Dean: Semi-finalist for Canton
The Louisiana Sports Hall of Famer didn’t disappoint.
In his first game as a 49er, Dean went up against the Dallas Cowboys after practicing only twice.
If there was any so-called rustiness, it didn’t show. He sacked quarterback Danny White three times and had eight tackles to aid a 45-14 victory.
Noted San Francisco-Oakland area sports author Tom Danyluk about that performance: “It was the greatest set of downs I have ever seen unleashed by a pass rusher.”
