Yes. As others have stated. Wasn't just the play, it signaled a new era. We made the playoffs a few times before Bill Walsh took over, but always lost to Dallas.
Dallas could no longer presume they could beat us every time we played.
Look if, Harbaugh takes us to several Super Bowls over the next several years, it makes sense to have some play signal this new era. But, if we don't reach the NFC championship game in the next 5 years, these "catches" signal nothing.
