Bednarik: Paterno Should Call It Quits
If you thought going 11-1 and winning the Orange Bowl was enough to get the heat off Penn State coach Joe Paterno, well, think again. NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Chuck Bednarik, 80, had some old-school advice for youngster Paterno, 79. "You've had (your time); you've been a success; you'll get in the Hall of Fame. Stop it. Let somebody else take over," Bednarik said at a "Tailgating With the Lions" banquet last week. He wasn't finished. "(Paterno is) too old. Too old for a college coach, believe me. No, Joe, you're a great coach. But, hey, you've had enough."
