wtf are you even talking about? The 9ers lost the next game after the catch I - thats hardly "igniting the dynasty" after 1 play. Yes they didn't do anything in the years after the catch II but how the hell can you even say anything regarding the catch III?? Just like the previous 2 we lost the next game and 2012 isnt even here yet so how about you wait and see what happens next season before you say it "didn't reignite a dynasty"........smh
ummmm...you call yourself a 49er fan?? the original catch got the niners to the superbowl, which they won...

get your facts straight before you bash someone.
That should be an automatic ban.

not sarcasm, my bad for writing it in a fairly inflammatory manner, I feel like slitting my wrists after getting that wrong lol (i think those emoticons convey my thoughts lol), I was half asleep and reading 1981 vs 1982 just like half the people on here with the regular season records a couple of pages ago reading 1998 vs 1997. But I still think my point still stands that you dont even know what last season did for us because of so many mitigating circumstances and just because we didnt get to the super bowl immediately after it doesnt mean were going to suck for the next 5 years.
only way you get a pass is if you were not born yet
I just stumbled on this thread and find this amazing. All three plays were 3rd and 3, what an incredible coincidence!
If you happen to find yourself in the playoffs vs the 49ers in candlestick, and they are near the endzone and losing in the 4th quarter with little time left, and a 3rd and 3 comes up.... be afraid, be very very afraid.

question anybody know if all 3 catches were in the same endzone?
The Catch III is one of the greatest plays in the history of the franchise, to say otherwise is diminishing a historic moment. No, it didn't lead to a championship last year, but it did make NFL history. The true test is if twenty years from now you remember where you were when this great moment in Niner history was made. Just think about it for a minute, did you ever think Alex Smith would do something no other quarterback in the history of the NFL had ever done? It may not have lead to a championship last year, but it did establish that the Niners are back and a force to be reckoned with. Don't miss out on the present living in the past...
Did Joe overthrew a wide open Freddie Solomon in the end zone there on 1st and 10... Got plenty of time too.

A helluva throw by Joe, even a more amazing catch by Clark.

Not sure about the greatest. I think the events leading up to that moment as compared to the other 2 was a lot more dire and improbable. He and the team had just drove 85 yards for a TD in the last offensive drive. To think that he can drove another 85 yards for another TD just minutes apart. There was no one in this world that would believed he can do it. It would be epic even for Joe with his comeback reputation let alone Alex Smith.

Smith and VD -- that was the motherf*cker!!!

you believed too, or just saying "hi" ? In either case...
I have to agree that the Young/Owens and Smith/Davis plays were great plays and deserve to be remembered as a two of the best moments in franchise history....but they pale in comparison to "The Catch" and what that single play meant to the 49ers franchise.

"The Catch" north end zone
other two TD receptions ( river of tears aka as the crying games l & ll ) south end zone

Bunch of Smith love'n homer I didn't think he can do it. Maybe moved the ball enough for a long Akers field goal to tie the game.

I believed that he could, under the right circumstances but was losing hope that the team would ever develop his talent until JH showed up.

Now I just wonder where his ceiling is and really don't know if he has greatness in him or not. Intelligence? Check! Courage? Check! Strength? Check! Accuracy? Check! Vision? Not sure. Does he see the whole field as well as other QBs? Will see as the year(s) progress.
