The Catch by Dwight Clark and San Francisco 49ers Rick Sanchez and John Wick and Baby Yoda and Joker shirt certainly ranks up there, as does the touchdown catch by John Taylor, also from Montana, that scored the winning points in Super Bowl XXIII. Ronnie Lott breaking up a long pass from Jim Everett of the Rams in the 1989 playoffs doesn’t get mentioned often, but probably should be. Dan Bunz’s The Stop against the Bengals in Super Bowl XVI is also up there in 49ers all time defensive play history. Another big defensive play I enjoyed was Eric Wright picking off a Dan Marino pass at the goal line in SB XIX. Of course, there’s no forgetting NaVorro Bowman’s pick 6 against the Falcons in 2013 in the last game played at Candlestick.
However I love San Francisco 49ers Rick Sanchez and John Wick and Baby Yoda and Joker shirt, I’m going to pick Frank Gore’s game sealing 51 yard run against the Seahawks in December 2013. It was the last time the 49ers beat the Seahawks, in the Seahawks’ greatest season, and probably the last truly great play of Gore’s career with the 49ers. And I witnessed it live, at Candlestick Park, from section UR8. I regard Gore as one of the best players in 49ers history.
