Remember back when I told you all it didn’t matter that the 49ers lost the Ravens. And not to worry about the Cards loss that was the refs fault anyway? I like to admit things and be blunt and upfront I really like pointing out when I’m right also. I actually couldn’t wait to go to work on Monday morning and rub it in everybody’s noses. “I don’t know Matt they’ve lost 2 of 3.” “They didn’t look good last week.” “Alex Smith is showing his true colors.” “Your defense is nothing without Patrick Willis.”
BOOM 20-3 suckers over the STEELERS! HOW ABOUT THOSE SAN FRANCISCO FORTY NINERS!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite one was the knock on the defense, a bunch of people still have not recognized Navarro Bowman. Good I say, underestimate us, walk around all cocky and get beat like 11 teams already have this season.
We’re ready for the playoffs why after the jump
The 49ers defense is the best in the NFL, I don’t care about the Ravens or anybody else. Nobody and I mean nobody runs on the Niners, and they won’t either. San Francisco creates turnovers, at +25 they’ve lost the turnover battle just once this year. What a difference a year makes (stay far far away Mike Singletary). Let’s see, winning the turnover battle and playing great defense. How people are still second guessing the team is beyond me.
Is Alex Smith a great quarterback? Nope, but he’s good, and he doesn’t turn the ball over. The run game is very good and the 49ers have a ton of weapons. Find another team as balanced as the 49ers, go ahead I’ll wait. Green Bay you say? Nope, sorry try again. Our defense, special teams and running game are all superior. It’s a QBs league until the 49ers run the ball all day on you and force a turnover or 2. Then it’s a defensive league, a ball control, field position game. Anybody watch playoff football in their lifetime?
The Ravens? No, I understand they beat us but again look at the circumstances, I like our chances in a rematch. Our defense against theirs now, very close, call it a draw. Special teams, Baltimore is good, SF is great, edge 49ers. Offensively Joe Flacco is no better than Alex Smith, you’d have a better argument favoring Smith this season. Run game, great both places, call it a draw again. SF has way more athletic talent and playmakers than Baltimore. In a playoff game I like SF.
The Saints? Give me a break, the defense isn’t on the same planet as ours. A team that throws that much against the 9ers, I see a few sacks from the Smith crew (Aldon, Justin) to go along with at least 1 pick. Again I like the Niners.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying the 49ers are Superbowl favorites or anything. I think we have a shot, and that’s what everyone needs to recognize.
