1981 championship

The 1981, season saw Walsh lead the 49ers to a championship and marked the team's rise from the bottom of the NFL. Important in that season were two wins each over the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams had dominated the series with the 49ers up to that point in time, and the 49ers two wins over the Rams in 1981 marked the beginning of a long run of dominance for the 49ers in the series that lasted until the late 1990s.

In 1981 the 49ers blew out the Cowboys in the regular season. On Monday Night Football that week, the 49ers' win was not included in the halftime highlights. Walsh felt that this was because the Cowboys were scheduled to play the Rams the next week in a rare Sunday night game and that showing the highlights of the 49ers' win would potentially hurt the game's ratings. Walsh used this as a motivating factor for his team. Monday Night Football (MNF) is a live television broadcast of the National Football League. ...


The 49ers faced the Cowboys again that same season in the NFC title game. The game was very close, and in the fourth quarter Walsh called a series of running plays as the 49ers marched down the field against the Cowboys defense, which had been expecting the 49ers to mainly pass. The 49ers came from behind to win the game on Dwight Clark's memorable TD reception (The Catch), propelling Walsh to his first Super Bowl. Walsh and the 49ers defeated Cincinnati in the title game, which was played in Detroit.

Walsh appeared in a recent Coors Light commercial. He plays the role of a coach who answers questions about football. Coors light drinking fans ask him questions saying things such as "We have a 12 pack and four cans" to which Walsh replies "Well 12 and 4 is pretty good.."
