    Jimmy Smith caught 15 passes for 291 yards including 3 TD's over 40 yards a peice. His last circus catch put the hated Jags up 36-32 with 1:55 remaining. It looked like we would once again get cheated out of our first ever win over Jacksonville.

    Then Shannon Sharpe caught the winning TD pass from Tony Banks with 48 ticks left on the clock and all hell broke loose. Eye witnesses swear to this day that the upper deck actually shook as the Fans celebrated ecstatically. People were screaming and honking horns on every highway in every direction a full hour after the final whistle. It was the hallmark game of our young franchise.

    It is a shame great players like this find a way to get themselves in trouble more often then could be wished. He'll be 50 when he gets out. I hope he will be successfull with a fresh start after he pays his debt to society.
    Ah the memories. Remember this game like it was yesterday. This was the game we got the monkey off our back. Jags and especially JSmith were a royal pain in the butt.

    According to this article Chuck managed to turn his life around and help others. I don't know if he had a relapse or anything, or if drugs had anything to do with his premature death.

    I really liked this guy when he was with SD. Check out the part about him and Lyle Alzado lol.

    This was my first football game ever, had tickets in the lower corner of the end zone opposite of the tunnels and remember Smith catching that TD pass. I remember that mostly because it was real loud then all of a sudden got silent in the area when he got that TD and then the whole crowd blew up when Sharpe struck.

    Smith caught that last TD off the "tip drill". Can't remember who the DB was who almost intercepted it. Smith jogged into the end zone and my buddy throws down his empty beer cup and says, "they got us AGAIN!!!". But little did we know just a minute later Sharpe would make that catch, and yes indeed the upper deck shook that day. Not sure M&T has ever been louder since.

    IIRC...his brother Nelson Munsey (different name spelling) was a DB for us in the mid/late 1970s he passed away in 2009.

    Shannan's TD was right in front of me. What a play. I was in the club level and you could
    see the opening and you knew it would be a TD.

    Place went nuts, just like the old days with Unitas to Berry or Moore.

    I was in club that day also

    Muncie was one of my FAVS and what a great offense they had in the early 80s. RIP

    Part of me says some are just bad apples and the other part of me says repeated blows to the body/head isn't healthy for your mental state. I think this situation is the former and things like the Titus Young rampage has me at a pause for possibly the latter.

    Jimmy Smith was the man. It was him, Rod Smith, Tim Brown and everybody else.
    "When questioned, the Elders explained that they were in search of magical powers. However, they're actually searching for the whereabouts of a certain ring. This ring is a legendary treasure that long ago was known to exist"
