I'm sick of watching NFL network/ESPN and seeing these analysts shy away from the Niners like they're waiting for us to win the Superbowl before they claim that we're the real deal. Whenever theres something about the Niners on Playbook or another show it's "oh Frank Gore" or "Crabtree this, Crabtree that, look at me I'm gay."
During todays real or fake segment with Fran and Mike Martz Fran shy'd away saying "I need to see more, Seattle had injuries" and Martz said fake most likely cause we fired his mumbling ass. I just don't get it, the Vikes who were down to the Lions at the half have only beat them and Cleveland, we beat the NFC champs and a Seattle team that was predicted to be the big NFC West contender, where is the love?
Whether you like it or not there were only four 49er highlights from the Seattle game that bore being seen on ESPN and NFL Network. Who has scored touchdowns for the 49ers this year? The only one is Frank Gore through 2 games. Do you expect them to show highlights of every field goal that Joe Nedney has kicked?
They usually show offensive highlights, hence Frank Gore is our highlight player.
The only two other things of highlight importance would have been Willis hit on
Hasselback (they showed that) and Goldson's interception (they showed that).
What would you like them to show. A pass by Hills for a 2 yard gain? I'd rather
see Andre Johnson's finger tip grap in the end zone, or the bomb to him.
When we have highlights other than Frank Gore to show, they will show them.
I don't understand the b*****ing in here about not showing highlights. We don't
produce any for them to show. Should they manufacture highlights, and then say,
Oh we made that one up so we could produce more 49er highlights.
Maybe we ought to produce some real passing highlights to our WRs or TEs that
actually have an impact on the game, before we complain about not showing them.
As far Martz being bitter, OK but he does have a solid point in that we need to rocket up the passing game if we are going to be a true player in thie league.
Did you all miss the MNF game?
