I don't care if they don't pick us, but the collective blowing is annoying.
Annoying and disheartening... yes.. However they did the same thing last year and look what happened.
The real statement the 49ers can make to the rest of the league will be beating the Packers and setting the tone week 1. That will resonate throughout the league if they pull off a decisive win in GB. Sure they might paint a target on their back but big deal that is what this team is all about. Bring your A game and prepare to battle it out in the trenches. It really is what this team is built for. They thrive as underdogs, it's when they get comfortable we should worry.
