  1. Worst SB ever?

    Worst SB? How about 1978, Dallas vs Denver in the Louisiana Dome. Roger Staubach vs Craig Morton, former backup in Dallas. Morton was pulled in the second half after being ineffective. The game was never in doubt. The only SB until the '90's not seen. We were in the Carribean and listened on Armed Forces radio.
  2. Greatest non SB winning Team of all time.

    Defense built by Jim Finks, coached by Buddy Ryan...
  3. Why will we never see another Patriots dynasty again? Salary cap?

    This. Kraft has hired 3 coaches, Parcells, Carroll and Belichick. All have SB rings.
  4. Greatest non SB winning Team of all time.

    1984-88 Bears should have won 2 or 3 SBs. McMahon was hit twice, '84 and '86 as a warning for coaching excess.

    Eagles at Vikings as the late game is outstanding.
  8. Why will we never see another Patriots dynasty again? Salary cap?

    He is already the best ever. Really? In the AFC title game he looked very talented and a bit immature.
  9. Is Philip Rivers a HoF QB?

    Phillip Rivers will gain the hof, may or may not be 1st ballot. Long solid career.
  10. What movie are you watching?

    Brexit starring Benedict Cumberbach. Understand UK and US politics.

  12. The NFL kicking game has always had a rough sell. John Madden added to the folklore as a broadcaster. All kickers were position players until the 1960s. Paul Hornung and Jerry Kramer were the kickers in GB. Both had issues with length and accuracy. Lombardi brought in Don Chandler from the NYG. The 1965 division game in Lambeau against the Colts was 10-10 into OT. Decided by a Chandler FG. The refs were in the field and not on the goal line. Uprights were at a lower level. The kick was ruled good. Chandler knew it was high and wide. Colts owner spent $$ to find photo proof. Rozelle ordered uprights taller, banners attached, refs on goal line and back to front. Packers played the Blanton Collier Browns and won.
  13. What well by post Brady/Belichick era look like?

    Dynasties take two forms. Post Lombardi in GB a quick fall that lasted decades. Post Paul Brown in Cleveland his long time assistant Blanton Collier took over and put the Browns into successive title games. Shula in Miami went from strength to strength, changing QBs and retooling from run to pass. Post Landry in Dallas they quickly changed owners and Jimmy Johnson took over. Noll in Pittsburgh gave way to other coaches and styles but continued to win. Post Walsh in SF his long time assistant took them to another SB with Steve Young. Any sign that Belichick intends to stay?

  15. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Boatload of picks, draft smart. Dallas new ownership had a double problem. They had just fired one of the legends of football, Tom Landry. And they were bereft of talent. They did have Herschel Walker. Dallas Cowboys under Jimmy Johnson spotted a little detail in the collective bargaining agreement. They made a list. The Vikings nibbled.
