William “Dub” Jones Notes

February 13, 2022

Dub Jones, a great player on all 3 Paul Brown coached Cleveland Browns’ teams that clashed with the Los Angeles Rams in the 1950, 1951 and 1955 “all the way,” (decades before Supes), NFL Title Games, is still alive and 98 years old on this day, Mr. Brown’s son Mike, the Cincinnati Bengals’ team owner and the Bengals face the Rams for a fourth time, with the NFL crown at stake.

Mr. William “Dub” Jones, (by the way the Browns had a player named “Special Delivery” Jones, evoking memories of the same name/professional wrestler, who “performed” about 30 years after,) was a standout player for the Browns from (1948-1955), thus playing on all 3 Browns’ NFL title winning teams under Brown and with the great Otto Graham as quarterback.

Later he was an assistant coach on the other Cleveland Browns’ NFL title team in 1964.

He shares the NFL record of 6 scoring touchdowns in a game and is the father of the one time, excellent NFL quarterback, Bert Jones.

Dub Jones, pictured above. It looks as though he wore Gary’s (Collins and not the television host) #86.

Mr. Jones was born 2 days shy of 40 years before Gary gathered in 3 Frank Ryan touchdown passes in the 1964 NFL Title Game. That was the last time the Browns won the crown.

Oh the difference in my interest in that game and the one to be played today!!
