Question
Was there a linebacker with last name rizzo in late 70's early 80's?

Answer
Yes, indeed!  Joseph V. "Joe" Rizzo was one of the linebackers during the famed "orange crush" era along with  Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson and Bob Swenson.  A graduate of the US Merchant Marine Academy, he was drafted in 1973 by the Buffalo Bills and played for the Broncos in 81 games from 1974 to '80, starting in 62.
