    But to me, nothing compares to 4th and 17 against the Vikings in 1986. Its the play that turned the Giants from a good team to an all time great team.

        That was probably the greatest "Effort Play" of all time.

          im gonna mention the sb 46 pass to MM. it wasnt as dramatic a play, and didnt have any "magic" or "luck" to it, which in my book, makes the play that much better. the eli to tyree play is probably the greatest play in nfl history. i too recall sabol making that claim. i believe that play is still recalled as the greatest sb play in sb history, which can be construed as a bit more objective than trying to define a greatest play of "all time"...but that pass to MM in sb 46 is probably the greatest throw I've seen a QB possibly make. the ball literally gained velocity through its course lol. it fit inside a window no bigger than the football itself...itd almost be like throwing a tennis ball into those tennis ball cans/containers that the ball fits so snug/tightly...and then the catch, with 2 defenders and the sideline, during a SB in the clutch...that play prob wont get the recognition it deserves imo, but it should be up there in the rankings...at that time, everyone was remarking how eerily similar that play was in terms of game drama/big time individual effort to the tyree play in fact...

            Gary Reason's "Hit" ranks up there.

              It was a memorable play but it was a tad "fluky" As you said there was a lot of luck in that play.
              4th and 17 was just an example of great football.

                  On a side note, Joe Buck should have been forced to retire after the game because that was the most pathetic play calling I have ever heard. It sounded like he was a Patriots fan and the play took the wind out of his sail. He was so exited at the prospect of Eli getting sacked that when he avoided it, his exitment fell off a cliff and was completely monotone.

                  It still cracks me up to hear the announcer, which ever idiot said it, to a wide open David Tyree. As I watch that play he has a Patriot all over him.

                      I'll never forget seeing Eli almost get sacked and I already got up and was waiting for the play to end so I could go upstairs and not even watch the rest of the SB. I thought it was over right then.....I won't go into detail about how much I celebrated when Tyree made the catch but let's just say I had to pay my buddy money for repairs to his house.

                      On a side note, Joe Buck should've gotten shot after that play. An investigation should be made to see how much $ he had on the Pats for that game.

                        I loved that clip. Still remember that play too. Great hit. Probably a 15 yrd penalty today. lol

                        Tyree's catch still, is tough to top.

                                It was actually 3rd and 13. He caught it with about 8 yards to go though! All heart. It's a shame he got into trouble after football.
