TO was a different player when he made that catch against Green Bay. It wasn't until later that he began his transformation into the guy we see today. I for one am a TO fan mostly because of what he does (or did) on the field. He dropped a lot of passes that day, but he made the one that counted. Green Bay had knocked us out of the playoff's a couple of years in a row and it was sickening. So for the Niners to beat them finally was huge.
So for me, he deserves all the accolades for making "The Catch) II.......
Sorry but I absolutely cannot stand that guy. I liked the performance on the field. But the guy has NO heart. I live by the axiom that you remember where your bread is buttered and that you never throw your coworkers under the bus. Regardless if you like them or not or have issues with them. I had PLENTY of issues with CoWorkers. You don't work in any job and not have SOMETHING. But I never NOT ONCE ratted them out or pointed my finger at them. Though I've had some do it to me.
Steve said that he was very respectful when he first got to the league. Alot like how Bam Bam is now. But I think that was something that his Granmother instilled in him. When she was losing her battle with Alzheimer's he changed virtually overnight. She was basically his Mother from what I can recall of the whole thing.
The antics I could live with. The Outrageousness as well.
But throwing his QB under the bus not once but on 3 separate occasions? Completely uncalled for. An I'm old school about such things. Say something like that about me an I will air it out just high enough to get ya killed. Maybe that's what Garcia did a couple times.
