Here are the 1971 Cardinals. They sure have a lot of all-stars for a team that finished 8-5-1, but I guess that record was a real accomplishment for a team that finished 4-9-1 in every other season between 1969 and 1973.
After the '71 season, he was traded to Green Bay for running back Donny Anderson, and was the Packers' top back for 3 seasons. Lane moved on to the Chiefs, where he played his final 4 seasons (1975-78). He was the starter only in 1976, leading the NFL with 66 receptions that season.
He moved on to the Cardinals in 1970, starting at cornerback for 3 seasons. Miller finished his career as a backup with the Lions in 1973. His brother Mel was a running back for the Lions from 1967-73.
Wilson was a 7th-round pick in 1960, and was the Cardinals' starting free safety for his entire 13-year career (1960-72). He made the Pro Bowl every season from 1962 to 1970 (except 1964), and led the NFL with 10 interceptions in 1966. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1978.
