Are the Niners for real?

Week Two - 20 first downs, 20 for 32 in passing (62.5%), 35.7% 3rd down conversion rate.

Week One - 22 rushes for 30 yards = WIN.

If you can, check out the week 2 short cuts on DirecTv. You might find that your perception or our passing woes is not completely based in reality.

Not Yet. The hawks and cards arent that great. If we can beat the Vikings OR the Falcons, then I will say yes, we are for real. If they can beat a team that's hot right now, then everyone will realize this is for real

I think we get to nine wins and hang tough with whoever we meet in the first round. We might not be ready to go deep into the playoffs (or on the field) but stranger things have happened.

The offense is not a strength and worse than that way too unproductive. Yes we've won two and I am thrilled. But Singletary's restrictively conservative approach scared away innovative offensive coordinators and Raye is less than wowing people. I hope Singletay learns he needs to attack on offense as well as defense and he and Raye find ways they are comfortable and can be successful doing it. Maybe it will develop over the course of the season. Sigletary has already hinted at it perhaps.

Expecting the D to be good enough to compensate for a lack of O for this or more seasons will be rough to bear and ending up needing another OC would be demoralizing.

I don't know, the win against SEA was a very convincing win. ARI was extremely close to winning the Superbowl and their defense isn't a joke AND we beat them. They are the type of team we will meet in the playoffs.
Minnesota may indeed be good but so far they have only beaten Detroit and Cleveland. Our win over Arizona was the best indication so far of how far we can go. They may have been off a bit that week, but they certainly destroyed the Jaguars on the road in week 2. I think we will beat Minnesota if we play as we have. And St. Louis too, if we don't let down. And then the Falcons? Too far away to predict.
if we beat vikings this weekend, the more i think we are
Ask Kurt Warner or Matt Hasselbeck, after the doctor has looked them over, if the Niners are for real.

Ask Whisenhut or Mora, who are both looking up at the Niners, if the Niners are for real.

Ask Willis or Gore, after the club endured Singletary's TC, if they feel "lucky" to be 2-0.

2-0 is real. The facts don't lie. For the first time in a very long time, this club is earning R-E-S-P-E-C-T around the league. I want to hear Aretha singing at the 'Stick.

It's far too soon to pass judgment. This is a work in progress.

Two weeks ago, if you'd asked me about the Defense, I would've said they're going to struggle because they don't have a pass rush. Turns out the pass rush is pretty darn good.

The O-line looked awful in Arizona, yet made an enormous improvement from week 1 to week 2.

Shaun Hill shows no signs of fading. His success last year was not a fluke. He's getting a little better every week. Manny Lawson is making plays here and there and also seems to be getting better every week. Nate Clements has upped his game. So has Ray McDonald.

This is a group that's getting better, gaining confidence, and growing both as individuals and as a team. They're on a journey and they will be tested every step of the way. We don't know yet how far they can go, or what they're really made of.

This weekend's game will be a good measuring stick. The Falcons game, week 5, will also be a good test. They may come up short, or they may surprise us by doing more than we thought they were capable of, but I guarantee you this: it's gonna be fun to watch this season unfold.

What a great post, bro. Seriously, this alone made my sign in and comment. Good balance of reason, logic, and positive thinking...not to sound corny. True fan.
If the offense gets better I think we can sneak into the playoffs.

But our defense has improved enough to where we don't need to stuff the box.
I was reading an article by Bruce Jenkins about Crabtree and he brought up about running offenses needing great WOs to run effectively. His examples do make sense and what we have on our team may already be enough. ABattle reminds me of a great possession receiver and the sky is the limit with VDavis. After this game, when alot of nerves are calmer (East of the Rockies, out of Division...) we will get our passing game sorted out and one or two others will step up. We are for real. 3 - 0 real.

Jumping the gun a bit after just two games aren't we?

Way, way, way, way, way too early to tell.

We'll know more after this weekend. I hope we knock the crap out of Minny. But, after six years of losing, I still don't have any confidence yet.
