As for the rest of the NFC, the Saints are the scariest team.

I'm actually worried about our home game against them because of how well they're playing. But you guys play them on the road. I guess it's fair since we played Indy on the road and you had them at home.

NO could sweep 49ers/Hawks, or they could lose both. Either way it will be great football.

i was sold on him 13 months ago, after watching a couple oregon games. no one was saying anything about him then. i was a big fan of him on the .com message board. had him as the 49ers 2nd rd pick in my mock draft (only because i thought he was under the radar and would slide to us), and everybody laughed. sure, he wasn't a need, but was clearly the best player available. he's got heavier hands than any 49er lineman, and only needs to run his feet better to be great.

so, no, i didn't just hear about him last night. feel free to join the kyle fan club...we can't all be early birds.

do you guys see a connection among the guys standing out? long, kiko, h-badger--alpha males who are confident and aggressive, with fierce energy on the field. i first identified this ingredient to myself 30 years ago with my eyes being naturally drawn to ronnie lott and seeing that "it" factor.
Sheldon Richardson has been awesome. He's a big reason why the Jets D is keeping them in games.

Honorable mentions to Star Lotulelei and Kiko Alonso.
Definitely not Dion Jordan. He was #3 pick and according to some the next Aldon Smith (football-wise). Haven't seen s**t about this guy. Of course I don't search info on the Dolphins whatsoever but he's not even mentioned on national media. Is this guy Brian Bosworth 2.0?

Kiko Alonso... If you disagree then you have not been paying attention to the NFL in general. The guy is everywhere on the field for a rookie.

Kyle Long... Kiko Alonso.. either way go ducks

I could've told you that months ago. He's going to be the same exact player that Manny Lawson was for us—decent and versatile player who can do a lot of things, but way overhyped and way over drafted.
I never thought I'd forget the Hawk so quickly. Reid will get serious consideration for ROY as the 49ers keep winning and winning.
Kiko Alonso
&
Honey Badger (Wish we had him!)
You guys got it all wrong, Leon Sandcastle is the best rookie in the NFL.

I would say Reid. Or Alonso. Liked him coming out from Oregon. Also Honey Badger.
I believe in GIO BERNARD. Just give him the ball Cincy and stop messing around with the Law Firm.

Good call.

or i dunno maybe stop running BJGE up the middle every goddamn time you put him on the field. Defenses know where its going when he comes in. they send bernard to the outside and he gets into space. Law Firm? Right up the gut every f**king time. I WOULDNT BE SO f**kING FRUSTRATED WITH IT IF GODDAMN ANDY DALTON COULD CONNECT WITH AJ GREEN YOU STUPID f**kING GINGER THROW IT TO HIM

Perhaps it's wishful thinking, but I'm hoping that the Rams or Cardinals end up a trap-game, divisional games are just so difficult to predict at times.

Otherwise, our only hope to catch-up resides in weeks 13 (Saints), 14 (@49ers), 15 (@Giants). Count on Eli to have a random superstar game when least expected. . I still have hope!





easiest schedule in the league
Dont laugh, but on offensive side of the ball Geno Smith should get some consideration.
