Tributes To Gordon Forbes
So sorry to learn of the passing of Gordon Forbes. “Gordo” was the Inquirer’s Eagles beat writer for many years before going to USA Today. Nobody was more knowledgeable about the game.
He was a tough, investigative journalist. He was also encouraging to a young broadcaster.

Oh no. RIP Gordon Forbes, former Eagles beat writer for the Inquirer. Not just a true professional and expert on the NFL but a decent man who treated me with so much respect when I was a young, bumbling beat guy for a suburban paper.
