    The genius behind one of the most intricate and complicated offenses the NFL will ever see.
    The days and nights that man must have stayed awake designing the offensive plays for the 1970s steelers.
    All three plays were masterpieces
    hand off to Franco right side
    hand off to Franco left side
    have Bradshaw chuck the ball 40 yards down the feild and have swan or stallworth get underneath it.

    Rest in piece you offensive genius.

    Meh.

    Pittsburgh Steelers :umm:

    [h=3]January 15, 1995[/h] [h=4]AFC Championship: San Diego Chargers vs Pittsburgh Steelers[/h]
    Early in the final period, Humphries completed consecutive passes to Pupunu for 31 yards, moving the ball across midfield. Then with 5:13 left in the game, Humphries threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tony Martin, who out-jumped defensive back Tim McKyer to make the catch and give the Chargers a 17–13 lead. O'Donnell then completed seven consecutive passes, the longest a 21-yard gain to Green that gave them a first and goal at the Chargers 9-yard line and put them in position for a potential winning touchdown. However, Foster was dropped for a one-yard loss on the next play, followed by an incompletion and a 7-yard catch by Williams. On fourth down, Chargers linebacker Dennis Gibson sealed the victory by tipping away O'Donnell's pass intended for Foster. The Steelers lost for the first time during the season in which they held a lead at halftime. (In 1994, they were 9–0 when leading at halftime prior to this game.)

    Yes, that certainly is topical given the fact that chuck Noll had nothing to do with that game and the chargers certainly did go onto glory after that game

    It's usually customary to check and see if others have started threads on breaking news stories, prior to starting another one.

    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

    I'm very sorry. Your copy and paste thread was much better than my originally written thread. Never happen again :hat:

    It's all in the timing, TTMT.

    BTW, Chuck searched through all of the scholar-athletes, top of their class, academic award winners, Mensa members, Dean's list, QBs. Then he drafted Bradshaw.

    We used to make fun of Franco Harris because he always ran out of bounds. A real man would try for a few more yards! The real men are dead now and Franco walks without a limp.
