    When I saw this post, I knew the Jags had to have been on this top list with Denver...

    Not too bad for the Jags to make one of the greatest upsets in their second year.

    Houston has a lot of history though... I'll keep my eyes open for the Texans to get a playoff upset.

    I still love that Vikings win over the 69ers. That is one of my favorite playoff memories.

    Atlanta beating the Vikings in the '99 playoff game.

    Arizona Cardinals beating the Cowboys in '97.

    Thanks for the link, Vinny...That was a good read...

    Brunell was the man back before all the injuries...He was definitely my favorite player of the late '90s...

    I still cry at the thought of that game. The Vikings were my adopted team while Houston had none. I even went out and got a John Randle jersey. Friggin' Gary Anderson waited until the worst moment to miss his first FG of the year.

    Vikings/Broncos would have been so much more entertaining than Falcons/Broncos ended up.

    There were alot of people at my high school who wanted the Vikes to win. My math teacher was from Minnesota. Plus, there was this guy named Moss. If you score a touchdown in the south, it means you got "mossed".

    Brunell was similar to Steve Young before he lost his mobility.

    Brunell's prime didn't last very long. He seemed to be great for about 5 years. He is a shell of that man now.

    That's why you'll never catch me making any "Fire Palmer" threads or talking down on him...He knows what he's doing, but we don't have the personnel to allow him to get to incredibly creative...Upgrade the O-Line, and people will be saying Palmer deserves Assisstant Coach of the Year honors...

    It's a shame...Injuries killed his career...He had the makings to be one of the greats...

    Brunell was amazing. I still love the guy regardless. He was an amazing player and was outstanding for the Jaguars. With Tony Bosselli, the two of them were a great pair. I still love that 63-7? victory over Miami for Jacksonville in the Playoffs. Pure domination.

    I think it was 28-0 before Marino completed a pass in that game.

    Man, I loved it. It was amazing. I also believe that game is in the record books for the biggest margin of victory in the Playoffs.
