For me personally, it was:
- Dyson since that's the closest that the Oilers ever came to winning a SB.
- Either the first or last Rodney Harrison INT from last year's SB which ended the Eagles best chance for a SB win in probably my lifetime. ;-)
- And finally, a good memory, kinda... when Garo Yepremiam tried passing the ball after a muffed field goal attempt and threw an interception for a TD... which thankfully, resulted in the only TD for the opposition Washington and sucessfully allowing merc's Miami Dolphins to complete the only perfect season ever in the NFL. :-D

Dan Bunz...SB XVI (and I believe it was Hacksaw that had his hands in the air after the 4th down stop)

What I will remember is that immediately after I told my buddies that the Steelers were due for a reverse or a flea flicker because they do it every game, they reversed Hines Ward for 18 yards and a key first down.

Later on the HB pass that Randel El threw was a beautiful backyard play. That's what football is all about and why its fun to watch.

To sum it up I think the Steelers had uncanny timing for calling their "gadget" plays. This more than anything else was the winning factor in the SuperBowl. Cowher and his coaching staff deserve a lot of credit.

*Edit - I guess this thread is about all time.... oh well. this is what I'll remember from this year's

RB Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte, Lesean McCoy
WR Brandon Marshall, Kenny Britt

I have to go back to the 4th quarter of Super Bowl XVII. Down 17-13 and facing a fourth-and-one on the Miami 43, Joe Theismann (yes, you young guys, he was once a player) handed off to John Riggins, who proceeded to take the handoff, break a tackle, and rumble all the way for a touchdown to give Washington its first lead of the game. The Redskins went on to win 27-17.

Of course, other images that come to mind are from Super Bowl XVIII: Jeff Bostic sailing a snap over the head of 'Skins punter Jeff Hayes, Jack Squirek's INT for a TD to end the first half (the last screen pass Gibbs called during his first stint in DC), and of course, Marcus Allen's 74-yard cut back run that dashed a young boy's dreams of back-to-back titles for his hometown team.

But as you can tell, I'm over it. :~(

What superbowl moment is flashed in your mind when you think about the superbowl? Seeing as how I'm only 30, I don't remember the Steeler SBs of the 70s, so suprisingly, it's not a steeler moment for me.

The picture that comes to mind when I think about the SB is Kevin Dyson stretching out at the one yard line in SB XXXIV. That was a heartripping moment...that close to tying the game and forcing an overtime. I'm not a Titans fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I was routing for them against the Rams (keeping it in the AFC).


Just had to post that picture, eh?

Good God, I think I might cry. :~(


I'm gonna go cry. lol

Norwood's kick literally won or lost the game for the Bill's. That's by far the most exciting Super Bowl moment I've ever seen.

How can you say that Dyson's wasn't to win the game? That was the last play, as was Norwood's...please explain your logic here.

That TD would have only tied the game... unless they went for 2.

Still ended the game, as did Norwood's.

The difference is that Norwoods kick ended the game either way. Norwood makes the kick, Buffalo wins Super Bowl 25. Norwood misses the kick and the Giants win Super Bowl 25. That one play ended the game and also decided the winner and loser of the game.

The Dyson play only ended the game because he didn't score. If he scored the game wouldn't have been over. The game would have went into OT unless Tennessee decided to go for 2. If they did decide to go for 2 then that play would have been just like the Norwood play in that the 2 point conversion would have decided the game.

That's the difference. Norwoods play decided the winner and the loser. Dysons play decided the winner, but if he scored noone knows what would have happened after that. If he scored, there was more football to play. Norwoods kick was the very last possible play of the game with no chance of OT.

PS: I'm not saying that the Dyson play wasn't memorable. It would be top 3 in my list. It's just that the Norwood play was to win the game. The Dyson play was to force OT.

I'll remember the Dyson play forever, but for sheer audacity I'm going to go with the Randel El to Hines Ward trick play!

One for all time. ;-D
