The Great Roger Carr

I watched them play quite a lot, Bert and Roger...I always thought of Bert Jones as a great QB who had too short a career.

I do not toss the word 'great' around very easily.  I would describe Roger Carr as a VERY good receiver...Bert was the 'great'.

Great memories guys, and you all have great memories to remember all of this as well. The offense was well balanced with Mitchell running behind RT George Kunz (All-Pro) and G Robert Pratt, with Ken Mendenhall at C (very underrated but whom actually ate up Jack Lambert in the '76 play-off game). Bert Jones to Roger Carr was the most feared passing combo of the day (along with the Raiders combo of Ken Stabler to Cliff Branch). Chester at TE was as good as any. The defense was as everyone remembered, front loaded. The Sack Pack with Dutton, Barnes, Ehrman and Cook were tremendous. Not much at LB except for Stan White. DBs were always the issue, despite having a front four that could rush the passer, we gave up a lot of big plays (i.e. Ghost to the Post in OT in '77 vs. the Raiders). Great teams and great memories.

Speaking of memory, I'm trying to remember (without resorting to cheating) who was the great tight end that I'm assuming led the Raiders to let Chester go in the first place. Dave something maybe? A key vet piece to that offense that the Colts were lucky to be able to get.

Loved those teams, Lydell Mitchell was sick could do it all, Would love to have that OL none. Carr was great, Bert what can you say just wanted to win SOOOOOOOO competitive!! Fred Cook was a mean dude I remember he would not sack QBS he would annihilate them. I remember one sack after the tackle he got up an kicked the QB on the ground!! Love Bruce Laird & White, Muncie Norm Thompson. so good and fun to watch was this team, the only negative was Pittsburgh, Oakland, & Houston where soooo good, what epic battles!!

    • Ohhhhh well that’s that then! 
    • I agree but I'm afraid Ballard and Frank are too chickenpoo to make adjustments to tweak our D. They will bring in a cover 3 guy or promote from with in. Ballard will say we brought DeFo in for 3tech and it's going to stay its coarse...honestly if we change D style it will take two season fto build that personnel... we are in a rebuild and keeping everything the same means we could clean house next year if nothing changes. I personally like Ballard and wish we went with all new coaching...We are looking at a 8-9 season coming up. 
    • Truth is we need a player on every level across the board. We need secondary help, we need DL help, and we need a real Mike. Oke ain't built for it... coaching is part of it. We are vanilla on both sides of the ball too often... he'll we ne OL and Rec help on offense... the Wentz signing was a two year set back...it hurts...
    • Half those turnovers are Leonard's from pure will, has nothing to do with scheme... Eberflus has scheme to limit points not yards... and we don't have a QB to put up points. Time for some adjusents...
    • For what it’s worth….   Allen’s jump from Y2 to Y3 was historic.   As in never been done before.  Ever.   His completion percentage jumped about 10.5 points.   Again, historic.   Did he cool off this year?   Yes, but still very high and he’s throwing much further down the field than CW is.      Who are you comparing JA to?   Who was the flash in the pan who turned out average?
