to the niners it will seem like its ten am and we know how they played the last time we did that again the niners must get off to a good start on both sides of the ball and do not let the ghosts of conrad dobler, jim otis, jim hart, mel gray, terry metcalf, ike harris and the late jv cain bother us.... i had to go old school for old school st louis people. i am sorry but when we play down there it is like we are still playing the cardinals. does the city miss the old cardiac cardinal days of 1974??
I'm old enough to remember those guys, but just barely. Terry Metcalf was my favorite player back then - him and Roger Wehrli. I used to go to a few games back in the day when I was young in the old Busch Stadium. I don't think a lot of people here care about the old Cardinals too much, probably because of Bill Bidwill. He was a horrible owner and he took them away from us. I still kind of follow the Cardinals, especially when Warner was there, and until we had a team here. But today, most people don't really care. STL is hungry for winning football again. A lot of good football fans here and we've suffered from some bad football, except for a few GREAT years, for far too long!
Will the Niners come in on Friday to prepare? I know the Rams have been leaving on Friday for long road trips this year and it has seemed to help (SF and ARI)
