Ok, I’ll say it. There was a time I hated Bill Walsh of the San Francisco 49ers. I also hated Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Jerry Rice and countless other 49ers. As a New Orleans Saints fans stuck in the same division as these guys it was just too much to bear.
But time has softened the blow and now Bill Walsh has passed on. His contribution to the game doesn’t have to be stated here. I just wish we could have beaten him at his own game just once.
