    I went with the Riggins run on 4th down. That one play all but sealed the first SB trophy for the Redskins.

    A close second is the pass from Doug Williams to Ricky Sanders. Without that play, it could've been a long day for the Redskins. It was the spark that was needed for what we call "The Quarter".

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    It has to be Riggo's run. The game was still in doubt. The play came from nowhere, and without a career-defining stiff arm that no one watching will ever forget, it might have ended differently.

    Awesome moment that I dont think will ever be topped.

    I was lucky enough to attend Super Bowl XVII. Riggo's run not only gave the Skins the lead, it was his career-defining moment and pretty much vaulted him into the HOF.

    Please see my avatar pic.

    Riggo's run that won SB 17 will always be THE signature play for this franchise IMHO. It was our first SB win and we were underdogs and nobody thought we had a chance against the "Killer B's".

    Classic, just classic. Just like Darrell Grant's interception return of a tipped Hogeboom pass for a TD that got us to that SB, I'll never forget seeing Riggo take 70 chip to the house in SB 17 as long as I live.
