Media and the 49ers

For those interested Brian Billick's on Fox Sports

"For the 49ers to go on the road, and particularly to Green Bay, was impressive as any win on Sunday. In my opinion, they are the most complete team in the NFL with a scary good defense, but now an offense that can hang big points as well. They separated themselves in the NFC on Sunday."

Last week we were 4 but Brian Billick is smart and knows the teams so I'm not surprised
"May be the most complete team in the NFL. The addition of receivers Randy Moss and Mario Manningham could have a huge impact on the production of WR Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis. It may still require that Alex Smith show he is at least a top-10 QB."

I'd probally go

1. SF
2. Baltimore
3. NE
4. Houston
5. Atlanta

Tough choice between us and Baltimore.

Agree with this. Defenses are best in the game and offenses are stepping up this year. Flacco and Smith are going to be playing each other in the SB or I'll be disappointed! Harbowl.

Winning on the road at Green Bay is really impressive. Alex Smith shut some mouths -- including mine.

Last week #11
I just don't believe in the passing game. And there's no way they go plus-28 on the takeaway ratio this season.

Kind of sad when I remember back in the dark era reading these and hoping we wouldn't be 32. Not that the media's opinion matters but I was happy to be in the low-mid 20s.

Seems fair from Billick and share the same opinion of him. He did some broadcast games of us last year, so he does know some things about the Niners. I think our offense needs more work. Looked inept on 3rd&1. Shaky on some drives. And this was against a very weak Packer defense. Even the defense needs more work to. There were a few mistakes in coverages. But overall a helluva defense right now. The whole team can improve and is on track. Love it!
Nice to see some folks breaking down and saying nice things about the niner offense! Sunday night there were several pundits blaming GB for being terrible.

Yep, I've been using cbs as my home page for 12 plus years, most people don't like prisco. I'd change home pages but espn, fox sports, etc aren't much better.

gnn, as for billick yep he has done enough of our games so he knows this team. I like him overall... he does the homework unlike some guys

agreed, thats the scary thing about the niners, their defense made mistakes that they will eliminate and their offense will only get stronger as the season progresses

Agree!
Thinking back to the Packers games. I don't remember seeing a lot of big hits from our defense. Only the Goldson one late in the game that I remembered. We didn't seemed to try to knock them out like we did in the Saints game. But play fundamentally sound aggressive football. Knowing where to be and where to go. I think that's what Harbaugh meant when he said 'play with your mind' to the players.

Yeah, 2-9 on 3rd down, get even 1/2 the jacobs of old on 3rd and short... this offense has a chance to be pretty good if we start converting 3rd downs. Heck, it is already good enough. Image an offense that is 3/4s as good as our defense... you're talking dynasty.

Edit: As for the big hits whitner really hit someone hard in the back after a catch. The goldson one you mentioned on jennings... cant think of too many others

3rd downs wasnt much of an issue that game

a lot of those we missed on some 3rd and short - jacobs will fix that

but most were in the 2nd half to run down the clock

we had 22 dirst downs overall in that game (more than packers) i think 14 came from pass while 8 came from run

we definitally improved in that area whatever stats say as for RZ we were 2/2 on touchdowns so that was great to see
Ohhhh ok, back when we sucked everyone said "who gives a crap about power rankings!"...but now that we're good everyone wants to see the power rankings!

cowboys were amazing had a great offense

and arguably best pass defense in nfl they have 2 great CB and ebst defensive player in nfl (no slight to willis)
