I think our defense will be able to rebound. Offensively, if we can't get it going against the Texans, then we never will.
My feeling, too - very unpopular with some posting here.
But it's the truth.
This is the one that could break the season. Tough teams are coming up. Houston matches up about with the 49ers. The odds should favor the 49ers as against ATL.
If Houston does the same thing - it changes everything. Right now, particularly before ATL, it looked as if the 49ers would have to work very, very hard NOT to reach 9-7. 10-6 was just a surprise victory away.
They lose to Houston, how to they get to 9-7? 7-9 is more like it, which is more of the same. It's Nowin football by another name. Another year of 'retooling', 'rebuilding' the once-storied-franchise.
They have to beat Houston!!!!! Let's hope a decent mid-level 49ers team shows up, doesn't turn it over, and decisively beats Houston. Where's the team that played the Vikes, beat them, but then handed them the game? Just don't do the last bit, and beat some of the teams next on the schedule. They have to figure out what they've done right, and fall back on that rather than panic when things go wrong - as they clearly did in the ATL game.
