Anokh: Even if you want to believe that Lewis never touched any illegal substances (which is opening a whole can of worms…), this doesn’t beat the Harbaugh’s. Throughout sports, we’ve always seen the stories of veteran players finishing out their careers with a ring, riding out into the sunlight. Michael Strahan, Jerome Bettis, Michael Jordan (No, I don’t count his stint with the Wizards as a real thing), etc. When have we ever seen two brothers face against each other in the same Super Bowl? This has never happened before in NFL history and is a story that may or may not jokingly have everything that makes one sexy: family drama, jealousy, brotherly love, and so on. As NFL fans, we now have our very own version of the Williams’ sisters – only coaches. And who is to say that they won’t keep facing each other in the Super Bowl and lay the groundwork for more football coaching families? A story – no, a rivalry like this, one that may just be in its infancy, is worth telling. Not a Paul Bunyan like legend of a star about to fade away. It’s time for a new NFL with new figures to lead the way.
