Bill Walsh, 1931-2007

This is truly a sad day. The Genius passed away. In my opinion, Bill Walsh was the greatest football coach ever. He truly changed the game. So much of what we see now has direct ties to Coach Walsh. His breakdown of every detail was something never seen before, and probably won’t be again. What a pleasure it was to watch those NFL Films productions of him breaking down Joe Montana’s footwork and delivery. The precision offense (West Coast) he perfected is and always will be a thing of beauty. None of you have any idea how bummed I am that this man is gone, taking with him the knowledge and comprehension to fill all of heaven. The highlight of Walsh’s career, to me, has nothing to do with Montana or any Super Bowl. It’s his second stint at Stanford, specifically the 1992 season (his first back in the college game). The Cardinal went 10-3 and waxed Penn State in the Blockbuster Bowl. THE GENIUS!
