To all the 9er haters losing faith during the 3 game skid, to everyone saying we aren't going to make the playoffs, to everyone saying fire Sing. I still have alot of faith in this team:
Smith/Crabtree and the entire offense will continue to evolve
The D when given a chance like they will be given now with Smith at QB can be great
I also believe the O will continue to open up as the team and the coaching staff continue to work at it. It's not a lighswitch type of change it takes time and this team will begin to evolve now that a QB has shown up/a #1 WR has shown up and Davis has blown up.
Hell Yes we make the Playoffs! This team has played well in 2 of it's 4 losses and we def should have won that Min game. Not many teams play Ind the way we played them today.
The NFC West completely sucks, the only other decent team the Cards have a tougher schedule and are losing to suck ass teams like the Panthers.
We will sweep the division this year that's 6 wins, def beat the Lions that's 7.
We only need 9 wins to take the division IMO maybe 8.
Look at the schedule I think we def beat the Titans next week, make it 2 straight against the Bears.
Play a competitive game against the Packers in a very winable game (D could come up big with crappy OL in GB and come up with some TO and pts)
We crush the Jags. The only game I see as a possible blowout against us is in Philly (and i'm going to that game sucks for me i guess).
I believe if we play the way we played today and the way we played the 2nd half against the Texans we will win the games below and possibly upset the Pack or Eagles.
This year the 9ers make the playoffs, reload with a FA or 2 at key positions (OL/passrush) then use the 2 first round picks to fill in the other holes.
Then the 9ers compete for a championship baby!
