Point is, in the playoffs on 3rd and 3 in the fourth qtr. aganst us, all defenses should run frantically from the field due to the inevitable.

nope can't remember which but either I or II was in the opposite endzone
Think II and III were in the same end zone.
The Catch I-January 10th 1982-3rd and 3 from the 6 yd line
The Catch II-January 4th 1999-3rd and 3 from the 26 yd line
The Catch III-January 14th 2012-3rd and 3 from the 14 yd line
6 + 26 + 14 = XLVI

The Saints had 9secs left in the game for a come back, 9 being a multiple of 3! After the kick return Brees only had . . . . . .3secs to mount something! Coach takes his third and final time out! 9ers won 36-32 . . . . 36 is a multiple of 3!

Yeah you will know a superbowl is soon to follow if it is in the other endzone... both catches that failed to get another superbowl were in the opposite end zone of Montana's "catch". Which in retrospect is the only catch that actually mattered.
Being too young to have properly enjoyed the original catch or even the Young to T.O. catch the Smith to Davis catch meant the most to me emotionally. However in the grand scheme it meant nothing just like the Owens catch because there was no superbowl to follow it up with.
We need a catch in that end zone Montana hit Clark in damnit.... the other end zone is cursed... makes for some fun memories and emotional times but there arent any trophies or rings as a result.
I guess we need our niners to get to an NFC championship and make a new "catch" for it to really matter, and also make sure it's in the other end zone.. :(
