I know this post is a week old and I've addressed this "under the radar" nonsense several times in other threads, but once again, WE ARE NOT UNDER THE RADAR
of any NFL team and have not been since we beat Philly.
I find it funny that people keep saying it's a good thing that the media doesn't talk about us. What exactly makes it good? I'll tell you what, NFL teams don't watch Sports Center to see whether their opponent is good or not. No, they watch game film and make those determinations on their own. I know it's hard for some people to believe, but that's actually how it goes.
Lack of media coverage only keeps us under the radar when it comes to fans of other teams. Please explain to me how fooling FANS who don't know about us is beneficial in any way. We are not, and have not been, "flying under the radar" of any NFL team - especially the ones who have us on their schedule.
We're not getting love from the media and people say "who cares?" Well, that's fine, but let's please stop trying to twist it up to make it seem the media's hatred for the 49ers is in any way a benefit to the team.
