|Sometime ago,I was waiting in a line where Mark was to get him to sign a mini helmet. He & his wife were married by the same priest,Father Maurice(a 6-5 280 lb former Notre Dame parish priest),that married my ex & I (At the end of our ceremony,he chants "Go Irish")As I told Mark my Father Maurice story, people behind me were screaming & yelling for me to move on,hurry up,blah,blah,blah! At that point,Mark stood up,said "I'm talking to this man,stop being rude & I'll get to you when I get to you!" The room went completely silent!lol We finished talking about Father Mo(to complete silence),he wished me well,signed my mini-helmet,we shook hands & I was on my way!|

A lot of revisionist history by Bavaro.
"One guy".....yup, just Ronnie Lott was the only physical defender on that team. Yeah, Charles Haley, Bill Romanowski were cucks indeed, just to name two...
The stories of those battles were the Giants' defense slowing down the 49ers offense. The other story was there for the ride. If the Giants offense was 20% better but defense 20% worse, they'd have never won any of those games. So to attempt to diminish that defense is stupid.
The Giants only beat the 49ers one time in that era allowing 17+ points (1986 MNF). Needed LT and Banks to keep the score down to 13, 14 points. Was the only way.
Easy to talk tough when you only need two touchdowns to likely win.
|and saying they were reloading a bit during the mid 80s before becoming a juggernaut in 1988-90. Obviously the '90 games were slugfests.|
