Three names stand between 5 and possibly 7 Lombardi Trophies

Do you know the three names? Repeat them after me Haley, Saunders and Watters. If somehow the NINERS were able to retain all three services, there would have been no stopping the greatest football dynasty EVER period! What are your thoughts guys?

Losing Haley alone was the biggest blow to our 3-4 defensive system/knocking Dallas out of the NFC Championship, cause (aside from Bruce Smith) a multi-dimensional pass-rusher that could wreak consistent havoc out of both the OLB and DE spot (within a 3-4) was just unheard of back then.

-So finding an adequate replacement/pass-rusher was just impossible until Ken Norton Jr. fell into our hands in 1994.

And I wouldn't totally say losing Watters/Sanders after 1994 killed us more than the repetitive personnel injuries that seemed to consistently plague the team from 1995-1997 when it came to winning some of the more important regular-season/playoff games.

Washington didn't do anything for us. It wasn't until he went on to Buffalo that he realized his potential.
Preston Riley......................1972 should have been Lombardi # 1.Cowboys went on to win the Super Bowl 24-3 over Miami.
1 name Roger Craig
salary cap

If Jeff Fuller had never been injured
Had the 49ers not had TWO bad pass interference calls in the 1983 NFC Championship game
How about that son of a b*tch Favre

If we wouldve kept Sanders, there's no doubt we wouldve beaten the Packers in 95, and given up some sort of competition in 96. What a lot of us forget is that Sanders in his prime (92-96) would shut down half the field just by being in the vicinity. Not only would QBs defer on the receivers he covered, but they would practically ignore the side of the field he was lined up on.

BAD move by Ninerbrass to let him go after only 1 year.......definitely cost us a ring in 1995, and possibly in 96.
