PLEASE PICK ONLY ONE PLAY!!!!!!
I'd have to go with that play as well. My hatred of the Cowboys is how I became a 49er fan. To have the game start out like that on our 3rd attempt against them was just surreal.
Here's two old-timers for the defense: If you were there, you surely will rtemember them. Dan Bunz goal-line tackle of Charles Alexander in Super Bowl 16. Keena Tuner absolutely blowing-up Ottis Anderson on a swing pass, was also memorable, and symbolic of the Niner mystique.
And Turner wasn't known to be a big hitter but destroyed OJ Anderson on that play.
Montana's first game back from injury in '92 - against the Lions I believe - he comes in the second half, first drive, leads the 49ers all the way down the field and throws a touch down pass. I remember him walking off the field after the scoring drive and Young gives him this sheepish high five. The stadium was insane, his teammates seriously looked like they were in awe.
I know Steve Young is one of the greatest players in NFL history, but watching the 49ers lose the '92 championship game to Dallas with the greatest big game QB on the bench ... it still bothers me to this day.
SuperBowl 29, 3rd play of the first drive Steve Young 44 yd td pass to Rice, that was so awesome. That whole game is full of all of my favorite plays. And of course the td pass to Owens to beat the Packers!
Grbac ¿Sp? To Rice against the cowboys.. Was like the 2nd or 3rd play in that game and Jerry was.able to take it all the way.. I loved that cause it was at Cowboys stadium and they where talking tons of s**t before hand. Was great to show them who the better team was
