I found this insert interesting from the book "The Games That Changed the Game" by Ron Jaworski. In it he is talking about the 1981-82 season divisional game against the Giants, the one before "The Catch", where L.T. was defensive rookie of the year.
"Walsh realized that L.T. could not be blocked with tight ends or backs, and left tackle Dan Audick didn't match up well physically with Taylor. So Bill turned to left guard John Ayers to stop the rookie linebacker. Ayers was instructed by line coach Bobb Mckittrick to "Molly" block, a technique that asked the guard to pull, or pop up from his interior line position to ward off an outside pass rusher."
There are 2 ex-49 Super Bowl Champions returning to Candlestick park this Sunday with the Browns. Mike Wilson and Dwaine Board are assistant coaches with Cleveland.<br />
Upon further research I also saw that Jeff Ulbrich and Ken Norton Jr are coaches for the Seahawks and Ray brown with the Panthers. Anyone else know if any others? Bryant Young is with the Gators
Edit:Found a few more:
Ron Heller - Jaguars
Matt Cavanaugh - Jets
Howard Mudd - Eagles
Todd Bowles - Dolphins

Kevin greene who played a yr with us and accumilated 10.5 sacks is clay matthews linebacker coach. Rodwoodson who played a yr with us is secondary coach with the raiders. Steve young has the highest qb rating for career of any qb. But kurt warner has 1% higher completion percentage better then steve young

Jerry Rice's record 208 TD's were scored on 197 passes, 10 rushes, and 1 fumble recovery in the end zone.

ironically, Rice scored TD's from each distances of 0-48 yds at least once in his career, but never scored a 49 yd TD.
The Million Dollar Backfield consisted of: Y.A. Tittle, John Henry Johnson, Joe Perry and Hugh McElhenny. All 4 players are members of the Hall of Fame.
The "Alphabet Backfield" consisted of Y.A.Tittle, C.R. Roberts, J.D. Smith and R.C. Owens. They received this nickname because they were known by their initials and not their first names. Together they brought together the famous Alley-Oop passes and shotgun offense.
