    I can't verify the accuracy but according to a blog on a lphins* blog, in their last game they set a record as the first team to ever come away from a 1st and 1 with no points.


    *lphins because they have no D and no O.

    That can't be a first. I'm sure I remember goal stands like that late in games.

    Re: lphins set a record.

    I can't say for sure one way or another. I know I have seen 1st and goal on the 2 or 3 yard line not succeed. And I know I have seen 1st and 1 become a fg. But this could be a record. But as I said, I can't be sure.

    Re: lphins set a record.

    Good lord, that's no record. How many times has a team been stopped on the 1 needing to score a TD to win the game and failing to convert 4 times? Didn't we stop the Colts in this situation in 2003 (big McGinest play)?

    Several years ago in the heyday of Buddy Ryan's Eagles, the Cardinals (were they still in St. Louis or AZ??? who cares) had a 1st and goal at the one. They failed the first two times but there was a penalty on the Eagles on the second play giving them a new first down. They tried 4 more times but failed to score.
    !st and goal at the one and they failed 6 times to score............

    Hell, the Packers stoned us on the one in 1997, Foxboro, Drew finally threw the ball on fourth down and the Pack took over.

    Colts started at the 2 or 3. But I have a hard time believing this is the first time this has happened.

    The Colts actually started 1st and goal on the 2 in that game, and gained on yard on the first down.

    The 49ers had a very famous goal line stand in the 1981 Super Bowl with the Bengals tried four times from the one and failed that might have changed that game. It has happened many times.

    I don't know what's funnier in your sig video...Alex Smith losing the ball or the fullback trying to block the DT.

    That's right. Dan Bunz and Hacksaw (one of the best nicknames in history) Reynolds made big stops on Pete Johnson and Charles Alexander.
