P.S. "Be patient, we have a plan". The great plan revealed was the loss of Franklin, Lawson, Baas, Clements, Spikes, and the acquisition of Carlos Rogers, Braylon Edwards, Donte Whitner, Madieu Williams, Jonathan Goodwin, Now, that, my friends, is greatness.

Well, he was right. Amazing call.

You know what sucks? If Maddog really loved this team, he would man up and eat crow so he can enjoy this victorious moment. Instead, he would rather celebrate alone (if at all), rather than admit his mistakes. I always thought he was very knowledgable even if I didn't always agree, but I'm losing a lot of respect for him with every game that passes. I understand some of you want to rub it in his face, personally I dont agree with that. However, I just want him to admit he was wrong and join the party. Its the only logical thing to do.

Good luck with that. Been a member of this site since 2006 and I have NEVER seen the angry one admit he's wrong. NOT ONCE.

That's only 5 years. He probably hasn't been wrong in the last 5 years!

Riiiiiiiggggggghhhhhhhhttttttttt......

I haven't seen him around in ages. Don't tell me that he's deliberately staying away because he was wrong. That sucks. He should be here to enjoy the resurgence of this team.

This is all fun and games man -- nothing more. Fun and games. A nice little diversion.
I'm sure its a mixture of this team totally rocking and making most of everything he has said to be revealed as utter garbage and the fact that he has created such a reputation that every time he posts here he gets lit up. To be truthful, he deserves every bit of what he gets around here, I have no sympathy for him. I actually applaud those who deem it nessasary to hold him responsible for his "internet" comments and behavior. I truly believe its the exact medicine he needs to wake up to the reality around him. There is consequences for your actions and he's the type of person that doesn't understand until it becomes what it has become around here.

I'm not sure why he is perceived as smart around here, everything I see come out of his mouth has been garbage for years. From all the truly smart people I have seen in my time, he really doesn't come anywhere close. Many of his spins and half truths are really amateur and immature at best, it is a truly perplexing dynamic to me.
crow never tasted so good!

I predicted 9-7 in that thread but not because I thought we would be bad really, just because I thought we would have to start out slow no matter what because of the offseason/new coach.

In other threads I had mentioned how I didn't know much about a few of our draft picks, FA acquisitions but I had faith in Harbaugh.

The drafting of Culliver, faith.
Aldon Smith, faith
Converting Bruce Miller to fullback, faith
Picking up Carlos Rogers, faith.

So i'll eat crow but just a little bit :P
is there a post where you guys pick which games we were going to win and lose?
I predicted 10-6 for this team for the last .... 5-6 years... Gave up at the start of this year... Now they are 10-2.

My 10-6 could still happen.

I think i picked 9-7 then changed it to 10-6 either way it looks like im gonna be wrong too

You are not wrong, just somewhat off. Of course I say this cause I thought the exact samething. At least I believed in a winning season .

I call bet welching...

Is that a bannable offense?
I think I said something like 9-7 or 10-6. I'm still not buying Alex. I've been hating on Alex for a few years now. He had a great game yesterday and I hope he puts up similar performances the rest of this year. I'm not buying into Alex, yet. I also didn't say anything negative about any one individual (except alex) at the beginning of this season but I think Frank either will split more time with another RB next year or he will not be starting. I love Frank to death but he is really slowing down.

I will eat crow because I did not think this team would be good enough to put up this type of season. I have to give alex credit for that. His play has made it possible for the team to have this record.

No crow for me. Been sticking up for this team through the grim and gritty. Was even hanging on to Nowin's and Sing's balls until the last second when I could hang on no longer. I was in no danger of falling off of Alex's balls though as he reached down and lent me a hand to firm ground. He had no where to go but up once he committed to Harbaugh and co.

I'm always going to pick em to win the west. Let's not all get crazy and let down though if something drastic happens like a major injury or we get bounced in the 1st round :P

Trust me Nowin and Mike Singlebraincell fooled us all at sum point especially with there 8-8 seasons and false bravado, but we are back baby WOOT!!!!
Some EATING CROW moments for me.....

I liked the Taylor Mays pick......WOW what a disaster.
I thought we should have kept Baas, but glad we have Goodwin. I think he's helped out the line a lot.
i also thought Spikes was going to be a loss. I thought Spikes played great for us and he helped Willis turn it up a notch. But Bowman is looking like Baalkes best pick last year in the draft.

I had always like Dashon and I thought he was gone, and this year he has taken his game up a level for sure. (Whitner still makes a lot of the Calls for the secondary which has probably helped him.)

Overall, the Niners are having an amazing year this year. It's special. It's not 81 because the 49ers had never been there before, but it's close. Our team can do some damage. It's not perfect but Harbaugh and staff are a very creative bunch.

Even in our great years, it's hard to think of a time when we have a team that is so balanced. Our special teams are the best in the league, and the defense is top 3, and offense is coming together.

In 81, our offense was not very good individually and what Walsh did was create a new passing system, and they ran it well. We also kicked a ton of field goals in that year (Akers has kicked longer field goals) and the defense carried the team. Special teams on returns wasn't very good. My point is that we probably have more overall talent on the current team than in 81, but we also had three hall of famers on that team, so maybe that makes up for that.

Back to the present, if the offense can open up in the last four games, we can be really humming when we make it to the playoffs hopefully with a 1st round bye. I loved the big plays in the game against the rams. Obviously, the Rams aren't good, but the pass to Crab was awesome and the move by Kyle Williams would work on a lot of teams. I agree that we need more Kyle Williams. I think Ted Ginn is looking better too. If Braylon can get healthy and come back strong. I think that would be great for us.
I thoght we'd finish between 7-9 and 9-7. Never dreamed of being 10-2. I still think we are not quite the elite team as the Packers, Patriots and Saints are but we are getting close. I did have faith in Baalke and Jed York though but that's just in my nature to have faith in individuals until they prove me otherwise.

Baalke's draft this past year was unbelievable. The only pick i was really surprised at was the Culliver pick.

We are better than the Patriots. I think on our turf we beat the Saints. GB would be a battle.

But, it won't. You might as well start eating.
