It may take many more years to forget about that game, but with proper counseling and patience I believe it is possible.

Man, I get sick of just thinking about it!

Watching Tony Boselli and Mark Brunell's careers spiral in relative obscurity gave me the revenge feeling that helped me get over it. It's hard for me to believe that Brunell is in his 17th year in the NFL. Makes me feel old for sure.

Perry is still trying to get off the field. Never forgive him. That Packer team was signifigantly weaker than the 97 team.

Speaking of the Jaguars, how does Jack Del Rio keep a job?

All this talk of Shanahan going to Dallas or San Diego - I'll tell you what... I wouldn't be suprised to see him with full control of the Jaguars next year, running MoJo Drew. I know he likes MoJo.

That was just a freak accident no meant to have happened

I've been hating that Jax ever since. Damn, I'm pissed all over again! Uhh

Luckily I am young enough not to remember it.

The only downside to that is i vaguely remember any of the superbowl victories. I remember the Helicopter... the Ed hit and the after party. I was living in Wisconsin during the first win... I was easily the most hated kid in school... might have to do with the fact i was sporting an Elway jersey the next day.

We crushed them like a bug in the playoffs the next year and went on to win the Super Bowl, so it's all good.

310 rushing yards and 511 total yards of offense, with Terrell Davis alone rushing for 184 yards and 2 touchdowns. Final score 42-17.

I think Elway would have retired.

Anyone think we could have won another superbowl without Elway and with TD (healthy) Shannon, Smith, Ed and the rest of the gang?

I'd have to say that those two teams have to be top ten greatest teams of all time.

So could any other QB have managed to pull it off?

He would've retired after 2 in a row any way you slice it. Although, even Bubby mightve won a superbowl with that team in 98

I am constantly amazed when I see Brunell with the Saints now...that THIS is the same guy that ran all over our D that day. Hard to believe...even when you factor in Time.

There are two images that still haunt me when I close my eyes.

One is Clarence Kay making that rolling catch in the Super Bowl against the Giants and getting incorrectly called incomplete.

The other is Michael Dean Perry walking his lazy ass off the field at about 1 mph.

i still throw random things at the TV whenever I hear the name Tony Boselli...and when I see Woody Paige for a number of reasons, one being that he called the Jaguars the Jagwads virtually crushing any karmic advantage we may have had. Not to mention pissing off the Jagwads something awful.

Agreed, brother. That Jags loss is still one of the bitterest I can remember.

The only ones that bother me more are the two Superbowl losses to the 49ers and 'Skins.
The fact that the Niners have been pounded into obscurity for the better part of a decade doesn't even begin to heal those old wounds....

Alright, I'm going to stop writing the rest of this post before I start drinking myself into a coma.

I've thought the same thing about Shanahan going to Jax. Then they began winning....until San Fran. I don't know how Jax management is looking at this years team and Del Rio, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him go there.

I'm still not over that 97 game either and I doubt all the counseling in the world will help. GB should not have been the SB champs that year, we'd have demolished them. I remember one year later, January 4, 1998, I stressed majorily that it was our unlucky day and there would be a repeat. There wasn't....KC went down, in KC. It was great!

I never expected to win the Dallas or San Fran SB's. I had moments of thinking we could but in reality I knew it probably wouldn't happen. The other losses were our teams fault, primarily Dan Reeves. I've begun to hate Simms though, seems like everytime he announces one of our games we lose, plus his offspring this year...yuck. The only player from one of our SB's I have a passionate dislike for is Favre. Cocky little bastard before that SB win, it gave me great pleasure to dash his dreams.

12-05-2009, 09:22 AM
One way to look at it is that had we won it all in '96 then '97 wouldn't have been as much fun. We were an underdog Wild Card team, had to win on the road in KC and Pitt, and then weren't given a chance in the Super Bowl. Nothing more fun that winning when you're not expected to and shutting up all the naysayers.

better than him telling us about New Town, South Dakota (or was it North Dakota?). That loss sucked but with our two wins in the Super Bowl right after that, most of the players got to revenge that horrible game. I am more pissed about losing to the Steelers now than that game. Super Bowls cured my hate. Let it go, Spider, let it go!

Exactly. How in the hell can people not be over that loss. The following year we got our wish and got to play them again and just absolutely destroyed them, and then followed that up with back to back superbowl wins. It was the best ever way to overcome a bad playoff loss like that.

I've heard it rumored that Elway might have retired after XXXI had they won it all and that the Jax game was a huge motivation to come back after we won it all in XXXII.

Everyone thinks we "absolutely destroyed" the Jaguars in the 1997 wild card playoff revenge game. And stat wise we may have.

But that game got pretty scary as well. We dominated to the tune of a 21-3 lead as I remember, but the Wads sacked Elway for a turnover and stole a ball of Rouen's toe for a TD and suddenly it was 21-17. That was the score with about 10 minutes left in the game.

Over he last 10 minutes it was the Derek Loville show, of all people.

But that game got real scary for a while.
