1998 was arguably the greatest offense in Niner history, yes even better than 1994
Considering how close the game ended up, yeah I would like to think Hearst could cover 2 points
"But the momentum wouldn't carry. Playing the Falcons for the third time that season, the 49ers suffered one crushing loss on the first play of the game, and didn't recover for the duration. After taking a handoff from Steve Young to open the game, Garrison Hearst's ankle caught in the Atlanta turf, breaking his leg. The 49ers offense wasn't the same without him, and the Falcons were too good to beat undermanned."
I'm ready. 1998 was Steve Young's last shot and they ruined it. Also ruined the chance to see the Vikings face the Broncos, which would have made an epic matchup. Instead Eugene Robinson was buying hookers and the Falcons were beat up by the Broncos
I'm not sure we defeat Minnesota in 1998, in the dome. I think they torch up our corners and win a back and forth classic, at home.
