and the New England Patriots situation, but that has already been done to death – I’m not going to add anything that isn’t already out there. So, with Father’s Day this Sunday, and given how many fathers love football, I decided to take a look at some father/son football families.
Howie Long, Chris Long, Kyle Long
Howie Long is not known for his rapping, but he’s known for being one of the most fearsome defensive lineman in his thirteen seasons with the Oakland Raiders, matching his career high of thirteen sacks in a season.
Chris Long, his oldest son is a defensive end for the St. Louis Rams and his middle son, Kyle Long was drafted by the Chicago Bears this year.
Oliver Luck and Andrew Luck
Oliver Luck spent five seasons with the now-gone Houston Oilers, drafted in the same year as Jim McMahon. Though mostly a back-up to Warren Moon, he did have modest success with the team.
Andrew Luck, a graduate of Stanford University, was chosen by the Colts as first pick overall, and went on to break several passing records for a rookie including:
- Most passing yards in a single game by a rookie quarterback: 433 (vs Miami Dolphins) (11/4/12)
- Most passing yards by a rookie in a single season: 4,374
- Most 300+ yards passing games by a rookie QB (6)
Clay Matthews, Sr., Clay Matthews Jr, Clay Matthews III, Casey Matthews, Bruce Matthews, Kevin Matthews
This one was doozy! Not only was Clay Matthews Sr. a Korean war veteran and an Army paratrooper, he apparently could cough and spit out football players. Born in 1928, he was an offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers.
He is the father of Clay Matthews, Jr., a linebacker for the Cleveland Browns and the Atlanta Falcons and Bruce Matthews, an offensive guard for the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans.
In turn, Clay Matthews Jr. is father to Clay Matthews III, the Green Bay Packer linebacker with the long hair, Casey Matthews, linebacker on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Clay Matthews Jr’s brother, Bruce Matthews has one son in the NFL: Kevin Matthews, who just signed with the Washington Redskins
Forget the Mannings. That, dear readers, is a football family.
Happy Father’s Day!
