former Falcons pro bowl full back was hired today by the Carolina Panthers as their RB coach. Played for the Falcons 87-90, went to the pro bowl in 88, rushed for over 1000 yds that year. was a good guy, good player
didn't know he'd done some coaching in the NFL, been in the college coaching ranks the last 10 years or so. Good for him!

Ah yeah, John Settle the early #44. In the heat of the game I still watch Jason Snelling and say go Settle! They do have the same initials.

He was a good RB for us
RE: John Settle - papachaz - 02-04-2011 10:49 PM
yeah he was. i think the thing he did really well, was to come in following the William Andrews legacy. so many of us were so heartbroken to loose him like we did. JS came in and had a few really good years for us. glad he's got a career in the business, i just hate it's for one of our division rivals. of course when he was here, the carolina panthers weren't even a gleam in anyone's eye.....well, they still aren't, LMAO
anyway, JS may the good Lord shine on your efforts, in every game except against us, and esp against the taints

he's listed in pro football reference as a FB when he went to the pro bowl in 1988. if i'm remembering right, there were years that FB and RB were all classified as RB, but Settle was here categorized as a FB for 88 and 89. either way, he was a helluva player.

Settle was a bowling ball, kind of like Turner. So he could have been classified as a FB
