    I remember being at this game as a kid. When Derrick Jensen returned the onside kick for a TD, Cedrick Hardman doubled over with what I thought was an injury..when I read an article the next day in the Newark Star Ledger I found the reason: he doubled over with laughter....

    The Steelers had no pass rush in 1980. Three good reasons why. Age, the team cut Dwaine Board in 1979 and was going to pick Rulon Jones in the first round of the 1980 draft, but shifted to Mark Malone due to Bradshaw’s threatening retirement.

    Doug Williams wasn’t offered a contract by the owner after the 1982 season. Hugh Culverhouse was down on him for not winning a SB at that point and Williams amazingly wasn’t signed by anyone. Maybe Williams’ wife being sick had something to do with it and he turned down offers, buy you know who should have offered Doug a contract? The Steelers. Once Bradshaw wasn’t ready for camp due to his elbow the Steelers should have signed him. Williams could have QB’d the franchise for the rest of the decade he was that good.

    Al t hough injured for most of the season, Paul Hofer was in fact the starting RB for the first 49ers team. COming off a great year in 1980 (for him personally, not the team), he played in the pre season and I think the first couple games. Regardless, he was pencilled in as the starter. I want to say that Lenvil Elliot/Bill Ring and Amos Lawrence filled in for the 1981 season when he got injured. 82 was a strike year of course and I believe he was cut before 83. That is all of the head. I didnt check statfinder so I could be wrong

    The game that really had a significant view on the end of the Steeler dynasty was the 49er at Steeler game 1981. 49ers 17-14. The Steelers first loss at Three Rivers in 10 yrs to an NFC team. The last loss to the Rams in 1971. Rams owned the Steelers in 70,s. Until Superbowl XIV. Jan-1980.

    Interesting they mention how the 49ers felt about their defense before anybody could see what was coming. What changed in 1981 when they went from 6-10 to starting their long run at the top was drafting Lott, Williamson and Wright, all of whom started in the secondary, and then trading for Hall of Fame pass rusher Fred Dean after the 4th or 5th game. Suddenly, they had a great defense for dealing with an increasingly pass-happy NFL. When the 1994 49ers got over the hump, it wasn't just Steve Young having one of the best seasons a QB ever had -- the defense ranked No. 1 and had Defensive POY Deion Sanders.

I was 16 on that day and a Vikes' fan....Houston was tough all of Bum's years !!

    17:17 27 years later, in 2001, Ford Field was under construction in downtown Detroit, waiting for the Lions to come back home to the city, while the Pontiac Silverdome was becoming an obsolete NFL venue. Then, the Pistons, who played at the Silverdome from 1978 to 1988, then the Palace of Auburn Hills from 1988 to 2017, eventually followed suit, by becoming co-tenants with the Red Wings at the new Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit. It's proven that downtown Detroit, has slowly come back to life in the 21st century. As the Silverdome, it's all open land, after it was completely demolished in 2018. As for the Palace, it's about the meet the wrecking ball this year after Pistons owner Tom Gores sold the arena.

    Ted Hendricks #83 of the Raiders played 15 seasons from 1969-83 At the end of the 1979 season a vote among Raider coaches showed that all of them had voted to release Hendricks at season's end. However, Al Davis insisted on keeping him. 1980 was an incredible year for Hendricks, an All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection. The Raiders won the Super Bowl, and Hendricks had a team-leading 9 sacks plus 3 interceptions, 3 blocked kicks and a safety. He also had been appointed the Raiders' defensive captain that year. Hendricks was at his best over nine seasons with the Raiders from 1975-83. The Raiders gave him the freedom to roam the line, blitz on impulse, read the play and react. Nobody could key on him. Hendricks could disrupt the other team's offense like few others. Career Accomplishments Baltimore Colts (1969-1973) Green Bay Packers (1974) Oakland Raiders (1975-1983) 8x Pro Bowl selection 4x All Pro selection 4x Super Bowl champion 25 career blocked kicks 26 interceptions Never missed a game (215 games played) Pro Football Hall of Fame selection

    I was very pleased to see this game posted. Dan Pastorini would have completed this season had he not broken his leg( unfortunately). Plunkett being on the sidelines showed the commitment the Raiders had for Pastorini. This Raiders team had so much momentum going into the super bowl that they couldn't loose. I think this team was surprised at the consistency that Pastorini was bringing to the game plan. Plunkett right place right time and of course his athleticism, experience and maturity showed. Plunkett could've easily watched Pastorini and I believe this Raiders team would have still won the championship. Pastorini went to the Rams and the end of his dream to be a super bowl champion quarterback ended. Stabler continued with Oilers, Saints. R.i.p Mr. Stabler. Pastorini is and was a winner. Glad I found one game with Pastorini as a Raider. Now I'll need to find a Jersey.

    Damn.. I miss the old days.. The Bucs were gamers back then.. However 97- 02 were my favorite years, because it was a return to defense of the late 70's/ early 80's... Year's later, my friends and I used to have drinks with House, Brantley, Giles, and Wilder at the old O'Brien's in Carrollwood, and talk football.. These teams from 79-82 were just a bit short of being play-off forces to recon with in the NFL. Just tremendous heart..

    I was at that game. It was while I was in the US Navy. I had a temporary assignment at Naval Station Treasure Island. The official reason for the assignment at TI was to recharge breathing devices with oxygen, but that assignment was a cover so that I could play on Treasure Island's football team. The 1979 49ers lost most of their games. Little did any know in October 1979 what the 49ers would become. It seems like such a short time ago.

    This is the only time the Raiders lost on MNF in the entire decade of the 1970's. This is back when the Bills used to be on MNF 2-3 times a year mostly because of OJ Simpson. Can't even remember the last time MNF came to Buffalo but I have a feeling they'll get a few prime time games in 2020 after their great 2019 season. The best thing that has happened to the Bills franchise in about 20 years is new ownership and the hiring of GM Brandon Beane and HC Sean McDermott. Ralph Wilson's cheapskate mentality is the reason the Bills were a laughingstock for most of their existence. At least the Pegula's actually care whether they win or lose
