    That's a fascinating read. I didn't know that much about him. I already had great respect for him before, but this article just bumped my respect for him up about 1,000 notches.

    Iverson could learn a thing or two from Marvelous Marvin. In more ways than one.

    Great article, one of the most comprehensive I've read and of course it's from another cities newspaper.

    Marvin is about as good of a guy as there is.

    I remember watching him spike the ball in a game last year, and I talked about how uncommon it was for him, and everyone jumped me saying he does stuff like that all the time.

    Amazing article. We are extremely lucky to have not one, but TWO players like that at skill positions. Peyton and Marvin, both are professionals in every way. I swear I'll cry if they don't get a Super Bowl ring. It would be hard to find two guys who deserve it more.

    I was going to quote the exact same line you did, Aw Heck.

    He is the definition of class and professionalism. You can't find a better role model in sports today. He is everything a professional athlete should be. It's a shame that his type is so rare, however.

    What a great article!

    And a great game from Harrison yesterday!

    I love what he did after one of his TDs--sticking the ball in the dude's equipment, whatever that thing is. That was funny. He seemed a little more outgoing yesterday, but still the classy, amazing, proffesional Marvin Harrison that we're used to.

    What a guy.

    The story about him and the track guy from high school is awesome. So calm, so cool.

    Harrison is awesome, always have thought so. I'm proud that Indiana always seems to get these TRUE professional guys (Peyton, Marvin, Comeback Jim, Marshall Faulk, Reggie almost all of the old pacers); you don't have to scold them like little kids, you don't have to tell them out to dress, you don't have to tell them to act professional. They show up, do their job like any other professional would. Harrison is just another one of those guys except he has so much more stage to put on a show like T.O or Chad Johnson does. Just glad we get these type of players.

    The Pacers use to get these type of players as well, I hope they (pacers) can get back on the right track, get more true professionals and rid some of these bad apples.

    Did anyone else see after Marvin made a big catch on 3rd down for a first he just threw the ball up in the air.

    The fact that Marvin is so laid back makes is so cool when he celebrates. That game yesterday was so fun to watch.

    I really have a good feeling about this year. *knock on wood*

    Isaac I hate to tell you this but you have the wrong DB in your avi. You should have #20 Donald Washington a red shirt freshman from my old high school (Franklin Central) right here in Indy.

    I'm excited about Washington, he's going to be a solid player. I was happy when we brought him aboard, and he'll get his chance next year.

    As of right now, it's all about Malcolm J.
