As far as I'm concerned, Bubba Paris is to Joe Montana what Lawrence Phillips is to Steve Young. If I remember correctly, in the 1991 NFC championship game, Paris allowed the Giants Marshall to sack Montana, knocking him out of the game, ruining the 49ers chance for a 3-peat, and effectively ending Montana's career as a Niner. Furthermore, Paris was criticized for being overweight and out of shape that year.
Nobody's going to tell me that Joe wouldn't have pulled a win out of that game with 9 minutes left in the 4th if he'd been able to finish. Ya, Bubba Paris, there's a guy I'd really like to meet.
