Oiler Games
 
The naming our 3 fav players thread made me want to post these...

Oilers break losing streak at 18. Happy days are here again!

Fred Willis was one of my favorite players back then but then again I had a bunch of favorites from those years. He scores the winning TD on a screen pass...a Fred Willis specialty.

I actually downloaded a bunch of the 1980 Oilers games a few weeks ago, but I haven't gotten around to putting them up on TTalkTube. Thought it might be interesting to watch some of them.

Dean Steinkuhler may have been the best lineman on the team...with both Mike Munchak and Bruce Matthews. That Oiler team was loaded offensively. Two HOF linemen, Dean Steinkuhler (would have been another HOF player if not for his knees), Heisman Trophy winning rb Mike Rozier, & HOF QB Warren Moon.

I've got a DVD from Ebay of the Oilers / Cowboys 1979 Thanksgiving game. Earl ran for 195 yards, 2 TDs, and the Oilers won 30-24.

I think I gave Herv a copy many years ago. I need to find it and make you a copy, too, Vinny and Hookem.

Do you know how to rip a copy of it and upload it to a share? I could put it up on the Tube if you can do that.

Wow, that is before my time. Of course, I was born already long ago but was still in Japan. Did not know John Matuszak was an Oiler.

oh yeah, his trade to KC brought us Nose Tackle Curley Culp. If I remember correctly we made the trade at mid-season and we were either winless or had one win. I think Sid Gillman was the HC and Bum was the DC at the time. We finished the season .500 or so. Curley Culp put Bum's defense over the top and Bum Phillips took over for Sid the next year.

Thanks for info Vinny. That's how we ending up getting Culp! He is one of my Fav player on D side along with Dr Doom.

Awesome DB and so crazy that you mentioned that because that is my all time favorite Oilers game. That's the one I was looking for when I found the Seattle OT game. I looked all over Youtube and it's not there.

anytime...I was about 11 or so back then....I've followed the Oilers from earlier when they were back to back 1-13 teams. I remember always wanting the Oiler letterman jacket out of the Sears catalogue. You would see guys around school with the Cowboys jacket but not many Oiler ones. It didn't help that they were really awful colors (not to mention the team was awful at that time)...back then those jackets were this weird Lions-esque blue with Silver/grey arms and the silver helmet on the chest. They got rid of the silver and the NFL started marketing sportsgear around then.

Some old pics of the different helmets from the different eras...


Ed Biles and can anyone name the TE next to him? We traded him and got the rights to a pretty good rb in his day...

I don't know how. But, I will find that DVD in my collection and contact you to learn how to do it.

Cool, man! Hopefully you will get to see it soon.

It even has all the commercials, which are funny to see 30+ years later.

I had that jacket. It was Oilers blue with silver plastic (I assume that was plastic) sleeves and the round patch that looked like this ..

http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/m/mtIb...VQT__g/140.jpg

I wore that out and I remember my mom buying me the same jacket from Sears but a Bucs orange one. I rooted for the Bucs as a kid also because they had the same colors as La Porte HS. I think by that time Bud had fired Bum and I was really turned off of the Oilers.
