Interesting fact about the 1994 AFCCG:
the Steelers & the Bolts were #1 & #2 in rushing (Barry "Bananas" Foster & Natrone "Bomb" Means)... yet, they each only had 60 yards rushing in that game (and an un-named Steelers QB threw for, what was then, an AFCCG passing yards record). It truly was a strange game.

Oh, and Eric Greene laying down on the 3 yard-line, and not rolling into the end-zone (let alone even attempting to get up) still kills me.
