    That was a nasty game for the Oilers. 34-5 if I remember correctly.

    I love Olsen's comments about how, despite playing against Jim Brown, he'd never seen anyone with as much power and strength as Earl.

    I wish the person who had done this had put it up on Stage6 as one DivX file instead of a billion little Flash files. Still it's interesting to see this again. Not "good" to see it again but definitely interesting.

    Is that why the video sucked so bad?? I thought maybe he was having trouble with his rabbit ears when he recorded it on his BetaMax machine.

    I'm sure a lot of what you saw was just old tape tracking badly. That was mostly what was wrong with it. I was just saying that it would have been cool to have the entire game in one file. I'd copy it to my Apple TV and watch it all the way through again. I was a kid back then and today I think I'd understand what I was seeing much better. At the time I just didn't know why Earl wasn't running all over the Steelers like he did everybody else week in and week out.
