Anyone remember the errant snap in the SB?

Anyone remember the errant snap in the SB? 


Early, put Denver in a hole. A game of emotion.
Robustelli, Grier, Katcavage and Mowgolesky (sp?)
Opening drive , move well, Rote all alone in the end zone, drops a sure six and the lead. Green Bay slaughters us.
Superb San Fran, playoff hardened. Early: Rice all alone, green and not blue between him and the end zone. Drops it. Slaughter on.

 Sorry Grizz299, I just don't understand any point you are trying to make here
There is no 'I' in team

I think all those slaughters were set up by one play early.
I think if Rote holds on, we could have played with those Packers. Rice holds on and they go up seven 0 and everything is different.
We were good but noone was that much better than that wonderful San Fran team.

The center snaps one over Peyton's head and they are in a terrible hole and now the centers shaking and maybe Peytons saying "oh my god,here we go again.
. I believe one play early in those big games can mean everything.
I'm going to extend that, Seattle is not as good as everyone thinks. We get one or two breaks and we can play with them. Didn't mean to extend the point, really two threads.

I'm an old Giants fan and I love to think back on those incredible times when we went from being the clowns of the NFL to hoisting the Lombardi trophy.  (Heck, thank you Phil S. LT, Leonard Marshall, Carl Banks, et. all).  Seeing just ONE of those moments probably would have kept me happy for a lifetime--but 3 more!!!!!!

As for the foreseeable future, with Eli, we'll be in the hunt for another.  Maybe not die-cast, written in stone, can't possibly lose variety, but we'll be in the hunt again soon.  

So, Grizz, could you at least give me a reference point as to which game you are remembering?  I'd like to remember it too--especially after last year; HOPE kept me from flinging objects at a rather expensive, yet modest, Flat screen TV that I own.

That snap over Mannings head pointed out two important points. The speed of the Seahawk defense and the lack of the same with the Bronco offense.

Sorry grizz299, I heartily disagree about Rice the what 'might have been'. Even Walsh admitted that had Rice caught that ball and ran for a TD, then the Niners would have lost 49-10. We WERE the dominant team then and we WERE better than SF. Yes, it might have given them some hope, but once we went about our business, they would have seen it was hopeless.
At least that's the way I saw it then and STILL see it that way today.

I really don't think early plays like that make a difference. Rice scores and they lose just as bad. They were not going to play with the Giants that day, no way. Giants slaughtered them. They were better in every single way.

Seahawks were better than the Broncos too. They were great all year last year and their physicality was not going to be matched by Denver. It was just like the early 90s when the Bills were so good but they couldn't compete with the NFC East powerhouses like Washington and Dallas who were faster and more physical.

I think one play that changed a game was the Armstead pick-six against the Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV. That was supposed to be a low scoring game and that play would have tied the game at 7 halfway through the 2nd quarter. Instead the Giants fell behind 10-0 and knew they weren't going to score twice on that Ravens defense and as the game went on they got more desperate leading to the blowout.

Good teams rely on their stars,
Great teams rely on each other.
