Your Favorite MNF Moment


Cujo

Recommended Posts

Since tonight was the last night of Monday Night Football on ABC, I figured I'd throw out my favorite MNF moment. It would have to be the comeback the Jets put on the Dolphins in 2000. The Jumbo Elliott catch and Hall's game winner in OT. That is probably my favorite game of all-time, let alone my favorite Monday Night game.

I also gotta say that it was pretty nice to see Vinny throw the final TD pass on MNF. :D

I like the fact that the Jets list the first ever Monday Night Football game 21-31, and lost the last on ABC 21-31.

But then, maybe I just like seeing the Jets lose.

Certainly has Symmetry (wouldn't it be better for our word for symmetry be a palindrome?)

Tank--the Dolphins win was poetic, and Theissman's broken leg hurts to even think about.

I loved the TO Sharpie.

This is out of the ordinary, but how about when the Niners lit up the Steelers 30-14 in November 2003. (I remember Tim Rattay and TO were lighting it up, and that was the last ever Niners apperance)

the last time ever...............ever that, that kinda thing will happen

Favorite moment? Bo Jackson's 91-yard touchdown run vs. Boz and the Seahawks where he runs halfway down the tunnel. Nice! Close second would have to be Brett Farve's 399 yard performance right after his dad died.

I hate to call out people for their opinions, but Tanky, if your second favorite moment is one of the most horrific sports injuries captured on film...that says alot about you and most of it ain't good. What the hell has Joe Theismann ever done to you? You know, if you had broken your leg on national TV, Joe Theismann wouldn't consider it a favorite TV moment. He would probably just say, "who the :censored: is Frank Fleming?" Then he would change the channel.

Cunningham's play against the Giants (1990???), one play among many for Cunningham on MNF

Montana/Elway in Denver in 1994 (or 1995)

Bledsoe's miracle against the Dolphins in 1998

Vikings/Packers in 2000 - "He did WHAT?????"

Pats/Broncos in 2003

Broncos/Rams in 2000

Dolphins/Jets in 2000

Packers/Bears in 1994 - on Halloween I believe - I'll always remember the wind

Pats/Dolphins last year (2004), what a miserable ending :)

1994

Thank you B)

Two other games I remember when I was a little one:

Broncos at Jets in 1986 or so...Jets destroyed the Broncos...but one play is pretty famous on videos -> Elway falling down and making an incredible pass to Mark Jackson

Broncos at Colts in 1988 I think...Halloween...Hoosier Dome was just rocking, everyone had masks and was dressed up...Dickerson ran for like 280000 yards against the Broncos.

First MNF game in 2003. Bucs beat the Eagles 17-0 to spoil the first ever game at Lincoln Financial Field after Spoiling the Final game at the Vet the year before. B)

Sure your fave isn't the other Tampa game from '03 when they hosted Indy?? :P

Leaping, baby!

How the hell did I forget that? I think that's one of my all-time favorites, not just MNF, even though I was never much of a Brett Favre fan.

I'll also agree with NewYawkSeahawk on that. It's not often that Seattle was on Monday Night Football. Of course, someone already mentioned Bo bulldozing The Boz, but that does stick out in my mind as the start of the end for Bosworth.

Also, there was the Dallas comeback against the Seahawks last year. I went to bed knowing that Seattle was winning and when I woke up the nedxt morning, I heard that Dallas won. I was like "How the :censored: did they blow that lead?!?"

12/22/86: New England Patriots 34, Miami Dolphins 27

My favorite moment was a play that officially isn't even on the books. The Patriots were at Miami for the last game of the 1986 season.

Dan Marino was taking a shotgun snap, when the center shot the ball over his head, Patriots' linebacker Andre Tippett scooped up the ball, broke no less than half a dozen tackles, and carried three more people on his back into the end zone. It was one of the most determined touchdowns I ever saw, then it got called back.

It wasn't due to a penalty but due to a really stupid rule the NFL had at the time. The head referee told the crowd in a rather long winded fashion that since the ball never touched Marino in any way, the ball could be recovered by the defense but not advanced back for a score. Therefore it would New England's ball at the point of recovery. The entire rumble all the way back was for nothing. Tippett, who is usually the poster child of cool went understandably ape$#!t. I believe they have since changed the rule, but that game was far closer because of that rule.
