I recall a story about Krause in camp at Mankato (when I was much younger) and he only needed one interception to tie the NFL record. He had been slipping in recent years and was still around on the team, presumably to get the record. In a full-team drill, the quarterback floated a pass well over a receiver's head into the waiting arms of Krause, who was playing a deep "center field" position on the field. There was a whistle to stop play and suddenly one of the players yelled out, "That ties it!" Laughs from the field and the crowd.
