No, thats a subset. We've moved on to all "history" now.
The OP’s video was blocked from being embedded on another website (other than YouTube). You can still click the link and watch on YouTube.
I saw that one on tv, I gotta agree.
I also saw the other 2 NFL plays on the tube...and the Heidi bowl.
If you're going to distil the NFL down into single play, why on earth would you make it a fluke?
Show me a mazy run, by Barry Sanders, or a barnstormer, from Jim Brown. Perhaps Steve Young, finding space from nowhere?
Perhaps Dick Butkus, Mike Curtis or Ronnie Lott, stoning a runner? Lawrence Taylor or Richard Dent, crushing a QB?
Marino to Clayton? The aerobatics of Lynn Swann, or the sinuous running of Jerry Rice?
Something that gives you a flavour of the game- not a lucky break.
It’s a bit of an overload, but the sports floor at the Heinz Museum in Pittsburgh is great. I am sure that you have been there.
No kidding!?!? Wow. I was 12 and watching it on TV and the thing I was struck by was the overwhelming confusion on the part of the refs. And we had a lot of real time information and about 20 slo-mo replays - I can’t imagine how confusing it must have been in the stadium. But tv coverage and the resolution and slo-mo was really primitive in those days and it was really hard to tell if anyone else had touched the ball. I just remember Tatum arguing furiously, but futilely, to get it rule no completion, claiming he never touched the ball. It was a wild play.
for me...it was desean jackson returning a punt against the giants for a td
Several connections between Ken Stabler and Dave Casper rank above that play, for me.
Franco Harris and I attended high school together, in Mount Holly, NJ. He was a senior when I was a freshman. Franco was a soft-spoken, gentle giant.
In the years following Franco's graduation, his accomplishments at Penn State would be announced during intermissions at our home football games.
Many years later, while I was watching my brother-in-law pitch, while being scouted by major league baseball organizations, who comes walking up to watch the game? None other than Franco Harris, sporting his Super Bowl ring, and his friend, Lionell Mitchell.
Class acts, all the way.
Another look at the Tyree 'Helmet catch' and how it really happened:
What about Biletnikoff?
Another [former] Redskins fan here. I still recall Darrell Green (defensive back) returning a punt for a touchdown against Chicago in the playoffs, 1988. He tore a rib cartilage hurdling over a would-be tackler and still ran the ball 52 yards for the touchdown that would seal the deal and send the Redskins to the Super Bowl (which was also historic, when Doug Williams had the best second quarter in SB history).
Yep, him too. In my youth I loved the Raiders. Now I don't care very much.
Freddie down the sideline was a lot of fun, too. And I was surprised to find out, reading the Wikipedia biography on Jim Plunkett, that the man is not in the Football Hall of Fame. I remember being appalled when the Raiders picked him up (thinking of his record with the then-piteous Patriots), and that turning to ecstasy in Two Super Bowls.
Harris sat down at my bar in Atlanta in 1990-something when Super Bowl XXWTFBBC was in town. He was immediately recognizable, and even if I didn’t know he was Franco Harris, it was obvious he was a former pro athlete. He was fit as hell and took up nearly three spaces at the bar.
Not the greatest play by a long shot but possibly Saban’s biggest mistake in a game.
Alabama's most bitter loss = greatest play of all time.
It isn’t even there most bitter loss. Remember last year when Clemson handed them their b——? That would be their most bitter loss.
It also gets credit for the biggest blown call that cost a team the game as he didn't actually catch that ball...it bounced. I remember it well....it bounced. It was always telling that Harris always claimed that he doesn't remember the play and couldn't say if it bounced or not....he knew it bounced and he became a legend for it.
Don't get me wrong, things like that are just part of the game and sometimes the breaks go your way. As my couch always said, "You make your own luck" and Harris put himself in the position to be the hero...making his own luck, but the ball really did bounce.
You have a talking couch???
Well, he sure can't dance, so he has to do something
