Los Angeles Chargers offensive lineman Chris Hairston, a former Bills draft pick, is on the Chargers' reserve/non-football injury list, but you can tell that he is missing the opportunity to play against his former team.

He wrestled every manner of man to the ground in his 13 NFL seasons. No running back's physical style impresses Urlacher more than Marshawn Lynch's.

The one-man stampede helped power the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl, rushing for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Bills drafted …
