thats right! im trying to remember the lb(?) on foster who swatted away that final pass. i cant remember who was on pupunu, but im pretty sure it was mckyer who blew the sideline coverage on that long pass from humphrees late in the game. i still got that tape somewhere in the garage... havent watched it in over 10 years.

Some older ones:

Pitt going up 14-0 on Penn State and then losing 48-14.

Sherrill not having a backup QB ready in the '77 season, when Cavanaugh went down and we lost to a Notre Dame team we could have beaten. That probably cost the Panthers a second consecutive national championship season.

Watching Booth Lusteg (late '60s kicker for the Steelers) practicing field goals by kicking paper cups on the sidelines, and then converting 25% of his kicks.

Matty Alou dropping the "can of corn" in 1970 (the Bucs clinched the next day, though).

Bob Moose's wild pitch in the 9th inning of game 5 of the 1972 NLCS (Clemente's last game) that sent the Reds to the series.

The drug scandal Pirates team of the early '80s: Dale Berra, Rod Scurry, Jason Thompson, Lee Lacy, Dave Parker, et al. Those guys were talented enough to have a dynasty, and blew it all up their noses. That probably cost Parker the HOF.


There, there's some Pittsburgh sports history crow to chew on!

wow. those early 80's pirate's are what i grew up loving (at the time i thought madlock and parker were the greatest until i learned of reggie jackson). i heard about dale berra but didnt know it was that bad. i still have my stack of baseball cards i took to the park, with autographs of berra and thompson, to go along with those of teckulve, hebner, pena, madlock, candelaria, rhoden and even tanner. i still got the crappy photo i took of berra on the scoreboard along with his stats when it was his turn to bat. (this is back when even kids could opperate an I-10 camera).

thats pretty funny about watching the steelers kicker practice on paper cups.... almost humiliating.

Ben throwing away an AFCG was one thing, since he was a rook and it was surprising that we got as far as we did, but O'Donnell was the worst. The guy only threw a few picks all year then disintegrates in the Super Bowl? Kordell's INT clinic against the Bronco's was almost as bad because he played well all that year, but, deep down, we all kind of secretly knew he was going to crumble sooner or later.
