Re: Bill Walsh died

I hated those teams too. As much as I have ever hated any team. But they played offense with grace and elan. X's and O's are one thing, but those teams were also well prepared and extremely disciplined with their fundamentals. The 88 and 89 team (inherited by Seifert) were as dominant as I have seen. 87 too, for that matter. We dodged a bullet when Minnesota upset them in S.F. RIP.

Re: Bill Walsh died

Our Skins were just as dominant, with the exception that we played in a tougher division (Giants 2 SB) and had no QB. I recall the playoff game in 1992 at Candlestick in the mud, to me this was Joe Gibbs best coaching year ever despite losing to the 49ers. What he did with that team with so many starters missing and giving the 49ers a scare was of legend. That year the Skins had so many injuries, that 3rd stringers were starting Brian Mitchell was unstoppable and awesome at Candlestick. We lost because Ripyen couldn't deliver the ball to Gary Clark in the end zone inside the 5 yard line of the 49ers. It broke my heart after the ball was intercepted to seal the whiners victory. It pisses me off when I hear how dominant the 49ers were when the Skins were just as good. I hate the Whiners!!!!!!!!!

Wow. Didn't realize that. Wonder what that game was like. Didn't we manage to avoid them in the playoffs during the '91 season too?

Man, you're not kidding about the division differences. We had to deal with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants, while the Niners were blessed with the likes of the Saints, Rams, and Falcons. Actually, the Rams were pretty good with Jim Everett, but San Fran always had their number.

Well ... okay, we had some gimmes against the Cardinals too.

And I remember that playoff game in '92 -- just heartbreaking. It was the only good drive of the game, we had them on their heels, and Mitchell was on a roll. Then ... the fumble. Ugh. You may be thinking of the 1990 season in Candlestick -- Rypien guided the offense to something like 4 or 5 possessions inside the 49er 10-yard line, and threw 4 INTs.

The problem was that in our rough division we didn't get home advantage like the Niners did in their easy division all the time. If you read my thread on why Art Monk should be in the HOF you'll see why Jerry Rice had such big stats. Rice basically owned the Saints, Falcons and Rams (more than half his stats against those 3 teams).

San Fransisco was dominant in the regular season. Everyone assumed that they would win the NFC. Minnesota beating them was as big a playoff upset as you will see.

NFL playoffs, 1987-88 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My great grandfather died at 59, my grandfather died at 50, and my biological father is 62 and one foot in the grave. 75 will be great!

Re: Bill Walsh died

Wow! Truly one of the most legendary coaches of all time. RIP Bill Walsh! I hated the 49ers because they were so dominate in the 80's, but I respected Bill Walsh a great deal. I knew he had Cancer. 75 is too young to die as far as I'm concerned.

I agree about Walsh and the niners.

75 is 3 years above the average age for a male. Given what he accomplished, I say he had a great life.

Agreed! Man! Cancer has taken so many wonderful people in this world. I'm holding out hope that one day, there will be cure!

I think I just heard one of the most stupid comments ever on Warpath. Joe Montana overrated? 4 Super Bowls? You have gotta be kidding me.
