    Great play, but I would have rather seen this team in the playoffs last year.

    That way this play would hold more meaning to me.

      oo...fancy quotes..my point wasnt him saying what he thought, but how he said it with a subtle personal attack.

      I need to find a quote about how lame it is to use quotes. Thatd be pretty ironic...

        Like classical music truly a beautiful sound.

        I'm older now and don't get all crazy when something cool happens but this play made me jump outta my seat screaming wooooohoooooooooo!
        Think he says 'Oh Caught'? I always think he says 'Oh God' like someone just shot him.

              wait Gus is in Madden?

              If so I definetly will not be purchasing it (have not had it for like 8 years) I can't freaking stand Gus Johnson and he way over the top horrible sports casting.

                it was amazing, and when I do watch it I end up watching it an extra 10 times..but missing out on the playoffs really put a damper on the play. Like 'oh yea that was great...but it was still kind of pointless in the big picture'.
                not sure what in the hell missing the playoffs has to do with that play....so I guess at the end of the season your thought was....well we missed the playoffs.....I wish that play would have never even happened...lol.....a play to help the broncos win is def. not pointless.......playoffs or not....

                I was at the game.....and the silence of the crowd was amazing.....esp. when the bengals had scored to take the lead moments before.....
                My 3 favorite teams:
                1.The Denver Broncos
                2.The Ohio State Buckeyes
                3.Any team who plays Michigan

                  That was such a amazing play I remember it perfectly I was so shocked and happy when that happened. The play of the year for us and I love hearing Gus Johnson voice when he gets excited..

                    I used to enjoy Gus on rare occasions....then madden 11 came out... I never thought they'd find someone more annoying than collinsworth to call the game (then again I never thought they'd find someone more annoying than madden and they pulled that off)

                      yea it's horrible....You'll have a pretty mediocre play and he'll be screaming with excitement.

                        Playoffs or not that play was great and the call by Gus Johnson was just as good. He's so excitable that I always wondered what he looked like so I could put a face to the voice. Thanks to the OP's link that is now possible. Every time I play the new Madden I think of this play.

                          That thing still gives me chills everytime I see it. Thats one call(next to Mike Lange calling the Pens Stanley Cup win in 09) I will NEVER forget!

                              So wait... you haven't bought Madden in 8 years... but now this is holding you back?

                              I'm sure EA immediately regrets their decision.
                              Thanks, Reid!

                                Edit: I still refuse to say this play was 100% luck... I've had people say it bounced off Leon Halls helmet... if this were the case I wouldn't argue it being all luck or not lol.
