    Meh, gotta brush these things aside, its just one random pip squeak's opinion. And it certainly is a memorable play. Unfortunately, I remember it all the f**king time....:mad:

    Any Pats fan that has a problem with the Manning-to-Tyree being the play of the decade amounts nothing more than sour grapes. It was an incredibly fantastic play. If you want to talk about luck, see the play where the Panthers kicked the ball out of bounds...

    Anybody have a problem with the most memorable officiating call being the "tuck rule" play?

    I'd say the most scandelous thing was Spygate was well, especially since Vick's dogfighting had nothing to do with football.

    YOU are the person who sounds like sour grapes..

    The most memorable call of the decade wasn't the tuck rule. I'd have to say it was the travesties that the Colts were involved in.

    As for the Pats videotaping practices, only the ignorant call it Spygate. NO ONE proved that the tapes were used during the games in which they were filmed. In fact, quite the opposite. It was proven that the tapes were used for future scouting purposes. But, keep up the good job... its always a pleasure when fans of other teams show up and spout off..

    The moment it happened
    everyone on this board
    knew it was the Moment of the Decade
    ... if not the moment of much longer.

    Pretty amazing; you managed to take four shots at the Patriots in one post.

    Envy is a strong emotion, is it not?

    If I had to chose between losing a Super Bowl on a "fantastic" catch, winning one due to a kick off going out of bounds, moving on in the playoffs on the path to another Super Bowl win due to a crappy rule being interpreted correctly by the officials and having three Super Bowl wins called into question (and prove the whole spygate thing has legs, I'm all ears) vs losing not one, not two, not three, but four Super Bowls in a row, I'd go with the former seven days a week and twice on Sunday.

    So there you go.

    Tell me a play that was better this decade than Manning-to-Tyree? That's what I was talking about when I said sour grapes. C'mon, it was a great play. Manning incredibly escapes and Tyree makes an incredible circus catch. You have to appreciate that play, Pats fan or not. It was pretty much the play that won the Super Bowl.

    Yeah, maybe you do your best to forget about the tuck rule. I'm sure that the most memorable calls went against your team...that's usually how it works.

    No, everyone outside New England calls it Spygate. That's the name of it. The tapes showed what? What tapes? The tapes that the Patriots CHOSE to turn in in their own sweet time? The debate continues, and that's what makes it a scandal. I'm not here to troll, either. I just agree that Spygate was the biggest scandal of the decade in football. Yeah, I know that most Pats fans get offended, but the Patriots brought all this talk on themselves.

    Right, it's envy.

    Name the four shots I took? I don't see it.

    How is saying that the Manning-to-Tyree play is the play of the decade taking a shot at the Patriots?

    How is saying the "tuck rule" the most memorable officiating call of the decade? I didn't even put a value judgment on it; I said it was the most memorable. It's the one I remember most, and it's the one a lot of other people remember most, too. The Ed Hochuli call in the Chargers-Broncos game is the only one that comes close to being as notorious that I can think of, but there was a lot less at stake in that game since it wasn't the playoffs, and the Chargers made the playoffs instead of the Broncos anyway. But the biggesst game of travesty of officaiting happened in the Seahawks/Steelers Supber Bowl. The officials absolutely handed that game to the Steelers through a series of terrible calls, taking away like three touchdowns or something like that.

    Finally, Spygate was a HUGE scandal no matter what conclusions you drew from it.

    I may have taken a single shot at the Patriots in terms of the fact they were allowed to choose what material to turn into the league office...that was it. Then again, what I said is true. I think it would be rather naive to draw conclusions based on what the Patriots turned in...as though assuming that was all their was. Here is another "shot:" there is a school of thought that the NFL had a vested interest to take steps that this scandal went away as quickly as possible. People still have various opinions about it all over the place. If you don't at least label it a scandal, you are in denial. Even if you were found 100% innocent through indisputable evidence, which you weren't, it would still have been a scandal.

    Yeah, there I go. You win.

    But I'd rather be a fan of the Bills than any other team, too. So I win as well.

    It could be worse.

    You could be a Browns fan.

    Or a Cubs fan.

    So you've got that going for you.

    Which is nice.

    And keep hating on the Patriots.

    Takes the edge off for you I'm sure.

    Absolutely, and to call it anything less than that is to deny what's one of the best parts of the game of football, as well as one of the worst. Had the Pats made that catch this thread would be taking a whole new path:D

    As to the "best" I don't know, AV's Snow Bowl kick is right up there; imho that moment made believers out of everybody and we've never looked back(nobody has really) until the Tyree catch.

    Good or bad plays like those are the kind that make or break a season, never forgotten, and their sheer impossibility of happening is what takes people's breath away. What were the odds of AV's kick going through the uprights? Literally a snowball's chance in hell, same as Tyree's catch. It's painful but that doesn't lessen it as a play which helped define a decade. So random but so incredibly huge, it deserves it's high ranking.

    If one of the Pats had made that catch I'd donate a monument of it to Patriot's Place,are you kidding me:D

    It should be the #1 all-decade moment, it's one of if not the most remarkable play in Super Bowl history.

    "Luck" is such a poor-sport cop out, it was an amazing play.

    Actually, I didn't. In some sort of psychotic way I kind of "lol wtf" laughed it off, having no doubt in my mind we wouldn't allow them in the end zone. Obviously, I was wrong. Very wrong.

    Are you serious?

    The accusation, the publicity, the punishment, the controversy, the way it was handled, the calling into question of integrity...shall I go on, or should I just post the definition of scandal?

    James Harrison's interception in the past SB off the top of my head would get my vote over the Tyree catch. AV's FG against the Raiders too. I'd take the Troy Brown strip against McCree in the Chargers game. Ray Lewis strip of Eddie George.

    They should have had biggest fcuk up of the decade.

    VanderJerk miss against the Steelers.
    The Bus fumble on the 1 yard line in the same game.
    Romo snap fumble.
    Cardinals giving the game to the Bears (Denny Green game).
    Favre 5 INTs vs Rams in the playoffs.
    Hasselbeck pick 6 after saying we'll take the ball and score.

    The Bills are my team, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Which part of that don't you understand?

    YOU just hated on the Bills pretty hardcore, didn't you? I was just discussing the article. For the record, I've hated the Patriots even during the years and years and years when they sucked, if only because they are in the AFC East. That's not to say that clouds my judgment about the particulars.

    If you are so paranoid as to say that anyone that thinks Manning-to-Tyree was a fantastic play is taking a shot at your team, then God bless you.

    IMO, it is the #2 all-decade moment; it led to the winning score, it was not the play that resulted in the winning score.

    Adam's kick sailing through the uprights to end Super Bowl 36 is the #1 all-decade moment.

    The catch is by far the greatest catch in Super Bowl history.

    Probably in the history of the NFL as a matter of fact when you factor in the degree of difficulty (Manning escapes a sure sack, heaves up a prayer and through an incredible feat of athletic skill, the catch is made), the stage on which it played out (the Super Bowl) and the result of the catch (the Giants, 12 point underdogs, went on to win the game and ruin the Patriots perfect season).

    All of those things combined make it the greatest catch ever.
