    When Don Shula goes in the ocean, it's the sharks in cages.

    He's just a hater and clearly doesn't understand football.

    A lot of HOFers on that 49ers team.

    Years after when Woodley sadly passed away due to liver failure (he was on a donor liver for 10 years) at the age of 44, HBO did a documentary on his life. He had demons and drank when today he would have likely been diagnosed w depression or social anxiety and treated. His ex wife said he drank a case of beer the night before the SB and teammates said he reeked of it in the huddle. Poor guy did not like the spotlight - if I recall he never took his helmet off either as if it gave him some protection from the “outside world”. Very sad life.

    Started off with that huge touchdown pass to Cefalo, but didn't do much after that. Sad story.

    4 for 14 for the game and 0 for 8 in the second half

    I can still see that play as if it was last week. Still don’t know how Cefalo got a free run to the EZ - someone on the Skins D messed up. I can also still see Fulton Walker running kickoffs back past midfield and one for a TD - had we won he probably would have been the MVP. He set a record for return yards in a SB that day. Shula got production from his KO return team that near compensated for our undersized D-line getting pushed back by the Hogs. Also, in spite of the Skins success on the ground, Theisman could not get the pass game going - we picked him 2x with 1 at about the Skins 42 (Duhe) in the 4th i believe. We went 3 and out. Some points there and perhaps we win. So close and a very underrated SB.

    A bad outing for sure. Strock plays the 2nd half perhaps we get something going in the air. Our pass D and ST played great. Their run game was great. It was a very tense, tight game until very, very late.

    That SB loss burns me to this day. Joey T knocking that batted ball down to save a TD was a killer. Never sure why Shula didn't make a QB change. Woodley struggled the rest of the game after throwing the TD to Cefalo. Shula should've have put in Strock. He never hesitated to before.

    That was the best play Theisman made all game. And what a great play by him. It bugs me when people say “Bokamper dropped it” - it was a great pass breakup is what it was - Kim didn’t see him coming. As for Strock not getting in earlier - I think it had to do w the fact we were winning until the Riggins run in the 4th. He usually came in when we were down and needed to air it out. I do think we should have gone to him sooner.

    Woodley got one series after the skins made it 20-17 (3 and out I think). Strock should have come in then.

    I think that’s what happened IIR. Then the skins put together a TD drive and finally got the pass game working to make it 27-17 and that was it. So close though and one of the better SBs of that era. Was a nail biter to the end.

    Was like a punch in the stomach to lose that game! The 49ers loss was easier to take because they just kicked our ***. Washington did not.

    Arghhh. You had to remind me. The 2nd half of that SB was torture. Woodley was nothing more than a poor man’s Tim Tebow. He had no business being a starting QB in the NFL
