That punt return fake touchdown really helped their cause but GB just seemed like they were always a score or so away from getting on a roll. look put it this way, tell me you didnt hold ur breath just a bit when he threw that last pass to Nelson and Cully batted it down. lol by dominant i mean the team gave up by beggining of fourth quarter. like the jets, or cardinals, or bills, bears...etc
No, the GB game was the first game in some time where I was calm during the second half because SF was in control both offensively and defensively. The return for TD was irritating but they needed two scores to win and SF answered with a pick and score of their own to keep that margin...almost as if they were on hold until GB scored and they needed another one.
My problem with saying they haven't blown out a good team is there are usually reasons when a good team loses, extenuating circumstances if you will. Last year the niners played the Bucs when they were considered a very good team...and blew them out. Started a downward spiral for the Bucs reputation. This year Buffalo was considered a decent team, scoring a minimum of 24 points until the SF game, when our defense almost shut them out.
But! And it is a big but, the SF offense has not been really rolling since Harbaugh took over. It takes a while to get all the pieces in place but we all thought that would happen by mid-season...or at least I did. Now we see the OLine still having issues with CK starting and WRs aren't getting open off the LOS. So we wait...somewhat impatiently in my case because I really thought Smith was improving each week and would be really comfortable by the playoffs.
