Found this on Yahoo answers:

Saints vs Panthers, Oct 7, 2006 -- Saints had a drive that was 24 plays, 93 yards, 10:22 off the clock, and culminating in a blocked 20-yard FG.

Longest in terms of yards (which would be a kick return) or time?

I know Tony Dorsett had a 99 yard run for TD, which by definition has to be the longest offensive drive in terms of yardage.

:lmao: perfect

One time in high school I took my girl friend to a haunted house so that I could punch her in the face in a crowded dark room without her knowing it was me.  --Anon.

 

 Are there masturbation-related charities?

I once drove from Cincinnati to Montana in one day last semester. That's got to be up there.

The longest drive in NCAA history in terms of time and number of plays was a 26 play, 94 yard drive that took 14 minutes and 26 seconds, by Navy against New Mexico in the 2004 Emerald Bowl.
Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.

97% of the time I'm right, so who cares about the other 4%?

culminating in a safety? :lmao:
My favorite FFA quote from my all-time favorite FFA thread:
 

However, once I was handed the ball and saw the opening I ran to daylight. Not because I knew what I was doing, I just loved the sunshine on my face.

 
Trending FFA quotes:
 

I swing the bathroom door open with a flourish and step out sideways into the main room where the hot tub is.  She turns around and sees me and I go to spin 90 degrees and swing the Legend into a head-on attack position when it happens. 
 
As I spin into position (I'm nothing if not a showman) - the cigarette I had lit and had in my mouth hits the door frame, ever so slightly.  Just hard enough to knock the cherry off of it, which falls..............................down...................... I see it............wait..........................oh no..............................
 
*SIZZLE*
 
It lands right on the head of my ####, direct hit.  A laser guided cruise missile couldn't have been more accurate.  It took a split second with the sound of burning flesh in my ears before I kind of half screamed/half yelped in agony and began spinning around in circles in a blind panic.  Just then, my eyes settle on a glass of ice water that my GF had poured herself, so instinctually, I grabbed it and jammed my rapidly deflating column of love into it.  The odd sensation I felt was not that of relief, but of even more intense burning.  That's when I realized I had just ####ed her vodka on the rocks.

Should be updated. The Raiders had an 11:49 minute drive against the Colts on Dec 16, 2007. Link to Drive Chart, look at the Raiders of course:

I know it is not a record, but Illinois closed out their game against OSU with a drive that took up the last 8:30 of the game I think, and they were only to about the 35 of OSU. Easily could have eaten up more clock if needed.
