SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS DETROIT LIONS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 2)

Great self awareness

not to mention he kept up with aaron rodgers

he had more yards than rodgers going into like the 4 min left in 3rd ! but we stopped passing comletely because we wanted to run down the clock

I think the best way to measure Smith's stats (though not the right way everytime) is to compare them to the opposing QB during halftime. Harbaugh tends to go much more conservative during halftime. He actually will go conservative in the first half depending on if the 9ers are leading and by how much. Most NFL teams don't go with the run so much even if they are winning.
The Lions pre-game on the Fox channel is talking about Harbaugh. They are saying that he might burn out before he's 55.


Detroit Lions are:

0-8 vs 49ers since 1996
0-6 @ Candlestick since 1996
1-12 All Time @ Candlestick (1971-present)

/thread
SF - 30

DET - 20


Happy Day, all !!!

Yes, and Baltimore had 9 sacks against our OLine. So...the lions are 5/9 ths the team Baltimore is? Stats don't lie and we need to be objective! If you had read this forum over the past year you would know that our biggest concern was the OLine...with which we still managed to win in noisy Detroit last year.
Local Fox news in Michigan is saying this is going to have playoff type atmosphere tonight. They also noted that the Lions haven't beat a good team and they really need to win this game. Looks like the Lions really want to prove to the world that they are a good team.
Ooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Boone will have his hands full today
The Detroit Fox channel football analyst are being really objective and fair. One guy called Smith a "game manager" and then apologized later saying that's not a fair assessment considering how he's playing.

Nah... they are going by his game time demeanor. It's different when he's coaching the team in practice outside of game time. More deliberate and steady like Walsh, but competitive juice goes up at game time.

With Suh? Yeah, but Boone is a big guy and I hope he can just cover Suh enough to get Gore and Hunter some yards/

No doubt this is their super bowl this year. We are going to get their best shot. But I also believe their indiscipline will come out and show itself once again

I agree. I'm just reporting what I'm hearing on the local channel here in Michigan since there isn't much else going on in 9erland...yet.

Shouldn't that be good for a guard... it means he's blocking his guys.
