3. A Bad Time for a Case of the Dropsies

Super Bowl: XIII (1979)
Final Score: Steelers 35, Cowboys 31
Date: 1/21/1979

The excuses are plentiful for Jackie Smith. He was 38 years old. He was only used as a blocking tight end and in goal line situations all season long. He hadn't caught a pass all season long either. But in the third quarter, with the 'Boys down 21-14, Dallas QB Roger Staubach hit Smith in the numbers and he dropped it. Big time failures, make big time fails, in big time games.
