He was a big player.  It took a long time to come up with a replacement to fill the hole he left here. 

 

If he ever had a real QB throwing him the ball, he would have been an perennial all pro, if not a HoF player.

Another great 80!

 

if someone can tell me the name of the play in the video starting at about 1:30 in the embedded video, I got your first beer at the stadium whatever game you come to.

You mean something like this? From the video it looked like Jerry Butler ran that sort of route opposite of the QB rollout.  Every team has a variation of this and always runs it from the 10 yard line for some reason.

Sorry I was not very good at conveying what I meant! 
 

end of the first half, there is what we call today a “ Hail Mary” that Butler catches for a touchdown. 
 

the Bills called it something else,,, something I still use today! 
 

anyone know what is is without looking it up?

Gotcha, that predates me by a few years.  I remember Steve Freeman, but that is my extent of early 80s Bills teams.  It wasn't until Kelly arrived when I was old enough (10) to understand what was happening.

Ding ding ding ! We have a winner! No one knows that! 
 

You my friend have a stadium beer coming your way! Just let me know what game ya coming to ! 
 

as @Augie and @Seasons1992 know, I get in the stadium early so easy to meet up!

 

I may be wrong, but think that was the first year that it was legal for two offensive players to touch the ball consecutively on a forwards pass , rule was a reaction to the Immaculate Reception ! Man, I remember going nuts that day for the top row when that play happened.

I suggest @Nanker use extreme caution if this meet up is arranged for a certain remote restroom.
