Default the immaculate reception vs. sb XL

30+ years later, john madden and raider fans have not gotten over the "blown call" that led to francos td. it is said the refs gave the steelers that game. yet that play and that game has gone down in football lore and is one of the defining moments of the pittsburgh steelers.

and here we are some 30+ years later after winning a league leading 5th trophy, with fans crying foul. but this dont matter because 30 years from now this will be remembered as the one where the steelers tied the cowboys and 49ers for most sb victories. it will be remembered for the youngest qb to win the superbowlbowl and the undrafted free agent who ran for the longest td in sb history, eclipsing a mark set by the great marcus allen. people will remember the converted wr from college qb who became the 1st wr to throw a td in a sb. this will be the game where the hometown hero rode off into the sunset in story book fashion. and it will always be known as the "one for the thumb", a ring the steelers were destined to win. regardless of anything else.

You need a pic of the ball hitting the ground. Not where someone drew where it may have bounced or something.

Sorry dude, that is not conclusive proof... and this is from a Raider fan that watched that play go down. There is only one guy that knows the truth, Frenchy Fuqua... and he aint talking. As was said... it's been 34 years since that game... time to move on.

Look at it like I do... the two greatest teams in the NFL are part of football lore forever, because of that play. Yeah, they broke our hearts that year... but we did the same to them in '76. Tit for tat... these two teams will always be the bad asses of the NFL.


I hope to get back to our winning ways soon... then we can resume our long tradition of excellent games between our teams.

rock, thanks for helping illustrate my point. this most recent seattle loss will stick with their fans for as long as the immaculate reception has stuck with alot of raider fans. this is normal and there is nothing us steelerfans can do to take the sting out of it or convince people otherwise. and as much as i will enjoy the immaculate reception and what it meant to the steelers organisation, i will enjoy this 5th sb win even more.
