loved the little oil derrick and light blue colors.  too bas that uni is defunct.  way better than the texans uni

Yeah when the Oilers left Houston they should have left the history in there......although I suspect they would have been forced to change the name and logo anyway. lol

Do you remember the Rams DE Jack Youngblood?   He was mine.  I was a DE in HS and he was the NFL player I wanted to be like.  

Great thread.

Thank you so much for doing this.

I am getting to relive my childhood in a very good way. 

Going to have to break out the football cards from the 60's and go down memory lane.

Earl Campbell's a good one....

His run on Monday night football is still so vivid in my memory and one of the most electrifying plays I have seen. Sure guys now hurdle defenders, put crazy moves on etc. Earl just got the ball and challenged you to try and tackle him. Once he turned the corner it was give it your best shot but I am and did going to run right through you.

Never liked Elway either.  But always was in awe of his arm.  Also the first QB I can recall saying "wow, somebody that big is a QB?"

True. Have to respect the ability but he is the poster boy for entitlement.

That might not be a fair assessment, but that is how it came off at the time.

I am going to apologize in advance for this comment.

He is probably my most hated player.

Again, my apologies.

No accounting for taste ;)

I followed Elway from Stanford on through the Broncos.  He was one of those QBs that you knew was going to do something wild during a game and it was worth watching (Stabler, Staubach, Farve, Mahomes)
