From David Maraniss' 1999 biography of Vince Lombardi, When Pride Still Mattered:
Old pros might not make mistakes, but relatively new pro coaches do. Conerly killed as much of the clock as possible in careful drives, but the Bears came backk on two sensational touchdown catches by the winged Harlon Hill, and the game ended in a tie, 17 to 17. It was a lesson that Lombardi filed away for the rest of his career. Never try to sit on the ball for an entire quarter, needlessly stifling an offense. "From then on," Lombardi said later, "we played every game like the score was nothing to nothing."
