Some that stand out for me:

-Green's punt return in the playoffs against the Bears. Such a huge play in that game and an amazing individual effort by DG.

-The next week in the NFC Championship against the Vikings where DG broke up the play at the goal line to win the game. To this day I'm not sure if he actually tipped the ball or if it simply deflected off of Darrin Nelson's hands, but either way a very memorable play.

-DG running down Dorsett, or Dickerson, or just about anybody from behind. Whenever an opponent would break free into the open field, my first thought was always "Green will catch him".

-Monk dominating that early drive in the Super Bowl against the Bills, only to have a TD taken away by instant replay. (The right call, his toe was on the line)

-Monk setting the all-time receptions record on MNF against the Broncos and getting mobbed by the team.

-In general, anytime there was a critical 3rd down situation, it always seemed like Monk was there to make the tough catch in traffic.
W/out question the best DG memory for me was against Chicago. Huge play.

Re: Your Art Monk and Darrell Green memories

Worst memory - seeing Monk on the Jets. I still watched and rooted for him, but it was just something unthinkable.

At least it wasn't Philly green I guess.

Watching Green in the annual NFL's Fastest Man contest was a lot of fun.
