    I was traveling overseas when the Bucs played the Eagles in NFC championship game. My son in law was a huge Eagles fan, and I had to watch the game at 5:00 am Korean time. I still remember Barber intercepting the ball on the 5 yard line and running it back for a TD. IT was fantastic. I also keenly remember that the Bucs scored more points on defense in the Super Bowl than the Raiders did on offense. They were a amazing.

      I was in Korea in 1973. It took me a month back in Florida to thaw out.

    When an event is so moving, folks seem to remember exactly where they were when it happened. Kennedy getting shot, 911, Bill Mazeroski’s home run in 1960, Clay knocking out Sonny Liston, and of course,”The Pick”.

    That teams dominance was insane. I remember me and my brother renting a 60 inch TV, that was huge for back then, for that super bowl. Before halftime that game was damn near in the bag. To be able to get pressure with just your front four, and makes your defense almost unstoppable. Thus leading to a 45 QBR for opposing QB’s that year. I think they gave up like 10 total passing TD’s that year. That is absurd! However with rule changes in today’s NFL, that might be impossible to replicate with new rules and all.

    That was a magical time for us Bucs fans. Our D was spectacular game after game, and although our running game was marginal, our short passing game made up for it and more. When we beat the Eagles in Philly it was a done deal. We were going to win the Superbowl. After that game – beating the Eagles in Philly – I knew that the Raiders, on a neutral field, had no chance.

    And they didn’t.

      Oh, yeah… We closed out the Vet with that game, beating them in front of their nasty fans, crushing their pitiful Superbowl dreams. And we opened the Linc by beating their asses again!

      Sweet, sweet times.
