"There's John Candy"

Super Bowl XXIII: Trailing 16-13 with the ball on San Francisco's own 8-yard line and only 3:10 left in the game, Joe Montana leans into the 49ers huddle and points to the back of the end zone: "There's John Candy." A few minutes later: 49ers 20, Bengals 16.

That is why he is the best ever...

What were they thinking?

Super Bowl XVIII: Trailing 14-3 with 12 seconds left before halftime and deep in their own territory, the Redskins try to throw a swing pass to Joe Washington. But Raiders' LB Jack Squirek intercepts Joe Theismann's pass for an easy TD.

this is why I hate the friggin Raiders...

Marcus Allen's dazzling run

Super Bowl XVIII: With the Raiders ahead of the Redskins 28-9, L.A. QB Jim Plunkett takes the snap on his own 26. He pitches to Marcus Allen, who looks like he'll run straight into a wall of Redskins defenders on the outside. But he cuts in, and goes 74 yards for a touchdown that ends the third quarter -- and, really, the game. Allen would run for 191 yards on the day, and and be named MVP as the Raiders romp, 38-9.

Friggin Raiders...

Gassing up the Diesel

Super Bowl XVII: Facing fourth-and-1 at the Miami 43 and trailing 17-13 with 10:10 remaining in the game, Joe Gibbs decides to go for it. Out of the I formation, the give is to John Riggins on a play called '70 chip.' Washington had run that play often throughout the season, but it surprises the Dolphins defense, which is caught out of position. A great block by Hog Rick Walker opens the door for Riggins, who breaks a tackle by Don McNeal and goes all the way for the TD. The Redskins take the lead and win 27-17.

Montana to Taylor

Super Bowl XXIII: In their first Super Bowl in four years, the 49ers had scored just one touchdown and trail the Bengals 16-13 when they take possession at their own 8 with 3:10 left on the lock. With Joe Montana calling the plays, the Niners march down to the Cincinnati 10.

Now down to their final 39 seconds, the Niners run a pass play. Halfback Roger Craig, the primary receiver, is double-covered. But John Taylor, a wide receiver, breaks loose deep in the end zone. Montana fires to Taylor for the latest game-winning TD in Super Bowl history as the 49ers win, 20-16.

As I said before, he's the best, the ruler by which Brady is judged...

Pats v. Rams.

All the experts, John Madden included, said "Hey, Tom Brady, run out the clock. Take a knee. Don't make a mistake."

Translation: Be a loser like Pittsburgh & the Jets & Marty the Shott -don't try to win the game - just try not to lose it. Head to OT and hope you can win there.

Ming, Belichek, Tom and the gang welcome you all to the 21st Century of winning football in the NFL!

But you know what? Young Tom doesn't make a mistake. He deftly moves his team in a series of clutch plays, with unparalleled coolness, and exemplary clock management, to put Adam the V. in position for the game winning FG as time expires.

First time a game was won on the last play of a game.

Super pressure. Super Clutch. Super Bowl win for the underdog Pats.
