Janet Jackson

During halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake figured they’d class that whole stuffy affair by showing the world Janet’s right boob. They immediately claimed the incident was the result of a wardrobe malfunction but it was later revealed that the whole thing was planned.

So why is this a FAIL? Because Janet Jackson's boob looked like a re-heated pancake draped over an English muffin. We could've had almost anyone else and this would've been a huge win...

The Carolina Panthers were so distraught that they went on to lose 32 – 29 to the New England Patriots.

The 1972 Dolphins are the NFL’s one and only completely perfect team, having won every single game of that season including the Super Bowl (sorry ’07 Patriots). Their Super Bowl win could have also been a perfect stomping of the Washington Redskins but it was not to be.

With two minutes left in the game, Miami lined up to kick a field goal, botched the attempt and Dolphin kicker Garo Yepremian picked up the ball and attempted a pass. What Garo failed to understand about passing a football, though, is that it’s supposed to go forward, not backward and consequently he made the worst looking pass in the history of the game. It was still completed, but TO THE WRONG TEAM.

The Redskin’s Mike Bass caught the dead fish and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown.

Denver Broncos


Can you declare an entire game a blunder? I’m sure Denver fans did after their team lost Super Bowl XXIV to the San Francisco 49ers 55 – 10 and suffering the worst Super Bowl loss in history. To add insult to injury, it was John Elway’s third Super Bowl loss during which he completed just 10 of 26 passes for a meager 108 yards, was intercepted twice and fumbled twice.

Years later he would redeem himself by beating the Falcons in the Super Bowl. Some claim Elway actually won two Super Bowls back to back when he defeated the Green Bay Packers the year before. As a Packer fan, however, this writer cannot back the validity of that statement.
Barret Robbins is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list The Top 10 Super Bowl FAILS of All Time

The Super Bowl is a big game and some people just can’t handle the pressure. People like Raiders’center Barrett Robbins in Super Bowl XXXVII.

Two days before the game, Robins apparently woke up in the middle of the night in a manic depressive state, booked it down to Tijuana and was found in a dive bar, chugging tequila.

He then spent the Super Bowl in the mental ward while his teammates were blown out by the Bucs. Hard.
