He was the most prolific place-kicker in Baltimore Colts history, a rugged miner's son with coal-black hair, a snarly look and a square-toed shoe that booted 107 field goals for the team in its heyday. Famous, Lou Michaels was not. Other Colts made more spectacular kicks. Steve Myhra's field goal sent the 1958 NFL championship game into sudden death, and Jim O'Brien's three-pointer won the 1971 Super Bowl. But no kicker spent more time here with the tee than Michaels, who played six seasons (1964-1969)

F or Bobby Boyd, the nightmares have subsided. Forty-one years after Super Bowl III, the Baltimore Colts' All-Pro cornerback can finally go the night without waking in panic, thoughts of The Upset haunting his sleep. It took nearly this long for Boyd to shrug off the Colts' 16-7 loss to Joe Namath and the New York Jets in January 1969, a seminal moment in NFL lore and one that often is rehashed when the Super Bowl nears. The ESPN flashbacks started early this year, thanks to Sunday's AFC championship matchup between the Jets and Indianapolis Colts - a showdown whose hype has salted the old wounds of Baltimore players and fans alike.

"If - in your lifetime - you get one Johnny Unitas, you're way ahead of the game. There's only one Johnny Unitas. The fact that Baltimore had him as their quarterback, they should never, ever complain about being left out." Raymond Berry, Baltimore Colts 1955-1967 "He's the greatest thing to ever happen to this city." Art Donovan, Baltimore Colts 1950, 1953-1961 "Johnny was a master of the game and the king of the last two minutes. No lead was safe if you were playing against Johnny."
