8:00 sportscenter

we'll see. i prefer ESPN highlights to the NFLN version which have become annoyingly obnoxious over the last 2 years.

It depends who is doing the highlight reel for NFLN for me. Whenever Jamie Dukes is on I have a hard time not muting it. I like when Mooch does them.
Agreed, I like Mooch, and I liked the old Gameday format with just Rich, Mooch, and Deion...

once Irvin joined the team it caused Deion to seemingly need to up his obnoxiousness, he used to have little flareups but was mostly adult-like and objective about things he said.
It really shouldn't matter but f**k ESPN. Every highlight they ever show of other teams is against us. Yet we put up a 48 - 3 ass kicking and they manage to not even mention the game during Sportscenter.
It kind of sucks because I have basic cable. Sports Center was showing Tebow, and the eagles and the Jets over and over. I don't care that teams overlook us but espn is a sports highlight show. I didn't really buy into the east coast bias. Just thought they never showed us because we were a bad football team. Last week they showed us because we played the amazing eagles. I thought for certain this week we would get some love because it's another playoff team that we destroyed. It's funny that they have a story that says "are the bills for Real" after they beat the eagles??? Hey espn, The Jets, Eagles and Giants all suck right now!
It's Sunday Night. Let's look at it from a business perspective, blowouts aren't stories Sunday night, doesn't matter if it's the Patriots or the Bengals, it's just not good highlight material. We're so used to close wins that are shown Sunday night. TOMORROW will be a different story and throughout this week. the 49ers, Lions and Bills will be a topic of discussion throughout this week, ESPN radio and such and such. If we're not... It's a conspiracy, paid for by Harbaugh to keep his team motivated...

I think i just watched over 2 hour of highlights and saw about 10 Raider, Patriot, Steelers highlights and NO 49er highlights!

That's fine, keep us under the radar and keep disrespecting our team! Add more fuel to the fire!!!

Will people give up on this "under the radar" stuff already? We are NOT under the radar anymore. Just because ESPN ignores the Niners doesn't mean the rest of the league does. All 31 other teams have taken notice, especially the ones who have us on their schedule this year.

we are "UNDER THE RADAR!!!" LOL
I'm sure if we beat Detroit the spin will be "well the Lions weren't really that good anyway."

Whatever. I can't believe I stayed up waiting for Niner high lights on ESPN and they didn't show a single..one. I don't care if it's the Niners...any team that puts up 48 pts should be on a highlight reel.
whoever the niners beat, espn will state that the niners didnt win that game but that team lost it.
Throw on CSN Bay Area. Not as good broadcast, but it's like 45 minutes of 49ers. That's all I need.

yeah...

officially none on the 9:30 show. They didn't even mention how they left the highlights out this time around.

game 1 of divisional round luckswing games are getting PLENTY of coverage
Strange the only time they showed 49ers highlights this year was when Tony Romo beat us....
There was an east coast bias when Walsh' 9ers were dominating the east coast teams like giants, skins, & bears. They called the 49ers soft because they threw the ball and they were a warm weather team. It just comes with the territory. Chris Berman will ALWAYS show us some love though.
ESPN aka the Boston Sports Network

They probably had at least 10 mins of Red Sox coverage instead including what Big Papi ate for lunch and who threw what at John Lackey today.

And just now on D.Sanders "Let's go primtime" on NFL network,
The whole niners D was on his list, they are getting respect fellas.

The highlight videos our zoners make are better then what they produce anyways.
Deion keeps it real & is always showing love to the Niners!
