  • RIP. I hate the 49ers, but he played long before we were division rivals permanently. Seemed like a good guy. Our resident niner fans no doubt regard 'The Catch' the way we regard 'The Tip'.

  • That sucks. ALS is one of the most horrible diseases you can get. Was so sad for him when he announced he had it. Hope he is in a better place.

    Yeah...It was Dwight Clark Day when the Niners played Dallas this year. A ton of his old teammates on the field at halftime including Joe and Jerry. He was in a box with Eddie D and they had him address the crowd. It was REALLY hard to watch as I had no idea the disease had ravaged him so badly already. His speech was very, very slow and difficult to follow. At that point, he'd only been diagnosed for 5 or 6 months so I had no idea the disease had progressed so far.

    RIP Dwight. The Catch will live on forever.

    Really hope they wear a #87 patch or something this year.

  • It's a sad situation. He had a terrible health problem. I hope his family will be OK. From all accounts most people thought he was a really good guy.

  • Aw man. Sad to hear this. I remember the days with him on the 49ers well. Actually rooted for them a lot as it usually didn't matter with regards to the Seahawks back then.

  • I read a story a long time ago where Joe and Dwight were driving by a park and saw some kids with jerseys on re-enacting "The Catch" so they pulled over and got out to talk to the kids. Classy move.
