Re: Before There Was Such a Thing as a Superbowl,

Ah, times past when football was played on real grass, in the mud and at times snow. At the end of the game it was like a game trophy to walk to the locker rooms dirty, muddy and at times more. NOSTALGIA.... The last game I saw in Romney Stadium was in November 1994. Snow was piled high on the side...

Really good, but the deep fake video stuff was really weird and unnecessary. I would have preferred more interviews with current figures who have a recollection of those days to give context.

Supposed to focus on Al's feud with Pete Roselle. Featuring a young Al Davis. I'll tape it and watch. It's a good show for those who never saw the Raider glory years, and never knew the history. How innovative and influential Al was in the NFL.

Pro QB's need time on the field to develop. Either in pre-season or during the season as replacements for injured players. Love has none of this. The Packers made a good investment picking Love.

There is ongoing Raider curse on Brady at play here.

Brady had Randy "No Mass" from the Raiders and the Pats lost the SB after a great season. Now Brady has Antonio "frostbite crackhead" Brown from the Raiders on his team. The curse is real.

Smith is a great coach, you know he told them exactly what to do. The players are still too fat headed from winning 11? straight to take the coaching.

Justin Bean is a really good player who deserves lots of minutes. That said, he should not be playing over Fonz right now.
As good as Bean can look in some games? He can also look equally bad. Those were really tough matchups for him on CSU.

Impressive. That game v/Air Force was a shocker to me. I'd seen us get blown out couple of times early in the season and thought the BB team was going to be worse than our FB team.
