    whether you agree or not, this is a fabulous production, with video footage of each of the plays and a few minutes of interview with dramatis personae

    Garo Yepremian's ill-fated pass HAS to be in there somewhere... right?

    Marvelous! The #1 play will either bring shouts of joy ... or deep anguish. I wonder how it would have been called if subjected to challenge and multiple angle replays.

    I will be watching that. One of the best for me:

    Thanks for the Rabbit Hole!!

    What great memories. Oh, man, having watched so many of these as they happened...I wish I could relive the late 70's early-to-mid 80's.

    Oddly, I hate one of these deeply. The Fridge scoring a td in the Super Bowl, and NOT SWEETNESS!!! is one of my least favorite memories ever. Grrr!! Ditka was wrong.

    What I love is that because so many of these were playoff games, we ALL have seen these together.

    Also, I would give so, so much to have a time machine to go back to 1946-1977 football (same with 1915-1941 baseball).

    Didn't realize Concrete Charlie was such a handsome stud?!

    The Hook and Lateral!!! Still my favorite game of all-time. Became a life long Fouts/Air Coryell fan that day (despite already claiming the Raiders as my own). Geez...Winslow, Joiner, Brooks, Berneschke!! I thank God I got to see that game in real time. What's weird is that it's been nearly 37 years since I've seen that game, and I still remember it more than what I watched this weekend. Granted replays have something to do with it, but even the stuff that doesn't typically make the highlight reels.

    NO!! The "Tuck Rule" kick. No!!!

    I see 17 Bob Trey O has fallen over the years. The Autumn Wind is a Raider! "Slow" Marcus Allen to the House, his longest run from scrimmage in 16 years...saved for the Super Bowl. Look up #32's playoff stats - he's the Reggie Jackson of football. Saved his best for the postseason.

    #2 killed the NFL for me. After that, I no longer cared about the league.

    Really!?! I was 7 and was one year into my NFL fandom and that play helped seal the love affair. I came away hating both teams, but that's another story.

    The only one I saw in person was #17 (Sea Of Hands), and that one has a track connection. The AAU Junior XC Champs were held down by SF Bay that morning (won by Rich Kimball) and the Oakland Coliseum was just 2-3 miles away and I did a nifty double.

    Perhaps because it was not a playoff game, my earliest NFL shocking play memory (3 weeks before the Ice Bowl) was not included.
