Who remembers these commercials played during a break in action years back? 

I saw the title of this thread and thought: Please don't apply to me....please don't apply to me.

 

And it doesn't. I don't recall these commercials. I might be old, but I don't recall these commercials. There's also the possibility that I'm SO old, that I just don't remember them. Just kidding. (BTW: I'm a young 41).

They typically played these in the 2nd half of games, during a break in the action.

I remember those, classic. Great stuff. CBS used to play those commercials back in the early 80's.


Yeah, I really enjoyed them as a kid, and became more familiar with players before my time.  TV is horrible now. I couldn’t tell you the last time I’ve watched pregame. It’s been years.

I rarely watch pre-game stuff anymore either. I do for about 10 minutes before the Colts come on but back in the day I used to watch for like an hour.

My era was Dick Enberg, Don Meredith, Frank Gifford, Chris Schenkel, Pat Summerall, and John Madden. 


I soured on Madden over the years, but those guys were exceptional. Don Criqui was my favorite.

Yep..... and a little further back there was Curt Gowdy too.... here's the end of the infamous "Heidi" game with a flurry of scoring that almost no one saw because NBC cut away to show the movie.

It might look vaguely familiar, not sure

 

I didn't really start watching football until the Colt's moved to Indy in 1982, but even then it was just out of curiosity. I didn't get serious about until they showed some semblance of being good in the later 80's.

 

I remember one week the entire Colts defense was named AFC defensive player of the week

 

Great defense & special teams

I went to the french quarter for the first time in New Orleans in 1982 or 1983 when I was a teenager. The random tourist trap stores had tshirts that said where's the beef with an X through the W, and an arrow below pointing down. 

 

I thought it was the most hilarious thing I had ever seen at the time

 

Just goes to show how young, dumb, and full of *EDIT*  I was at the time

On another note I was totally intoxicated by the nature of the french quarter, and I was a kid who grew up seeing the worst of the mayhem that went on at the Indy 500

 

Indy is and was a conservative city. That may have happened at the 500, but certainly NOT the streets of downtown


Check out Youtube videos of the Preakness infield in Baltimore for some real debauchery.

Not sure I've seen the debauchery of the Preakness. But if I described for you what went on at the 500, this forum would ban me. I will just say it was sexual behavior influenced heavily by drugs and alcohol. I was 12 when I was being escorted out of the 1981 race and most of what I saw was drug and alcohol influenced people having sex in the back of vans. I saw this % when I was facking 12!

Peyton Mannings retirement marked the end of anything good in the NFL. 

It obviously all started before that, but once he left, he took any time of old football with him. 

 

Now days, the players are all prima donnas, the league now has an over inflated ego, and the media shows are just sports debates now. Who is the better team who is the better players these are our picks. That's about it. 

 

Theres nothing to see here.

Sadly, I remember all of those.

 

Never watch pre game shows. The "experts," former players, and former coaches don't know what's going to happen in the game any more than I do. Don't watch post game either. I don't need them to tell me what I just saw.

 

The game itself is all that matters. Speaking of the games, kudos to Giants, Redskins, Dolphins and Bengals. Incredibly hard fought, exciting games even though their combined record was 10-46. It's why every game is an event unto itself and worth watching, regardless of your teams record/standing.

I don't think anything will ever top Brady vs Peyton again. I used to live for that week.

I remember ......party phone lines....I went to a school that had the first 3 grades in one room....I saw my first color tv at 11 years old.....my first TV football game was 1970 - Colts/Giants....and on Saturday, my mom would tell my and my brother to get the hell out of the house and she didn't want to see us until dinner.

I remember the Ditto machine. I've sent a Telex in my life, and I remember the miracle of the fax machine.

 

Typewriters. Computers that only sent email.

AOL.. wait, they're still around, aren't they?

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
