    It would be nice to see some old pats games , like from 70's to 80's up there.. They have a 87 mnf game agains the jets, and 1980 game against the bills, but there has to be others out there.

    The '70s ones were a little before my time (just a little), and because I grew up in an NFC home, this is more what I remember:

    YouTube - NFL Today 1982 Opening

    I used to really like that CBS theme, and I was looking forward to hearing it again when they took over the AFC games in 1998. However they only played the opening notes at the beginning and then segued into different music, which has since been replaced by the theme they use now.

    Ah, the good ol' days of Brent Musburger and Jimmy "the Greek". :)

    I have to admit the graphics were stunning . . . for 1978. I'm just amazed at how good chyrons have gotten since. :)

    The music--well, it has a nice personality. ;) :eek:

    I love this stuff !! Love seeing the old Pats, the old uni's. Heck, even seeing Vagas Ferguson for a few plays was cool. I though he was gonna be a star (thought that about Hart Lee Dykes too).
