Re: Falcons vs 49ers in history by the numbers... 


Thanks for the stats but the only game we're concerned with is this coming up Sunday's.  I hate pass history stats unless they're current team match-ups such as a year or two.  Those teams in the past we're all totally different so it's doesn't matter what Garrison Hearst or Jamal Anderson did to us or we to them.  

The only stat I would like to see is a Niner's Win and Falcons loss.

I think my all-time favorite 49ers-Falcons game was in 1990 when a hotshot young CB nicknamed "Prime" was making a name for himself by shutting down top receivers around the league.  But could he shut down the great Jerry Rice, too?  13 catches, 225 yards, and 5 TDs later, we had an answer.

Yes, but Atlanta always had the option of switching Deion Sanders onto Rice. You'd think they would have if they felt Sanders had much chance of shutting Rice down, or even limiting him.

5 TD's for Jerry Rice that game. In the other 15 he never had more than 1 TD per game. 

My two favorite teams are the 49ers and whoever is playing Seattle.

Several years ago it was discussed that Rice pretty well owned Deion when it came to head to head matchups.

I would have loved to watch them go at it in practice, the one year Sanders was with the 49ers.

RE: Falcons vs 49ers in history by the numbers... 


That was a good matchup, but I think Rice got the better of that matchup overall (in terms of team wins and individual performance). While Deion was in Atlanta, the 49ers went 7-3 against the Falcons.

Rice had 63 catches for 1056 yds and 13 TD in those ten games, with an additional 2 rushes for 69 yds and 2 TD on the ground.

His best games (by yardage) against Deion:

10/14/1990 - 13 catches, 225 yds, 5 TD
10/18/1992 - 7 catches, 183 yds, 1 TD (1 rush, 26 yd, 1 TD)
9/23/1990 - 8 catches, 171 yds, 1 TD
10/13/1991 - 7 catches, 138 yds, 1 TD
12/11/1993 - 6 catches, 105 yds
11/12/1989 - 3 catches, 81 yds, 2 TD

In one of Deion's best statistical game vs. Jerry (3 catches for 33 yards in a 37-30 win for the 49ers over Atlanta in 1993) Rice still had the longest run of his NFL career (43 yards) for a score.

Those were quite some matchups, for sure. Definitely two of the best of all time at any positions playing head to head.

By the way, Atlanta also happens to be the team Rice torched for more catches, yards, and touchdowns than any other team. His career numbers against Atlanta:

175 catches, 2731 yds, 25 TD
20-8-1 record

I was thinking about this dilemma. If we are fortunate enough to win the next 2 games I don't know what I will do, provided I can even figure out how to change itbiggrin

Unless they did something just crazy!   The ones would never see each other in practice.  It's always ones versus twos, or ones versus threes.

You can keep the name as a relic of a bygone era, when the 49ers were merely a five-championship organization, rather than eight-championship organization (too early to assume three championships in the Harbaugh/Kaepernick era?).

RE: Falcons vs 49ers in history by the numbers... 


You're right.  I'm confusing two memories.  But I specifically recall a much-anticipated Deion v. Rice game one year where Deion had been shutting guys down all year.  I remember them showing the stats where he locked up several top guys (guys like Herman Moore, Chris Carter, Sterling Sharpe, etc.).  All of them had only 1 to 4 catches for minimal yards.  Then he faced Jerry, and Jerry went off for a big game against him.  But it might've been a different year and, two decades later, I confused the two games.

Well Herman Moore didn't really establish himself as elite until 1994, the year Deion was on the 49ers, although he had started to become a pretty good receiver in 1992. Sterling Sharpe's final season was 1994. Chris Carter didn't really emerge until 1993, either, although, like Moore, he had a couple 'decent' years prior to his breakout season. I don't mean to doubt your memory, ljlawdog tongue, but if these were the WR that were talked about, it probably had to be 1993. Problem is, the Falcons only played the Lions and 49ers that year, and Herman Moore torched Atlanta for 104 yds and a TD, while Jerry (in the first matchup) only had 3 catches for 33 yards. He did have 6 catches for 105 yards in the later matchup, but did not score, and Atlanta won that game.

I do remember something similar, though, and I'm thinking maybe it was 1991. The 49ers played the Falcons in the 6th game of the season, and no WR had gained 100 yards on the Falcons yet. They'd faced the likes of Stephone Paige (who had been a 1000 yard receiver the year before), Tim Brown, a young Chris Carter, Anthony Miller (who had been a pro-bowl WR a couple years running coming into 1991), and Eric Martin (a 1000 yard receiver a couple years running as well). Rice put up 138 yards, including a 57 yard TD catch in that game.

Okay, I know I'm not crazy. I specifically remember a Sportscenter clip that showed various receivers Deion had faced and his lockdown numbers against them. And then Rice had a big game when nobody else had. Maybe I have the wrong receivers. It could've been '91 I suppose. It definitely happened.

RE: Falcons vs 49ers in history by the numbers... 


I'm not saying it didn't happen. I sort of remember some similar type of mention. I just don't think the graphic had Carter, Moore, and Sharpe. There's no year that really matches that. I was sort of teasing you, but then figured I'd try to check what year it might have been. 1991 seems to fit. The big 1990 games, as we know, he was not the main guy covering Rice.

I also double-checked, and it looks like Deion didn't play in the 56-17 blowout in 1992, when Rice put up 183 yards and 2 TD. Deion was playing in the World Series with the Braves and was not available for the game.

I was thinking maybe it was 1995, but Deion missed the first 8 weeks of that year with a knee injury. Rice did torch the Cowboys in week 11, but Deion had only been back for three weeks.

Really, the only big game Rice had against Sanders when he was at full health and covering him full time was the 1991 game. He had other good games, but that one looks like it's the most likely one.
