The Most Well-Traveled Team

Buford Jordan was the standout of the New Orleans backfield in 1984.

The Breakers began in Boston in little Nickerson Field, which held just 20,500 people.  Dick Coury's club almost made the playoffs with John Walton at quarterback and Charlie Smith gaining over 1,000 receiving yards.  Linebacker Marcus Marek led a solid defense. They couldn't find a better field in New England and headed for the New Orleans Superdome in '84. Despite Buford Jordan's 1,276 yards and Frank Lockett's emergance as a big-play receiver, they fell to 8-10. When the league announced they were moving to the fall in a year, the Breakers had to vacate the Superdome and wound up in Portland, Oregon. Despite an anemic offense, the discipline and toughness of Dick Coury's squad gave them respectability.
