The 2019 season was fun, last Sunday notwithstanding, and it gave us many memorable moments that we can go back and reminisce about throughout the offseason. There’s the obvious ones like George Kittle dragging players down the field with his facemask at the end of the New Orleans Saints game, or Dre Greenlaw making the game winning tackle at the goal line in Seattle, but this is the play that I gravitate towards:

I know it’s pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but there’s just something about watching Kyle Juszczyk toss a grown man aside like a rag doll that hypes me up. It was that play, three weeks into the season, that caused me to believe that the 49ers were going to be in serious contention for a Super Bowl. There was just a different feel to them, like they were playing with a different energy than the last several seasons. Is there a specific play that defines the 2019 season for you? Is there a moment from the season that you can think back on that brings a smile to your face?
