23. All In!

What: Regular season vs. Detroit Lions
Date: 11/19/2000

We never understood why this press conference doesn't get more love than some of the other notable ones out there. After a loss sent his team to 7-4 on the season, Jim Fassel stood up in front of the New York media and basically guaranteed that the Giants would go to the playoffs that season. It was a move that could have turned out terribly. But, lo and behold, they ended up making the playoffs. And they even managed to make a run to the Super Bowl, before succumbing to the Baltimore Ravens. Still, this is one of the best NFL press conferences we've ever seen. Can't it get, like, a spot on one of those Coors Light commercials or something?
