Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph Anthony Pisarcik (born July 2, 1952, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania) is a former American football quarterback who played in the National Football League for eight seasons, from 1977 through 1984 after playing college football at New Mexico State University. His first professional team was the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, where he played from 1974 to 1976. He began his NFL career with the New York Giants, and is best remembered for his role in a November 19, 1978, game where the Giants, ahead 17-12 with only seconds to play and their opponent out of time-outs, lost after his handoff (a play called by offensive coordinator Bob Gibson over Pisarcik's objections) to Larry Csonka was fumbled and returned for a touchdown by Herman Edwards of the Philadelphia Eagles. The play has since been referred to as "The Fumble" by Giants fans and "The Miracle at the Meadowlands" by Eagles fans.show more
