Also had a hard time passing a shot of liquor as well. 

The night before a game who drank more liquor. Stabler or Namath? Can you imagine if social media was around when those guys played?

There were stories of John Riggens and the Hogs consuming mass quantities of beer after practice. No one else was invited.

I can’t imagine the insane shit Stabler or L.T got into during their primes lol.

They didn't call him "the snake" for his scrambling abilities.

At Alabama he ran in a S shape from side to side of field in his scrambles as a snake slithers from side to sdie:

 

"Jackie Sherill, who also played with Stabler, said the first thing he thinks of when he remembers Stabler is his nickname, "Snake."

"That goes back to describing his running ability, like a snake" Sherrill said."

173 TDs

220 INT

 

 

Eh?

There probably should be some context to era's of football.  The rules were different - DB's could contact receivers downfield, the route trees were much more limited, much more deep passes (lower % of success).

 

Skill set wise, he was a lot like Marino but in the 60's and early 70's.
