The stick definitely sounded toxic that night. Last time I heard it as bad as it had sounded, Maiocco was spot on (during his latest KNBR interview) in comparing it to the horrors of 1977.
I was only 7, and we were facing the Falcons at the Stick in week 5 (pushing an inevitable 0-5 record). It was just brutal that day, fans chanting words that would get half a row kicked out now-a-days...
It was really, really scary getting out of there (as well), my family never went to another game (at the Stick) until 1980 (cause we were all rallying around the local Stanford coach to turn things around).

son I am disappoint.
Yeah but Smith's been the constant for 5 years. Nobody that bad has gotten so many damn opportunities. The fans are finally starting to show their displeasure at the constant sight of mediocrity.

I've been a fan since 1981 and have never heard boos like that before. It was loud and directed at one player. I also have never seen an argument between player coach of that manner since TO and Greg Knapp got into it when they were both here. Vernon and Singletarys exchange wasn't as heated imo. I just think the fan base is fed up with the teams performance. No playoffs since 2002,no SB championship since the 1994 season.
The only reason a change hasn't been made at HC is because there is no one qualified to be an interim HC on this staff (shocker). A change will come atthe end of the season with a new QB and Coaching staff.
