TO Week Flashback:
Barry Switzer, American Dumbass

Look, we at KSK don't really like TO. No, really. But the handle for previewing this Cowboys-Eagles game as "TO Week" is just so damn catchy, I feel compelled to refer to every previous renewal of this rivalry as "TO Week." Know what I mean? No? Fuck it then.

So this is the 1995 game in Philly when the Cowboys, defending two-time Super Bowl Champs, came into The Vet in week 15. The Eagles had sucked a fine cock the previous year (starting 7-2 and losing out to finish 7-9) and were looking to lock up a playoff spot and a big divsion win.

This clip is the notorious 4th-and-a-foot debacle, and it's a fine example of what happens when you're used to coaching a Super Bowl team by, essentially, not coaching. But it may not help if you allegedly were hired solely based on the quality of fellatio you could provide to your owner/general manager/control freak boss.




LOOK, DREW! THERE'S MAMULA!

AND THERE HE IS AGAIN!

Pat Summerall AND John Madden sounded at least semi-coherent in that video.

That was great...same goddamn play...

Isn't that the guy from the dancing show on ABC?

How did the Steelers lose to Switzer in the Super Bowl? Oh, right...Neil O'Donnell. I may have been 8 when the Steelers lost that game, but I was still really happy when Neil O'Donnell sucked with the Jets after he left Pittsburgh.

Haha, I completely forgot they went for it twice.

And Summerall/Madden were a good team back then, don't you think?

Also, Cowboys, 2-time defending champs? Didn't the 49ers win in '94?

Wow. And all this time I thought playmakers made plays.

Who can understand this video without a superimposed First Down line?! Oh right, EVERYONE.

Barry Switzer, those bad Cowboys jerseys, Ed Hochuli wearing long sleeves, this clip is so depressing.

What was Barry Switzer thinking? He was thinking I shouldn't have called that play.

Back in the old days, Madden was pretty good.

Barry Switzer, one of two coaches to win NCAA title and Super Bowl. Greatest coach ever, or just very good coach?

As someone who dressed up as Ed Hochuli for Halloween, kaniff, I can tell you that's Ed Hochuli. The long-winded explanation and #85 are the proof. Yes, I'm pathetic.

Wow, I thought Mamula was some sort of mythical creature.
