    Wait a tick - was the entire Raiders roster out to lunch and replaced with cardboard cutouts? This is a team that curb-stomped a heavily favored Redskins team; how the shit do they get utterly annihilated by anyone? I know this is a massive 49ers-wank, but the game reads like a good idea gone way off the rails.

    The 1984 Season coming up will define everyone involved later on, so stay tuned...

    I must admit, I was surprised, too, @Colonel Zoidberg...

    I simmed it with similar conditions (about 70 at kickoff time; winds up to 30 miles per hour--the game time winds were gusting up to 25) and the 49ers won 5 times and the Raiders won 5 times; they were evenly matched, IMO, and it would have been one of the Super Bowls that lived up to the hype, IMHO (not ITTL, though)...

    Like I said before, the 1984 Season coming up will be interesting & intriguing. I also noted at the beginning of this TL that the NFC would dominate Super Bowls beyond...

    1981 Super Bowl (XI).jpg

    San Francisco 49ers Football Coach Bill Walsh was holding a press conference following the 49ers' blowout victory a few weeks ago in the 1983 Super Bowl in Tampa, he was asked what can the team expect for the upcoming 1984 Season & how will the 49ers change up their offensive & defensive strategies with teams plotting to dethrone them. Walsh thought to himself, "I've got 2 Lombardi Trophies & I'm NOT going to let anyone stop us from making something special here in San Francisco. We can make history by pushing for a repeat, something the 49ers fans haven't seen our team do, but with the right strategy in the upcoming 1984 NFL Draft, free agency, offensive & defensive outlook battle plans, we will be coming back to the big stage in the 1984 Season!"
