Media and the 49ers

Originally posted by Seansf49:
According to Stephen a smith despite the Seahawks crossing midfield just once in the second half, it was more Russell being off than the Niners defense is good. Also apparently celebrating after beating your hated rival is a no no. But Seahawks celebrating like they won the Super Bowl after a first down is perfectly acceptable.

But... everything else I've read is that CK struggled while no mention at all of Wilson's poor performance. Excuses are being made at every corner for why Seattle lost and none of them have been accurate. The 49ers won by playing better defense than Seattle, better offense than Seattle, and certainly better special teams than Seattle. Say what you want but the 49ers won in all three phases of the game yesterday. It may have not have been by much because believe it or not Seattle played just as well. The difference being the 49ers made a few more plays in all phases of the game. 49ers were the better team yesterday period. Obviously that wasn't the case back in Sept but cry all you want Seahawks. The 49ers were just the better team yesterday.

Just watch nfln and go to nfl.com to see the highlights. ESPN is a complete joke and an embarrassment of a station.

Sounds about right. ESPN doesn't talk about the 49ers. NFL Network does, but often doesn't say anything positive. Even last night, Dieon Sanders was all over his love for Seattle.

they b***hed about the way gore fell down or that he could have fallen down in a more prettier manner! jesus,, i long for the day of monday night football and howard cosell highlights
Wilson was 15-25 for 199 yards. TD and a INT. He threw for 24 more yards. Nobody is talking about how the Niners held him down it was about CK's sub-par game.
I kinda like being underrated. Gives us motivation. Truth is we shut down the "Beast" Marshawn Lynch and the "MVP candidate" Russell Wilson. Wilson had no scrambles for big gains and but maybe once he didn't have a ton of time on a boot to find someone down field. He did complete a couple check downs that were open cuz we sagged on our zone coverage and our LBs didn't get to the flats to take away the 10 yard curl. Aside from that, Marshawn never had a run greater than 6 yards nor did he torch us for 100+. The sea-b***hes came in scoring 28+ points a game. We nip that by 11 points and their D only gives up 16 points a game and we also eclipsed that. Solid Win but we need to repeat this same performance in Seattle while scoring touchdowns when in the redzone not FGs.
Game was not even as close as it appeared by the score. 49ers won that game pretty solidly as far as im concerned.

Forums are more interesting if the enemy shows up once in a while...as long as everyone plays by the rules...

Just saying.

I'd have to have some serious time on my hands to want to go to another team's fan site and post. I literally have nothing to do for like 90% of my day at work and still wouldn't bother going to a Seahawks fan forum (or ANY other team's fan forum). I don't give a rat's ass about the opinions or views of other teams' fans.

It's like people think they're making a difference by making their presence felt on the Internet. Waste of time and energy.

They call us 40 whiners because some ultra clever people figured out that whiners rhymes with Niners.

Every team's fans whine about not getting enough coverage.

Every. Single. Team.
There was a lot of exciting highlight filled games this week and ours wasn't one of them.
Watch CSN Bay Area if you want legit niner coverage.
I thought it was very biased. The official posture was SF has a great defense, developing offense, Seattle has great defense and great offense -- poor Seattle had a blip in their greatness, and SF is still longing to join the big boys. Time will tell. If SF runs the table and wins the SB then all of these observations will be proved wrong.

Wtf! I don't care if this doesn't deserve its own thread, but I've been battling the city of San Francisco and its horrible commuting options to and from candlestick. But seriously, wtf! I'm in my hotel room drinking and hanging with friends that I went to the game with and they have not talked about the game once. I'm not even joking. Who else is watching? In my opinion, the seahawks are their darling team and they don't want to broadcast their loss, but what the hell do I know?

It's called...every fanbase feels the same way that you do about their teams. Conspiracy, NFL hates us, no respect....it's comical. I challenge you to go to another message board and not find topics about being disrespected by the media.

BTW, I saw coverage on the game on ESPN, NBC, and NFL Network so I dunno what you're talking about.

Maybe they didnt glorify the niners as much as you had wished?

Nothing is biased except most of your delusions. The blind homerism is almost laughable, Seattle, media darlings that get away with cheating? All of a sudden now that Kap sucks, it has nothing to do with defenses adjusting and Kap not stepping up, it is all about poor play calling, bad coaching and defenses bending the rules. Oddly the same coaches that made Kap shine now make him suck. Also all of a sudden you are comparing Wilson and Kap in this game totally ignoring who was the road QB and who was at home.

1) Seattle does get away with cheating, and everyone knows it. Hell, in the past few games of theirs that I've watched, the commentators don't even try to sugar coat it anymore.

I would wager that most Seattle fans know they're getting away with mugging receivers, they likely just don't care because it's working in their favor.

2) Kap doesn't "suck," he just isn't playing as well as he did last year. Some of this could be attributed to maturity. And some of it is that defenses have "caught up" to his style of play. However, I think the effect of Crabs' absence has been virtually ignored this season.

Notice how New England's passing game took hit when a Gronk went down? Or the Ravens, now that Flacco is missing his favorite target (Boldin)? Or how about Stafford in the games Megatron sat out?

Why Kap is the only QB the media expects to play BETTER with his top target missing is beyond me.

3) I don't follow your point of the Kap/Wilson comparison. Wilson is supposed to be an MVP candidate, no? So it shouldn't matter where he plays. What's funny about that specifically is how Kap is being criticized for his performance yesterday (against arguably the best defense in the league), yet not a peep about Wilson though they posted nearly identical stats.

If that isn't bias, hell, I don't know what is.

Wilson didn't play well at home either. We held him to his lowest rating for this season in SEA. Twice this season we held him in check without mugging and grabbing his WRs all game. No QB will shine vs these defenses on a regular basis. That is just factual observation
