Originally posted by NC49erfan82:Yeah like I tell people do they show the same hate on Roger Craig fumble vs NYG in 91? Joe Montana playing so poor in the Vikings playoff loss in 87 (despite being the best team in the league that year going 13-2)? Would they show the same hate for Jerry Rice fumbling the football in the 98 WC game VS Green Bay if Instant Replay was still around? We made it to the championship as a team and lost it as a team. You ask every player on that team and they will not tell you the loss was not on Kyle but on them. That is the difference between a teammate and a fan. I personally hope he plays with a chip on his shoulder next season and tears it up.
If you ask every player on the team, PUBLICLY that's what they'll say. True
Joe? An established HOF (yes even then we knew) but what about the D that allowed Chris Carter to have a career day? Jerry? True, but like Steve said, I think of a a lot of times it worked in GB's favor (Bebe was down by contact in '96 to start). Roger? Even though it cost the 3peat, u got to give it to NY for punching the ball out....but I digress.
Just a couple of Bill Buckner's career stats: 2,715 hits. 1208 RBI's. .289 avg. .321 OBP & .408 slugging %. BUT WHAT DO WE ALL KNOW AND REMEMBER? Thank you I rest my case
