San Antonio 20 at Jacksonville 0
1984 Week 8 - Saturday, April 14, 1984
San Antonio Gunslingers(1-6) at Jacksonville Bulls(2-5)(-6.5)
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - San Antonio coach Gil Steinke said his defense hadn't been lacking but the offense was ineffective en route to a 1-6 United States Football League record before meeting the Jacksonville Bulls.
After the Gunslingers dispatched the Bulls 20-0 Saturday night, racking up their largest score ever, Steinke said things finally clicked and his team is 2-6.
"It certainly was satisfying to have have both sides of the ball to play well," said Steinke, whose team's highest previous score came in a 14-10 victory over Oakland three weeks ago. "We knew we could do it, but of course to do it is a different thing."
Jacksonville coach Lindy Infante, whose team had dropped four close games before collapsing against the Gunslingers, said: "The only thing I'm pleased about is that I'm still alive ... It was just a lousy football game on our part -- outplayed, outcoached by our opponent."
The Gunslingers scored on their first possession of the game when Scott Stamper scampered 26 yards off the right side, capping an 80-yard try with a little more than five minutes to play in the first quarter.
Quarterback Rick Neuheisel went over from less than a yard out late in the third quarter, and Nick Mike-Mayer added field goals of 45 and 48 yards.
The Bulls, also 2-6, were inside the 25-yard line three times but were
unable to score. Jacksonville quarterback Robbie
Mahfouz was sacked twice, was intercepted once and fumbled twice in
costly turnovers before being replaced by backup Ken Hobart in
.the fourth quarter.
