Something I learned tonight, which many 49er fans probably already know about.
The San Francisco 49ers were the team that whooped Jim Mora's Colts 40-21 in 2001... and were directly responsible for the coach's post-game "Playoffs?!?!" rant.
49ERS 40, COLTS 21
T.O. had 100 yards, Hearst had 100 yards, and Garcia threw for 179. Peyton Manning threw 4 INT'S.
Only current Niner still on the team back then? Jeff Ulbrich.
I am 8 years late to this party, but I didn't know until tonight that SF was the team responsible for the ass kicking. Figured I'd share for the others who may have missed it.
