It was 2008. Steelers v. Ravens for AFC Championship. Opening kickoff, Steelers to the Ravens. Two Ravens got carried off the field on the opening kickoff to set the tone for what may have been the hardest hitting game I ever watched. Nothing better than two Ravens KO'd on the opening kickoff. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Yeah, that was after his infamous drop.

When I read the title, I tried to think of my all-time ST play and I had to throw out Vanderjagdt's shank in the '05 divisional playoff game.

Yeah, that was the hit that, according to many, made up for the drop. :roll:

You can't really "make up" for a drop or a missed INT...it's a missed opportunity gone by...the only thing you can do is make the most of your next opportunity...if that involves laying a guy out on Special Teams, then so be it...

It certainly didn't make up for the drop, but it did show that Sweed didn't give up on himself or allowed his failure to catch a pass cause him make more mistakes. He went out and made a good play. I applaud him for that and scorn him for the drop. I like his attitude.

That Colts play had great signifigance, but it was not (IMHO) a great play. It was a failure by their kicker, not a great play by a Steeler, despite the profound impact on Steeler fortunes. Besides no Ravens got knocked ** out on that play.

2 plays come to mind for me.

1.) 1995 AFFCG vs. Indy. Freddie McAfee storms down the field after Bam scored the go ahead TD w/ like 40 seconds left. He destroyed the kick returner for the Colts. The stadium went crazy!

2.) 1997 @ Balt. Will Blackwell returns a KO to spark a 21 point comeback. This was the infamous Cowher-Kordell smooch game.


...more to come

Tyrone Stowe destroying Robert Delpino (sp?) for the Rams on a MNF game sometime in the early 90s.

I have no idea why, but that hit has stuck with me forever...

The great play occured several plays earlier with Ben catching Harper's shoestring. :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2 :tt2

Oops. Not a special teams play. But definitely a special play. :wink:

Not my all-time favorite or anything, but Patrick Bailey had a heck of a slobberknocker on the free kick from the 20 yard line following the safety late in Super Bowl XLIII.

Recent: Stonio's punt return TD against the Chargers in the playoffs. (I was there with Charger fans).


Old School: Roy Gerela missed FG in Super Bowl. Pat on the head by Dallas player. Lambert Slams Dallas Player.

I'm waiting for a repeat of this on the NFL level before I name my favorite special teams play. :tt2 :tt1
