The Raiders were putting the finishing touches on their preparation for tomorrow’s game against the Broncos, but according to Eddie Erdelatz, there weren’t going to be any significant personnel changes.
“How do you improve on a winner?” he asked, rhetorically.
Nevertheless, there were a couple of changes and the coaching staff was excited about them. Halfback Bob Keyes, who had been added to the team just before they left on the road trip, hadn’t had a chance to play against the Oilers, but Erdelatz commended his ability to get up to speed and looked forward to using him tomorrow.
The other recent addition, guard John Dittrich, was making a good impression, too. “Dittrich’s a real smart kid and after just one practice we decided he would be ready to go against the Broncos,” said line coach Marty Feldman, “He picked up our stuff right away and he reported in top condition, so I see no reason why he shouldn’t do a good job for us.”
In other good news, the training staff reported that Ron Warzeka and Dalton Truax would both be available to play after missing the Houston game because of unspecified injuries.
