Prior to game today, I hoped we would win one of the games against the East coast, NYG, Ravens, Steelers. Then the steelers go out and get beat twice by the ravens, and then ravens drop another one, right after beating the Pats. Ravens then go to SEA and get beat by SEA...badly. Eagles who we beat early on go out and get beat 4 in a row, incl loss to Cards today. NYG come in here with 2 game lead over Dallas who punished Bills today, and then we beat NYG, so now NY is only 1 game ahead of Dallas.
After all this we have now won one game against the remaining 3 east coasters, (the most important one) and now we still have the steelers and Ravens. I had hoped for a win against one of these 3, now we just have the ravens and steelers left. We are looking more and more to lock a bye in the playoffs. What would have been the odds of that. True we still have 5 games against the NFC west, but we should do okay if there is no looking ahead. As for the remaining alex complainers, I would imagine they would now have a hard time making their case. This was the game I was worried about. Could alex play eli even? Yup, he sure did, yet he is not a superstar. This, like most other games was a team win, and our Coach Harbaugh outcoached coughlin. When you know your STs are better, your D is better, and your O can play even, plus your coach is better, then by rights, most times, you should win...and that be us...Go Figure.
