Used to be a video or picture of him uppercutting a player on the other team in the groin. That's what I'll remember about him as well as the block. I laughed for days.

I still say the Jacksonville miracle play was one of the most memorable plays, even with Carney blowing the PAT

That one as well, and I thought about mentioning it, but the significance of the play pales in comparison with the significance of the three ST plays. Well, maybe its significance doesn't pale in comparison, it's just that the 3 ST plays signified a joyous occasion, while the Jacksonville play will always be associated with the big letdown of the missed PAT.

But you are right, that play is and will be one of the most remembered plays as well
