As a southerner from Mississippi, I have no reason to be a Joe Montana fan. He went to college at Notre Dame, and then spent a career mostly in SF before finishing up in KC.

My point about Joe is that even though he tormented us so many times, being in the NFC West at the time, I can't help but like the guy. There are not too many rival QB's that I can say that about. Joe, IMO, was just one of those types of guys you just couldn't hate. He was that good, not only on the field but off the field, too.

My comment about the defense is this. I loved what I saw. The QB had zero time. I really doubt that we can do this in regular season, though, because if we can, we will be unbeatable.

I doubt it because it would just be too good to be true...but one can hope that what we saw Friday night will be what we see every game during the regular season.


Edit- Oh, yeah...one more thing. I heard recently where the line was 17-1 for us to win the SB. I was thinking that putting $1K down wouldn't be a poor investment. Now I'm even more stoked. I bet the line changed...if only for a week.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

The thing about the Montana-Young era 49ers...they beat us unmerciful, but the team was so classy (minus TO) it was hard to hate them...I mean I hated the team, but the players themselves are some of my all time favorites.

That's why the Falcons are great for us, they are so easy to hate all the time, I don't need to feel conflicted about it.

S Roman Harper on the defense being blitz happy: "I know Gregg Williams and I'm surprised San Francisco wasn't more prepared for it."

I know what you mean. I hate the Bears but can put one of their games on just because I like Brian Urlacher, same goes for the Patriots and Tom Brady.

Off the field, no problem with Montana or Young. On the field, hated'em. Between them and that team from Texas, I almost quit watching football for a few years. (I was living in an area that would only show cow pie games.)

As to the original thread topic. Of course he blitzed all night, if you are going to play in a 3G defense, you have to be able to blitz 10 straight plays, and these games are to determine who can best play in Gregg's system. Expect the same for the rest of the preseason. What you haven't seen yet is the Voodoo defense, which is the real killer.
