1986 & 1987 Bills - GM Pat McGroder (PJM)

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Jul 16, 2012 9:10 pm

General Manager Pat McGroder passed away in February 1986. The Bills paid tribute to him with a PJM decal in an unusual place...and they did it for BOTH the 1986 and 1987 seasons.
1986 (blue facemasks)


1987 (white facemasks)





Anybody know why Jim Kelly used 2 different facemask styles during both years?

...San Diego will wear a 55 decal for Junior Seau this season.

Something to keep our eyes peeled for...

In Super Bowl XV (Raiders-Eagles), both teams had a two inch yellow rectangle on the center ridge on the rear of the helmet to symbolize support for the American hostages in Iran.

In Super Bowl XVIII (Raiders-Redskins), Redskins had a tiny SB XVIII logo on the left rear of the helmet, between the feather tip and the outer white stripe. The Raiders had NO SB XVIII helmet decal.

1981 Super Bowl XV - Raiders & Eagles

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Jul 16, 2012 11:32 pm

Despite the Silver, Black, and Green, yellow was the color of the day in support of the American hostages in Iran.
The Super Dome had it.


Pete Rozelle had it.


Even the microphones had it.


So did the Eagles and Raiders, as Tim described, on the back of the helmets' center ridge/stripeline.
On the Raiders, it interrupted the black stripe directly between the rear numbers.

1984 Super Bowl XVIII - Redskins

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Jul 16, 2012 11:38 pm

Thank you Tim. Redskins only. Did they make their own logo in nothing but red/burgundy?


I found this screengrab from a UW link back in 2008.


On first look , it looks like the logo is burgundy. But if you save the photo and zoom in on it really tightly you can see how the burgundy from the helmet is encroaching on the logo due to a 'lack of HD technology' just like it is on the bottom left of the yellow circle on the main logo. The correct parts of the SB logo are definitely NOT burgundy but blue like the normal Super Bowl logo that year.

1991-present - NFL Shield

Post  Bill Schaefer on Tue Jul 17, 2012 1:32 pm

The addition of the NFL Shield to the helmet - in the form of a decal - just happened to coincide with its addition to the hip area on the pants in 1991.

Sorry no confirmation yet on the Vinny Bucs UM tribute stickers yet.. Video is too blurry to say for certain anything yet.

And, Overtsreet's was the first I remember, too.

2009 Raiders - Marquis Cooper 95

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Jul 30, 2012 4:27 pm

In March 2009, Marquis Cooper and 2 others were presumed to have drowned in the Gulf of Mexico when their boat capsized.
The Raiders wore his #95 decal on their helmets for the entire season.

1992 VARIOUS - Jerome Brown (JB) & Shane Curry (SC)

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Jul 30, 2012 5:54 pm

As documented several posts ago, when Jerome Brown and Shane Curry passed away prior to the 1992 season, their teams (Philly and Indy respectively) wore decals memorializing them. It was also noted that several University of Miami Hurricanes playing for Jimmy Johnson's Dallas Cowboys chose to wear Jerome's #98 and Shane's #44 - the numbers they wore at Miami. A photo of Vinny Testaverde showed that at some point during the '92 season (not the entire season), he added "JB" and "SC" decals to his helmet.


As a Miami grad who was there at that time, I remembered the team wearing decals that year also.
This was the best photo from that season that I could uncover showing the same "JB" and "SC" decals wore by Vinny.


At this time it is unknown how many other 'Canes in the NFL that season also wore either the "JB" & "SC" as the Hurricanes and Vinny T did or the "98" and "44" as certain Dallas Cowboys did.

Dennis Byrd decal on Buffalo

Post  Bill Schaefer on Thu Aug 02, 2012 11:12 am

Mitch Frerotte is caught still wearing the Dennis Byrd decal during the famous 1992 Wildcard game vs. Houston.



As well as Kent Hull...


...and Will Wolford


Just a thought...
Hull was the center, Frerotte was left guard, and Wolford was the left tackle. Yet Glenn Parker (RG) and Howard Ballard (RT) did not have the decal. I just wonder if Dennis Byrd primarily played on the defense's right side over the Bills' left side leading to them wearing the decal.

Sorry, Bill, I think I just realized you weren't so much looking for a specific screenshot of 1992 Vinny -- you proved the existence of the stickers already, I see now you were more after exactly at what point during 1992 season did he start wearing them, right? I have, I believe, all the games from that season, I will see if I can pinpoint exactly when they added them, even if I can't find a good screenshot.

Post  Bill Schaefer on Sat Aug 04, 2012 8:46 am

Yeah, I knew he wore them for at least the last 2 games - @ SF & @ Phoenix but before that I don't know.

By finding the Hurricanes photos I know what they looked like so that's taken care of too.

I also wanted to see if anyone else on the Bucs (Craig Erickson or Alonzo Highsmith) was wearing them.

Others that could have been wearing them in games vs the Bucs...
Bennie Blades (DB) & Brett Perriman (WR) - Detroit - 9/27 & 10/25
Randall Hill (WR) - Phoenix - 9/6 & 12/27
Wesley Carroll (WR) - NO - 11/1
Cleveland Gary (RB) - LA RAMS - 12/6
Willis Peguese (DL/LB) - IND - 10/4

All played the Bucs in 1992.

I keep trying to remind myself to see if I can find a 1992 Browns highlight reel to see if Bernie Kosar wore them as well.

Well, just got done scanning the 12/6/92 ESPN game vs L.A. Rams, and I can confirm Vinny did wear them..



...and so did #27



...after looking up the roster to see that #27 was FS Derrick Fullington, who did indeed go to U. of M., I see that along with Fullington, Testaverde, Erickson, and Highsmith, the Bucs also had an OL #67 Mike Sullivan from Miami...

Could not confirm any others from this game, but Cleveland Gary of the Rams was not wearing them...

Will check more games after I get some sleep

Ok, one more, can confirm Vinny & Fullington did not have them for Week 7 at Chicago..





So we've narrowed it down between Weeks 8-13

Well, looking at Week 10 vs. Minnesota, thought I had struck out as Vinny was in a baseball cap as Steve DeBerg started, and I couldn't see #27, but late in the game randomly and amazingly I spotted Craig Erickson on the sidelines wearing his helmet while Sam Wyche was calling a play!

So I assume they didn't wear them in that game, however I don't know if that is an assumption since we don't know if Erickson wore them at all, however since #27 did, Vinny wasn't only one.

This just in....

Vinny did not wear them Week 12 at San Diego...



or Week 13 vs Green Bay in Milwaukee...



but he did have them Week 17 at Phoenix...



So I would close the book and say all of the Bucs' U of M players wore them just the final four weeks... Weeks 14-17. When I get a chance I will watch the whole Rams-Bucs SNF game and see if Mike Patrick & Joe Theismann mention them at all since they apparently added them that week.

To paraphrase Mike Singletary, "I like this kind of research."

Thanks, Rob.
What a horrible way to have to spend the day! Sad

The Cowboys were wearing theirs for the 10/25 game @ RAIDERS.

Any chance Perriman or Blades (Lions) were wearing them - at least for the second Bucs game?
Or Randall "Thrill" Hill in the last game for the Cards?

I think I got an even better close-up for you.... I'm not sure you did it justice with that last graphic...

No sticker for Blades or Perriman, although all Lions had other sticker mentioned earlier in thread for first Tampa Bay-Detroit game of the year.



Couldn't get a good shot of Perriman, but he didn't have it either. Did, however, get a good shot of Wayne Fontes ready for the London Olympics, about 20 years too early.
