Yeah, I miss Wittman too. For me, his all-time call is "ELLETT LETS IT GO, SCORES!"
Always liked Slack, it's crazy watching him run and move so well with his bone-on-bone knee. Wonder how he good he could have been with working hinges.
re: QBs getting worn down, I was watching the 1986 Western Semi, us vs. BC, and both Huff and DeWalt took a ton of hits that would be RTP today. It was quarterback tee-ball back in those days, QBs getting torpedoed by guys who were 3-4 steps away when the ball was out.
Man, that was a heartbreaker of a game ... Bombers discipline was terrible, Willard Reaves got kicked out of the game, penalties and turnovers killed every bit of momentum we had, Jim Zorn got humbled, and when Huff finally got it going in the fourth, we had no RB1 to bash in the tying touchdown from the four. But damn, Huff could hurl the ball all over the field. His rainbow throws to Tuttle and Murph in this game are things of beauty.
