Isaiah Thomas throwing the inbounds pass to Larry Bird. 1987(?) conference finals.
It was 87....that would be mine, I remember watching that game and thinking, did this really happen!!
Heck lions never make the playoffs but here is one for them
92 I belive Sterling sharpe wide, and I mean WIDE open for a game winning TD
Wings in the 90's losing to the 8th seeded sharks, seeing a very young Chris osgood, get a bit tiery eyed
I remember that season. I remember I thought the Broncos were overrated because they had beat some pretty mediocre teams that year. As you said though, in the end they won 2 Super Bowls and they did it against teams I hated, so good for them. My impression of Elway after that changed drastically.January 5th, 1997. Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Denver Broncos.
Denver came in HEAVILY favored. Having a 13 - 3 record, making them the best team of record for that year just added to the hype.
Mark Brunell made like John Elway and Natrone Means did a superb imitation of, well, himself. Means rushed for 140 yards and a touchdown as well as Brunell passing for 2 TDs of his own.
Looking back, the only that helps is knowing that Denver came back the following 2 years to go the Superbowl.
Definitely Wide Right and No Goal. Lost a Superbowl and the Stanley Cup finals over them.
The 2006 loss to Carolina was particularly bad as well, as that was our year. Had we had even 3 healthy defensemen instead of 1, we would have made the finals and the cup would have been ours. But, we always seem to get particularly unlucky.
The "Music City Miracle" also would be one as well.
