Moby, I am not going to try to decipher the Dead Sea scrolls post above. The University
of Cambridge has a very well respected archaeology department, they may be able to
figure out what the above post has to do with American football.

My son has played quarter back and corner back for 5 years and I've watched most of his games.  I still have no idea what's going on and I've got a bsc.  The American dad's love it.  The British cheerleaders are way behind the USA ones.

My son was coached by Zack Follett who gave up playing because he broke his neck so many times.

I am genuinely intrigued.  How can anyone break their neck more than once?  And not be a paraplegic, that is.

Ok.  Just did.  He was injured during a game in 2010 and was taken to the hospital and was tested for a cervical spine fracture, which, fortunately, was negative.  But he was placed on injured reserve by the Lions and released the following year.

Couldn't find any information about broken necks.


Anyway, back to the topic at hand:  Go Rams, Saints, Colts and Patriots!

Except for the Colts, I'm the opposite. Cowboys, Eagles and most definitely, GO Chargers!!! So tired of the Pats I could puke  :puke:

Well, I would think so. It's 18 years ago...though Brady/Bill are a fixture, most of those Patriots are gone, too.

'94-'95 season when they left LA (OC actually), ultimately becoming the 'greatest show on turf under Kurt Warner', who still btw announces for Ram games today.

Nope. You're wrong...Rams (15-3) have a better record than New England (13-5) going into the Super Bowl.

The Pats were losers for a long time and were NEVER on TV out West and the
Cowboys were on TV nearly every week. From 1966 to the early 1980's the
Cowboys were the class of the NFL.

When the Patriots got good, there rest of their division was really mediocre for
over a decade.

Um.  In 1965, 66 and 67 the Packers were the class of the NFL.  Coached by a little known coach.   Someone named 'Lombardi', or something like that.

Vince Lombardi was named NFL coach of the year '59 and '61.

Vince Lombardi was named NFL coach of the year '59 and '61.

He was?  Great book read:  "When Pride Still Mattered" by David Maraniss.  Lombardi was raised by an immigrant butcher in Sheepshead Bay.   A little known fact about him is that Richard Nixon was set to approach him to be his running mate for President, then found out that Lombardi was a Democrat.   The Wisconsin Democratic Party, upon hearing that, made sure that Lombardi was hooked up with some investments that made him a semi-wealthy man.   His business partner's son was a fraternity brother of mine in college.

Another tidbit is that after MacArthur's dismissal in Korea, he was residing in the Waldorf Astoria in NYC.  As assistant coach of the Army team, Lombardi used to take films down to MacArthur so he could watch the Army games in his hotel room.   Be interesting to be a fly on the wall of those conversations.

Oh, one more thing:  Lombardi was later an assistant coach of the New York Giants.   He ran the offense under Jim Lee Howell.   Now, especially for 2TallBill:   Lombardi was the offensive genius who made that team work.   But his counterpart on defense was also as impressive:   Some former defensive back who became an assistant coach named Tom Landry.   Howell was quoted as saying:  "All I have to worry about is putting air in the footballs."

Pretty much a boring game for me, as I like offensive shoot outs rather than defensive struggles.

Just out of college and before the Army called me up for the growing conflict in Vietnam, I worked briefly in California on math modeling of ground water.  One Sunday I went to the Coliseum to see the Rams play, quarterbacked by one of your distant cousins.  Loved the helmets.   Rams lost.

You were wearing diapers, assuming you existed.   

Interesting venue.  I splurged on a good seat and saw two unimportant but recognizable movie actors.
