Birmingham 41 at Chicago 7


1984 Week 13 - Friday, May 18, 1984
Birmingham Stallions(10-2)(-8) at Chicago Blitz(4-8)
Attendance: 8,578

CHICAGO (AP) -- With their star running back Joe Cribbs only a memory now, the Birmingham Stallions have had to rebuild their offense virtually from scratch -- and whatever they've done paid off Friday night.

"I think the world goes on, and no one guy, whether it's a player or coach, is a team by himself," Birmingham Coach Rollie Dotsch said after his club romped to a 41-7 victory over the Chicago Blitz. "Football is a team sport, and our team plays together as a team."

It was the their second game without Cribbs, who was the cornerstone of the Stallions offense before he walked out in a contract dispute leading the United States Football League in rushing.

Dotsch has turned to quarterback Cliff Stoudt, who completed 17 of 25 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns. And Stoudt repeatedly turned to receiver Jim Smith, who hauled in nine passes for a 104 yards.
