Bottom line: We won’t pin the tail solely on Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and Alan Page for all those Super busts, but as the most celebrated team members, they deserve the most blame.
A common theme was their complete and utter inability to stop the run. Dude, the Chiefs, Dolphins, Steelers and Raiders ran over them like a buffalo stampede — 215.5 yards on 51 attempts per game.
The truth is, Page and Marshall were woefully undersized, Eller was one-dimensional, and as a group, their nickname was largely undeserved.
