    2000 wildcard game(Lamar's career game) against Colts on NFL network @9p

    For those that have the NFL network, they're showing our 2000 wildcard game against the Colts. One of my all time favorite 'Phins games. I was yelling/screaming so loud when Lamar broke loose for the game winning TD in OT. Whoever doesn't have NFL network, you need to get it. It's on my TV in my Dolphins room 24/7 and they improve it everyday.

    Jay Fielder fans? Please take notes. How many INTs? How many dropped INTs by defenders? Who carried the team to victory?

    This was not just a great playoff game, it is educational material. :cool:

    Too bad Fiedler had one of his worst performances that game because we simply wore Lamar out that game causing him to be ineffective the following game vs Oakland.

    If you did a little research, you'd see that for the last 7 years we've been ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in attendance. :rolleyes:

    I think that there was a threat of the game being blacked out but it wasn't. Some big business always buys tickets at the last minute.

    The game was blacked out...Im sure of it....

    Why do I remember? Cause back in 2001 I still lived with the parentals, that found out I was doing the ultimate sin, staying up late talking online to make travel arrangements to go to the game, and I was grounded from going, and the sad thing was, I WAS FREAKIN 17!!!!

    I LOVE COLLEGE :)

    I Loved that game. I live in PA - couldn't get out of work it was a early sat. play off game. We had almost a foot of snow and the dope who was suposed to releive me was over an hour late getting to work. I was brushing off my jeep knee deep in snow when the winning f,g, was kicked and I broke out into a --- GOAL ........... ala soccer stlye.-still don't know why. I ran around for about a minute untill I became self concious, then kept running.

    Uh, are you thinking of the same game? The one where Lamar Smith ran it fourty plus time and broke the last one to take it into the end zone in OT? The only FG that mattered was the one Vanderjagt (sp?) missed in OT.

    I still remember the postgame interview where Lamar Smith pointed out how Jay Fiedler's heart and desire to win had carried the team to victory, despite all the INTs and bad throws he had made.

    Oh, wait -THAT NEVER HAPPENED! My bad. :D

    That game gave me a great off season reminder of how much Fiedler sucks! He got picked three times and it should have been five. The balls kept sailing on him in his own stadium. It's one thing if you're in enemy territory and you're not used to the climate and wind. It's simply proof that you're inept when it happens in your own stadium. I don't care how many passes he connected with (I'm surprised Mcduffie didn't dislocate his arm streching out for that one pass) when he finally got his rythum. By all rights we should have lost that game. Thank god for Lamar. I do not percieve that win as a Fiedler victory. Instead we won the game in spite off him.

    I remember that game, i was there. When indy went for the field goal in ot we all started walking out thinking the game was most definitely over. then the dumbass missed the kick and sat down thnking god we were still alive. then after lamar broke the td the staduim broke into so much excitement it will be a game i'll never forget, even more than the atlanta game a couple years ago where vick almost led them to a comeback victory if it wasn't for the 4 and goal stop(another great one to go too)

    I listened to this one on the radio. That was my junior year of high school, and we had Saturday basketball practice, so I had to listen on my walkman during water breaks. Fortunately the overtime extended the game long enough for me to get home and watch the end :)
