    That 2000 Superbowl will go down as the only time there was back to back TD kick returns in a playoff game. I don't see that happening ever again.

    Mike alstot used to wear a vest that was attached to 2 big ass chains that he would attach to his F450 and he would straight walk around his property just pulling a fucking truck. Lol.

    I played full back and wore 49 because Richardson was the man on Madden he was your all around back and to be honest would of played halfback or a 3rd down back in today’s game Lorenzo Neal was your big blocker pancake hits and another one of my idols and A Train was your bowling ball who was a slobber knocker also another one of my idols and another reason why I had a big ass neck roll lol

    I'll always wonder what the Rams would have done had Warner not been hurt. They were 6-0 and looked even better than they'd looked the year prior, and then Warner hurt his hand. They went 2-4, and looked really average, after Trent Green took over, but those first 6 games were amazing to watch.

    Don't really understand this video. How old is this kid 10. It was not that long ago. First, the way people took in entertainment speaks to the evolution of technology not sports. People still did the same thing back then though. betting on sports, playing along, and watching it 24/7. In terms of video games, yes it was a big deal from 1996 through 2000 it did change a lot. But EA was king back then, the other ones were a joke. Madden was the king since 1993. And it again just speaks to technology not football. Lastly and the most off base was the play. Yes the game was physical but that did not change until years later. Also the best teams even in 2021 still have the old guard players. Defense is still the most important part of the game. And TE, HB, and RBs may be used differently but big formations are still used. And the change to Running QBs is old school, maybe not 2000 but the change is not new. To speak to Black Qbs which was not spoken of in this video in the AFC central alone in 2000 they had 3 starting QBs that were black. The highlight, the super bowl at the end, was probably the worst and most boring super bowl of all time.

    A T1, more accurately a DS-1, is 1.544 Mbps. In 2000, dial-up modems, maxing out at 56 Kbps were still the predominant mode of access, though cable internet (generally maxing out at around 5 Mbps) was making inroads, as was DSL. Only business had a T1, as a practical matter.

  55. Josh Drumheller

    Josh DrumhellerDay ago

    True story: The Ravens returner in the Super Bowl, Jermaine Lewis, when he returned that kickoff for a touchdown, you see him point up to the sky. His son was stillborn just before the Super Bowl. He dedicated that kickoff return to him. Quite a sentimental moment.

    Football was so much better back then, & so was basketball too for that matter. If you were born in the mid to late 90s chances are that you've never really seen football like this, at least not for long, & because of that you don't really know what you're missing. It doesn't matter that there were legitimate reasons for the rule changes, you were frustrated by all of the flags thrown on a play that, only last year, was perfectly legal.
