75 was Jim Hart not sure who the backup was , google says Dennis Shaw
Gary Keithley was also on the roster. I'm sure neither played a down. Pretty sure it was the 75 season when Hart was only sacked 8 times the entire season.
Pro football reference says Dennis Shaw threw 8 passes. Ironically in another thread, he's the guy we got when we traded Ahmad Rashad.
Metcalf threw 2 passes that year on option passes so he was our #3 QB !
What's crazy is that Shaw was the 1970 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year with the Buffalo Bills
Pete Beathard (CJ Beathard's great uncle)
Johnny Unitas and Morral (?)
StartingQB: Don Meredith
BackupQBs: Jerry Rome, Craig Morton
I remember all of that. Bud Wilkinson got the job cause of how well he did at Oklahoma but that wishbone offense was all he knew. Doing something different in the NFL proved to be too difficult. 1979 was OJ Anderson's rookie year. I believe his first game was against the cowsissies? He lit them up not only rushing but in the return game also if memory serves me correctly? Yes, Jim Hart was getting old, he got sacked a whole lot that season. It's funny mentioning Neil Lomax. I was watching the halftime show on CBS one Sunday & Brent Musburger showed highlights of the Saturday college games. I believe it was the 81/82 season? Anyways, Portland St beat some team 107-0 & Lomax threw for a gazillion yards in the highlights from the night before. I remember thinking "I'd love to have that dude on the Cardinals"? Well I'll be damned if we didn't draft him in April & the rest is history. It's a damn shame he had such a bad line with the Cardinals for so long & took so many sacks. It messed his hip up bad. What could've been?
I SO miss The Sporting News...
