    So a quick question to all you fans out there who have been watching this game longer than 10 years. Watch Deion's RAC again what other run does it remind you of that involves these two teams? If you know the answer without googling you are a true fan of the bad times as well as the good. And for that I salute you!

    he dragged Myron Guyton into the endzone...wow I guess you guys don't remember those pre-Brady times
    Branch run after the catch on that first TD was eerily similar to BS' run

    Barry Sanders abusing one of our DB's. Not sure which one, either Ricky Reynolds or Maurice Hurst?

    Harlon Barnett was the guy who Sanders turned around on that play. It was much worse than the Branch run, as Barnett didn't even lay a hand on Sanders. Guyton had a shot at him on the goalline, but couldn't bring him down. I think I've seen that video about 100 times.

    Here is how i will prove how good a fan i am. It reminds me of Barry sanders run against ronnie lippett I think it was where he spun him around about 5 times on the way the end zone. Although I think Sanders' was a better highlight film than Branch's.

    Wow, I just saw that someone beat me to it. Although I think I get points for Lippett if that was the DB.

    They came closer to getting BS than most of our defense did to tackling Shaun Hill. After he ripped off back-to-back scrambles for like 50 yards I was actually yelling at the TV: "what is this guy, Barry Sanders"?

    Sanders was tremendous. For my money, he's the greatest of my viewing lifetime (Jim Brown is before my time). Give me Barry Sanders and Earl Campbell on my team, and I might never call a passing play.

    Nobody did. It was improvised.

    I, an "86er", deliberately block out bad memories. The only events that really linger are that accursed 'Fridge' and his TD run in SB XX, and Shannon Sharpe's National Guard moment. In the former case, I was a mere babe in the NFL-fandom woods, so full of innocent hope, simply not ready to deal with that kind of trauma :mad: (I'm not sure why it sticks with me, but a more positive "bad" memory goes back to the final game of '89, against the Rams. I've long forgotten what I was working on during the game*, but I do vividly remember keeping an eye out/listening for score updates in the background, my only option back then most Sundays, and never losing faith the Pats would pull out a win. Though they of course did lose, I felt good about the stubborn faith I was still able to muster at the faded end of a losing season, and am glad my loyalty eventually got rewarded :)).

    *I think I may have had a radio on while cleaning up the inside of my car, but other than that I'm a blank.

    Easy...Barry in the 90's. (Deion even mentioned that in his post game presser.)

    Yep, it was Harlon Barnett. He did a full 360 trying to locate Barry Sanders.
    I guessed the Vikings were impressed, because after the season they signed Barnett, so they could line him up against Sanders twice a year...
