20 seasons ago… On a cold, winter day in San Francisco, the two dominant teams in the NFC met for the right to go to Super Bowl XIX. The San Francisco 49ers, led by future Hall-of-Famer Joe Montana, faced the Chicago Bears, led by future Hall-of-Famer Walter Payton. Both teams featured star-studded defenses with All-Pro’s like Ronnie Lott, Mike Singletary, Richard Dent, and Fred Dean.

My, how times have changed.

This weekend, the same two franchises will face off with the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft at stake. Montana, Payton, Lott, and Singletary have been replaced by Rattay, um, and, um… I don’t know any of the other players in this game. –Edit- I just remembered Brian Urlacher, but that’s it. -

It’s gonna be a suckfest and it’ll be the ESPN Sunday Night Football game, sure to bring the lowest ratings in ESPN history. They’d get better ratings by showing the final table of the 2004 WSOP for the 367th time.

Best bet: Take the under on the Nielsen’s.
