Attacks the ball in coverage but long speed isn’t great. Transitional quickness is only OK. Is overly grabby in press man, and his cover technique can get a little sloppy. Brett Favre: The Jets had him as the No. 1 player on their 1991 draft board. Ron Wolf, the assistant Jets GM, loved him, but the Jets didn’t have a first round pick they used it in the supplemental draft in 1990 to take wide receiver Rob Moore.

However, late in the game, that energy had dwindled and turned to fear. The Gophers trailed by one with time rapidly running out in the third period and the feeling that a title was meant to be won in Minnesota was going away.While the crowd may have been panicking, Potulny said the Gophers were not and the emotion on the bench was calm even though the pressure was on.

FOLK’S MISSES: Folk’s missed extra point went wide right after a 15 yard touchdown catch by Decker with 9:38 left in the first half ending a streak of 312 straight made PATs.

An argument could be made that baseball does have a type of sudden death since there is no set number of extra innings teams can play, but at least teams get an equal opportunity to score. This is not the case in the NFL, which can be more about a matter of luck than anything. If you win the toss you could have the only chance to score.
