SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – When 49-player Robbie Gould’s playoff-winning goal crossed the goalpost on Saturday night, a wild celebration erupted across San Francisco as fans poured into the streets. North Beach Street and Mission County.
For most of the game, the outcome remains in jeopardy. Fans hope and pray for the best, but remain limited as the 49ers’ offense becomes deeply frozen.
Thanks to a pair of saves and San Francisco’s resilient defense, the game was still tight. Then there’s the final shot and a 45-yard Gould goal to get the 49ers into the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
“Honestly, that kick wasn’t real,” Stephen Panis said as he stood outside a North Beach bar. “But that’s what we expect from a Niner game. Robbie Gould is a legend. Every time we see him kick the ball, we are ready.”
There was only one standing room at The Boardroom and Northstar Cafe across the street, as fans filled the parking lots.
“I got here and then they conceded it and I was like a saint [expletive] they blocked it and tied it up, and then we got really excited, and we sat watching TV, it was amazing,” said one Niners fan.
“It’s a pretty big deal, I’ve been a fan of the 49ers since 84, I have Patrick Willis, I have my boy, so it’s exciting,” said Ashley Sawyer of San Francisco.
Seamus McCullagh of San Francisco: “I’m so excited, I don’t know how to control myself, it’s unbelievable – how to end the game,” said Seamus McCullagh of San Francisco.
The Niners’ Q4 rally isn’t what Packers fans want to see.
Daniel Mendel said: “We had the game, in the end it should have been 17-3 at halftime, but I have good friends with me, so you lose a game, but you keep going. profanity, what would you do,” said Daniel Mendel.
While the North Beach crowd has behaved relatively well. The crowd in the Mission District was very unruly.
