Re: Obscure trivia

Sam Rutigliano won UPI's AFC COY in 1979 & 1980. His Browns lost to the Raiders in the 1980 & 1982 AFC Playoffs. So it's Rutigliano and Allie Sherman (1961 & 1962 UPI NFL COY/0-3 in NFL Championship games).

Re: Goal Posts

This history of goal posts interested me quite a bit when I first started my blog and I learned a lot while researching. In writing it I found the patent for Joel Rottman's sling shot goal post which included padding. If anyone's interested, it's here: https://www.thegamebeforethemoney.com/goalpost...

Re: Teams that didn't play on MNF the entire season but "should" have

The 1977 Denver Broncos, who were coming off their best season ever (9-5). They went on to win the AFC and advanced to Super Bowl XII. ABC's snub of the Broncos further drew the ire of Denver fans whenever their club was excluded from Howard Cosell's halftime highlights segment: "Business is bo...

In 1981 Steve Watson recorded a 93 yard TD reception against the Chargers in Week 4 and a 95 yard TD reception against Detroit in Week 6. In Week 14 he tallied an 86 yarder versus Kansas City, a play that fell just 6 yards short of the endzone. At the time it was the longest non-scoring pass play in...
