apparently they said that he was getting shut down for most of the game and it was mainly a shootout.

Steve Young vs. some Jets Scrub QB who threw for 400+ yards

lol I remember being so angry and Langham that year.

We used to tell jokes. "Why shouldn't Antonio Langham own a nightclub?"

"because there would be no cover!"

Much like that joke, he was the worst.
didn't nfln ranked this the tenth best opening game of all time? Or was it the top ten finish to a game? It was ranked rather low IMO in either category.
Sooo Good

Man, I was living in Colorado at the time. It was towards the end of the game and my dad calls me. He is talking and Hearst starts the run. My dad is flipping out on the phone, only we are like 10 seconds delayed so I am freaking out not understanding what is happening. Then I see it. Such an awesome ending and run.
What a block by Owens. You see how much faster he ran than Hearst?
