Merry Xmas !
The difference was that game being at the start of the season. By the end of the 1994 season the 49ers were destroying teams left and right.
I think that loss left us at 3-2, I can still hear Jim Rome (when he was on 690 in San Diego before he was famous and syndicated) saying we were nothing but an "average" team who was way overrated, that comment made me mad as hell, a few months later (I lived in Charger country) I had a sign on my tool box "Giving Chargers + 20." Had guys who had never bet before asking me over and over how a point spread worked, thinking I was nuts saying the 49ers were going to win by 3 touchdowns. They won 49-26, but it wasn't that close. Had a nice line at my tool box collecting money on Monday, those were the days.
