Note - Below is a detailed outline of this episode. This is not a word-for-word transcript.
This episode starts off with me telling you one of the greatest NFL rushing seasons of all-time was one of my personal favorite football moments. Barry Sanders had an incredible 2,053 yards back in 1997. The thing that makes this more impressive is he only had 53 yards in his first 2 games of the season. This means he rushed for 2,000 yards in only 14 games.
At this point, the Football History Dude podcast already has 10 episodes. I’ve really been having fun learning about the rich history of the NFL, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as I have. Still, one of my favorite episodes so far has been the listener favorite football moments back in episode 6. It’s awesome to listen to fans of the show share their favorite football moments, which I call “My Football Moment”. You can share your favorite football moment to be played on the air by heading to myfootballmoment.com
This is the 2nd favorite moment episode for listeners of the show. Below are the various listeners that sent in their favorite football moment:
Roy Brady Jr.
He’s a big New England Patriots fan, so of course, we all remember the moment he talks about. The thing I couldn’t get is why didn’t the Seahawks just give Beastmode the ball at the goal line?
Derek is a Rams fan, so he shares a few moments. The one that stuck out for me was Flipper Anderson breaking the Monday Night record. It’s a super cool moment for him, and it reminded me of watching Calvin Johnson – MEGATRON!!!
Jim discusses watching his team, the 49’ers, winning their first Super Bowl. This comes from a clip of Ask The Podcast Coach podcast.
Dave is the host and owner of the School of Podcasting. I want to give Dave a huge thanks for everything he does to help podcasters get going. His moment revolved around the Cardiac Kids from back in the day. The best part is when he said the Cleveland Browns are always hiring douchebags, such as Johnny Manziel.
This guy is the Chairman of the German Titans. It’s a great story of a legit German loving the NFL, gets a chance to go to a game in Tenessee, and even cooler is his personal experience meeting the owner.
I hope you enjoyed this episode of The Football History Dude and were able to get inspired by the unique stories told today by fans of the great game of football. If you would like to have your favorite football moment featured on an upcoming episode, please head to myfootballmoment.com for more details. In the next episode, we’re going back to the beginning again, to finally tell the story of the man that was possibly America’s first worldwide superstar athlete, Mr. Jim Thorpe.
