hines ward would never run the wrong route, and we always play in superbowls (3 of the past 6- but dont say that around here... it is seen as a negative by some).
I remember all too well. Corey Holiday was his name. Rookie out of UNC, hard to blame him entirely, Gailey called the play b/c Earhardt was basically fired at halftime, and Neil chose the timing pattern to the guy who hadn't caught a pass since preseason. Such is life. How different things might have been had any one of those things not happened.
That was a superb group of WRs though. Thigpen, Johnson, Mills, and Hastings with young Kordell in the mix as well. Great season, great memories.
