Asked about the Martin play after the game, Elway was very gracious: "Just a great play by a great player."
Good story indeed. Also a good memory refresher. Very good description of the runback: "slow . . . , oddly uncontested". And you're right, Martin was not slow. The play just seemed to develop at...
Right. After the game Simms said that as soon as he released the ball he knew he had thrown it exactly the way he wanted to. I remember especially watching the huddle before the play. Phil seemed...
Me, too. It was a 'once-in-a-lifetime' moment. 'Indelible' is the exact word. The play seemed to unfold, inexorably, in slow motion. As I watched, images of Bronco Nagurski, John Henry Johnson,...

Are you saying that players have publicly criticized Coughlin? I guess I missed that.
