the sneak peek gave me chicken skinn. it talks about john stallworth taking over after swans early exit because of injury, and the 2 long bombs he caught in the 4th quarter.

the 1st one was on 3rd and 8, and terry called a play that hadnt worked once all week in practice. as the perfect spiral was in the air stallworth was thinking "dammit terry, you overthrew me!" (of course it went for the go ahead td).

2nd one was the exact same play and stallworth says he was underthrown on that one or it woulda been a td! (of course it went for a 50 yd bomb)

i sure miss the days of "the bomb" as an actual playcall that you could see more than once every 2 games.

a far cry from all the modern day teams that immediately declare themselves "teams of destiny".

excellent story from cleveland naitive john banaszcak signing with the steelers and his brownfan dad hanging up on him upon hearing the news.

how can lc greenwood not be anyones favorite steeler after this??? or stallworth??? or etc.??? greenwood deserves to be in the hall of fame based off his comments on roger staubach alone.

Stallworth's catches sure are pretty, the guy was money. I enjoyed hearing the players little stories behind the games. LC had a couple good ones he was cracking himself up. Would love to pluck the 70's Swann and Stallworth and drop them on a field in 2007 and watch what happens.

I think some of the reasons we don't see the bomb like in the old days is QB's don't have the guts like Bradshaw did to throw the bomb and coaches are to scared of turning the ball over anymore. All this check down shit and trying to avoid mistakes is getting old. Trust me I don't want to see bombs all day but like you said Tony it would be nice to see it more often.

I hear people all the time knock Terry's career TD to INT ratio. I think it plus +2. But man Terry just thought he could make any throw and he had the guts to make those type of throws.
