Some other forgotten goodies I found in my box of collectibles from my childhood, also to find their way onto the poker room walls ..

Bert Jones probably my all-time favorite. I still feel bad for him those last couple years in Baltimore. He threw a beautiful deep ball, though.

The sad thing is, I truly believe he was the best QB of his era, but because of being undone by injuries, the being one of the all-time greats accolades will never come his way, from the masses.  He remains one of my all-time favorites as well, if not still my all-time favs.

People are probably sick of me saying this but I saw him play his first game with the Colts.

 

A sunny day in Cleveland.  Browns won but you could tell he was special even then.

Always happy to see Bert Jones in the collection as well.  As Terrell Davis showed by getting into HOF, you can be great for a short amount of time and still be considered great.  What Bert Jones did, specifically in 1976, was amazing.  What a great QB.

Thank you for adding "The Ruston Rifle"......I was/still am his biggest fan.  The Colts have had an incredible QB pedigree!

I saw Unitas's last TD as a Colt in Memorial Stadium in 72. If I remember right, it was a simple screen to Glenn Doughty, who broke about 3 sure tackles,  going 80 yards for the TD. Believe it was against the Bills?

 

Edit: looked it up- it was Eddie Hinton,  63 yards.

Hinton, not Doughty

I always felt sorry for Marty Domres. Big chance for a kid from Columbia University to make the NFL, and his competition was Johnny Unitas and then Bert Jones!

Bert Jones what and arm my all time favorite Colt QB. He could throw the ball through the field gold post from 50 yards out on his knees

Great collage, great QBs.  Unitas is my first sports hero and one of my favorites.

Back in the day they had an out of uniform televised QB skills competition. Throwing through tires, throwing for distance, that sort of thing. Bert blew the doors off his competition. He had the arm strength in the distance competition and hellaciously good accuracy as well.

I saw him in 1976 or 77 throw a 30 yard rope to Raymond Chester, across his body to the other side of the field. That was impressive! He always regretted missing Chester in the double-overtime playoff game against Oakland

I didn't include Jim Harbaugh because I didn't deem his longevity as a Colt to be adequate.  I admit that I have taken a leap of faith including Andrew Luck, for I am anticipating in excess of ten years and great success for him.
