VIDEO: 49ers’ Ronnie Lott set the tone in Super Bowl XXIII with hard hit on Bengals Icky Woods


San Francisco 49ers QB Joe Montana may  have been the man that finished off the Cincinnati Bengals with his fourth-quarter drive but it was another Hall of Fame player that set the tone early on. Yes, I’m talking about S Ronnie Lott. The best defensive back to ever play the game, Lott was the tone-setter in Super Bowl XXIII, as he whacked Bengals RB Icky Woods sideways! Re-live the great tackle as the 49ers sideline goes crazy here on
