After breaking my heart in the early 70s, 1981. They were not supposed to be very good. They had Montana and Lott, but also a lot of mediocre players. Walsh and that team had some special magic. Lenvil Ellott running for tough yards in the final minutes of the NFC Championship was the stuff of legend...then there was "the catch." I was in South Texas among Cowpoke fans and I was indeed happy and smug.

I grew up in the Montana era (so I'm very Montana/Walsh biased), but I'd give anything to go back to 1994!
