Just a month after Nick Buoniconti, this:

HOF center, Dolphins great Jim Langer dies at 71

Every single offensive snap in the Fins' perfect season started with Jim Langer. Two other nugs I was unaware of: He is one of 17 UFAs in Canton, and the Jim Langer Award is given to the best NCAA Division II lineman every year. He was a first-ballot HOF inductee in 1987. As with Buoniconti, hats off to a great career marked by perseverance, commitment, and achievement. More at the link.

I'm wondering whether the Football Gods will allow a perfect season either (a) never or (b) only after the last member of that '72 squad has shuffled off this mortal coil.
