Overview

The Catch: One Play, Two Dynasties, and the Game That Changed the NFL by Gary Myers

How many great catches have there been in the history of the NFL? Hundreds? Thousands? Mention "The Catch," though, and fans will think of only one: Joe Montana to Dwight Clark, the NFC Championship game, the Dallas Cowboys vs. the San Francisco 49ers, January 10, 1982. It changed the game-and The Game. This is the story of the pieces that fell into place to allow The Catch to happen and what it meant to the players, to the fans, and to the future of professional football.

Thank you joe and dwight for your awkward but amazing hook-up that beat my arch nemisis the cowboys. A relation to that play was with my boy eli and david in superbowl 42 when david caught and awkward but amazing catch from eli that was later executed by a plaxico burress catch for a touchdown that led the giants to another superbowl win.
