Cards 1972 Edit

1-3-1 Iowa State’s Tim Van Galder was a future selection of the Cardinals in 1966 and then spent three years on the St. Louis practice squad and two years in the military before he finally got a chance to play in 1972. Van Galder started the first three games for the Cardinals that year, but led them to just 39 points and one victory before losing his job to Jim Hart and then Gary Cuozzo. Acquired by the Jets in 1973, Tim lived for a while with Joe Namath but never played for New York. Van Galder was a fun loving free spirit who has had a long career as a sportscaster in St. Louis.
