I hate it when I'm wrong, but it does happen occasionally. My age must be having an effect on my memory. Duane Thomas carried the ball 18 times in that game.
I still blame Landry for that one. Morton had an injured hand and could barely throw. Staubach was on the bench watching, but Morton was the "starter". I guess Landry thought he gave the team the "best chance to win." He realized he was wrong the next year and Staubach quarterbacked the boys to their first SB win.
That was not a catch. The ball landed and bounced off the receiver's (Bailey?) lap. It lay there for a fraction of a second and in slow motion you can say it was a catch if you're a total Indy homer or want a lot of attention, but at full speed it was obvious the receiver was surprised the ball landed where it did and let it fall to the ground.
It was Mel Renfro.
