    First Pack of football cards ever bought had a Johnny U ROOKIE card in it & older brother before that had me already a colt fan Colt Fan ever since . My brother's older friend by 6 years thought it was the coolest thing. I lived in Brooklyn, NY then, now live in LION country & childhood friend lives in Pat country which proves interesting. I am addicted to Peyton and have watched every game to my knowledge since he started his illustrious career.

    However am a COLT Fan First

    Still remember Superbowl 3 , Namath in one interview actually said he never called the game, he said since press said he did then why not take the credit for it. Saw that in interview while living in NY. K Now i have only seen it once, & don't know if he was joking or meant it , but it was never again seen by me nor anyone else to my knowledge. Too bad Colts brought in a hurt Unitas at end, he may have pulled it out if brought in earlier. He definitely would have seen the easy open receiver for a TD on the flea flicker Earl Moral didn't & that would have won the game.

    MY WORK
    I am a disabled Dr. who did ankle reconstruction from 1982 to 1988 when I became disabled. Was a short career but made a difference in children's lives who couldn't walk do to birth defects that I surgically repaired. One wrote he is now scoring TD's for me as I cant play sports any longer. Helped out many adults as well with various trauma .

    Very proud I made a difference in peoples lives. Exactly what I went to school for, just unfortunately for a short period of time.

    WHAT I LIKE TO DO
    Concerts and more concerts, seen over 400 Grateful Dead when Jerry was alive and many of the remaining groups concerts as well.


    Sundays watching Luck & Peyton at work. I have Watched every Colt game Luck & Manning has played Via Satellite NFL package and when on reg TV.

    IF I COULD GO ANYWHERE
    Visiting with family, time especially with great nephews & nieces

    FAVORITE PLACES
    Unfortunately as I am disabled - most of my time is with Dr's. , concerts, great dinners out, movies all have decreased with physical issues



    MY my disability restricts many options time-wise . Are other things just hard to get them in. However for someone who medically should be a quadriplegic I look perfectly healthy so cant't complain . I walk,& treadmill when physical disabilities allow me to at slow levels but at least its something , and don't let things stop me. Its all in the attitude one faces life with. Night activities requires a friend to drive or can get increased vertigo from lights

    Unfortunately disabilities have put a curb on concert going but still manage to get some local ones in when friends drive, just cant fly to any

    VACATION
    Visiting brother, grown nephews & their son my grand nephew, rest of family, Sanibel Island Florida with other graduates from my medical residency
    Unfortunately disabilities have put a curb on traveling
    ( again disabilities now prevents this but what great memories )

    FAVORITE MUSIC
    Grateful Dead , ZEPPLIN < STONES< PINK FLOYD< THE WHO ., DYLAN< SPRINGSTEEN< CREAM< CLAPTON etc Classic Rock , new stuff is fine as well as is classical.

    FAVORITE BOOKS
    Not much of a current reader as can get vertigo , Mysteries , action adventure, dramas other Frankenstein when a kid
    Great book to read:
    JOHNNY UNITAS, AMERICA'S QUARTERBACK forward by Peyton Manning, 2nd forward by Art Donovan
    Book written by Lou Sahadi.
    Many never before published reminiscences , of course all his records , over 300 pages

    copyright 2004

    1st chapter , greatest game ever played , 25 pages & it just gets better

    In the forward by Peyton ( there is another by HOF 'er Art Donovan ) he says when Johnny died he wanted to wear black high tops in his honor but the league said no. IN closing Peyton says that u hear about players from other eras, and some would be good today. well let me tell u theres no wondering about Unitas, he was a superstar then,he would be today as well.
    Finally PEYTON SAYS

    THE NFL SHOULD NAME AN AWARD AFTER HIM FOR ALL THAT HE'S MEANT. HE PUT FOOTBALL ON THE MAP

    Top 11 Colts of All-Time (NFL.com)

    Siragusa was a monster in middle of the d line who ate up double teams, eventualy left in free agency as had many isssues with management like Bill Tobin, Way Marchbroda was treated , & his successor coach Gelindo "Lindy" Infante the good thing on losing him , defense really fell apart and help get few losing seasons and then we got PEYTON - lots of ways to think about how things play out spent to much valuable home PT time and must stop now both threads and also the status posts been getting To bad i am not 1 to make a comment and never reply again when others reply to mine, but the never ending loop which may seem trivial time wise to most is of utmost value to me Weeks starts and back to Dr at 8 am tomorrow then throughout week and weeks to come take care my friend and best to all here and to colts season

    only comment , yes its true moistly colts Vs Packers ( what a team besides Lombardi & Bart Star What a backfield, may be best 1-2 punch in g history ) , but would throw in the Browns occasionally as Jim Brown led team and wont even mention shut out score in losing to them in national championship YES mike curtis was devastating player for our defense sanders there due to becoming the eraser when needed for playoff & SB run, otherwise to hurt and stayed on team for hope of getting healthy

    Now thats a list, filled with inclusive players from may an era, 1 may say the order can be changed somewhat but that would be a mute comment and relegated more to personal bias on 1 of my earlier comments in this post i noted Bert Rechichar, DB, LB, RB , & mentioned he also had record NFL 56 yard FG for colts, and was a punt returner as needed ( had 100 yard punt return TD in college , and also was a wr as needed, know for faking out players to get fre in college) - man was Mr multi positional for the 1950's colts

    lets face it won championship before the SB, started the 2 minute drill, 1 SB was hurt all season and only came in game late to try and rescue it , stupid earl morrell though an excellent season didnt see the wide open receiver on a flee flicker for what would of been an easy TD and would of won the game UNITAS WAS SIMPLY THE CLASS OF HIS TIMES & had the brains , film study and playmaking ability, together with confidence & toughness as detailed earlier to play in any era In 58 game inside the 12 or 11 he threw an outside pass , caught and went out of bounds near the 2 , only 3 points needed to win , when asked why chance an IT when a FG was enough he said its not taking chances when u know what u are doing then lets ameche run it in again instead of a FG and a fumble was always possible

    actually while i liken Unitas to Beery with Moore out of the backfield, to Peyton to Marvin with Faulk or James in the backfield - call them triplets of old & new if u wish and being old enough & raised on the Balt colts by big brother, & seeing how with a nod from Johnny , Beery would know he changed the call & route based on film study that they did more than anyone back then and that started the 2 minute drive to tie that 58 game YET Marvin i would give the nod over beery- Marvin wasn't the biggest , but what he could do with the ball in his hands before he got hurt ( & I still blame addai for running into his knee ) and the sheer brilliance of his double move and best of all the Marvelous hands that caught anything around him as he tipped the ball around dancing along sidelines till ball was secure before going out of bounds ( no catch will ever be the equal to me as the tip toe playing paddy cake with the ball in the endzone for that TD Vs the Pats while somehow staying in bounds long enough for ball to go back and forth , up & down hand to hand then secure, then both feet touch maybe an inch before sideline then just drop forward out of bounds with secured ball for TD ) ---- or simply diving on a bomb parallel to the ground arms outstretched & catching it fully stretched out was to much to ignore- the man caught what over 140 catches 1 year - if u take his shortened time playing and overlap with Rice he has better stats and has done things for more years in a row yardswise, TD wise catch wise over that span than anyone before or later with an = time period

    also 1 must remember as you said you looked at stats , well back then seasons were only 12 games long so less touches for moore Vs James per year and the sport was much tougher on ones body, ( just ask anyone head slapped by Deacon Jones ) What u need to watch is some of NFL networks top 10, The best runs or runs after the catch had that Mackey run I alluded to as 1 of the top ever, You just cant believe how many defenders he knocked over and dragged as he just plowed ahead for a great gain ( dont remember if scored but think was finally gang tackled ) truly showed off hisa power, strength and pure determination ) Finally these old guys never had such conditioning machines nor so many positional coaches , nor nutiionalist who knew anything about fod and thre body as all was though wrong back then etc etc I will never forget and know i said this years ago Re Unitas that he was basically clotheslines across the head and blood gushed from his nose , today u immediately have a Dr at your side esp the QB , game stops as you are escorted off field after initial assessment if not carted , What happened with Unitas , Between plays Mackey stuffed mud up his nose to try and stop the bleeding, worked somewhat,Unitas still bleeding just marched downfield and threw a td - its not that the game has changed , its really a different game somewhere between old time tackle and the pro bowl for lack of an accurate comparison also 1 must remember as you said you looked at stats , well back then seasons were only 12 games long so less touches for moore Vs James per year and the sport was much tougher on ones body, ( just ask anyone head slapped by Deacon Jones ) What u need to watch is some of NFL networks top 10, The best runs or runs after the catch had that Mackey run I alluded to as 1 of the top ever, You just cant believe how many defenders he knocked over and dragged as he just plowed ahead for a great gain ( dont remember if scored but think was finally gang tackled ) truly showed off hisa power, strength and pure determination ) Finally these old guys never had such conditioning machines nor so many positional coaches , nor nutiionalist who knew anything about fod and thre body as all was though wrong back then etc etc I will never forget and know i said this years ago Re Unitas that he was basically clotheslines across the head and blood gushed from his nose , today u immediately have a Dr at your side esp the QB , game stops as you are escorted off field after initial assessment if not carted , What happened with Unitas , Between plays Mackey stuffed mud up his nose to try and stop the bleeding, worked somewhat,Unitas still bleeding just marched downfield and threw a td - its not that the game has changed , its really a different game somewhere between old time tackle and the pro bowl for lack of an accurate comparison

    I had added this ON MOORE to my original post via edit after u responded to add to back of donovan cards the moore ones Lenny moores cards say = cpmellinjg stuff, 58 card like he has proved to be one of most sensational t runners to enter NFL in years, like a bolt of lighning streaking down the field with that ball cardled in hand - had best ground gainhing average last year 56 card talks about how fast he can he hit though holes etc Lets face it we all had preference, grew up with original colts thats why I have great personal memories and am jaded Via childhood idols & why have PSA judged set of 58 starters & some subs plus some early and later years like Arts Donovans 52 rookie, Obviously Mackey was later , every unitas yearly casrd of cpurse, talk about multi positional someone called Bert Rechchar- have a 51 rookie size of a postage stamp( actually was college & in college uniform but officially NFL considered it his rookie card even though his 52 card he is still a tenn volunteer , ( back then rookie cards could come out before or even a year after a player was on a team and playing - VERY WEIRD he was a ace pass receiver with great fake out moves,100 yard td punt return ( think was in college but could do it in later years as needed ) , was a "wingback"/ halfback ,at 1 point held NFL record for field goal made- 56 yarder think in 1953 as a colt and was considered 1 of the colts ace DB's , had 5 IT's in 57 i think it was & in 53, voted colt MVP of the Colt DB group as per his 54 card , the 53 card i dont have when he realy became a colt Belive played some roles on 58 team, not sure what though but doubt started, belive he played in all 58 games but didnt start in any sorrry fingers hurt stopping here

    cant complain save list needs to be bigger, all should be there, Moore has longer tenure than James BTW art Donovan from the back of his 1957 card -1 of the most able defense-men in the league,, made all pro for 3rd straight time in 56 ( dont know about latter years ) has the power to spare and bolts through the line in a flash to smother enemy passers and rack up runners with shattering tackles-. uses his brain as well as brawn . art is one of the toughest men to trap back of 58 card 1 of the most bruising men on the field,.... opponents want no part of him because he plays to tough... running into him islike butting into a brick wall and when he clamps his massive arms around a ball carrier it looks like he is trying to seperate him from his head Lenny moores cards say = cpmellinjg stuff, 58 card like he has proved to be one of most sensational t runners to enter NFL in years, like a bolt of lighning streaking down the field with that ball cardled in hand - had best ground gainhing average last year 56 card talks about how fast he can he hit though holes etc sorrry fingers hurt stopping here
