Nice post - people think we've got cover problems now, that secondary was BAD. Man I miss that offense, though...

We weren't that bad, 11th in pass Defense that year, the next year (97) we were #2, and the top defense overall. 1998, though, that's when the defense started declining fast.

That 97 team wasn't that great in my opinion. Critics would point out our crappy division (we were undefeated that year in our division) and a schedule full of very weak opponents. When we did play good opponents, we usually lost that season. The spanking we received by the Packers at Candlestick in the NFC championship was painful. Rod Woodson wasn't that great for us either that year.
