Irritate you? I thought it a legimate and serious question. Here's a guy basically run out of Houston on a rail, a guy many labeled a bust, a flop, a loser....and another team picks him up, dusts him off, and he winds up in the Pro Bowl, makes a game-tying late-second TD in a Divisional playoff, and scores two big TD's in a Super Bowl victory. And why did that happen? Why did he perform so much better in Baltimore than he did for the Texans?
Was it simply a change of scenery? Was it playing for a coach with a strong background in special teams, who saw something in him Kubiak did not? Was it mentoring by veteran players?
Seriously, how often does a guy get vilified and kicked out of town as a bum, and wind up a Pro Bowler, setting these NFL records in one year?
Longest kickoff return (108, tied)
Longest kickoff return in a Super Bowl (108)
Longest play in a Super Bowl (108)Most all-purpose yards in a Super Bowl (289)
I do not think you have proven me wrong in any way, shape or form. The above speaks for itself.
of the FOUR
stats you're quoting....are the SAME damn play!!!!
You've yet to prove yourself RIGHT. IF one game makes you the greatest player in the history of football Larry Brown of the Dallas Cowboys should be in Canton right now getting fitted for a gold jacket and a ring...OH WAIT...he had one great Superbowl against a MEDIOCRE Steeler QB who threw him three interceptions in less than 5 minutes. Don't start preparing Judas for enshrinement in the Hall of Fame just yet.
