That has more to do with Notre Dame sucking hard of late than anything else.

Montana was a domer for the first 4 and Watters was in the 5th. Also of course, BY.
ND does have and has had very good players the team just doesn't win

Glad we are not the San Francisco 48ers.

The 48ers were actual people who were considered "Locals" or "Near Locals" as they were able to start looking for gold in '48 before news traveled east and majority of the people joined the rush in 1849.

Yes. I'm not saying they don't have good players. I'm saying the odds are different now because far fewer of them are making NFL rosters because the team is no longer the powerhouse it once was. ND used to have a player go in the first round of almost every draft. That is no longer the case. There are simply fewer NFL calibre players coming from ND so the chances of having one as a starter are far smaller than they used to be.

This is my favorite thread no doubt.
During the Manhattan Project, plutonium was also often referred to, simply, as "49". Number 4 was for the last digit in 94 (atomic number of plutonium) and 9 for the last digit in Pu-239, the weapon-grade fissile isotope used in nuclear bombs.

Someone better tell that to ESPN...

Daunting all-time Niner Super Bowl QB Stats

Whoever is the starting QB when the Niners make their next Super Bowl should hide in a hole for the two week before the game. Just imagine all the talk of the Niner's perfect 5-0 Super Bowl record led by near perfect quarterback performances. Just take a look at these auspicious stats…

- Pass completions/attempts: 107/158 (Ave: 21.4/31.6)
- Completions: 68%
- Total yards: 1,465 (Ave: 293)
- Touchdowns: 17 (Ave: 3.4)
- Interceptions: 0

Overall Niner Super Bowl QB rating: 133!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rushing

Joe Montana XXVI 14-22/64%/157y/1td/0int/100r ---------------- 6/18
Joe Montana XIX 24-35/60%/331y/3td/0int/127.2r ---------------- 5/59
Joe Montana XXIII 23-36/64%/357y/2td/0int/115.1r -------------- 4/14
Joe Montana XXIV 22-29/76%/297y/5td/0int/147.5r -------------- 2/15
Steve Young XXIX 24-36/67%/325y/6td/0int/134.8r --------------- 5/49 (Led both teams)


The thing that impresses me most is the 17 touchdowns and ZERO Interceptions. Also, the worst Quarterback rating is still in the triple digits! It's crazy to think that our next Super bowl quarterback is going to have to have one of the greatest games of their career just to not bring the average down!

I was only 10 years old in SB XIX, so I didn't catch much pre-game hype. Wonder how much they talked about Joe's SB legacy/states. If they did talk a lot about it, it didn't seem to get to Steve, as he played…. well.... about par, considering…^

Steve young started out as the 9th string qb at byu! He earned his way no family bias! A handful of qbs ahead of him went on to be starters in nfl and youngs career blew them away.
Mike hol
Gren as our oc up in the booth broke his his hand during youngs b***hen td run vs the vikings
Fact: Trent Dilfer is NOT John Brodie's son-in-law.
Chris Chandler is. Dilfer met Brodie through Chandler, and Dilfer and Brodie became friends.
