Detroit Lions long-snapper Jimmy Landes is finding unique ways to practice, even while on vacation in Jordan.
As he was touring the city of Petra, Landes found a camel and decided to snap a football under the camel’s legs.
Lions fans will be happy that Landes has football on his mind, even Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys while traveling, after spending his entire rookie year on injured reserve because of a shoulder surgery.
The first of Bill Walsh’s Super Bowl champions didn’t just launch a dynasty; this team revolutionized the game. It wasn’t a loud revolution, but the power running game of prior decades was supplanted by a team that moved the ball with short passes, often to backs. The 49ers backs’ caught a combined 117 passes in 1981; Oakland’s backs got only 80 the prior season. So it didn’t matter that San Francisco didn’t have a back likely to go for 100 yards. It had Joe Montana, and a new approach to the game.
This wasn’t Ben Roethlisberger’s best year; he struggled at times while the Steelers tried to cobble together an inconsistent running game. The defense, however, was a constant. James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley made that 3-4 edge rush hum with a combined 27.5 sacks. Pittsburgh led the league in scoring defense. The Steelers beat San Diego and Baltimore to face upstart Arizona in the Super Bowl, a game crystalized by Harrison’s 100-yard interception return before halftime and Santonio Holmes’ game-winning touchdown catch with 35 seconds remaining. It wasn’t always pretty, but it was good enough to give Pittsburgh its sixth Super Bowl championship.
