Media and the 49ers

Not so much Chicago, but New Orleans IMO will be a tough one. If Brees gets going early and starts putting up points, you know that Harbaugh is going to put the ball in Alex's hands to make up for being down. And that = big trouble.

Well it worked in the playoffs.

Also Brees will not get hot against our defence. And their defence can´t stop anyone, Ok maybe they can stop the Jaguars.
I hope the Bears get a physical tough game from Houston. That defense is red hot. Creating turnovers like crazy. They will challenge us in every aspect of the game.

That stupid b***h Fox has us at #6 with the Broncos at #5.



Do some of these idiots even watch games?

Pure comedy.
Best Quote ever for NFL power Rankings, Da Bears

Damn, susweel, nice call.
As for the power rankings take a look at the schedule both the Texans and Falcons have played. Pretty weak for both.

#3 behind Houston and Atlanta on ESPN.com

We hold tie breaker over GB and CHI for beating them. I also think we control our own destiny. Win out and with a loss or 2 by Atlanta we got home field, but first up Saints.

Traditional tie-breakers are irrelevant. With the tie SF has first tie-breaker (better win %) than any team with the same # of wins as them when the season ends because they will have one less loss. It's really that simple. This is why the lead over the Seahawks in the division is essentially two games right now - they have to outright win more games than SF to win the division.
some of the fools from nfl.com have the packers ranked over the 49ers lol
Still 6 games left
I believe there was a thread about 49ers and the media, but the search function seems to be down, so I'm posting this here.


My god, these "expert" journalists sometimes get on my nerves. I categorize them into two types: the "unprofessionals" and the "guessers".

An unprofessional:

This guy, Pete Prisco absolutely loathes Harbaugh, most of you know that, I believe. Here's a.ittle exchange I had with him a few minutes ago:

Me: "If you keep obsessing about Harbs people are gonna start wondering if he slept with your wife or shot you dog. You don't like him, we get it. "

Him: "No. I just don't like aerogance (sp)"

Me: "Must be hard living with yourself, then."

Really? You're don't like Harbs because he is arrogant? Who in the NFL isn't? If you don't like arrogance, you better not watch the league at all.

A guesser:

Lowell Cohn today:

"Do you think there's any chance in the world the Rams can defeat the 49ers on Sunday? I don't."

Before last game vs Rams (the TIE):

"Is there any way in the world the Rams can beat the Niners? I can't think of one."

Why do people read guys like him? What's his qualification to talk about football? He is a fan who can write well. Big deal.

Sports journalism is dying an ugly death.
He does not hate Harbaugh, he said that starting Kaepernick over Smith was a misstake, and he might be right
You better believe the media will be all over this. They've been salivating at a chance to write/talk about Kaep's first loss and if Harbaugh made the right decision.

Now that we lost a game BECAUSE of Kaep, there is going to be a s**tstorm raining down on 4949 centennial blvd. And that's the way it should be. Harbaugh created this situation, and I pray he is right. My gut tells me he his, but today was a bit discouraging.
If the Lowell Cohns of the world have a useful purpose, it's not to be your local team's homer softball lobber...but to actually hold Harbaugh's feet to the fire and hold him accountable for questionable decisions he made during the game.

Yeah, what the hell does Harbaugh know about coaching and QBs?
