enjoyed reading their forum.... some of them were actually smart and objective football fans:
"Love watching the Niners. Everything the Lions should be. Great defense. Tough offensive line. Smart and accurate QB."

We'll run the ball. We'll play short", trying to draw those deep players in. In response... the 49ers are saying, "Okay. You do that. You're not going to beat us playing that game. We know it. You know it. So... we'll just stay back here, thank you very much."Now the question is, when is Linehan going to say, "Alright. Here we come." Problem is, I think the time to say it was at halftime. Right now... I think it's too late to make up the difference.

We had the ball once and moved it like 40 yards. The problem is, San Fran can cover our WRs very easily. Send multiples at CJ, Titus and co. won't win their matchups leaving underneath routes that their LBs jam instantly. This is a great secondary. Running the ball is the only thing we are having success with.
