There are those who say there is no more foot in football, but Detroit Lions Halfback Bruce Maher will not agree. Early in the Lions-Packer game at Detroit on Thanksgiving Day, he charged in to block Boyd Dowler's punt. The ball bounced out of the end zone for a Lions safety which started Detroit to a 23-10 win. Maher got the boot right in the stomach but he was not seriously hurt.
