It's interesting how influenced he was by his time in Cincinnati, and how different things could have been.

Had Greg Cook not got injured Walsh doesn't need to develop his offense for a weak-armed quarterback, and he's not the man who develops what becomes known as the West Coast Offense.

Had he been given the job in Cincinnati once Paul Brown retired maybe he never ends up in San Francisco; maybe Montana never ends up in the right system and maybe it doesn't come together. Hey, maybe it all comes together in Cincinnati instead.

Strange how many little turns there are in the road where things could be so different.
