Grew up watching, and loving, Irv's work for CBS. His highly qualified, intelligent, and articulate analysis was consistently excellent. His first-hand Pro Bowl calibre football experience/knowledge translated well, during his media career. And his good looks and wonderfully pleasant manner added to his appeal.
Thanks for being a special part of a special era in NFL and television history, Irv. Your classy contributions and presence provided memorable accounts, and set benchmarks on the field and in the studio.
