    Billy "white shoes" Johnson was one of Moon's receivers from those days I believe. And maybe Ernest Givens?

    Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne were a pretty good duo.

    No, Ernest Givens, Drew Hill,Haywood Jeffries and Curtis Duncan were the main guys, Billy was earlier I'm pretty sure

    without cheating...I think the Oilers had besides Billy: Burrough- Roaches- Barber

  • dallasactuarydallasactuary Posts: 4,081 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Alworth and Garrison deserve a mention.

    This is for you @thisistheshow - Jim Rice was actually a pretty good player.

    Nobody!.... Just because I'm A sentimental softy kind of guy.....I loved those Raider teams back then. I thought Beiletnikof was the Best! Along with Ray Guy, Ken Stabler, Hell,...the whole crew! Nothing will ever change my mind. I was very fortunate at that time to be able to attend the Raider games in Oakland. Win or lose it was always down and dirty football! The game was in a transition then.....The Raiders and Steelers in the 1970's were the last teams to play old style football...... You'll never see it again... Gone forever..... The highlight? I got two free tickets to the Raiders/ Vikings 1976 SB game!...


    BING! BAM! BOOM!!!!

    Said b4, but Rice-Taylor was the best I ever saw. Didn't hurt to have a great qb throwing to them.........

    Yes, Spacey, I can't argue with your pick! From mid 1970's to the 1980's I had a job that took me to the San Francisco Bay Area every weekend. Saturday to Monday morning. If the Raiders weren't in town.....the Niners were!......Never missed A game!
    Baby, It was football HEAVEN!.....Joe Montana is my favorite all time QB!....

    One of the best parts about it all?......The weather up there is so fantastic during football season! It's unreal!....Best Fall and Winter weather in the whole U.S.A.! Blue skys, White clouds,... The colors are magnificent! Best setting for FOOTBALL..... and CHEERLEADERS! .....L.A. Lambs football weather (at the Memorial Coliseum) comes in second place......Just like everything they do concerning the Niners!

    Don't Forget Dwight Clark...
    He Was There Too....

    THE CATCH!...

    SWEET BABY JESUS!

    Raymond Berry and Lenny Moore deserve a mention, too, if only to remind everyone that the NFL, and outstanding receivers, existed before there was a Super Bowl.

    Nice one... :)

    Little known fact re Joe Montana
    He hi jumped 6'10" in college. What an athlete.
    I was a 49er season ticket holder from early 80's til mid 90's. John Taylor was the perfect wingman for Rice. Taylor was a smoother receiver to watch and he kept the pressure off Rice. Along with the TE out of Santa Clara. Brent Jones. And the RB, Roger Craig. Other teams didn't know where to double team.
    My tickets were right next to the 49er wives section. Oh baby. My wifey didn't like to go because she was sitting 4 rows away from a Miss America Padgett. That she wasn't invited to, lol.

    Have a nice day

    Yesterday this comment inspired me to do a little research, and that led me to this book. I just looked for a free PDF version and it opened on my computer. I am sharing it here in case anyone is interested...
