For perspective, let's all remember that it took Joe Montana NINE years to get his four rings and three SB MVP's. During that time, the "49er Dynasty" missed the Playoffs entirely once (albeit in a strike year) and went one-and-out twice. My feelings have been too raw all day to post much of anything about yesterday. AT 5PM all I can say is that, whether it was the flu or the Chargers game or the cross country flights or the heat in the Dome or the cumulative effect of a season spent adapting to the loss of key, long-term team members, the bottom line is that the Pats, to a man, looked gassed at the end of the game. They left nothing on the field. We should be proud to be associated with them as their fans. We've got two first rounders in April, a young O Line, a team that came together under adversity throughout the season and, oh yes, the best QB and Coach in the NFL. Like Montana and Walsh, we'll be baaack.
