Well if this is so and considering the solid looking Jets D, and perhaps the change-ups the O can do....It will not be easy to win. The Minn game was not a fluke, they are good and they were focused on intensity. It's true the Niners looked and were..what.. apathetic, semi-lifeless, uninterested, but still, the look of that game sent nasty chills through me. Like many have said the Jets game is going to tell a great deal about where the team is.
Smith is going to have to move the ball, get it out faster and a bit deeper. However the run should get going 1st..
That BS Seachicks-GB game is going to be a problem late in the season as far as positioning for the playoffs is concerned IF the Niners get back to playing their class of football..NINERS!
