Along the Way

The Man with the Golden Arm

How to sign a NFL #1 draft pick?  Use tarter sauce! Bill always says if you are facing a difficult task, act as if you cannot fail; take along the tarter sauce!  If you are going after Moby Dick, take the tarter sauce!  - In otherwords, . Sid Gilman was his tarter sauce. Bill brought Sid Gilman the renowned father of the forward pass, out of retirement to act as Steve's personal coach. Sid personally changed the face of football.  

In addition, it also took  a 40 million dollar contract - as reported in Sports Illistrated, the largest contract in sports history, but Sid Gilman was the icing on the cake. 

That's the short version of how Steve Young the hottest ticket in the NFL, became the star quarterback in the USFL with the LA Express.
