Yes that weak ass defense that led the team to a 14-2 record in 1992 only to have Stevie boy choke it away in the NFC Championship.
We won those 14 games mostly because we had the #1 offense in the league. Our defense was mediocre.
Of course it was a number 1 offense. What else are you going to have with Jerry Rice, John Taylor, Brent Jones, Tom Rathman, Ricky Watters etc? But mediocre defense? The D was ranked number 3 that year. See stats here http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/sfo/1992.htm
But stats schmatz, when it came to demonstrating his manhood Steve Young fell apart like a house of cards. He was always very good when ahead and the offense was dominating. However, when it came to gut check time, he fizzled. If the game was close, you could bank on him going into hysterics. He had one Joe Montana moment, the wildcard game against Green Bay at the stick. Bono, won when his team was down here and at at KC.
Steve Young is just another feline that came out of BYU, a glorified junior college.
