Except for Super Bowl III.
A lot of people forget that Earl was the starting QB for the Miami Dolphins throughout much of their 17-0 run in 1972. He seemed to have a knack for either finding the right situation or having the right situation find him. Be it the 1968 Colts or the 1972 Dolphins, he signed on as a backup before those respective seasons and took each team on historic runs.
I was talking with a neighbor a couple of days after the Ravens lost to the Titans, and he was saying that game kept bringing back memories of Super Bowl III. Like the Colts on that fateful day in Miami in 1969, the Ravens moved the ball well last Saturday, but something always seemed to happen before they could score. And like the Colts, unfortunately, once the Ravens got behind, they seemed to go away from what had worked all season and became pass-happy. Being a prohibitive favorite can have psychological consequences if things aren't going your way.
Fair comparison of games. That game like last Saturday was hard to swallow. A significantly better team lost each time.
I actually, got a chance to talk to John Unitas, about that game, many years later. John told me, it was the strangest game he was ever part of..
He also said, if he had been given the entire second half, the Colts would have won. John was in no way bragging. He was sure.
