Asked for his opinion about the controversial incompletion involving Bryant late in Dallas' loss to the Packers, Peters said he thought it should have been ruled a catch. "I say it was a catch, but I was rooting against them, so I was glad they said it was no catch," said Peters, who was born in Queen City, Texas. They're always rooting for them and I'm the only one rooting against them." Peters and Dallas owner Jerry Jones are both products of the University of Arkansas, but only one of them was an offensive lineman for the Razorbacks and it was not the giant of a man who has been to seven Pro Bowls. When we play on Sunday, I'm not trying to be nice to him." In the six seasons since Peters arrived in Philadelphia from Buffalo in what might have been the best trade in franchise history, the Eagles and Cowboys have each won a couple of NFC East titles.

Peters was selected to replace Linda Darnell as the female lead in Captain from Castile (1947) opposite Tyrone Power, when Darnell was reassigned to save the production of Forever Amber.
Although she had not yet made her screen debut, Peters was highly publicized. For her second film, Deep Waters (1948), which Peters filmed in late 1947, she was reunited with her director from Captain from Castile, Henry King.
He made the move from rawhide to pigskin in 2003 and covered the Eagles for seven years before returning to his roots as the Inquirer's baseball columnist in 2010.
