Howie son Kyle was listed 6'6 on wiki Click Here does look 2" on dad Howie and his 6'3 brother Chris.

Solid 194-195cm guy in his prime I think and 197-198cm with the flat top...


I'd love to meet him.

@Rampage: I met him brown and he looked slightly taller than me (very slightly). I would’ve estimated him to be 6’5 very worst 195cm but he came out and said 6’4.5-6’5 is where he stands. I’m thinking maybe 195 is more like it or he has lost height. Could also be that when I met him I guessed him based on me being closer to 6’4.5 when I’m closer to 6’4.25 at a low. I can see Howie maybe 6’3 7/8 today no less

Rob, how about you give that and forget the peak?


I wouldn’t say he’s under 6ft4 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Feb/18
I think 194cm is the lowest I'd give him peak with 195cm being a strong possibility...196cm maybe early morning
Editor Rob
Well, as I mentioned in the description...there is definitely a 6ft 4 and 1/4 out there for him.

To get described like that, the data has to come from some measurement, I tried to find the 1/2 that somebody mentioned a while ago, but didn't find it yet, just the 1/4 inch mention.
Canson said on 15/Feb/18
I actually agree with Rob reducing it. He looks about Strahan’s height at most. Not even so sure he was 195 peak maybe more 194 based on what Bobby said below. Today tho he isn’t as tall as James brown and brown isn’t over 6’5. He looked “marginally” taller than me Looked half inch to an inch (inside of that).

rob ,now you give him 193 (195) what was the reason?
Editor Rob
I looked at Howie again, and he seems closer to 6ft 4 range than 5 now, so I can believe a half inch or so lost.

Always liked him big tall and funny need peak current he has shrunk looks maybe 6 3.
RP said on 8/Feb/18
Time to lower to 6'3.75" current & 6'4.5" peak, Rob.
Borats Chicken said on 29/Jan/18
rob, what age you reckon he lost some of his height?
Canson said on 28/Jan/18
@Checker: I don’t think he’s under 6’4 but not over it either. I’ve met James Brown before and he’s a solid 6’5” guy marginally taller than me. Brown has Howie by an inch

*correction
Just rewatched it on DVR, only one camera angle had Howie looking 1" taller than Chris. All other angles had them looking the same height. Saw some Draft day & UVA college pics of Chris & Howie...Chris looks 1" taller?...odd!
RP said on 26/Jan/18
He actually looked 1"+ taller than Chris on the Philadelphia post game sideline last week @ the NFC Championship Game.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/18
The flat top probably brings him to 197-198cm
checker said on 26/Dec/17
He flat out looks shorter than his 6'3 son Chris Long in every picture. How do you explain that.
Borats Chicken said on 29/Oct/17
Rob, would you say his current height 6'4.75 or 6'4.5?
Editor Rob: he might be between that range now.
Canson said on 22/Oct/17
@Rampage: wouldn’t surprise me if he were just a strong 6’4” all along. Strahan was boosted to 6’5 from 6’4.25 as well. I know from seeing him with James Brown (who is 195-196 in person) he’s shorter than him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/17
He looks closer to 6ft4 nowadays, must be said...
Canson said on 28/Sep/17
He's the same height as Strahan and is shorter than james Brown. No chance. He's at best a strong 6'4" and possibly a solid one. Brown is a legit 6'5" in person
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/17
Peak: 195-196cm
Today: 194cm
Canson said on 2/Aug/17
Actually looks same height as Strahan in pics
Canson said on 2/Aug/17
after seeing pics with he and James Brown id have to agree exactly with what Bobby said. Looks 6'4" maybe a hair over with James brown. I've met Brown (Lives in DC area) and he's actually "about" his listed 6'5" only a tad bit taller than me about 1/2" or so) absolute worst case 195 maybe best case peak 196. and he's close to an inch taller than Long. Long looks 193-194 tops with him
Canson said on 24/Mar/17
Naw he's my height more or less. I agree with SJH and Bobby and Christian.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
To be honest. He didn't look much over 6'4
Free said on 25/Jan/17
There are pics where his 6-3 son looks taller than him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/17
Rob, what are the chances of him being 6ft4 flat today?


I for one think he'd still clear it but may not quite hit that magical 6ft5 mark
Editor Rob: he may well have lost half inch or so.
RP said on 22/Dec/16
Peak: 6'4.5"
Current: 6'4"
Fact!
Borats Chicken said on 13/Dec/16
Rob, maybe its time to add peak height as 6'5 and current height 6'4.25 to 6'4.5? with Michael Strahan he looks to lose some height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/16
Nearer 6ft5 than 6ft4. Taller than Dan Marino
Borats Chicken said on 10/Nov/16
Rob, Howie does look like he's 6'4.25 to 6'4.5 next to his son Kyle long who's measured as 6'6 1/8 at combine
Editor Rob: yeah he could look sub 6ft 5.
BOBBYH3342 said on 10/Nov/16
agreed Christian -196.2cm Howie is not a legit 6'5 ive never met him but my father(198.3cm) has ran into him in providence (the 80s) and he said 6'4ish
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/16
Yeah well Christian that's not good enough. You can't demand that Rob just downgrade based on one comment.

However, there's a good possibility he's lost a bit with injuries.
Editor Rob: if I can find a video/article with the 4.5 it would be good.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/16
Rob, maybe 6ft5 peak and a bit under today?



He's 56 and has possibly some wear and tear.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 9/Nov/16
Editor Rob: Christian, is there any reference or source so I can confirm it?

------------

I can't find any at the moment, but RP said it in the comments below.

Howie was measured 6ft4.5 at one point, so him being 6ft5 is out of the question. Please change his listing Rob.
Editor Rob: Christian, is there any reference or source so I can confirm it?

Guy is huge and funny made an ok actor and a great presenter.
Probably a good footballer too.
He was a Holly wood 6 5 way bigger than any 6 footer or even 6 1 star.
Still remember a western/comedy with him and Emilio Estevez.. looked 7ft in it.
RP said on 8/Nov/16
Measured barefoot in 1981 @ Villonava @ 6'4-1/2" & 268 lbs
Mayfield said on 8/Nov/16
Glad to see Howie have his own page
Giorgi said on 8/Nov/16
Wow, couldn't see him this tall. His belt line seems pretty upwards. Rob, don't you think his spine has been shrunk in this picture?

Thanks Rob!
