The video of Lilly telling that story is simply awesome. His demonstration of that technique made me blink.
BTW, those old uniforms just rock. Man those were the days.
This is a team who is battling several major injuries to
key players including Pro Bowl talents like Lee, Austin, Jenkins, Murray,
Carter and Ratliff. Other key starters missing include Costa, Smith, Church and
Coleman. That is 11 key players - that's half the starting lineup. Yet we still went 8-8.
