This is post number 600 for fastforward.

Green Bay's played a tougher team than the 49ers. Give me a break. New Orleans is a good team. Playing in Atlanta is one of the toughest venues in the NFL. Playing at Soldier Field is tough. Untested. Give me a break. Records don't always tell the whole story. IMO, the Saints and Falcons are better than any team the 49ers have played. Especially the Falcons in Atl. They've lost like twice in the last 3 years at home.
The 49ers would have beaten the Falcons in their home last year had it not been for a stupid defensive play after an interception.
No way. Niners are for real. Are we going to go out and blow away teams by 30 points......NO. But is every game against us going to be a fight to the Death....YES. We had four east coast games in the first eight games. We had Detroit at home when they were rolling. We beat a good eagles team because we wouldn't quit. We beat the Giants on Sunday and we didn't have Frank Gore.
Are we going to go undefeated for the rest of the year, I don't think so, but we have good tests in Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

good post and I agree especially with the bolded.
I wouldn't. A team like Green Bay has already proven it can be formiddable with key injuries. The 49ers would be lost without Frank Gore.
Kendall Hunter, baby.
Dude is a Packers fan, I've been checking his profile, he only posts in threads regarding the Packers(which is fine), but it explains why he would think that.
This was true under Nolantary, but other teams fans don't understand how different our offense is. Nor do they understand that over half our defense is filled with vast improvements this year. And we had a darn good defense under Nolantary.
They just don't understand that this team is a well oiled, well coached machine, that is getting better.
Gore had 0 yards and we would have blown the Giants away if not for some stupid defensive play-calling (which is our biggest weakness this year).
Patriots D is garbage, and Ravens are suspect at best on the road. if the games were flip flopped, Ravens at our home and Steelers at their home, i see us winning both no problem. But still i see us beating the ravens on thanksgiving.. They have Ray Rice we have the best run D, they have a QB no better than ours, and Boldin, then they have a speedy rookie with 50/50 hands. I say we take it and are fine at #2
And I think you overestimate our passing attack. Sorry but I dont really trust Alex Smith if the Niners running game gets shut down. When he proves that he can win games with his arm at least a couple of times then I will be more comfortable saying we are a TOP 2-3 team in the league.
