Being fair, it's above Dan Dierdorf's normal level.

:D

Whilst I get what you mean (underneath all the "willywaving"), whilst it could be said for most of them, I wasn't necessarily suggesting dynasty teams.

The teams I have listed are just teams that I enjoy watching videos of. Not necessarily good teams. (I like the Browns because of their Cardiac nature, and the horrendous trench coats. Oh and Bill Cowher and Bernie K).

I can't watch Pats films. I hope they lose every game. I have about 7 of their games and every time I've wanted the other team to win.

Except I hope Hannah does well... Which he normally does...

And he cant do it. Or not from what I saw.

Probably why he has fallen so far down draft boards.

And I didn't actually read the book as it would have required me caring

I read a while ago that the NFL was thinking of expanding the America's Game series to teams which hadn't won Super Bowls. I thought it was a stupid idea that would never see the light of day, and yet on NFL Total Access yesterday the words "America's Game: Missing Rings - 81 Chargers" appeared.

Yep, I'm sure Kellen Winslow and Dan Fouts want to talk about freezing half to death and losing an anticlimatic AFC Championship game in Cincinnati.

Ha.

Best. Game. Ever.

The win in balmy Miami really took it out of them.

I wonder, is that the biggest swing in temperature between two consecutive games for one team. Surely it must be.

With windchill, the Bengals game was the coldest ever yeh?

I remember an interview, where Fouts said that one of his receivers (Chandler, or possibly Muncie) came in the dressing room from on the pitch and said "Guys. Everything that your wearing to keep warm... take it off. It aint gonna make a bit of difference!". Or something like that.

James... Can you PM me your address btw?

I got my merch through last night.

Needless to say, I'm currently repping Navy, Penn State and The U on my travels. I feel very odd!

Fair enough, but you often talk about wanting to broaden your knowledge of the game and I honestly think books like the Feinstein and Lewis ones would help.

Would have thought so.

-59 or something ridiculous like that, wasn't it? Bonkers.

Didn't the Vikings of the mid 70s develop some kind of condition from going from extreme cold to warmth (for Super Bowls)? I think I vaguely recall it being part of the reason they built the dome there.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-01-2009 11:05 AM

Nice to see Jerry Jones getting down to hard work this off-season.

Looking good, cap wise.

Unlike the Jets. :lux:

And until reading that article I didn't know that Dwight Smith was now with the Lions. From the ultimate high point (2 TDs in a Super Bowl win) to 0-16. Ouch.

Benzhiyi 26-01-2009 12:02 PM

I like this plan:

Jets cut Coles.
Coles' good friend Penny talks him into coming to Miami on (a bit) less cashola.
Coles heads up a WR core that also includes Ginn, Camarillo, Bess and a late draft pick.

Mmmm. Tasty.

Didn't help them win any though did it ...

Strathclyde Eagle 26-01-2009 01:42 PM

It wasn't a good condition! It was something to do with circulation or something I think (will need to look it up).

Oddly it didn't seem to affect the Packers (2-0) or Steelers (4-0) of the same era.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-01-2009 01:52 PM

Old article that says about Elliott's points about the 81 Chargers:
Quote:

Cincinnati beat San Diego in the AFC title game 22 years ago, and the details of that championship are frozen in the memory of former Bengal lineman Dave Lapham. Then again, that stands to reason.

Just about everything about Lapham was frozen that day.

The game, which would become known as the “Freezer Bowl,” was played in temperatures that dipped to minus-9 degrees with a wind-chill factor of minus-58, the lowest ever wind-chill for an NFL game.

...

“I remember playing the whole [Freezer Bowl] game and not breaking a sweat,” said Lapham, now a radio analyst who covers his former team. “My T-shirt was bone dry. We came out without any sleeves to try to psych the Chargers out. They had played in the heat and humidity of Miami the week before, so for them it was about a 150-degree swing.”

He looks like Hef's younger brother.

nookiebear 26-01-2009 03:56 PM

Was weird last night. No NFL on telly :(

elliott 26-01-2009 04:31 PM

Yeh. Fortunately TA was on though.

Dave Lapham is cool. Is he the guard who now does commentary? I like him if so, seems like a nice guy.

Strath - I think was Jazman was suggesting that in building the dome, it didn't help Minnesota win any games. Not that having a condition would help you win games!

jazman 26-01-2009 05:16 PM

What did confuse me in my research yesterday is the franchise thing. In that what teams used to be who and the like as I have been caught out before assuming the Baltimore Colts are now the Indy Colts ...

Yep, didn't put it well enough in hindsight. Was trying to think of teams that have never appeared in a Superbowl, probably too many to mention but the Lions immediately spring to mind. But the Cards are now off that list ...
