Neil O'Donnell




Much maligned by some Steelers fans for throwing two costly picks in Super Bowl XXX, but I think he's gotten a bad rap.  In fact the interception rate for his entire career was among the lowest in NFL history at 2.12 per 100 passes.

It was unfortunate he had his worst game at the worst time, but still this guy led the Steelers back to respectability along with Bill Cowher after some lean times in the late 80's.
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

DF, I came <this close> to making the theme TOM BRADY, in honor of his phenomenal career and his amazing performance Sunday, but I thought that was a little too restricting, so I opened it up to all Super Bowl quarterbacks.

-I agree, Rock & it turned out well!

-It's a great photo gallery of the old greats. :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
.....Football is over and I would vote for Da Fan in Japan.

Hello my friend LONG time no chat.......I hope all is well with you.

-Thanks Larry!

-Indeed, my good man it's been too long!  All's good on my end & I hope the same's true for you.

-I also hope we might some day actually run into each other here.

The Baltimore Colts were 18 point favorites in Super Bowl III. Undaunted, Jets quarterback Joe Namath made an appearance three days before the Super Bowl
at the Miami Touchdown Club and brashly guaranteed a victory.
His team backed up his words by controlling most of the game, and built a 16–0 lead through the fourth quarter off of a touchdown run by Matt Snell and three field goals by Jim Turner.
Colts quarterback Earl Morrall threw three interceptions before being replaced by Johnny Unitas, who then led Baltimore to its only touchdown during the last few minutes of the game.

Johnny Unitas was asked if he'd started the 2nd half, could he have led the Colts to victory? Unitas responded," I wouldn't have needed that much time."
I have always suspected this game was fixed. Think about Namaths involvement in organized gambling with later came to light.
Then theres the wide open primary receiver Jimmy Orr in the end zone, waving his arms at a oblivious Earl Morrell...etc...

Super Bowl XXII
Redskins 42, Broncos 10
Jack Murphy Stadium
San Diego
Los Angeles
Sunday, Jan. 31, 1988

Doug Williams doesn't reminisce very often, but every now and again his thoughts return to Super Bowl XXII, when the Redskins quarterback reached for perfection--and found it in one glorious quarter.

"We scored 35 points in 18 plays--that's execution at its very best," Williams said, still marveling years later at the second-quarter dominance in the Redskins' 42-10 Super Bowl triumph over the Denver Broncos. "Offensively, we were in a zone. It didn't matter who we were playing, they weren't going to stop us."

It didn't start out that way, though. On Denver 's first play from scrimmage, Broncos quarterback John Elway connected with wide receiver Ricky Nattiel on a 56-yard touchdown pass. Later, Rich Karlis added a 24-yard field goal and just like that, the Broncos led 10-0.

Late in the first quarter, Williams suffered a "hyper-flexed" left knee while setting up in the pocket. He limped off the field and backup Jay Schroeder came in for two uneventful plays.

Williams took back the reins at the start of the second quarter--and the fireworks began. On play action, he threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Sanders, who caught the ball around midfield and outraced cornerback Mark Haynes into the end zone. Four minutes later, Williams connected with Gary Clark on 27-yard scoring strike.

On the Redskins' next possession, rookie running back Timmy Smith broke free down the right sideline a 58-yard touchdown run. A few minutes later, Williams found Sanders again, this time on a 50-yard bomb. He closed the quarter with an 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end Clint Didier.

It was a breathtaking display. Overall, Williams completed 18-of-29 passes for 340 yards and those four second-quarter touchdowns. Smith closed out the scoring with a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter, but Williams--the first African-American quarterback to start a Super Bowl--was the obvious choice for most valuable player.

The rest of the offense seemed to feed off of Williams' remarkable precision, as the unit compiled 602 total yards to go along with the six touchdowns. Smith stunned everybody by rushing for a Super Bowl record 204 yards on 22 carries. Sanders finished the game with nine catches for 193 yards.

Defensively, the Redskins pressured Elway repeatedly, with safety Alvin Walton leading the way with two of the team's five sacks. Barry Wilburn had two of the Redskins' three interceptions; Brian Davis had the other.

But the spotlight was brightest on Williams.

Said head coach Joe Gibbs: "Doug wound up being the right man in the right place. You have a guy who played great when he first came out of college, went to the USFL, turned around and became a backup, then comes all the way back and is MVP in the Super Bowl. That's one of the great stories in sports history."

I guess that Russell Wilson doesn't count because he is just mostly African American?

Us white people are just confused, and with good cause. We've never encountered an African American that says "asked" instead of "axed".
