They were Bus drivers. Only in HOF cause on SB teams. 👎

Garrett is the basketball coach leading the game with 29 seconds left in the game. He runs a play to score again instead of running the clock out. The opposing team gets the rebound and drives the court to win.
This is Garrett, but the excuse would be "well if he had scored we would have won."  smh.

Just shows how slinging the ball all over the place isn't needed with a HOF RB lined up behind you.

I might say this: we’ve always been a running team and I’m sure we will continue to be so. (We’ve been criticized for it, I might add.) But I’ve always felt that three things can happen to you whenever you throw the football, and two of them are bad. You can catch the ball, you can throw it incomplete, or have it intercepted.

       Yep a balanced attack helps win SBs and get you to the HOF.

Another thing they had in common ... they didn't care one bit about stats. Winning was their goal.

I'm sure winning is the main goal for a lot of players, even with these new generation diva's coming out

So what?  In Rogers day,  a DB could legally mug and assault a wr.  You can't compare stats from different eras.  Roger was the best in his day.   Troy was among the best in his day.

How about a good tightend and a good wide reciever to go with a nice running game. Jay Novacek and Micheal Irvin in the 90's. Billy Joe Dupree and Drew Pearson in SuperBowl XII. Mike Ditka and Bob Hayes in SuperBowl VI. 》》》So now we have Zeke, Witten, and Bryant to go with Dak. Hmm. I wonder?

In Roger's (does it need that apostrophe, not entirely sure) day a loaf of bread cost 4 pence.

In Troy's day it was 32p.

Today £1.20

Times change.

These numbers would have comparative meaning, if they were adjusted to reflect the proliferation of passing in the NFL, the raw numbers say nowt.

Why would the name Roger be exempt from needing an apostrophe to make it a possessive tense?
