Introducing 2004 NFL Season

I will be replaying the 2004 NFL season. The New England Patriots repeated as Super Bowl champions with arguably their best defense of their early 2000 dynasty and a running game powered by Corey Dillon. Will Peyton Manning throw 49 touchdowns to surpass Dan Marino’s record? Will three different Colt’s receivers eclipse 1,000 yards? Can rookie Ben Roethlisberger guide the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 15-1-0 record? Will the 2004 version of the Steel Curtain hold opponent’s to 81.2 yards rushing per game?

As for my beloved New York Jets, it was a season of joy and heartbreak. The joy was witnessing Curtis Martin win the NFL Rushing Crown as the oldest running back in NFL history. The joy was having a 10-win season, backing into the postseason, and then upsetting the 14-2-0 San Diego Chargers. The heartbreak was seeing Chad Pennington’s rotator cuff get torn in Orchard Park and Doug Brien’s missed 43-yard field goal with 0:04 remaining at Heinz Field in the AFC Divisional Round.

I would like to invite each one of you to join me reliving this fine season from the opening Thursday Night game when the Indianapolis Colts travel to Foxboro to take on Super Bowl Champion, New England Patriots to Super Bowl XXXIX! In closing, a special thanks to my dear friend and APBA Hall of Famer, Greg Wells, for loaning me his set to replay this season.
