There were times when he could really sling it on target like a rocket, but touch was always an issue. I suspect that the accuracy issues came from taking so much abuse running the ball. It just isn't possible to get beatings on your shoulder repeatedly and have it NOT affect your throws. Yes, there were QBs who ran the ball and played well, but most were artists at avoiding hard hits, such as Gill. Lord ran like a FB.
I still love that guy. Incredibly underrated. If I ever met him, I'd buy him drinks all night for as long as he'd tell war stories.
