The Colts great quarterback, Bert Jones

Recommended Posts

One minute in John "the voice of God" Facenda starts narrating.

When I was young, his was the voice I heard when I thought about football and this short video is a reminder that Bert Jones was another great one for the boys in blue.


What a year that was!! Bert and the Colts gave Colts fans a lot of great memories for 3 years running.....If only Bert hadn't gotten hurt.

I saw him play his first game against the Browns on a hot September day in Cleveland. I still remember a Browns fan sitting in back of me who said "He'll never be any good". I won't repeat what I said to him.

In retrospect, it's a good thing my friends are pretty big guys.

Notice no one was wearing a jersey or team gear in the stands......the NFL has found a cash cow in apparel. I wonder what that makes per year. I'm talking jerseys, flags, cups, coolers, hats, coats.....etc. I bet its alot. What a great run business.

You know what else is cool. Even if a team stinks sometimes half the country can see them. i think its great that every team gets some kind of showing.

Not like the other sport like NBA. If your not Boston, LA, Chicago, Miami your not getting on TV

I love the everything about the NFL :fb:

Jones to Carr. *sigh*

By the time Jones rolled around the regional broadcasts took over and i never saw any Colt games on TV here in Jersey, and it was a-way a-way before the internet.

Anyone remember getting the team roster in TV Guide for the weekend games?

Great memories! Thanks.

Bert Jones & Lydell Mitchell were my two favorite players when I was a teen. It's always irked me that the greatness of Bert Jones seems lost due to injury and time. He was the best QB in the league in his day and well on the path to the HOF. So sad that his destiny became knocked off track due to misfortune.

    • If Reich can make Jacoby Brissett, who is a terrible QB, look good for 7 weeks, Eason has nothing to worry about.  I think he will do fine.  He will mostly hand off, check down, but then do something Brissett could never do, which is COMPLETE a long pass.
    • Yeah I work nights and woke up to Bryant and Baez being traded, I was shocked Baez got traded and Bryant was our best player and just a great guy. At least we finally won a WS in 2016 with those players, so Cubs fans don't have to hear that 108 year crap anymore  . I hated see Rizzo go as well. I have been a Cubs fan for 37 years much like the Colts. Anyway I was like at least I have football to look forward too, then I read about Wentz. I almost just went back to bed.
    • Yeah I am still in shock this is happening this year. Not thinking straight. I was so sure Baez wouldn't be traded and MVP loved being a Cub. They call Ernie Banks Mr. Cub but definitely MVP could have that title too.    KB (aka MVP) key accolades as a Cub: Career .279 batting average = very good for todays game Career OBP% .378 4Time All-Star = 2015, 2016, 2019, 2021 Has proven he can play 2 positions great = 3B, and LF  Led the league in Runs scored in 2016 = 121 Won NL Rookie of the Year in 2016 Won NL MVP in 2016 World Series Champion in 2016   -He gave to many charities in the city of Chicago and is just a humble guy.    
    • I understand everyone is talking about the QB situation and rightfully so but in case anyone was wondering how the left tackle spot was going…     sorry if that had been posted.     He also said this about Ben.  Again sorry if someone posted.    
    • What hurts is that the Cubs are my baseball team. Talk about adding insult to injury .  I was having flash backs to the day Grigson cut our jersey collection after the team let Peyton go.  Oh well at least the US has Caleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky.
