Bert Jones: Forgotten QB in NFL history?

in
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

This fall, when the NFL reconvenes for its annual skirmishes, a significant and yet little noted chapter will be added to its legacy of great quarterbacks.
It won’t attract much, if any, attention on the jabber fests — talk shows — or a barrage of entries on Twitter or other social media outlets.
“The Forgotten Quarterback” will largely fade into oblivion, reserved for historians to correctly evaluate his impact on the game.
Hard to believe — time moves quickly — but this is the 35th anniversary of the retirement of Bert Jones.

However, there were definitely some challenges to being there, and one I was happy to relinquish to Tom — driving our rental car. They drive on the wrong side of the road while sitting on the wrong side of the car. So while fiercely independent and happy to pull my own weight along the way, that driving business had to fall squarely on Tom’s shoulders.
