Listening to all the talk around town, not to mention my own excitement to see this non-Niner epic matchup..............I decided to take a little stroll down memory lane.
Just as the Pats/Indy matchup is justifiably labeled as the "rivalry of the decade", we can all agree that the Niners/Cowboys matchups of the 90s brought just as much excitement and media attention as the Colts/Pats matchups of today do.
I remember how the entire week of Sportscenter was filled with pieces on both teams; how the winner would be fan favorite for Superbowl victor. Even fans that supported other teams would get ready for this epic rivalry.
The last game between the Niners/Cowboys that mattered (both teams being dominant) was in 1997, when the Niners beat Dallas at Candlestick 17-10. Man, I sure do miss the good ole days............
