With the quality of those helmets, he might be safer NOT wearing one!!  Smiley

Back then you wasn't supposed to rough up the quaterback during practice.  Quarterbacks wore plaid shirts so you didn't forget.  Therefore, he didn't need a helmet.

'Course during the game, "piling on" was the norm. 

When did they outlaw piling on?

It drew a flag in "The Longest Yard" in '74.

Yeah, high-scoring games weren't all that typical back then. Roll Eyes

  When I was in Korea I remember hearing an older SGT comment on Joe Namath throwing for 200 yards in a game, "...that reckless hippie. Y.A. Tittle is turning over in his grave. QB's today are made of cheap porcelain". Of course, being a sergeant I didn't argue that YA was still living.

Well, he did make the commercial for pantyhose that one time.

He is one of the best; he tries to make 4 or 5 Alabama games a year (Roll Tide) and is very approachable. I have met him on several occasions.

As I understand it Football players regularly wear panty hose under their uniform pants.  It keeps their skin taught and hard to grip.  Helps keep the body warm in the winter too.

I don't suspect anyone had the guts to harass Namath about those L'egg's he was wearing.

Pierre, is that one of those rare nickel tricks?  If so, you're funny . . funny as a crutch.
