Was Allen Pitts related to the great Ernie Pitts?
Also, why has Ernie Pitts been all but forgotten over the years? Even in the latest hardcover Bomber history book that went on sale last year his name is mentioned nowhere.
And when you’re discussing great QB/receiver combos, can you just forget about Kenny Ploen and Ken Neilsen? Heck, even without Ploen at the helm, Neilsen went on to win the Schenley award as Most Outstanding Canadian. And that was at the most dismal period in Bomber history, when John Schneider was QB and Joe Zaleski was at the reins.
