"I Done Wet My Britches!"
people from Texas talk stupid.
We in Illinois talk gooder than you.

That game was crazy, I couldnt help but laugh hysterically though!

Ya, the commentary was the best part.

"Did he get a touchdown? Yes sir!"

Good Gosh a Mighty!

"Aw no! NO! NOOOOO!"


Looks like two coaches that need to work on tackling drills, IMO.

Sorry but a "Greatest Football Game Evar!" cannot have a Texas team, it is impossible and would cause a rift in time and space.

12-11-2006, 11:52 AM
By similar logic, such a game cannot involve any teams from the Pacific Northwest.

So what WAS the greatest game ever?

12-11-2006, 12:01 PM
Superbowl XXXVIII New England 32 - Carolina 29

At least it has been proclaimed by more than one source as the greatest Superbowl ever.....

ESPN Classic proclaims the 1958 Colts - Giants game as the greatest ever.

I'd say the Rams-Titans Super Bowl was better...games ending on a field goal are kind of...anti-climatic? There's a lot of "omgomgomgomgomg" to it if it's your team, but watching the Titans try to drive down the field and come up one...yard...short...

That's a much better game IMO.

12-11-2006, 12:18 PM
There was no "Bewb Showage" or "wardrobe malfunction" in that superbowl. 38 wins by that fact alone.

12-11-2006, 12:19 PM
Silver is correct. That was a GREAT GAME! I was gonna post that until I saw you had done so already. Gold Star.

12-11-2006, 12:24 PM
If Banne and I agree on something, it must be true.

See also: Stoke is old.

Doing a little googling, I see a lot of votes for that game. But, believe it or not, there is a lot of folks out there referencing the 49ers - Bengals in 1989....

1st Pitt - Dal superbowl (X I think?) is getting votes.

Some yo-yo is saying the Raiders - Bucs from a few years ago....

All a matter of opinion I guess....

12-11-2006, 12:33 PM
However, it appears most people are leaning toward Superbowl III - Colts and the Jets.... the one where Joe Namath "guaranteed" the Jets would win.... and did 16-7....

12-11-2006, 12:42 PM
16-7 isn't that big of a deal...the Colts even today can't win the big one. :p

The Dallas-Pittsburgh game is eliminated from contention as Gryph already established the greatest game evar cannot involve a team from Texas. Dallas is in Texas, ergo...

The Bengals-Niners....hmmm...that's a good one too since they actually did make it. Still, I don't know that the backstory there compares to a guy who was stocking groceries a year previous winning the Super Bowl (especially a team as historically "meh" as the Rams).

1969 was a little before my time (I think it was '69 at least, I could be mistaken though!)
It is all a matter of opinion. I mean, the '85 Bears was actually the first super bowl I was alive for, I was ohh, 5ish months old about at the time, so thats a special one for me. Regardless, I was still in my Payton Jersey!!!!!!

Silver we agree on alot. Dane Sucks, Stoke is Old, Texas sucks, gryphen is hawt, etc,etc,etc,etc.

16-7 isn't that big of a deal....

Can't go by score alone....

Jets quarterback Joe Namath "guaranteed" victory on the Thursday before the game, then went out and led the AFL to its first Super Bowl victory over a Baltimore team that had lost only once in 16 games all season.

This was still back in the days when it was the much superior NFL vs the upstart AFL. The Colts had pretty much dominated the NFL and the Jets were not given much of a chance to win. This game was one of the biggest upsets in pro football history.

Can't go by score alone....

But I can go by the fact that it's a two score victory. :)

This was still back in the days when it was the much superior NFL vs the upstart AFL. The Colts had pretty much dominated the NFL and the Jets were not given much of a chance to win. This game was one of the biggest upsets in pro football history.

And look at the Colts today, weren't they like...14-2 last year? Fell short of the Super Bowl (which with the change in playoff structure, the AFC Championship would BE the Super Bowl back then). The fact that it's regarded as an major upset simply shows that oddsmakers, even back then, didn't really grasp the "Any Given Sunday" concept. Unlike college, the talent gap in pro football is not that big, especially when you start looking at the playoff teams. Look at the Chargers, the Ravens and the Colts. Can you predict who would win? Same thing with the Bears, the Seachickens, the Aints and the TBA NFC East team. While things have changed a bit over the years, that one hasn't. Any given Sunday...

2005 Rose Bowl.

12-12-2006, 09:52 AM
Who won that game again? Ohh yeah, USC lost it, no one won it. HA! By the way, I hated Vinny Young until this year, but now, he has really really impressed me. Way to go VYOUNG

12-12-2006, 11:04 AM
Also, Gryphon's law that the "Greatest Game" cannot involve a team from Texas still applies.

12-13-2006, 11:30 AM
Since the greatest game of all time does involve a Texas team, Gryphons rule is null and void. If such a rule was in effect, then the universe would cease to exist due to the contradictions of two truths.

12-13-2006, 11:35 AM
Hmmmm... outvoted here you are. Your hole crawl back into. Yes. Hmmmm?

12-13-2006, 11:36 AM
No, it simply proves that the 2005 Rose Bowl was not the greatest game ever. In these matters, I trust the general cosmic wisdom of Gryphon over the provincial opinions of someone from the bottom of the US. :)

12-14-2006, 12:24 AM
I could say so many assholish in response to your post Silver....but I dont need to since we all know Texas>>>USA. Dont make me post that there beer commercial again!

12-14-2006, 06:40 PM
That looked like sloppy football to me. They didn't have anyone that could catch on their hands team.
