Falcons player warned teammate of possible Tom Brady comeback during Super Bowl

Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel knew a 21-0 lead over Tom Brady’s Patriots was not enough.

He was taking over a Super Bowl team, so there really wasn’t much room for improvement. Or was there? The ’88 squad had to rally to win the title and needed a late winning streak to make the playoffs. The 49ers were gun-to-wire dominant in Seifert’s rookie year and weren’t even challenged in the postseason, winning three games by a combined 100 points. The combined margin of the team’s two defeats? Five points.

The Greatest Show on Turf was an offense unlike any the NFL had seen, but even the Rams didn’t see it coming. Well, not totally.
