    It was the first day of the season, I think against the Brownsj, the Jets lost on Monday Night football, Riggins had missed camp cause he held out for more money, came with a Mohekian to camp, played the game but fumbled I think, the Jets lost and I cried that night.

  1. it's a good question. Everyone considers DRob an unbelievable bust. But didn't he play for us a couple of good years. That's a big difference between him and Gholston
  2. The game meant nothing, but somehow I remember the thrill. Joe Willy chucks a last second bomb, and a miraculous catch and run by little Eddie Bell, and they win the game. Shea games weren't televised, so we heard Marty Glickman on the radio ("out of the huddle come the Jets, Namath barks the signals...) And then, you have to wait later that night, on Sports Extra with Bill Mazer, to see the highlight, and that's the only time you'll see it, but you are a little nauseous by then, because you have school tomorrow..
  3. Best thing about this video, was I saw Quinnen Williams, our guy, as the top pick on that list of defensive linemen on the graphic they displayed.
  4. wow, that was fun watching... love how they all the ball to the ref and no showboating, and wow, I miss Riggins. to this day, when I need to remember the number 83 I remember Barkum, and for 88, Caster...
  5. I liked Pennington as a leader and felt good when he was under center. I never liked Martin's running style. He got so many touches, it was obviously he would get tons of yards. But he was a slasher, not a breakaway guy... don't think he was better than Freeman McNeil, or Riggins, or Boozer. He was ho hum for me. Lamont Jordan averaged 6 yards a carry with us, so we had a good line. I know he was a class guy and all, but I like Barry Sanders types...
  6. I finally realize who fits this description. Not DeRob. It's Mike Tyson ( as I watch his comeback attempt )
  7. Bad signing. He disappears for months at a time. (remember last year we thought he was dead?)
  8. reading that Buffalo thread, they started to convince me that we might not be that good....
  9. Lebron may be comparable to Jordan, but I definitely like Jordan a ton more. He is poetry in motion, Lebron is like a truck who drives down the lane, knocking every one over, travels like crazy, bullies everyone and cries about fouls.... much more fun to witness Jordan's game. And I couldn't give a damn if he didn't back that candidate over Jesse Helms. Good for him. These documentary makers (and rest of the media) make it think that if you aren't socially active, you are somehow a worse human being. And being socially conscious, means taking their leftist progressive views. What if you are socially active, but on the right side of the spectrum? They'd trash you. Good for Jordan for not getting involved. And anyone who really knows politics, Jesse Helms wasn't a racist or an anti-Semite. It is easy to be superficial and label him, but if you really listened to him (the guy was in Congress for like 40 years), he was nothing of the kind.
  10. didn't get something - the documentary shows that Jordan was getting beat up by Detroit bullies, and Bulls kept losing to them in playoffs. So they went and got Rodman to be an enforcer for them, to overcome the Pistons... but after that, the documentary shows, that when they finally beat the Pistons and get tough, Rodman is still on Detroit? (and beating on Pippin).... what am I missing here?
  11. Montgomery has 88... that was a funny number for a r.b. anyway.
  12. saw first three parts of documentary. It's pretty confusing as they go back and forth in time. I understand the concept, but I"m losing them... Pippin is holding out, then they go back in time, I forgot already about Pippin holding out, and when is the Last Dance coming? I am an NBA fan, and am still getting confused with the sequence. I think they are being too cute with the back and forth in time.... and if someone isn't an NBA fan that knows that era, I don't see how he could follow.
  13. Foreman was a super gentleman, that's why he said he's afraid of Tyson. That's the way he is. In that same interview (when he was with Frazier and Ali together), he didn't mention at all how he destroyed Frazier, he actually said that Frazier hurt him.... The point is, George is just very gracious. For instance, Ali during that interview was already gone mentally, and George Foreman was trying to get involved him in the discussion. But if we're talking about Foreman and comebacks, Foreman used a lot of strategy in his comeback. He changed his boxing style by crossing his arms to defend, and stuff like that. And then in another fight, he would change the style - he used his brain and just didn't rely on brute strength like he used to. Don't know if Tyson can do that.
  14. what about a thread - funniest post ever on this forum.... or favorite post on the forum.. (I don't want to start it)
