yep. Buddy's defense didn't fall apart until the next year when Joe Montana and the Chiefs came to town for a playoff game.

Sad part is that Ryan had one nemesis in Chicago, and that was a Joe Montana-led west coast offense. Bill Walsh used to drive him crazy, according to Buddy. Those short, precise timing patterns could get the better of his blitz-heavy 46 defense.
