The old Cossell MNF highlights they replayed. Those few seconds of Otis, then Henry Marshall, that was great. In those days the MNF halftime was often the only chance I'd get to see my Chiefs and my favorite player, OT.

Yeah that was really cool, the man looked like a beast compared to the defensive backs he had to go up against. I forget Cosell's exact wording there but he said "the most amazing wide reciever you'll ever see" or something like that. It'd be cool to watch a full game from that era.

Sounded great with Cosell doing the voice-over. :thumb:
Considering all the freaking BS that goes on now during halftime --the technology to assimilate clips in real time, the nifty graphics, the interviews, etc.-- all jammed between Lexus commercials ad infinitum makes me realize the halftime shows from the 70's and early 80's were something I really used to look forward to even if the game sucked. Cosell doing the voice-over gave those segments a life of their own.

Despite the fact that I do not feel Otis belongs in the hall of fame he is in my top four Chiefs players right after Lanier, Priest, and Bobby Bell.

Chiefs who definitely belong in the HOF, but probably won't make it:
1) Ed Budde
2) Otis Taylor
3) Johnny Robinson

Chiefs who have a decent shot someday:
1) Derrick Thomas
2) Will Shields
3) Willie Roaf
4) Priest Holmes
5) Tony Gonzo

I'm holding out hope for OT and JR, but you're right. Probably will never happen.

yeah, why the fook can we NOT see a game from that era? I dont have the NFL network, but damn, old games from the 60's and 70's would be cool to watch.

RJ, Same way here dude. I was able to to talk my mom into lettign stay up until the half time highlights were over and then I had to go to bed.

Howard Cossell was a true celebrity in the sports jounalism world.
He was brilliant. Him and Ali togeather were funny and entertaining.

How in the F*CK is Johnny RObinson not in the HOF? His stats are better than half the Safeties in the HOF right now (57 INT's!!!!!). Not to mention, he was one of the best all-around athlete's of his day. JR was a HB his first two seasons in Detroit and didn't start playing S until his 3rd season. So, he averaged nearly 5 int's/season over his career. Don't even get me started on Otis Taylor. My annual pilgrimage to get OT in the HOF has started yet......

No doubt about it.

Johny played in SB IV with two fx'd ribs. Picked off a ball.

Him sitting on the muddy ground of Tulane Stadium clutching that ball with the raised No.1 finger is a memory I've cherished.

I've got a tape of a MNF game from 1970 between Baltimore and KC.

Ot is hurt and did not play, but JR picks off 2 Unitas passes.

Pretty sweet deal.
