Former Colts LB Mike Curtis Dies


Recommended Posts

Mike Curtis was someone I looked up to as a young kid. He played with tremendous intensity... think Jack Lambert intensity. He was formerly a FB and brought that athleticism to the LB position.

 

Drafted in 1965, his interception in the last minute-and-half of the game set up Jim O'Brien's game winning field goal over Dallas in Super Bowl V.

 

Curtis, known as "Mad Dog" may best be known for taking out a fan who ran on to the field and tried to take the football. The fan regretted it.

 

Mike Curtis was 77 years old. I didn't see a cause of death.
