+1 was my most recent and greatest moment as a 20 year old Niner Fan
I agree, but I also knew there was no way we had a shot at beating the Bucs after that game. Kind of a buzz killer.
Oh contrare. Actually, a lot of analysts thought we had a pretty good shot at the Bucs and their cover 2, since we executed the WCO so perfectly. Of course, things turned out to be much different; that Bucs defense was too much to handle on any given day; unfortunately, Jim Mora Jr. always played a lackadaisical style of defense.....he refused to blitz Johnson, and in the process.....we got torched that day.
The '98 WC game is my all time favorite. I shut the TV off after the packers scored, but I forced myself to turn it back on in case of a miracle. I was so SICK of losing to these guys, even more so than the losses against the cowboys. It also really ticked me off how there were so many bandwaggon packer fans in the bay area, and I hated how so many of them rooted for the packers to beat the patriots in the SB. After the niners scored I was jumping and screaming like crazy.

Total manhandling of the Chargers. I was really happy to see him finally win the big one and get "The Monkey" off his back.
that's my numero uno niner moment. i was born in 91 so i don't remember much besides the late young years and the t.o. era
Yeah man this is my favorite 49er moment ever...i was born in 90 so i can only watch dvd's of the glory days.....
I was at this game which makes it even more special..gay ass 49er fans were leaving in the 3rd quarter, so we moved up close and sat on the 20 yard line and got to watch that whole last drive for the TD...and before the NY field goal attempt, Candlestick was as loud as i ever heard it...so loud you couldnt hear the person right next to you.....It was a great game

Actually Bad thing for us for the '86 game vs the skins, GB playoff game where stokes got pushed out and it was a no call, also versus gb our lb forced a fumble and returned it and it was ruled incomplete......so that call only spotted us 1 Call back
