    The Mullet 

    Image courtesy of http://www.becks.comThe mullet. A hairdo so absurd, so utterly unappealing, yet you can not look away when confronted with its spectacle. Short in the front, short in the sides, but long in the back - it is truly horrific.  Case studies from the 1980's NFL are set forth below. 



    Morten Andersen's Euro Mullet.  Andersen brought not only his strong leg over from Europe, but he also brought some bad taste.  And are those highlights? A highlighted euro mullet? Andersen's playing career was featured in the previous entry. Andersen's mullet didn't stand in his way of becoming the NFL's all-time leading scorer.

    Don Majkowski played quarterback for the Green Bay Packers (1987-1992), the Indianapolis Colts (1993-1994) and the Detroit Lions (1994-1995). He had his best season in 1989, when he threw for over 4,300 yards and 27 touchdowns.  But, perhaps even more notable than his playing ability was the Majkowski Mullet.  Long, golden and was difficult for him to cover its beauty with a helmet.

    Bob Golic played defensive tackle for the New England Patriots (1979-1981), the Cleveland Browns (1982-1988) and the Los Angeles Raiders (1989-1992). He was selected to the Pro Bowl 3 times and he was named an All-Pro twice.  But, more importantly, he had a thick, flowing mullet that could be seen from miles away.  Image courtesy of

    Brian Bosworth was one of the most celebrated linebackers to ever come out of college and into the NFL.  While in college, Bosworth won the Butkus Award twice, he was a two time first team All-American, he made the Big Eight All Conference Team 3 times and he was an Academic All-American.  Although his career with the Seattle Seahawks (1987-1989) was cut short because of injuries, his mullet will live on in infamy.
