What is your earliest NFL memory?

143 posts in this topic

Thinking back, what is the earliest memory you have of the NFL, and as a secondary question, what is the first Super Bowl you can recall seeing?

My earliest memory is of OJ Simpson breaking the 2,000 yard mark in 1973. The earliest Super Bowl I can recall is Super Bowl XII, in 1978 (1977 season).

First memory - going to my first game in 65'. I don't remember the score but I do remember that we got whipped by the Browns pretty good.

First SB - the first one Jets/Colts. I watched the two previous games on TV but they weren't called SBs at the time.

Jets/ Colts game, My dad was about to kill me and my brother. He wanted the Colts to win, but the Jets were having no part of that.

Jets and Joe win the game.

in the early 70's, the eagles used to use high school bands at halftime. my dad was the bus driver for the plymouth

whitemarsh band for one of the games and he took me with him. somehow the bus driver used to get a field pass and i

remember watching the eagles and 49ers at the vet from the sideline near the endzone when i was around 10 years old.

gene washington made a nice diving catch in front of us. he was famous for those back then...

I would have to say a game between the Chiefs & Raiders , just a guess but I would say 1974, then after that was Steelers games (My dads team), then Sunday pre- game shows with Brent, Irv , the Greek and some hot woman (forget her name?).

First SB would be the Vikings vs. the Raiders

I remember all the hoopla around the Giants/Colts OT game as a kid...in 1958. Of course our Eagles in 1960. Whenever the Eagles played the Browns with Jim Brown. The day Sonny Jurgensen was traded...terrible. All of the SB's. Mercy...time has moved on.

First superbowl was Bills/Giants and Norwoods missed FG.

Eagles memory was stopping Emmitt 4th and 1 twice or little ole Mark Mcmillian and how he played for how small he was. I should have memories from when I was younger (born in 1980) but for some reason that's as far back as my brain lets me.

First football memory that I can clearly recall was the Super Bowl with the Giants and Bills.

I was like 10 years old at the time, and remembered betting my brother $100 that the Giants would win. He still to this day hasn't paid up haha. Still to this day I hound him to pay up (joking of coarse... his a** won't pay up lol)

Before I got into football back in 1992, I would usually only watch the Super Bowl. The earliest memories that comes to mind both come from the 87 season. My folks took me and my sister to an Eagles game against Miami, and I remember watching the Super Bowl that year when Denver set an NFL record for fastest score in a Super Bowl, but then got demolished by the Redskins.

Because I didn't start watching football until 2001-2002 because I didn't really like it when I was younger, my earliest memory is the '98 NFC Championship. I was only 13 and didn't understand the game but I remember I was watching it. Then watched the Super Bowl, was sad we lost, then watched the first ever episode of Family Guy right after that.

I just re-watched that game this past summer.

Reggie White had 21 sacks in 12 games that year. He also had a 70 yard TD from a strip of Doug Williams against the Redskins.

I can't remember the year, but my first NFL memory was kinda watching a Colt's game in old Memorial Stadium while decorating the Christmas tree with my parents. I remember Bert Jones playing QB. Was Lydell Mitchell the RB?? For some reason his name is in my memory too.

First SB memory was Dallas/Pittsburgh, SB13. I remember my Mom letting me stay up and watch it, as my Dad was at work. LOL that alot of my early football memories are just like that, with my Mom sitting there watching games with me because my Dad was always at work.

Danny White breaking his hand vs the Skins in the NFC title game in 1982 and crying like a bish on the sideline, a fact my stepdad (who is a skins fan) still won't STFU about.

What about the time I prematurely busted a nut in your face while we were watching the Icky Shuffle back in 88 and I called what I did to you the "Sticky truffle"?? That was pretty memorable, no?

I was at that game, my brothers and I got tickets to the Divisional round game and then went back to the stadium later that evening to wait in line all night for tickets to the NFC Championship game. A guy that was sitting right behind us looked just like Danny White in fact.

One of my brothers got that game on DVD a couple of years ago and sent me a copy.

oh yeah, I remember that! I wore that Jim Burt jersey and you couldn't hold back, But they said earliest memory, not best, otherwise i'd have definitely said that
