Madden's passion and excitement for the game was infectious. His legacy will live forever. He helped teach generations about the game of football through all of the media he was involved in.

But Halloween proved to be a nightmare for New England. In Pittsburgh, the Patriots fell to Ben Roethlisberger's Steele…
 
Bill Belichick admitted it was one of the toughest coaching decisions he'd ever had to make. Less than a week before the start of the 2003 season, his New England Patriots released Pro Bowl safety and team captain Lawyer Milloy. It was the kind of move that might ruin most teams.

Jon Gruden was ahead of the curve when it came to coaching football. At 31, he was already an offensive coordinator in the pro ranks. At 34, he became one of the youngest NFL head coaches ever.

The 1972 Miami Dolphins were getting antsy. Their title as the league's only undefeated team was in jeopardy. With just three games left in the 1998 season, the 13-0 Denver Broncos played relentlessly and boasted a Hall of Fame talent in exactly the right spot. At quarterback, 38-year-old John Elway played with the joy of an athlete in the prime of…
 
By 1997, there was little else for John Elway to prove. Entering his 15th NFL season, the Denver quarterback was in third place in most major passing categories, behind only Dan Marino and Fran Tarkenton, and had made the two-minute offense into his own personal playground. But something was missing from Elway's resume: a Super Bowl ring. The Bronc…

Dominance in the NFL starts at the very top. There have been only five NFL dynasties during the Super Bowl era -- four of them were forged by the vision of a single head coach. The 1995 Dallas Cowboys were the exception. They won their third world championship of the 1990s under new leadership in Barry Switzer. Despite being without Jimmy Johnson, …
 
Prior to the 1994 season, quarterback Steve Young had already enjoyed great success in the NFL. A two-time All-Pro with the San Francisco 49ers, Young was considered one of the NFL's most nimble and accurate passers. But Niners fans felt differently about him. In their estimation, Young had a flaw that was difficult to overcome: He wasn't Joe Monta…
 
Talent is a cure-all in the NFL. That's the lesson of the 1993 Dallas Cowboys. That season, the Cowboys were saddled with injuries, a key holdout, and tension between the owner and head coach. But Dallas overcame all those distractions thanks largely to the star power of its roster. For starters, the Dallas "Triplets" were in their primes. Quarterb…
 
In 1992, many pundits felt that the Dallas Cowboys were too young to contend for a Super Bowl title. But head coach Jimmy Johnson and team knew otherwise.

This audio documentary focuses on the team that was defined by a missed 47-yard field goal that kept them from winning the big one in Tampa.

But even knowing the downer ending, the hour special na…
 
When Phil Simms sprained his foot against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15, an unproven Jeff Hostetler was thrust to the forefront. Hostetler exceeded expectations by winning four straight starts, including two playoff games, to reach Super Bowl® XXV. Veteran Otis Anderson, a fill-in for the hobbled Rodney Hampton, rushed for 102 yards as New York beat…
 
What's the best way to replace a coaching legend? Quietly. When Bill Walsh retired from the San Francisco 49ers following the 1988 season, the team opted not to sign a big name as his successor. Instead, the organization stayed in-house, hiring defensive coordinator George Seifert. It was perfect casting. The stoic Seifert promptly led the team to …
 
A world championship was at stake, and the San Francisco 49ers were in a panic. Trailing 16-13 late in Super Bowl XXIII, the offense was 92 yards away from a championship. It was a moment for legends. Bit by bit, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana marched the 49ers the length of the field. His 10-yard scoring strike to John Taylor with 34 ticks l…
 
During the 1987 season, Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs had a lot of explaining to do. He told backup quarterback Doug Williams he was being traded to the Raiders, and then reconsidered just hours later. The coach also demoted Jeff Bostic from starting center to snapper on punts, angering the veteran to the point of demanding a trade. Wors…
