That’s why you never try and be a hero and outsing your range in karaoke. Real amateur hour move (literally) to go after that falsetto based lyric or two, but hey when you just brought your franchise back to the Super Bowl for the first time in almost 20 years and you’re at the Britannia Arms surrounded by white people, you get a pass.
Well, I think Hubris not only get the best of Patrick Willis that night, I think it was the exact moment when the 49ers started to go downhill. A brash upstart QB, a maniac coach, a conniving and the Emperor Commodus of the NFL continuing to work together for a shared success? They didn’t get far the next year and no way would that have ever worked. I think what we see here is Patrick Willis coming to terms with that, promising he’d be there “by the moon and the stars” to be there for the team and it’s fans. Reality? He’d be on the roster for another 18 months before hitting the eject button.You can’t have those 4 Horsemen of the Apocolypse coming together to win, it’d be the end of the world.
In summation: Patrick Willis butchering All-4-One was the last time the 49ers were great again.
