    Bill Walsh passes on

    via PFT.com

    Hall-of-Fame head coach Bill Walsh, whose West Coast offense made a mediocre at best 49ers team into a dynasty in the 1980s, has died at age 75 of leukemia.

    Walsh led the 49ers to three Super Bowl championships, retiring after the team won Super Bowl XXIII.
    He moved on to other things, working as a broadcaster, coaching at Stanford, and returning to the San Fran front office, but those years as the head coach of the Niners always were the brightest lights of his football resume.

    Walsh has been battling leukemia for a while.
    We received word of his passing from KGO-TV in San Francisco.



    Even babies know the difference.

    This pisses me off. I was watching NFL classics-1994 vikings vs bears for first place in the division. Vikings are leading by 3 with 4 minutes left and they go to non-stop coverage of Bill Walsh, it's ridiculous. They literally are interviewing anyone he has ever known. The guy was 75 and had leukemia, it's not like it was a current player of anything. They have been doing this crap for a while on ESPN where they go to all day coverage whenever anyone dies, it's ridiculous. If they ever do this during a real game I'm going to be even more pissed.
    rant off
    RIP Bill Walsh
    P.S. Does anyone one know who won the game in 1994 week 13 or 14 against the bears.

    If you had watched it Sunday night on the NFL Network you would have not had the ending spoiled. The Vikes won in overtime with nearly an 80 yard pass to Cris Carter

    Darn it, that is the perfect way for the vikes to win, I am even wearing my Carter jersey today. Screw you Bill Walsh.
