    Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers
    Location: San Diego Stadium
    Attendance: 52,596
    Weather: Cloudy 76 degrees; Wind from the SW 13 mph
    Game MVP: Charlie Joiner

    “San Diego downs shorthanded Denver. Sweeps season series.” David Warner – San Diego Tribune

    The San Diego Chargers improved to 6-0 on the season with a thumping of the Denver Broncos in southern California 34-3. The Bolts amassed 435 total yards and found the end zone four times while holding Denver to mere 95 yards of total offence. “We just played a terrific game on both sides of the ball. It’s was you practice for all week…..nice to see a game plan executed to perfection on Sunday,” commented Coach Coryell shortly after the victory. It, however, may turn out to be a costly victory as both Chuck Muncie and Dan Fouts left the game with apparent injuries. Muncie, who carried the ball 20 times for 71 yards, limped off the field after a 4 yard run with 11:18 left in the 4th Quarter. Two plays later Dan Fouts was hit by a hard charging Lyle Alzado, left the game and did not return. His backup, rookie Glenn Carano, stepped in and guided the Bolts to the end zone. Carano threw for 141 yards in the 4th quarter against a secondary that lost two additional players. Bronco starters Pete Jaquess and Steve Foley had already departed the game with apparent injuries. “Drake Garrett and Ryan Charlton did all they could against Joiner and Cathey. That was a tough loss,” mentioned Denver Coach Red Miller when the press caught up with him after the game. The weather report should have read cloudy with a chance of injury before the matchup. Joining Fouts and Munice on the side lines were Gary Parris, Billy Shields and Jim Nicholson. “By the 4th I was down to my third string tackle Cory Sweitzer,” exclaimed Offensive Line Coach Bobb McKittrick. On the Denver side of the fence, in addition to Jaquess and Foley, Coach Miller lost Brandon Kauffman and Ron Yary. Both teams were glad to see the games conclusion Sunday afternoon.

    Monday October 17, 1977

    Injury update

    The medical staff met with Coach Coryell and his group Monday morning to give them a specific injury update. Coryell and his staff were informed that tackle Billy Shields will not be available for the next 3 weeks. He has been diagnosed with a fractured foot. In addition, veteran tackle Jim Nicholson suffered a bruised ankle with 9:17 left in 4th quarter of yesterday’s game and will miss one week. “That leaves me rookie tackle Corey Sweitzer for next week’s trip to New England,” stated Offensive Line Coach McKittrick. Joining Shields and Nicholson on the on the sidelines next week are Gary Parris and Chuck Muncie. Parris was diagnosed with a mild concussion and Muncie suffered a strained ankle. Both men will miss next week’s game in New England. One positive note to come out of the meeting is that Dan Fouts should be ready for practice by Thursday and should be available for next week’s game. Also defensive end Keith Harris is making good progress and should be available to suit up this week. “Harris or Lindstrom…..that will be a game time decision,” remarked Coach Coryell during the meeting. “Let’s see how they both do in practice this week.”

    “Their calling ‘em ‘The Steel Curtain’ in Pennsylvania” – Pittsburgh Post Gazette

    The Pittsburgh Steelers improved to 6-1 on the season with a 21-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The defense was the star of the show holding the high octane Falcons out of the end zone all afternoon. Atlanta’s only score came from the special teams department. Defensive end L.C. Greenwood registered 14 tackles and linebacker Jack Lambert added 10 more. “Both men were all over the field today. Greenwood’s performance was outstanding,” added Coach Bud Carson.

    “Travis Wilson and the Chiefs dominate Jacksonville” – The Kansas City Star

    Travis Wilson put on a dominating performance Sunday afternoon throwing for 300 yards en route to a 31-3 victory over the Jacksonville Bulls. Running back Ed Davis added 91 yards on the ground and the Chiefs pounded a usually stout Bulls defense for 437 total yards. “We put it all together today. I think we sent a message to the rest of the NAFL….watch out here we come,” stated Wilson after the game. The win improved the Chiefs to 5-1 on the season.

    “Fouts among those on the field” – David Warner San Diego Tribune

    Dan Fouts is having a great ’77 campaign. Through 6 games he has a league high QBR of 112.8. He has been knocked around a bit but is working through the bumps and bruises. In Week 3 Kansas City’s Cleveland Elam planted Fouts into the turf and last Sunday Denver’s Lyle Alzado hit him in almost the same spot. This week in practice he has been watched closely, but seems to doing alright, “He is a tough nut to crack. He will be ready on Sunday,” remarked Offensive Backs Coach Earnel Durden. In addition, it was announced that veteran running back Mike Montgomery will get the start Sunday in place of injured starter Chuck Muncie. Muncie is recovering from an ankle injury. “Seems to be the same ankle that sidelined him for the Conference title game last season,” mentioned Durden. Muncie suffered an injury to his ankle in a 28-27 victory over the Washington Federals January 9, 1977. Gary Parris, who has started 84 straight games, will miss his first game in a Bolts uniform. Assistant Coach Aaron Thomas said he has complete confidence in Klein and Thaxton to carry the load on Sunday. “Both men are ready to go. I expect both of them to make the most of their situation.” Tackle Corey Sweitzer will be making his first NAFL start on Sunday. “Really….this week he is the guy and he has looked great in practice,” answered Coach Coryell when asked about his rookie tackle. It must be noted that San Diego will travel to the east coast this weekend with only one tackle on their roster. “We have options if something happens….but we are going on the assumption that nothing is going to happen,” continued Coryell with a smile.

This week, however, The bolts will be without their ace running back Chuck Muncie, who has 635 yards on the ground. Muncie currently leads the NAFL in rushing yards through seven weeks of play. Coach Coryell will be looking toward Woods to carry the bulk of the load on Sunday. Fouts and company will be facing the 10th ranked defense in the league. The New England Patriots are only allowing an average of 212 YPG passing, good for 4th in the NAFL. The group of Jackson, Beverly, Dawson, and Fox has a combined 9 interceptions on the season.

    “Special teams and defense the difference in Foxborough” – David Warner, San Diego Tribune

    Special teams and defense won the day in Foxborough. San Diego Kicker Gary Ellsworth set two team records and the defense pestered Jim Plunkett all afternoon en route to a 22-7 victory in Massachusetts. Gary Ellsworth’s five field goals broke his previous best of four he set September 5, 1976 against the Houston Oilers. Ellsworth added an extra point to his days total to finish with 16 eclipsing his previous best of 15 also set September 5, 1976. The Chargers, who offense sputtered at times, did not find the end zone once all afternoon. Ellsworth added 47and 42 yard field goals on drives that stalled. He added three more, 36, 36, and 43, from turnovers. The Bolts defense intercepted Plunkett 3 times on the afternoon all resulting in points. Rookie running back Clarence Williams added the lone Charger touchdown with a 67 yard punt return with 7:27 left in the second. “Our unit was on fire today. Both defenses played lights out. Ellsworth and Williams played outstanding,” mentioned a proud Special Teams Coach Mike Eischeid after the game. On the defensive side of ball, the ‘Bruise Brothers’ got to Plunkett 5 times and forced him to run around all afternoon. The Bolts held the NAFL passing leader to a season low 199 yards. The Patriots lone score came early in the first quarter when Plunkett found rookie wide out Stanley Morgan in the end zone for a 7 yard strike.

    The San Diego Chargers improve to 7-0 on the ’77 campaign” – David Warner, San Diego Tribune

    The Bolts are off to their best start since joining the NAFL in 1970. “There are still nine games to go in a very competitive league. It’s been a great start, now let us see how we finish,” stated Coach Coryell Monday afternoon in San Diego. “Don’t forget fellas’ last year we hit the ten game mark at 8-2 and then lost 4 of our last 6.” In addition, Coryell was informed by his medical staff that running back Mike Montgomery will not be available this week due to an ankle injury. Montgomery will join Leroy Jones and Billy Shields on the sidelines this week. On the upside it looks as though Muncie, Parris, and Nicholson will suiting up for practice this week and should be available for next Sunday’s trip to Arrowhead Stadium. Coryell also mentioned the play of tackle Corey Sweitzer, who made his first NAFL start on Sunday. “He played well in pass blocking schemes. However, he really surprised the coaching staff with his run blocking ability. He made a few mistakes, but suspect he will have a great career in the league.” When asked about whom his starting tackle next week would be Coach Coryell eluded the question, “Let’s get thru this week’s practice first.”

    League round up

    “Pitt survives scare in Charlotte improves to 7-1” - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

    Kicker Neil O’Donoghue hit a 42 yard field goal with 22 seconds left in regulation to secure a 24-21 victory over the Carolina Panthers. L.C. Greenwood and Jack Lambert again led a hard charging defense that sacked Carolina signal caller Joe Ferguson 5 times and intercepted him twice.

    “Bulls struggle drop second in a row” – Florida Times – Union

    The defending NAFL champions fell to 4-3 on the season with a 17-0 loss to division rival Cincinnati Bengals. The Bulls defense has fallen on hard times and has given up 48 points and 721 total yards in their last two matchups. “We have got to find our voice again…..and soon. We are not stopping anyone right now and out offense cannot stay on the field. I am not sure how many more three and outs I can take,” argued Head Coach Ron Waller. “If the playoffs started today, we would be out and have no chance of defending out title,” continued Waller.

    “Chiefs dominate Federals, improve to 6-1” – The Kansas City Star

    Kansas City’s Travis Wilson threw for 235 yards and running back Ed Davis added another 107 yards on the ground in a 23-7 victory over the Washington Federals. Linebackers Willie Lanier and Gary Clark combined for 17 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception.

    “Outlaws edge Wrangles in good ole’ fashion shootout” – The Oklahoman

Thomas hauled in 12 receptions for 136 yards and Glenn Davis added 93 yards on the ground in the victory. Lead man Leeman Bennett is 13-7 since taking over last season.
