It's away, in one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL with an upcoming team. They are 2-7 under our brilliant HC&OC in away games.
If they win, it will be a minor miracle, if anyone were to ask me..
Then the Falcons in their house...cool man..
Who knows thou, I've read numerous posts that say losing is OK especially if you put up an OK fight while doing it. So if things turn out the way they probably will, those folks can eat chips and salsa and be happy with 0-4 coz the Niners didn't just roll over. And wait, Sing will deliver another speech to the press saying how proud he is of the team that fought so hard , but just missed turning the corner..
Times have changed hugely and for the worst. From a Championship organization that only expected to win the SB and nothing else would do, to an organization and many fans who think "putting up a good fight, but losing" is OK.. Sad to the point of throwing my hands up and crying.. WTF.
Whoever said losing was OK needs to get there head examined as they are being concussed by osmosis.
This loss hurts. Sure we out gained them. So what? We still lost. As with any game that you lose, you evaluate. Evaluating that loss, the team comes away with what worked and what didn't. Bottom line is that we had FOUR frickin' TOs. Against the Saints, that ain't going to fly, period.
Here's another POV...even with the four TOs we almost pulled this out. That's what good teams, championship teams, do. They make serious mistakes, but pull it out in the end. The Saints did it, we didn't as our D let us down on that 1:30 drive.
I am proud of this team. I am proud of the fact that this team didn't fall flat on their face on National TV. I am proud they fought all the way to the end and so where the thousands of other fans in the stadium as we rocked the house. Pride doesn't get you anywhere though.
A win does and that's where I agree with you.
I think there is a difference between supporting your team and being complacent about your team.
I am still supporting my team!
When we come out like we did offensively against Seattle in that first half, we can take them out of their game plan, but we have to finish especially away.
That's the name of the game: FINISH!!
