That was the game where Jimmy had tears in eyes at the presser and nobody said a word on the flight home after Jimmy chewed some tail when some guys were laughing and playing cards.
You were there too??? I was there maybe 30 rows up from that particular end zone in the corner. I remember the refs and players digging thru the pile to find out who had recovered the fumble. Then you look out maybe a full 40 yards away from the action and a Redskins player is all alone jumping up and down waving the football. It's funny because absolutely nobody in the stadium initially saw him retrieve the ball and move away from the crowd. Then seemingly at once everyone finally sees him waving the ball with all the Skins players and fans pointing at him. I think the Skins player was #26(Copeland?). They definitely could've used instant replay...
Anyway that was a great game to see live. As you said, we carried the game throughout. The Skins got a flea-flicker to score their only TD early. A HB pass to a wide open receiver. I remember it like yesterday. Then the bottom fell out for the Boys late in the game. Being at that game, even before the Boys had won their first of 3 SBs, you could sense the team had already reached the rock-star status.
