Default 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.

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.

In that clip the Oilers committed 3 personal fouls for going after the QBs legs, one for driving the QBs head in the ground, and one horse collar.

The NFL front office would have made a lot of money in that game.

Love this picture. I thought it might be from the Thanksgiving game but seeing #8 back there and the red facemasks tells me this was probably a preseason game in the early 80s.

All I know is that whenever I look at that picture, I can't help but think that a 'Gurls defensive guy is about to get KNOCKED the (bleep) OUT!

But #8? Was that Archie Manning????

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.

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...


Fred Willis


Kenny Burrough

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 ..



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.
