Ok - this is forcing me to raise my expectations for Nate - I now predict 32 catches for Nate in 2006.

'74 AFCCG was definately the most important in my opinion....Some people say that the Immaculate Reception in '72 was. It was the draft of 1974 that was the final piece of the puzzle for the Steelers Dynasty. Lambert was the centerpiece.

What a game it was. I remember sitting directly in front of the TV only to be yelled at by mom to back up or else I was going to go blind from sitting too close to the TV. And I agree, it probably was the most important game in Steeler history.

That was an awesome team and an awesome dynasty. It's hard to believe it took 20+ years to win another SB. I can only hope that today's team can shine like the Steel Curtain teams of the 70s.

Will we remember names like Ham, Greene, Greenwood, Blount, Harris, Bleier, and Bradshaw 20 years from now and be able to compare Hope, Ward, Polamalu, Bettis and Rothlisberger to these greats? I hope so.

That is not really true. It was Al Davis.

Terry talked to Al Davis about trying to arrange a trade for him because he was so miserable in Pittsburgh. Al convinced him to stay and prove all the nay sayers wrong. At that time, we had Ken Stabler and really didn't have a place for him in Oakland. The rest, as they say, is history.

Al says it is one the dumbest things he has ever done!

Even though I am a die hard Raiders fan, I love Terry Bradshaw. The guy was just an amazing football player. It's hard to believe that he had such a hard time in his early years with the Steelers.

I would take Bradshaw over any QB that has played to date... even Montana.

Lol, I'm sure you do!

If recall correctly, the question wasn't if Franco caught the ball or not... it was if the ball hit Frenchy Fuqua or not.

Either way, it's football lore now. Can't change a thing, so, might as well enjoy the fact that the Raiders are in the history books as being a part of one the greatest plays in the history of the game!

Sorry clevestinks, the plays don't even come as close in importance. The Immaculate Reception was the Start of the dynasty. The Tackle, saved a game.
