Joe Staley not impressed with "Silver Crush"

What a horribly unoriginal nickname, and they even had a contest for it. But Joe, what about moving on with humble hearts... yikes!

"They didn't want any part of us up front," Staley told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "Look at the game. We killed them. Every single pressure they got was cheap. It was on a keep or something like that. They weren't beating us one on one. We ran for about 200 yards (148 yards) on the so-called best D-line in all of football."

Staley added that he's never been impressed by the Lions' defensive line. Nor should he be. The Lions are 0-3 against the 49ers since coach Jim Schwartz took over in 2009.

"They think highly of themselves," 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis said. "I heard they said they were the best D-line in the league or something. I feel that's disrespectful to other good defensive lines."

It's hard to argue against the thought. Ndamukong Suh, Kyle Vanden Bosch and Cliff Avril do like to sing their own praises. But the Lions are going to need a few wins over name teams before the bravado turns into a running joke.


I'll make an exception to moving on with humble hearts for this one. The Lions team is full of punks and are highly overrated.

Staley is not usually a talker which shows you how something.

I dont think coach said the usual 'lets move on with humble hearts' and so the boys that had something to say kept it real.
