You Want an Inspirational Video???

Superbowl XXII Highlight - Watch more funny videos here

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's from 1988, but we also could get one from '91. But this is my all-time favorite football memory encapsulated into a nice 2.5 minute video that is great for the following reasons:

1) Narrated by the great John Facenda
2) Contains a cheezy 80s synthesized version of Hail to the Redskins.
3) We see lots of 80s women with their frizzed out hairstyles
4) Dexter Manley, Joe Jacoby, and Clint Didier celebrate together. Great 80s Redskins.

Say what you want about the Redskins today, but the second quarter of Super Bowl XXII will not be replicated for some time in a Super Bowl

That's the first football game I remember watching. I was 6 at the time, and watched it with my Grandfather (huge Skins fan).

I was the only kid in my third grade class rooting for the Broncos.

Yes...a Super Bowl blowout...what a great memory. Nowhere near as good as the 4th quarter in the Rams-Titans SB (XXXIV) or Montana's 4th quarter against Cincy or Tom Brady's 4th quarter in XXXVI.

I regret to inform you that the voice you speak of is not the great John Facenda. I believe that is Jeff Kaye narrates this film. Facenda died in 1984. He did narrate XVII though.

Teams never do that in Super Bowls, regular season, college, high school etc.

Though if you meant the 35 points in a quarter, I am sure you are right. No other team will choke as badly as the Broncos did on both defense and offense in that quarter.

I meant the 35 points in one quarter. And my bad on Facenda. I stand corrected. But the awful 80s perms are indeed there.

With the trades and acquisitions made going into the draft, plus the bulk of the team that is carried over from last season, and the trades and draft picks made during the draft, it sure seems like the Pats are going to be the team to beat in the AFC this season, and perhaps in all of the NFL.

Considering the Pats were almost in the Superbowl last season with a pathetic receiving corps and that they've added very talented players into said receiving corps this season, barring some nasty injury(ies), they look to be the team to take it all.I say injury(ies) because I think they could survive an injury or two to some positions, but if they lost Brady they'd probably have a hard time recovering.

I wish I could say that the Redskins did well in the draft and/or in free agency but so many holes still exist that I'm not sure they'll be significantly better than last season. I suppose on face they should be if they can keep their corners healthy. With Landry (argh, hard to type that name as a Redskin!!) back there with a healthy secondary they might be able to cheat up more and put more pressure on opposing QBs. Might.

They still have what should be a lot of talent in the receiving positions, and Campbell should be better, but they don't have the quality on either line (offense or defense) that I wish they'd have, so it could be yet another year of .500 at best, or worse.

Still, the NFC East looks to be the NFC Least again this season. None of the teams there look like they'll be that good, and none really look ready to step up and take the division.
