  1. I don't know if there's been anything like that in the NFL since. It's a little before my time, but the more I've learned and seen it was a truly remarkable era. So much love for the team and the team loved the city. Bum really tied it all together. He threw a nice up field block there! Not bad for an undersized 260lb (wet) guard. lol Classic Earl run. He still agonizes over that Renfro overturned TD... As I'm sure all Oiler fans do
  2. Former father in law I should say, but we are still friendly particularly since he's my daughter's grandfather. He was replaced by Bruce Matthews (after Earl rolled on him and blew out his knee--ironically ending his career) and went on to play a year in the USFL with a rookie QB named Steve Young. Played with some really good QBs https://www.upi.com/Archives/1983/12/16/The-Houston-Oilers-waived-10-year-guard-Ed-Fisher-at/8333440398800/
  3. My father in law blocked for Earl in every game Earl wore an Oilers uniform. Everybody loved Bum. I doubt he'd say Bum ruined Earl. Those were the times when football was still a hard-nosed game with much less money at stake. Earl was doing what he wanted to do and Bum obliged. I don't think Earl regrets how he played the game so this question isn't really fair. Today's game and standards are different so I don't think they can be compared.
