Gerg's Beaver explained
An NFL live piece that originally aired in 1997 was just replayed. It was discussing "smash for cash" bounty programs that had been in place for years. They also talked about the beaver. Apparently Gerg had rewarded players with the honor of wearing a beaver after big hits or great play, since the beaver is the "hardest working in the animal kingdom". He tried to continue the tradition. We all know what happened then.
