All 4 of the great Lynn Swann's catches in Super Bowl X. Nobody made more from limited opportunities than Swannie. IMO, this is still the greatest Super Bowl Performance by a wide receiver.

Take note of the fantastic blocks by Rocky Bleier on both deep throws. He flips D.D. Lewis on his head on the first one, then sends Cliff Harris head over heels on the second.

This never gets old to me.  Thumbsup Pi_heartbeating

Dave - you are correct. We discussed Terry and his athleticism a few months back. Truly the best athlete ever to play QB for the Steelers. Period. 

We can discuss Mark Malone being a decent second and Ben and Kordell rounding out the top.

Somewhere Kent Graham and Neal O’Donnell are fighting for the bottom slot.

Tim,

Thanks for posting. Swannie was truly Barisnakov in spikes as Myron once said.

Are you sure? It seems to still be working, although there is a copyright claim that says it can't be monetized (and I don't monetize anything anyway). 

Just in case, I've added a direct link to the version on our site so it doesn't matter what YouTube does. I can't embed these videos in threads, but I can link to them.
