Not sure if this is a thread already, so all apologies if it is. With a lull in free agency (outside of the great news that Ginn is back) and about a month until draft day, I'm clearly bored.
Simply put, where does 49ers/Saints Divisional game rank all-time for you in 49ers history?
You can put it within the context of regular season or playoff games, I just excluded Super Bowls because it's tough to get any better than the top of the mountain. For me, it's ranks as the best. Partially because of how much pain I'd endured over the previous 9 seasons; partially because I had the honor of being at Candlestick for it; mostly because it was an unfathomable finish and a fitting return to postseason glory.
The Saints/Niners game was the best I've ever seen without a doubt. The '98 wildcard game vs. Green Bay is my favorite win as a fan though because of the rivalry we had brewing with the Packers. It's tough to top seeing Favre with a blank stare and Reggie White upset on the sidelines knowing this is his last game .
Right up there with Young to TO 'The Catch 2' game. And I'm not talking about just the last second TD catch, but the whole game. Very similar back and forth scoring. I don't ever remember embarrassing myself screaming so hard -- twice. If you think The Catch 2 game was legendary, then Alex Smith and VD was a good part of a legendary game themselves.
