I remember last time we were 2-0... when we fell to 2-5 I went out to my back porch and yelled, "Niners! You have forsaken me!"… Seriously.
Fells like more negative talk this 2-0 start though.
We’ve been bad for so long, lower-mediocrity has been home sweet home. Now that things are starting to look good again, our guard is up and we’re pushing and spitting on everything.
First it was our pash rush. “We don’t have one!” …Niners D-line shows up big in week one. Then, what about our rushing… Gore get 207 against Sea-Squwaks - even Neon Deion puts him at #1 this week. Now, freaking out about our pass offense…
I was so turned off by the negativity that I went to the Vikings forums to find Niner hope in the bashing of their own team. And there I found something very interesting.
Vikings fans are sooo uneasy, skeptical and critical with the devil dressed in purple behind center. Just as much with a game managing QB and an all-pro-type running back strategy.
Vikings first home game is coming with a lot of baggage. Direct quotes from forums (Purplepride.org and purple-pride.com)…
- “I just hope Farve doesn’t break the interception record again.”
- “If we’re going to win this season, we’re going to have to be on the road, farve can’t win in the dome.”
- “Farve looked good, but I don’t think he cares and I know he doesn’t bleed purple.”
- “If something happens to AP we’re screwed.”
- “State I can’t believe [from last week] deepest pass, 14 yards.”
- “San Francisco has a good rush defense. Farve has to do more.”
Their fans are just itching to turn south and I could see them boo Farve if he doesn’t perform. The Niners could pull the bottom out of Vikingland.
I’m hopping Willy gets a Pic-6 and stiff-arms Farve on the way into the endzone – One and for all ending his career.
P.S. I've been a daily webzone frequenter for nearly 2 years now, but, I've never signed up until today. Until now, I've just read the news articles and scrolled through the forums. Got to say, some of the best inside 49ers news and thoughts come out of this forum. You guys always catch good interviews and a lot of you go to the games and notice things that the mainstream media misses or is afraid to say. Never thought I’d write on this, but all the pessimism and Hill doubt was seriously getting to me. My Niner season prediction, 19-0 and a 49-0 Super Bowl shutout.
where do you get the crazy smilies?
