we have the right to predict whatever we want. lol

Sure, go right ahead and make your win predictions... Just don't be surprised if we lose to the raiders or panthers or even rams. Alexis Smith has proven he can always find a way to lose.

Or that he can't find a way to win.

we still have the right to predict whatever we want.

Smith was better LAST year than he is this year. That's the baffling part. Last year: the 2nd half at Houston, Seattle game, Jags game, Colts game, and of course the last two...Smith was decent. We could at least TRUST him with the ball.

Now we can't even do that. The guy has regressed big time.

This was the first week with a new OC and he completed 67% of his passes against a very good defense on the road. To say thats regression is ignorance. You can't trust him. Don't lump me in with your "we". The team trusts him. Did you not see the rapport developing with crabtree today? C'mon bruh, regressed? Did you watch the game?
Lets actually win a game first.
It's painfully obvious that this team is a HECKUVA lot closer to WINNING games than LOSING games.

We just need 1 win and then the snowball effect happens. IE the titans last year

Yes, clearly we are 0-4 and things on the surface look a bit grim. BUT, the fact that we can (and will IMO) finish with a winning record is more that reasonable. No, i do not feel that i am a homer, but you can call me that if you wish. IMO here's why there are reasons for optimism amongst all this pessimism:

1.) 2 of our 4 losses have been last second field goal losses to the cream of the crop (NO and ATL) in the NFC.

2.) 3 of our 4 losses are ROAD losses in 3 of the more difficult environments in the NFL.

3.) Despite our lack of scoring vs ATL, any one that has watched every minute of every 49er game the past 20 games knows that was one of the better called games that we've had in some time. In our first week w/ a new OC we showed the ability to utilize the entire field, use multiple set and motions, and create mismatches and misdirections against a very good and underrated defense. The big stat for me is our marked improvement on 3rd down efficiency, going 6-12.

4.) Alex Smith is showing PROGRESS. Yes, the play where he tried to make something out of nothing on the pick tipped off Gores hand was STUPID. BUT, the more he plays, the more he'll learn those aren't the types of risks that offer much reward. The second pick really was a great defensive scheme by the Falcons. Give credit where credit is due. They're payed to stop offenses and that type of coverage would have fooled even the great Peyton Manning. So what did i see in Alex? Accuracy, intelligence, and the willingness to take chances. He completed almost 66% of his passes. He was something like 10 for his first 10. The deep ball to Walker drew PI and on a big 3rd and 1. The deep ball to Morgan, man if Alex had just a spilt second more i say he hits him deep. Woulda been nice to see Josh dive for that ball. The intelligence was on display when in shotgun on 3rd and 5 he audibles, motions gore from the right to the left and gives a draw to gore, first down! Just a great read of the defensive setup.

5.) Our schedule gets insanely easy!
- Eagles @ home where we play well. NO VICK. We own on prime-time. Especially our D. W
- Oak, C'mon man. W
- Panthers? Rookie qb? Easy. W
- Den in London, who knows? W/L
- Rams, Bucs, Cards thats 3 straight. W
- GB has ownage- L
- Sea, we get revenge @ home- W
- SD who knows? W/L
- Rams and Cards to finish out?? W

That's at least 8 with as many as 10 or 11 wins.


KEEP THE FAITH ALIVE. Look for the positives, cuz the negatives are for the deserters

SO TRUE! my post yesterday said this as well. i am still saying 9-7 and a division win....these fans that panic need to realize At SEA at ATL and NO were all seen as losses by most of us fans. 1-3 or 2-2 was most of our projected records. Not to worry by the end of the year we will see the niners OL hopefully gel somewhat and our wr's actually need to get some seperation to help alex like most other teams OL's and wr's.

And all of you know we spanked the saints and Falcons and we can't kill ourselves every game.

They had a 2K yard rusher. We have a 2Yd and a cloud of dust rusher.

Yeah, I mean ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I know I'm getting flamed for this but I'm truly hoping Alex plays horrible the rest of the year and gets replaced, I don't care if we don't make the playoffs I want to watch a real QB.

There are no moral victories, but there is no question who the better team was Monday night vs the saints and who the better team was today. They got the win yes, but losses like this build character and confidence. Sometimes character and confidence can win you games when the execution is missing.

Dont tell me. Show me.
way to stay positive. it's hard. but here is somehing that I thought of: we have played one divisional game. we lost and then had to battle tough teams in KC, NO and now ATL. though these are losses, I look at these games as us sharpening our knives and tightening up loose ends. this will set up revenge against the hawks, ass whooping in the cards and a riminder to the rams that-well...that they are still the rams.

I care about winning, but if we were to just shut it all down now and carry that "woe-is-me" attitude, then the seaon would be over.

here is something that we forgot about: character. a loss sucks, but how can battle week after week-win or lose-is going to be a telling sign f the type of character we have.

if we finish as I hope, we will win the west and we will face the good teams. but we will face them after taking our lumps. as they say, the playoffs is season two. what record you carry into the playoffs don't fcking matter. everyone is 0-0.

let's get that ass, niners! still faithful!!!!!

excuse any typos. I'm drunk, on iPhone and back from giants win in SF.
