TO and Steve killed the Packers and Favre with the "Catch 2", we were on fire and ready for another Superbowl, ring number 6. Hearst breaks his ankle and the game versus Atlanta followed that pattern. The following season in week 3 Steve Young was injured and forced to retire and we went 4-12.
One ankle, one play, years of pain.
you know what i remember most about the falcons game ?
it's not hearst injury although it hurted us big but we were still in the game
No two things hurted us more :
1- our inability to stop their running game
2- when trailing 20-10 in the middle of the fourth we were still huddling. We had a good drive but we lost at least one minute by huddling every time. We should have gone no huddle. That minute would have given us enough time after getting the ball back to score a FG. Instead of starting at our 20 (i think) with 30 sec to go it would have been 1:30 to go
I remember i was enraged looking at the huddles, talking to them trough the TV set "huddle fvkers" i had the feeling we were losing a precious time that would cost us and i was right
It was like mcnabb and the eagles at the SB : their scoring drive late in the 4th qtr. Idiots ....
