in the freezing weather at TRS. Bradshaw has already thrown 2 terrible picks in the 1st QTR. He would have been roasted on the boards right about now.

After Terry's 2nd INT deep in Pitt territory, defense held the Raiders and George Blanda missed a short field goal for the Raiders

Franco has nowhere to run. Oakland's D'line is spending practically the entire game so far in our backfield.

Sounds a lot like our season this year...doesn't it.

Hopefully, the end result of their season will be the same result of our season this year.

Everyone forgets that Bradshaw throws alot of ints. They only look at his wins.

These were two terrible picks as well. I realize that this was 33 years ago and the game has changed...but some circumstances or scenerios repeat themselves. It's time that makes us forget that the greats made mistakes too.

Through about 3 minutes into the 2nd QTR, we only have 9 yards rushing.

The commercials bring back a lot of memories :>)

I thought that's all that counts:coffee: 212TD's and 210 INT's for his career

I still remember the 3 picks he threw against the Rams in SB XIV - and still got MVP for the game. However, the bombs he threw to Stallworth and Swann were beautiful works of art. Those were the days....

Hey Gary, have you ever seen a prettier deep ball than the ones Brad threw? I haven't. I think it may have been that bomb to Stallworth in XIV that I still get goosebumps watchin.

They should bench Bradshaw and put in Leftwich.

Than Bradshaw's? Marino's....maybe. It's close.

As far as the bomb to Stallworth, this one?

If that's the one, I agree.

I was one happy 12-year-old when that play went down - we were behind 19-17 in the 4th at that point and I was getting nervous. Memories....

I think Brad had a big TD pass every 4th quarter of every SB he played in, didn't he?

Isn't this an AFCC game where Al Davis was bitching that we cheated by icing the field?

Yes. In the Steelers "America's Game" there is a lot of commentary on it. Dwight White was pretty vocal about the Raiders using this as an excuse.

Can never go wrong watching Al Davis and the Raiders losing. Also, Goodell would be all stressed out having to levy fines against the NFL players back in the 1970's with their physical play. Oh the good old days of NFL football.
