this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
OT: 30 for 30- Elway to Marino on tonight 8ET
At 8:00pm EST the Food Network Chopped is showing "Bite your beefed tongue" as long as we're just posting what's on TV tonight.
A brief synopsis of what the 30 for 30 film is about would be nice. Did the two of them complete a pass during an All-Star game or something?
They were drafted in the same draft is about as close a connection I can find.
That's easily one of the better episodes. Tough decision going on in my household tonight.
NFL films is in charge of this so I have high hopes.
...has a detailed summary with some minor spoilers - (HERE)
It sounds fascinating, given how the article is framed. Essentially, this is about the machinations of the 1983 NFL Draft using material from the diaries of Marvin Demoff, who represented both Elway and Marino.
One thing that stands out for some reason is that apparently the Chargers pretended to be interested in Elway so they could get some negotiations going with Dan Fouts. Also, the Dolphins' Plan B was Ken O'Brien from UC Davis.
....two great rookie cards from the same set. 1984 Topps - one of the best football sets of all time!
Not to mention rookie cards for Howie Long, Eric Dickerson, Jackie Slater, and Roger Craig.
Sorry had to take myself down memory lane.....
Thanks for the post. I will be watching.
60 for 60. 30 years from now. Robinson to Barkley.
