    it honestly felt like we may have to accept that it would never happen

    those were lean years my friend

    that is exactly why the scene at the Stadium during the NFC championship game against the Redskins looked the way it did ... grown men crying big snotty tears ... strangers hugging each other and holding on for dear life... etc ...

    we never thought we would see the day

    The 81 game happened when I was 23 years old. I had never seen my team in the playoffs. The 86 Redskins game was almost indescribable.
    + a billion.

    But in retrospect the long wait made '86 that much sweeter.
    Thank god it's hockey season.

    I feel for you guys couldn't imagine that kind of dry run.....fans of my era are spoiled (born in '78)....pretty much a trophy every decade hence why many posters have a tough time relating.

    For me, the '86 Redskins game was it.

    I couldn't believe it was real.

    "Giant-wise" you were born at the perfect time. Eight years old in '86? Old enough to know what's going on....perfect.

    Now, "music-wise" a totally different story. You missed out on some great live shows in the 70s....
    Thank god it's hockey season.

    81 finally making the playoffs and then beating the Eagles in the 1st round after they just went to the SB the year before was great. I also liked whooping the Great Niners in the 85 playoffs. At that point I felt we were going to win a SB.

    To give you some perspective...we were essentially the 70's version of today's Browns. Pretty much a laughing stock.

    The last thing.

    Unless you like O-Linemen that hemorrhage pressure relentlessly.
    Diehl was better than flowers is right now that's for sure. He would be an upgrade

    No, Flowers doesn't get bull-rushed inside.

    Diehl couldn't anchor against a simple bull-rush.

    Who cares who gets beat what way more? Bull rush swim move dip and rip, these are all pass rush moves that offensive linemen need to defend. ESPECIALLY left tackles.

    Who cares what move is being used to get beat? Why would an end try to bull rush when they know a speed rush will work?

    Flowers gets beat way more often then Diehl did.. And that should be the only relevant fact when comparing the pass blocking ability between flowers and David Diehl.
