John Mara still has nightmares about 'The Fumble'

Readers who listened carefully to the recent post linking to video of "The Fumble" in 1978 noted that someone named "John Mara" was credited as a spotter.

Sure enough, it was THAT John Mara, as Glauber tells us here.

Also in honor of the play's 30th anniversary Wednesday, my fellow former Newsday Giants beat writer John Jeansonne, who covered the game, recalls it here.

By the way, it's not called "The Fumble" in Philly. It's called the "Miracle at the Meadowlands" there.
