    Dan Fouts
    The Chargers were heavy favorites in a 1979 divisional playoff game against the Oilers: they had gone 12-4 and were the top seed in the AFC and the Oilers were playing without Earl Campbell and starting QB Dan Pastorini. Fouts threw for 333 yards, but was intercepted five times -- four by Oilers rookie safety Vernon Perry (who also blocked a field-goal attempt).

    Tony Romo
    Unlike Smith, Turk and Junkin -- who never played again after their gaffes -- Romo has a long career ahead of him. Maybe, like Fouts, he'll overcome his moment and become a Hall of Fame quarterback. Or maybe this will go down as his defining NFL moment. Sometimes, history isn't very fair.

    Fuc these people.

    The Oilers were stealing the Chargers signs and no effing way they beat the Bolt with that fuc't up team missing Campbell and Pastorini.

    Those Son of biitches cheated and knew every call we were making.

    I don't think it's cheating. It's being prepared. Coryell should have figured it out and adjusted.

    For all the love he gets, he was not a very good game day coach. Bad clock management too.

    At least Fouts made his mistakes during the course of performing his job as a Quarterback.

    Romo F'ed up a perfectly good snap on a chipshot fieldgoal. He was thinking ahead to the next week and didn't focus.

    Romo should feel terrible. He blew it big time.

    I wasn't living in california at the time.... although I suffered through that game back in ohio at my in-laws, I never heard anything about the oilers stealing signs. What was that?
