Farvraa's throw, took me back to the '98, 96 yd TD run

As quickly as Brett ripped my heart out of my chest Sunday, I immediately remembered how we ripped the heart from the Jets that beautiful day in SF. Take a look at the blocking by #81. Amazing that this was 1998! Damn, I am getting old lol

Enjoy


Not to be a debbie downer, but I never can quite understand why everyone loves this play. Yeah, it's incredible for what it is, but it was against the Jets. When we went into OT, I was so angry we had let the game go on for as long as we did. I wanted to destroy the fudge packers once and for all, but I had doubts we could do it after this one. Of course I was wrong though.

Yeah it was against the Jets, a team that went 12-4 that year
I have a special place in my heart for Dave Fiore because of that play. Our freaking LEFT GUARD ran 75 yards downfield on a run to the right hand side. And I've always been a big TO fan, and this play is a good example why.

Like I said, if it wasn't the packers, they weren't worth it.
This reminded me of John Taylor's two 90+ yard TDs in a HUGE comeback on Monday night against the Rams. I was at this game down in Anaheim as a 9 year old. I vividly remember feeling really bummed out because I thought we were gonna lose, and I had been to about 10 Niner games and they were all victories. Then we mounted a huge comeback, courtesy of a guy who is IMO the most underrated player of all time. Watch the GOAT on these plays as well.

Such a f**king awesome block by Rice down field. I LOVE watching WR's run stride for stride to assist their teammate into the end zone.

Yeah, that's part of what made him such an incredible player. He was a GREAT blocker. So was Taylor. I know JT will never get into the HOF, but I know that if he didn't have to share the ball with GOAT, Craig, Brent Jones, Rathman, etc, he'd be able to make a much better case. If he was on a "normal" team, he would have been a perennial All-Pro. That dude was amazing.
It took me to back to the catch two with TO when we did the exact thing to him in the playoffs.
I have that 49ersRams game on DVD and its awesome.

Pause it at 20 seconds and enjoy.

That was the first play I thought of after reading the OP.

I thought of "The Catch II" from Young to T.O. in the playoffs against GB...the one time the 49ers beat Favre in the playoffs.
