    Homer on 540AM was calling it the "New 4th-26" as well. I don't think it erases the bitterness of 4th and 26 as that was a playoff game in a play that Mitchell's knee was down before the 1st down marker. This was in a semi-meaningless regular season game.

    Regular season game don't count for the disappointment in a playoff game.

    4th and 26 is n/k/a "something else". Kinda like if you call a recession a "daffodil" it's somewhat more tolerable...ya know? :)

    It scarred me for many years.
    It was finally somewhat erased when the Gunslinger threw away the Super Bowl in the 2007 season.

    Hey weeds, do you read Vonnegut? Welcome to our artificial extended family. Daffodil? I'm a Daffodil-14?
    This 4th and 26 would avenge the other if it was in a playoff game. Else? No. Surprised the heck out of me though.

    New guy here. Yep, I noticed that right away...posted a "4th and 26" dissertation on my Facebook, which was pretty much ignored. Glad to see it posted here.
