I can kind of understand what hes saying, but I don't quite agree with it. I mean hell, roethlisberger has 2 rings and 3 appearances. Does that make him a better QB than manning?
I think my point is what really matters is how you play all three phases of the game. Our defense is lights out, special teams is lights out, and our offense is playing pretty well. Like Harbaugh says, if this team can get a little better every day, come time for playoffs we will beat any team in the league.
As it stands now, I'm pretty confident that we can beat New England, New Orleans, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. I'd say we can really compete with Green Bay.
can, but doesnt mean we will. everyone would have to play PERFECTLY and that just doesn't happen often. Elite teams never show up without their A'game. now come playoff time, i believe harbaugh can mold this team into a team who can beat anyone, whether we are in the playoffs or not.
If that was New England's A game this last sunday against the cowgirls... I say bring it...
Pittsburgh seems to me to be pretty one dimensional right now and totally beatable. Still you never want to disregard any team in the NFL ever, but they are not as scary as past Steeler's teams.
Brees makes mistakes when pressured. Defense is not scary. Sproles running returns tho, that could be scary.
Baltimore is gonna be a fun game to watch on Turkey day, 9ers/Ravens are so similar. Watching that game is gonna be like watching old Steelers/Ravens games. Real physical.
I just think that after the last three games, 9ers have made a statement; You better bring your lunch, because you're in for 3 excruciating hours of tough football.
