Many of us are still haunted by the 1981 NFC Championship game.
Question: What exactly went wrong during the last 49er TD Drive?
> Did Landry have us in the prevent defense too early (allowing the niners to run the ball effectively)?
> Was it a case of players making key mistakes on key plays?
> Should we just give Montana and the 49ers a lot of credit for executing down the stretch (after all SF had moved the ball pretty effectively all day --only the six 49er turnovers kept them from scoring more than they did)?
I recently rewatched that game--I am really proud of the effort the team gave. I really think Dallas played their heart out and fell just short against a really great 49er team. Rumor has it that Montana passed out from exhaustion in the lockeroom after the game.
Thanks for everything. You were a great player to watch through the years.
