And you would be wrong. Aikman was injured, Steve Beuerlein was the starting QB for the Cowboys in that game..

From what I read on Steve Beuerlein on Wikipedia just a bit ago, he indeed started that game but the Cowboys sent Aikman in the game later. I might research that a bit further on other sites. Wiki said simply that Aikman was sent in when "the Lions got too far ahead."

OK then. I do know Aikman was the starting QB for the Cowboys when they thumped the 49ers in the 1992 NFC Championship Game and crushed the 49ers in the 1993 NFC Championship game. (The fact the 49ers got beaten stunk because I strongly dislike the Cowboys and my dislike for them was at its apex in the first half of the 1990s.) I also know the 49ers made a habit of losing playoff games at home from 1990 to 1997 (4 times in 8 seasons, including 3 times in the NFC Championship Game).

Among regular season games I did not attend, the Eagles' 40-8 demolition of the 49ers at Candlestick Park in 1994 ranks pretty high. I remember I was a senior in college in central PA and due to the 1 PM game running long and technical issues with the local Fox station (which was not a station that was required or always televised Eagles games, plus it was Fox's first year of NFL broadcasts) that the broadcast didn't come on right away. By the time it did come on, I think the Eagles were already up 7-0 and were driving for their second touchdown (or may have already been ahead 14-0, I can't remember), which was a pleasant shock for me. That game served as the coming out party for Charlie Garner, who had over 100 yards rushing in that game.

To their credit, the 49ers used that embarrassing loss (and a loss to the Joe Montana-led Kansas City Chiefs earlier in the season) as inspiration for turning their season around and winning Super Bowl XXIX, their only Super Bowl win with Steve Young as the starting QB.

Well, being a Giants fan (do I have to pick one?)...

I would have to say the three Superbowl victories. The first one over Denver since it was the first one. Of course, the one point win over Buffalo, and when I am in a bad mood, or just need a pick me up, I can always pop in the tape of the Giants victory over New England in SB XLII and everything is right with the world

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...wkrgnAThisThis play here, I live on the West Bank of New Orleans, you could hear people screaming and horns, and fireworks and guns and everyone in my neighborhood went running out in the streets and celebrating. Somethan like 1 million people ended up in the French Quarter that nite, it was a instant Mardi Gras

That Tebow comback against the jets has to rate way up there....probably number 2 to the 1985 bears loss to Miami and Dan Marino.
