***SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. DETROIT LIONS GAMEDAY THREAD ***

I predicted us beating the Bucs, but losing to the Lions. All Stafford has to do is throw high passes that only CJ can catch, even triple coverage can't slow him down. But after watching the Niners embarrass the Bucs, I can't help but feel confident that we have a chance to beat the Lions in Detroit. After a decade of losing, I've almost forgotten what's it like to have swagger and feel good that the Niners can get the job done on offense, defense and ST. Key here is pass-rush getting to Stafford before he throws it deep which I believe we can do.

Go Niners! Let's keep it up.

Moving it to Sunday night and having it as the national game at that time. Everyone gets to view it instead of the game being regional.

And it would be nice to not have it be a 10AM game, but its not going to happen.

Ha! I didnt' think of that. Yes, Detroit will have only six days to prepare but they don't have to travel.

This game will be the truest test of who we really, REALLY are before the bye-week. Another 10am road game; our o-line handled Tampa's vicious D-line well, but the Lions D-line is more than proven/legit at this point (and f**king scary).

It's gonna be a very close game... but I pick us to pull out a win (cause Harbaugh is keeping this team in check, keeping them leveled, letting them know that still NOBODY believes in us, and that the players can only believe in themselves, and the guys surrounding them).

5-1 into the bye week, and the bandwagon WILL BE BLAZING!!!

Blah, I think the Bucs and Eagles game showed us who this team is already. Yes, it will be great to win but I'm not goign to put the Detroit game as an identy game after the last 2 or 3 weeks.

I agree. The Niners have already proven that they are legit. Nobody will be expecting the Niners to win, but it would be a pleasant surprise. Winning in Detroit would be nice. Its going to be a very difficult game. Stafford+Johnson presents a lot of challenges.
Detroit's strength offensively is their passing game. Defensively, it's their line. Just so happens that those two units face off against the two aspects of our team that have been the most suspect this year: the defensive secondary and the offensive line. These two units showed a lot of improvement today against the Bucs, so it will be very interesting to see if we can up the day to day improvement that has been the manta of Coach Harbaugh since he got here.

We lose next week, we're still in great position to take the division and make the playoffs(legitimately, not 7-9 style).

We win next week, though, and it might be time to start using "special" to describe this team.
