Poor Everson Walls. He had a fine career, but that's the only highlight we ever see.
That was 30 years ago? Oh my, I don't like that one bit ....
And he played great that day. Two INTS!
But Walls' career isn't marred by that one play. That play was more a result of what Clark did to make the catch rather than what Walls didn't do to prevent it.
Yeah, I remember that day...
Some friends got together and came to watch the game. Three Cowboy fans and one 49'er fan.
Not a good time...
Well I hope the three of you beat the **** out of that little ****er.
No...he was a friend. :
But, he ruined that party!
This anniversary can just slip on by without mention...
i have the game saved and i just watched the catch again. i just seems like yesterday that i happened. i was twelve when i watched the game live. it sucked watching then as it did tonight. also hos i can not wait until you change you sig too. i hate seeing that look of knowing that you wasted your season.
Oh, it's one of those things.
Did you know the 49ers had 6 turnovers in that game? 3 interceptions and 3 losr fumbles and they still won. Also, when you watch the Danny White fumble at the end, it's almost identical to the Tom Brady tuck rule play. Ours was a fumble, bur 20 years later it's an incomplete pass. Strange.
Gil Brandt has it wrong in his memory. It was WR Doug Donley that dropped a pass, but it happened on a third and seven as we were trying to run out the clock prior to the final 49ers drive. Dropping that ball caused us to punt the ball back to Montana. I remember it well because after the game was over I kept thinking about that drop by Donley. That play still ticks me off. we should have won Super Bowl that year. One of my toughest loses ever.
Everson Walls actually had a really good game. he intercepted Montana twice in that game. The last one should have sealed the game but we couldn't run out the clock on offense. Not many corners can say they got two INTs against him in a playoff game.
I do remember Montana had 3 int's but none of them were costly. All it takes is one ill-timed turnover to do you in and White's fumble came at the worst possible time. His fumble was a fumble and wouldn't have been called a tuck had the rule been around at that time. I explained the rule earlier in the thread.
Yeah, I lost. I'm not into trashing my team, players, or coaches and claiming to just be objective.
The whole game replay is on NFLN right now. I won't watch the end, of course, but these old games are still fun to watch just to see how different things were.
Watch the Tom Brady play. He does the exact same thing. He is pulling the ball in to avoid the hit. The rules were changed between our game and that one.
It's really good. One thing I love about these old games is that the line play is so much faster. The interior linemen are way smaller of course (not as fat for one thing) but a lot quicker than what we see today.
Vin Scully and Hank Stram doing the game... So cool.
Tony Hill just caught a long one from Danny and we take the lead.
i cannot imagine how i would have reacted to this loss.
