Yesterday it was TOWELS CARRY EBOLA.
Today? Tony Boselli punking Jason Taylor on Monday Night Football back in 1998.
October 12, 1998
Coming into the Week 5 nationally televised matchup, Taylor was a rising star in just his sophomore season. He had amassed 5.0 sacks in just four games — with two multi-sack games to his credit already.
And then he met Boselli.
It was like watching a street fight for 60 minutes with both trash talking throughout the game with Boselli claiming after the game that Taylor tried to trip him or kick his ankles after a play was over.
But it was this quote from Boselli in the immediate post game that summed up the night best:
“If you want to talk trash between the whistles, fine. I play a lot of guys who talk. But I’ve never played a guy who talks so much trash without making a play.”
Zero sacks for Taylor on the night and a fifth straight win to begin the season for the 1998 Jaguars.
You can read about the fight between Taylor and Boselli here in all its retro, late-90’s newspaper glory here.
Send us your favorite moments and we’ll dig into each one until the Jaguars kick off on September 8th — including whatever video, audio, or stories we can find.
