"He had great targets," said John Guillory, a rookie cornerback who had the frustrating job of trying to cover Lance Alworth and Gary Garrison. "You can't cover Alworth and Garrison all night. They beat us bad on a couple of crossing patterns early and then we got overcautious."
"We made mistakes," said Paul Brown. "You expect a young club to make mistakes. Alworth and Garrison caught a lot of passes on us, but they catch passes on a lot of people. But we played hard and we never quit and I think this is a fine young group of men. I was proud of them. You don't like to lose, but we didn't lose any pride in getting beat tonight. The Chargers were fired up. They knew we were for real."
So does the rest of the AFL.
