hbk72777: That's not a catch, this is a catch[encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 251x201]
keypusher: Stupid. This was the 49ers' record in the years leading up to the Catch:'78: 2-14'79: 2-14 (Walsh's first year)'80: 6-10'81: 13-3, Clark makes the Catch, Niners beat Bengals in the Super Bowl.So if they'd lost the conference championship, that would have somehow destroyed their confidence ever afterwards? Hell no. They were a terrible team turning into a good team and they knew it. If they'd lost the NFC championship maybe they would have been fired up enough and motivated enough not to go 3-6 in 1982. That's a lot more likely than the scenario sketched in the article -- which was lamely written anyway.
