    Week 1 - Sunday, February 24, 1985 Attendance: 18,828 TV: None [Note: If you want to skip all the pregame analysis forward the video to the 7:50 minute mark where the kickoff begins] The date was February 24, 1985, a battle between Jim Kelly’s Houston Gamblers and Steve Young’s Los Angeles Express, at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Originally, ABC Network was supposed to broadcast this game for the opening weekend of the USFL’s third season. Instead, the network decided to switch gears and show Doug Flutie’s first pro game, which left the Express with no TV coverage. A couple of coaches cameras were setup in the stands of the Coliseum to record some of the plays as well as provide the network with highlights.

    Saturday, May 4, 1985 Attendance: 4,912, TV: ESPN Quarterback John Reaves completed 20 of 38 passes and threw for two touchdowns in leading the Tampa Bay Bandits to a 24-14 USFL victory over the Los Angeles Express before 4,912, the smallest crowd of the season at the LA Coliseum. After failing behind early, Tampa Bay came up with 24 unanswered points in the second and third quarters, taking control of the game from the financially struggling Express. Express qb Steve Young was benched by coach Hadl for his ineffectiveness to move the offense. Backup Frank Seurer replaced Young but he had troubles of his own and didn't fare any better.

    1983 Week 1 - Sunday, March 6, 1983 Attendance: 34,002, TV: ABC The high-priced running back who left the University of Georgia a year early for a $5 million, three-year contract, did score the game's first touchdown. But he gained only 65 yards on 16 carries and by the second quarter, was largely forgotten by the crowd of 34,002 in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Instead, all eyes were on Tom Ramsey and Tony Boddie as the Los Angeles Express beat the Generals 20-15 in a season-opening United States Football League game, one of five played that Sunday. Ramsey, who played his college ball in the same stadium last year when he was the nation's college passing percentage leader, turned things around when he replaced former National Football player Mike Rae with the Express trailing 9-...

Houston's Jim Kelly set team records with 380 yards and 37 completions and 50 attempts. Steve Young also was impressive for Los Angeles as he completed 17 of 28 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns. Los Angeles Express: Years of existence: 1983-1985 Owner: Bill Daniels, Alan Harmon (1983), J. William Oldenburg (1984) Stadium: Los Angeles Coliseum (92,516) Colors: Express blue, silver, white and burgundy (burgundy and white 1985) Overall Regular Season Record: 21-33 (.389) Overall Playoff Record: 1-1 Yearly Standings and Average Home Attendances 1983: 8-10 (19,002) 1984: 10-8 (15,361) 1985: 3-15 (8,415) Of all the teams in the USFL, this one probably caused more headaches for the league than any other. By the end of the 1985 season, the Express were playing in front of intimate gatherings at the huge Los Angeles Coliseum. It got so bad that the Express ended up playing their final home game at Pierce College in the San Fernando Valley. The game drew 8,200 spectators, about double what the Express had drawn the previous two home games. Their Finest Hour: Perhaps this one should be called the team's finest hours. On June 30, 1984, the Express and the defending champion Michigan Panthers played the longest game in professional football history, a three-overtime, 93 minute and 33 second affair in exhausting heat. Finally, in the third overtime, future kick-returner extraordinaire Mel Gray scampered 24 yards for the winning touchdown. On a day when nothing came easy, Gray broke his arm on the play that gave the Express a 27-21 victory. Houston Gamblers: Years of existence: 1984-1985 Owner: Jerry Argovitz Stadium: Astrodome (50,495) Colors: Black, Gambler red, gray, white and yellow gold Overall Regular Season Record: 23-13 (.639) Overall Playoff Record: 0-2 Yearly Standings and Average Home Attendances 1984: 13-5 (28,152) 1985: 10-8 (19,120) Most football fans had not heard the term Run and Shoot before Jim Kelly and the Houston Gamblers took the field in 1984. Houston rolled up 1,162 points in two seasons, and Kelly was the triggerman. He threw for an unbelievable 5,219 yards and 44 touchdowns in his rookie season, and followed that up with 4,623 yards and 39 TDs in 1985 despite missing several games with an injury. Their finest hour: The Gamblers opened the 1985 season with high hopes to contend for the Western Conference crown, but the Steve Young-led Los Angeles Express had other ideas. L.A. jumped out to a commanding 33-13 lead with under ten minutes left in the game, but Kelly brought the Gamblers back on scoring tosses of 52, 40 and 39 yards. Kelly finished the game with a whopping 574 yards passing and five touchdowns. Few members of the intimate crowd at the Los Angeles Coliseum would ever forget Kelly's sterling performance. http://www.oursportscentral.com/usfl/index.htm

Week 1 - Sunday, February 24, 1985 Attendance: 18,828 TV: None [Note: If you want to skip all the pregame analysis forward the video to the 7:50 minute mark where the kickoff begins] The date was February 24, 1985, a battle between Jim Kelly’s Houston Gamblers and Steve Young’s Los Angeles Express, at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Originally, ABC Network was supposed to broadcast this game for the opening weekend of the USFL’s third season. Instead, the network decided to switch gears and show Doug Flutie’s first pro game, which left the Express with no TV coverage. A couple of coaches cameras were setup in the stands of the Coliseum to record some of the plays as well as provide the network with highlights. There was no audio whatsoever recorded, as these were just coaches tapes to study later. The game you are about to see, not only, did it not have any sound, there were no graphics, no game clock and not very many close up action shots of the players in regular speed. Most were shown in replays because again, this was not setup for a normal football broadcast. Producer Frankie Rosario added as many detailed graphics as possible and edited together all the available close up shots of the game. Once he had located the game audio, the race was on to finish the video. John Greer who called the game thirty years ago, along with Ed Biles, had recorded their voices on gameday. They were on cassette tapes for demo purposes. Those recordings recently were discovered and given to Anthony Nunez, a Houston Gambler historian. He has since given permission to the producer of the “USFL ForeverYouTube Channel, for use of the audio. Now, we must make you aware, John and Ed didn’t record the play by play for the entire game. There were 62 minutes of missing audio that needed to be filled in. To compensate for this, the producer provided the play by play where John and Ed did not. Finally, there was some game footage that due to severe video distortion could not be shown. You will though, see graphics at the bottom of your screen explaining what happened on the that particular play. Most of the game is intact and edited to the best quality possible. Make sure to watch the game in 720P HD. Just go to your settings on the YouTube Player and you can set it from there. We hope you enjoy it.

Los Angeles quarterback Steve Young didn't play in the second half because the Express wanted to give backup quarterback Frank Seurer a chance to play. The Renegades scores the game-winning touchdown late in the third period following an interception at Jeff George, his second of the night. George picked the ball off at the Orlando 27 and returned it 17 yards before lateraling to Victor Jackson, who scampered another 11 yards before being brought down at the Express 35. A 2-yard pass to Joey Walters and a roughness penalty put the ball at the 19-yard line. Collier hit Walters again from there for the deciding touchdown. Source: http://www.oursportscentral.com/usfl

Week 2 - Saturday, March 2, 1985 Attendance: 25,232, TV: ESPN Buford Jordan bulled for 100 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown on a four-yard run early in the fourth quarter as Portland made it’s home debut a success in downing Los Angeles 14-10. A crowd of 25,232 watched the USFL’s first Portland performance. Los Angeles Express Years of existence: 1983-1985 Owner: Bill Daniels, Alan Harmon (1983), J. William Oldenburg (1984) Stadium: Los Angeles Coliseum (92,516) Overall Regular Season Record: 21-33 (.389) Overall Playoff Record: 1-1 Yearly Standings and Average Home Attendances 1983: 8-10 (19,002) 1984: 10-8 (15,361) 1985: 3-15 (8,415) Of all the teams in the USFL, this one probably caused more headaches for the league than any other. By the end of the 1985 season, the Express were playing in front of intimate gatherings at the huge Los Angeles Coliseum. It got so bad that the Express ended up playing their final home game at Pierce College in the San Fernando Valley. The game drew 8,200 spectators, about double what the Express had drawn the previous two home games. Prior to the 1984 season, J. William Oldenburg bought the team, and he and general manager Don Klosterman assembled one of the greatest crops of young talent around. Tops on the list was BYU quarterback Steve Young, who signed a whopping $40 million lifetime contract. Young had the benefit of three great young offensive linemen in Mark Adickes, Gary Ruether, and Gary Zimmerman. New coach John Hadl oversaw the talented bunch to a playoff berth and all the way to the Western Conference final. They fell to the Arizona Wranglers, 35-23, but put up a great fight. The future of the Express looked very bright. Unfortunately, it all unraveled. First, the people of Los Angeles didn't care at all about the team no matter how exciting they might be. Second, some of Oldenburg's financial dealings caught up with him, and he had to surrender the team to the league. The Express were suddenly ownerless. Third, injuries hit the team hard. The Express stumbled through their final year, barely finishing. Without any money to replace injured players and several others playing not to get hurt, the Express sunk to the bottom of the league. It got so bad Young had to play one game at running back. Not many people in Los Angeles even knew the team died, and Young bought out the rest of his huge contract so he could jump to the NFL. Portland Breakers Years of existence: 1983-1985 Owner: George Matthews, Randy Vataha (1983), Joseph Canizaro (1984-84) Stadium: Nickerson Field (20,535) 1983, Superdome (69,658) 1984, Civic Stadium (32,500) 1985 Overall Regular Season Record: 25-29 (.463) Overall Playoff Record: 0-0 Yearly Standings and Average Home Attendances 1983: 11-7 (12,817) 1984: 8-10 (30,557) 1985: 6-12 (19,919) Once the USFL announced its move the fall, the Breakers had to leave their new home and continued their trek westward, landing in Portland, Oregon. The year 1985 was not a year Breakers' fans would like to remember. The offense was last in the league with just 275 points. Jordan led the way with 817 yards, but the passing game struggled under Matt Robinson and Doug Woodward following the retirement of Walton. It was a testament to the team's character and Coury's determination that the team made it as far as it did.
