It all starts with the offense. Without it, he wouldn't have been able to dissect other areas

Even more unicorn are the wide receivers in three-point stances.

This play I believe was the same play that was used in the 1st Qtr TD against the Dolphins in SB18... except, Joe was under center and rolled to the right to hit Carl Monroe..

Agree and his control over our offense was his claim to fame.

IMO, his defensive acumen made him a complete Head Coach and is often overlooked in his accomplishments.

After the catch, the tackle of Pearson saved the game and won it for us. It was a defensive play by the way. The Eric Wright play starts at the :38 second mark of the video.

Ha who gives a s**t. Everyone In every professional sport looks for a edge.
One thing that always gets overlooked about Walsh is that he made himself a fixture on the Competition Committee. Walsh, Shula, and I think Landry and Noll made the rules changes every year and favored the strengths and minimized the weaknesses of their teams. It was a subtle but very real advantage.

He's probably not sour. The two Bill's had incredible respect for each other.

That's not cheating by Walsh. He took advantage of the rules. By NFL rule, if one team's headset don't work, you have to shut off both.

Why are you even in the game if you don't owe it to yourself and the team to take advantage of the rules.

I don't think Parcell think of it as cheating. Just Walsh got over him that one time. The article went a bit sensationalized with the cheating title.

Did you see the diagram they put on the screen during the Niners/Giants Monday night game that showed the coaching trees of Walsh and Parcells? It seems like everyone coaching now has some link to one of those 2 guys.
