These are all quotes from the game thread of a pats fan forum:
Quote:A prediction: we see Alex smith on the field at some point today
Quote:Clear weather favors the patriots. super cold weather favors the patriots. rainy cool weather favors the 49ers.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Pats dominated; I also wouldn't be surprised if rain caused issues in the passing game and helped the 49ers out.
Quote:there will be a lot of fumbles tonight....
Quote:Expect harbaugh to take some deep shots tonite...he wont play like kubiak
Quote:Moss catches one over the middle? Christ...
Peyton already played today. What's he doing with the 49ers
Quote:Holy crap are they running the old pistol offense?
Quote:Really, you're gonna let Moss go and do that in our house?
they had 2 guys behind our defense
Colin ******* Capernick to Moss deep?
Quote:What the hell....first play he's made in like 3 years.
Quote:wow.........amazing...the D regressed since last week already....and moss of old.....wow
Quote:Why do Pats D's always suck the first time playing against rookie qbs?
Quote:Lul the 9ers into complacency Check!
Quote:Two drives in, it's a huge edge in playcalling for the 49ers.
Quote:Wow that was too easy for both their units. Pats got punched in the mouth.
Quote:WTF are they thinking? Not even chipping Smith?
Quote:They might want to block that Aldon Smith guy...
Quote:Getting outplayed in all parts right now.
Quote:It's like watching the superbowl giants
Quote:ok....so if they're not going to flag jsmith for holding, then someone needs to chop him in the knees
Quote:3 seed here we come.
Quote:How the hell did the rams beat this team?
Quote:49ers a much better coached team than the texans
Quote:I think we'll win and it's very very simple - Protect 12. Do that and no way they can keep up with us. Basically what i'm saying is don't let Smith come through clean SMH
Quote:feels like a game against the NYG so far
Quote:Lobbing up a jump ball to Wes Welker Brady? This is as dumb as the Patriots were sharp last week.
Quote:What a ******* game this is.
Quote:Again, break CK or it may be a very long night.
Quote:Hochuli and his crew are gonna f us.
Quote:This is going to be a rout I'm afraid. 49ers playing with attitude like they want to make a statement. Pats playing like they expected to roll the 49ers.
Quote:Aww cry baby harboo is moaning waaaah.
I guess they're not going to call any holds on the 49ers today.
But what a horrible throw, guess we're going back to the gameplan of long passes instead of trying to open them up first.
Quote:Pointless giving it to Ridley tonight
Quote:Ridley very ineffective tonight.
Quote:our oline is getting manhandled.
Quote:Why are they getting clear shots at Brady??? Ridiculous, someone sort it out
Quote:Damn. The offense just blows chunks so far.
Quote:The protection really needs to settle down. Free men can't be rushing up on Brady like that.
Quote:Brady with happy feet seeing ghost sacks ala miami
Quote:Must break CK, please please please.
Quote:If you imagined a worse start....you got it. Brady has to be more patient and dump the ball off and Dante has to help Solder Right now its a missmatch
Quote:Pull your head out of your a55 Brady!
Quote:WTF is wrong with the offense.
Quote:It's just one of those games...happens every year and here it is. Good news is some how it's only 7-0.
Quote:Man, not only is the execution poor but we are getting outcoached. By a significant margin.
Quote:Davis wide the **** open
Quote:This is hard to watch. We're getting outplayed, outphysicaled, outcoached, out-everythinged. Plus, their intensity is off the charts. Gotta hope they flame out a bit before they get a lead that's too big.
Quote:As predicted, the 49ers OL is getting away with some daylight robbery holds.
Quote:I'd like to see Smith try and get his way to Brady with Gronk in the way. Wouldn't happen. Man this is the perfect game for him, no way the 49ers could handle him
Quote:Verses these maulers, the Pats are a finesse team
Quote:This game is a messy disaster. I don't know how the Pats are only down by 7. The offense couldn't have played worse. The weather is part of it, but poor execution and great execution by the 49ers defense is another.
Quote:If we're going to win it's going to be 17-14. Our defense needs to save us this game.
Quote:can someone please end justin smiths career? he's a freaking cheater
Quote:damn, niners are beasting the pats on all fronts.
I feel bad for brady, he can't do anything really out there with that defense mauling him all day
Quote:i feel like it's 21-0 49ers and they are only up 7....
Quote:Hernandez and Kaepernik really need to talk arm tattoos post game.
Quote:Just SOOO unfair that Tom doesn't have someone to take the top off.
Quote:Anything goes if you're a 49er player tonight.
Quote:i hope the refs allow the pats defense the contact they are giving the sf defense
Quote:The difficulty our offense is having right now is that 49ers are equally as adept playing zone as they are playing man to man. This is probably the most complete, all-around defense they've ever seen in quite a bit. Pretty much no weakness.
Quote:watching the niners I've just realized how finesse we are
Quote:I pray to God we stick with Woodhead from now on. The 49ers just can't get their hands on that shifty little b*****d.
Quote:Corner blitz too? man they are not scared of us at all
Quote:they miss gronk on these drives....
man san fran is for real
Quote:Have to give it to the 49ers. Their DL is dominating the Patriots OL.
Quote:damn, I don't like this. We need TD's not FG.
Offense line not protecting Brady at all.
Quote:anyone else notice how the 49rs are acting for flags?
Quote:best D in the league is living up to the hype....Best O..not so much..
Quote:I don't want anyone to ever say 'oh it will be ok without Gronk'. This is living proof, Willis would get torn up over the middle if he was there
Quote:if the refs call penalties against SF like the rulebook explains, this game would be at least tied or we would be winning
no matter how many turnovers we have
no matter how bad we've played
no matter our playcalling
we're facing the #1 D right now, and also guys in black and white stripes
Quote:Think this game is going to pretty much kill Tom's chances in the MVP race.
Quote:I said it earlier in the week: the 49ers hold like no tomorrow.
Quote:Here come the penalties after letting the 49ers get away with everything.
Quote:Good to see the 49ers have taken a leaf out of the Gaints - Patriots playbook.
Quote:it simply looks like the niners want it more
Quote:There are 2 teams refs
Quote:We would've lost SB46 against the 49ers
Quote:49ers just a bad matchup for us like the giants it seems. This might be it for the game.
Quote:Wow the PI call on Talib was some srious BS
Quote:Still a lot of football left to be played. Really luck Brady made that tackle. Not sure they'd be able to crawl out of 21-3.
Quote:49ers OC is outcoaching us . I just hope we get out this game without injuries. Our bye seems as good as gone.
Quote:If by chance we do make it to the Super Bowl better hope we don't see the 49rs.
Quote:Another BS call. That was not PI on Talib. 1st, he had turned his head around and the ball was in the air. He then put his arms up and the ball hit him in the back of his right arm before he made contact with the receiver.
Quote:I just think its the better defense wining out. And the niners defense is much better than the Pats.
Quote:Well, the Patriots will finally get a litmus test regarding the mental resolve. It's been some time since this offense was in this position.
Quote:Quote:Worst officiating since the Ravens game.
Jetdell ordering his boys around for SNF?
stop....the pats are getting outplayed
Quote:ha a 0-7 on 3rd down...yep you will lose it
Quote:Our December winning streak had to end sometime.
Quote:This game is a disaster
Quote:14-3 is already out of hand against this D.
Quote:Our offense is off but it looks like the 9ers have a killer gameplan on defense.
Quote:he didn't touch it
Quote:He touched it
Quote:Did it touch him?
Quote:no it didn't touch him
Quote:come on, pats need this break, it looks to hit his foot
Quote:What the ****? #57? There's no 57.
Quote:My initial impression is that it didn't touch him.
None of replays is making it clear tho.
Quote:Feck this refs, making up calls against us for holding on players who don't exist.
Quote:I would blame the refs but we aren't exactly playing well enough too do that
Quote:no evidence bill why challenge and lose a TO...******* stupid
what is with this team tonight
Quote:This game is making me NUTS. I am literally going INSANE right now. We cannot beat teams that are uber physical like the niners and giants. One of these teams won't make the playoffs (hopefully), and the niners may get knocked off by another team
Quote:Bad reffing, coaching and execution on our part tonight.
Still this is Tom Brady at home and a 2nd half to get this right
Quote:I thought weather like this was supposed to favor us.
Quote:can't let gore get that many on 2nd **** guys
Quote:If any of you know the tale of the tape you'll know that Tom Brady, behind at home at the half, most of the time ends up in a patriots win.
No idea why some of you are giving up, football is the definition of game of two halves.
Rough so far - I don't think we are playing too badly, but SF came to play and that D is what I feared it would be - AWESOME!
Quote:If we can close this gap by halftime their red and gold candy asses belong to us. They're big, they'll wear down, and they're miserable in New England weather.
Quote:We are just getting pounded.
Quote:Kap and Gore are killing us. Lucky to be down just 11 let's hope it doesn't become more than 14 going into half
Quote:If we're down big mid way in the 4th i'll concede, but until that point this is a close game.
Quote:I know the 49ers have the best defense in the league and expected that would cause some problems. But what I do not get is why the defense cannot stop Gore or CK. The 49ers do not have overly great offense.
Wow. The sieve like defense showing up a the end of the half.
Quote:To be fair, the reason the D looks subpar right now can be directly linked to the offense's inability to do...well, anything.
Quote:Yep, more 49er holding going uncalled. This is a travesty.
Quote:This defense of the Niners resembles the Giants D in many ways.
Brady has done little against the NYG defense,I didn't expect it tonight either since the Niners have even a better D
Quote:HOLDING by Staley AGAIN
Close to being done with this, impossible to beat a good team AND the zebras.
Quote:Colin's killing us. And he's been extending the play all game long.
Quote:A physical defense always beats a finesse offense. We should know better after all the games with the colts.
Quote:Ouch. This guy is good.
Quote:Goddamnit somebody tear his ******* head off. I don't give a ****.
Quote:Is anyone spying CK?
Quote:nice..needed a stop let him run for 20......just wave the white flag
Quote:Gore's avg has to be over 5ypc.
Quote:Thank you....Moss finally gets called for OP and he's on the other team
Quote:Niners are the better team thus far.
Quote:i wish we were playing alex smith....
Quote:Friggin' Colin Kaepernick.
Quote:Kaepernick looks like Bambi, can't stand him. Just take his annoying ***** head off
Some of yall needa chill. It's a bad start but let's not act like Brady hasn't brought them back before. Still have 5 days before the sky is falling.
They are lucky to be only down 14 after that half.
Hopefully they can make some adjustments at halftime and build some momentum early.
Quote:Pats have been poor
Refs have been poor
Weather is poor
Really, not a good watch at all they need to start playing properly in the 2nd half, this 49ers team isn't as good as I thought they would be.
Quote:Immovable object > irresistible force so far.
Quote:It'd be interesting to see how the game would be if the 3 blatant PIs NE haven't got were called and the BS on Talib wasn't.
One of them would have put the Pats on the 49ers 1 yard line.
Same with the 3 drops, if those were caught how would the game look?
This game is still winnable, the 49ers haven't done anything special.
Quote:49ers are just too good. Cannot stop them on defense and pats cannot move the ball against the offense. Don't see a comeback here. Bad loss because the makes them the 3rd seed now which means no bye week.
Also almost a 2 hours first half. Good god.
Quote:Someone needs to nail kap in the chest to let him know life isn't perfect. Unfortunately you need a pass rush for that
Quote:Nice interesting fact for you, Welker = 0 catches.
Quote:This SF team looks damn good. As good as Alex smith has been, Kaepernick looks great. Their D is outstanding. Pats are getting smacked in the mouth in a game with weather conditions that should benefit them.
Quote:It is hard to play catchup when the Patriots don't have any legit WRs.
Quote:142 rushing yards 49ers....wow
Quote:Nice tackling on the screen D. FFS.
Quote:Got to be kidding me...
Quote:3rd and 15 and they can't get off the ******* field.
Quote:That might have been one of the most pathetic defensive plays I've seen all season.
Quote:Gore is so average as an athlete it's unbelievable. The only reason he gets so many yards is the o-line gaps.
Quote:3rd and 10 rushing 1st down. We are done tonite .
Quote:If I ever see a thread on here again how this D is going to be dominant again I think I'm gonna throw up.
Quote:Quote:Where is the pass rush?
Joe Staley holding is slowing down Jones a fair bit, don't know about the other guys.
Quote:The defense is really a joke on third down. The offense has not shown up yet, but it does not help things that the defense gives up almost 30 on a 3rd and 15. I have no idea how the Pats defense is so bad.
Quote:wow, big play!!!! what a terrible throw with that kind of protection
Quote:Well, McCourty saves the moment.
And after they're all, "Ooooooh, look at all that time".
Quote:And just like that we're back in it!
Quote:Thanks for the gift, Rookie.
Quote:See what i mean, Kaepernick is average. If you actually read him or put a hat on him then he's just Alex Smith with legs and nothing more.
Quote:That's going to be the play they're going to look back and say "Where did the 49ers go wrong?"
Quote:Ugh Come on welker. Brady cant catch the ball too
Quote:Welker is being held on every play!
Quote:Stevan Ridley you have got to be kidding me? That could be the ball game right there.
Quote:just not our day. Have to hold on to the ball vs a physical D like this.
Quote:We had them!!! Can't believe this garbage
Quote:Dammit..... just when we're making progress. *that* is big play by SF.
Quote:just had to come back and do one more LOL at this game....that is all...off to watch natgeo!
Quote:Can you be any luckier? This was destined to be a blowout from the start.
Quote:They can't do anything right even when the 49ers mess up.
Quote:Pats are done and Ridley showing exactly what kind of a player he is. Talk all you want but the pats have shown they can't get to the superbowl without a buy.
Quote:Quote:that's it. That's the game right there. Ridley lost the game for us.
brady sucking lost the game for us
Quote:Damn every friggin fumble going their way. Opposite of last week.
Quote:49ers are starting to play lots of zone. This is starting to work to our benefit. I think the 49ers defense is getting tired from so much man to man.
Quote:49ers maybe playing prevent. Once they start blitzing we will have trouble again.
Quote:It is almost a football game again. Thank you to Jim Harbaugh for going conservative.
Quote:2 score game. Anything is possible if the defense can get some stops.
Quote:i hope all the losers who signed off and wrote this team off for this game continue to not watch
losers are not wanted here, thanks
Quote:Man if they come back and win this. Might be Brady's greatest comeback ever.
Quote:Well, win or lose, at least the 49ers will have to go back to playing tough D if we get a stop here and we get more practice reps against them. We need it.
Quote:Oh man ball back a whole quarter to play only down two scores. They get a touchdown here and maybe Kap starts getting nervous.
Quote:I think this is where the 49ers pay for playing so much man to man. They are gassed.
Quote:If i'm nervous just watching then Kaep must be bricking it, let's get his a-s-s on the floor
Quote:It would simply be a mircale to score 4 TDs on this 49er D
Quote:Rushing only 3. WTF is Harbaugh doing?
Quote:Wow. I'm starting to feel good about this one. Pats win this and they can hand Brady the mvp tonight.
Quote:Man Brady is fired up, MVP type stuff right now
Quote:Finally we get a PI call!!!
Quote:Unbelievable. Brady you are my hero man!
Quote:7 point game
Patriots are winning this.
Quote:One TD game, the streak lives.
Quote:lol@those who turned the game off. About to be one of the greatest comebacks in nfl history.
Quote:Oh this is is greatness in action...Tom wants this one bad!
Quote:aldon smith is nothing if justin smith can't get his holding done
Quote:Win or lose now I feel better knowing we would be winning by 2 scores if not for the 2 TD's on turnovers
Quote:Gentlemen, there IS a God.
And he wears a #12 jersery.
Quote:It is a game again with all the momentum shifted in the Pats' direction.
Quote:Remember Tom is a SF fan born and raised, he wants to beat them BADLY more than anything
Quote:At least they are fighting and not getting blown out. expect harbaugh to be aggressive on next off poss with deep pass attempt to moss etc.
Quote:COME ON BABY, we're doing it. UNREAL stuff
Quote:The crying from Harbaugh tomorrow is going to be epic.
Quote:I am so pumped right now, the veins in my arms are bulging!
Quote:This is absolutely unbelievable. 49ers folding like a house of cards.
Quote:We got them where we want them, close it out
Quote:49ers down to their last timeout. That was pretty stupid.
Quote:STOP STOP STOP STOP these bozos right here
Quote:Man.. the look on Brady's face. Don't you just ******* love that?
Quote:Get out of our house you sob's
Quote:I thought this site crashed earlier b/c of Niner fans coming to gloat - guess they left.
Quote:Wow, our team has heart.
Quote:Please, please baby pull this one off. Brady's greatest single game achievement if he pulls this off????
Quote:Damn that punt hurt, but Brady is in the zone. He will refuse to lose this game.
Quote:Cross your fingers boys.
Quote:If the pats come back, it will be one of those games that will highlight the legend that is Brady. Incredible that they are still in this
Quote:Ouch, that was like a 70 yard net. Hope we can send this one to OT
Quote:Seriously does Brady have genuine ice in his veins??
Quote:Oh we're going to tie this mothertrucking game!!!
Quote:Go GO GO Tom! Destroy Harburgh...
Quote:Brady is calling the game now. He is lights out.
Quote:This ist better than porn
Quote:I hate you devil Harbaugh's, jesus is here to slay you!
Quote:It's Done... It's Done.. We TIED IT...
Quote:Nice run; had to slide short - -first and goal at the 1.
And bam before I can type anything Woodhead TD!
Quote:I see it but I don't believe it.
Quote:Fantastic game, wow! Brady MVP
Quote:And there we have it, and there we see why TFB is the G.O.A.T. and MVP.
Win or lose, that's a 28 point comeback.
Quote:Words can not express my man-crush on Brady...
Quote:We were a but fumble away from looking like the jets and are now in the midst of one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history.
Quote:That's it for me, greatest Brady performance ever. AGAINST THAT DEFENSE? Are you kidding me?
Quote:The Pats play a rope a dope and make it a game again with the 49ers defense gassed.
Quote:the pats are tied with the niners with almost 7 min to go.......not bad given they have only played football on 15 of the 53 minutes of the game
Quote:Special teams...not so special.
Quote:How do you give up that return after coming back...
Quote:Did our Special Teams just did that?
Quote:and that just ruined it
Quote:This will be the 2nd biggest comeback in regular season history. Jesus why do they have to go and make it interesting again
Quote:Ouch. Game changer.
Quote:So this is what it feels like to be on cocaine?
Quote:Now that really sucked, sucked hard...they are pretty much in FG range to star tthe drive.
Quote:Bit of a buzzkill.
Take away time,
Quote:****, time to make another step. Pressures on kap.
Quote:thanks arrington....i hate him so much...momentum shot...
Quote:Boy. That hurt. Great blitz pick up.
Quote:The only positive on that was the 49ers gave their defense no time to rest.
Quote:That was WAY too easy
Quote:May need to play for overtime now.
Have to hand it to SF, 2 very significant plays right there.
Quote:And that is why BB doesn't like to blitz that often because someone gets left on an island, and in this case, it's Arrington holding his limp dick.
Quote:there goes my heart....
Quote:Third time the 49 ers have scored a TD in the second half on a one-play drive.
Quote:That might end the night for us. Just sad after a furious comeback.
Quote:Well, maybe the SF defense is still tired from our last drive
Quote:why is arrington covering crabtree smh. Talib has been doing well against him
Quote:I almost just want to say we need to chew out the clock and go for 2 to win it. Our special teams suuuuucked tonight.
Quote:Quote:This will be a devastating loss...
Dude, really? REALLY?
Quote:They need to make this a quick drive so it's not SF's ball with 2 minutes left.
Quote:49ers back to man to man, but showing the wear.
Quote:Obvious hold by the dline on that 1st down play to let Brooks come in untouched.
Quote:now you can call it a loss
Quote:Solder and Vollmer hammered in b2b plays. ****.
Quote:Oh no, man, No, no.
Quote:Disgusting. That was a FOUR man rush. FOUR.
Quote:How lucky can the 49ers get? Why couldn't that bounce our way?
Quote:damn every friggin fumble bounces their way.
Quote:With 4 turnovers against the maybe best team in the nfc I'm not afraid of anyone. Statement game either way!
Quote:SF has lost the ball SO MANY times tonight, and recovered all but one
my prediction: defense gets a TD to tie game right here
Quote:This is devastating after tying the game. Just terrible loss.
Quote:3 and out!
Quote:CHOKE! Play-calling CHOKED.
Quote:Well done D. Over you to Mr. Brady.
This game deserves OT.
Quote:Can you imagine a TD and 2 point to win it with time expired. That would push me over the edge haha
Quote:I'm calling a 2PT conversion after our TD.
Quote:Well this is going to have to be one hell of a drive. Get a td and leave san fran with no time.
Quote:We have absolutely gotten raped on field position.
Quote:97 yards for Brady to show why he is the greatest.
Quote:We need one open receiver. He can take it all they way.
Quote:Congrats to the 49ers. They deserve this victory.
Quote:Bad play call
Quote:i would have rather been blow out than lose that way.......awesome
Quote:That was simply dreadful. What a letdown.
Quote:Should have punted and hoped the D forced 3 and out
Quote:Pats didn't deserve to win. This team has too many flaws so frustrating.
Quote:We played like a losing team. Defense again giving up at the worst time.
Quote:This is horrendous game calling by the 49ers.. all they had to do was get a first down and kneel out the game.
Quote:I'll tell you this, The Pats deserved this loss
Quote:pats had no business winning or coming close to winning this game...49ers were the much better team tonight
Quote:Everyone's going to give the happy moral victory BS, but I see it the defense/offense/ST choking once again when we needed them most.
Quote:Still a slight chance of a comeback. Will be very, very tough.
Quote:If we don't turn the ball over this team is unstoppable. Think about it who can beat this offense? We just turned the number 1 D into jelly.
Quote:I think Collinsworth may be right and the Pats spent too much energy on the comeback that they were just spent at the end.
Quote:YES!!! Now for the onside kick
Quote:Pretty bad onside attempt.
Quote:What the hell was that?
Quote:I know the Patriots didn't deserve it tonight, but what the hell were the refs looking at with all the holding penalties on the Patriots on the kick return game?
I mean, how the hell do they think James got all the way to the Patriots 35? I counted 3 holds on that run alone!!
Quote:I can't remember the last time the Pats successfully converted an onside kick. Worst kick possible there.
I give it to the Pats for coming back, but it is disheartening that they choked in the end.
Quote:Even though they lost, hard to feel bad about this one. Brady threw nearly 400 yards in the second half. Pats can win in houston and denver. This team's got heart. Going to get revenge on these guys in louisana.
Quote:Man I'm not really sure how I feel about this game. Horrible First half but they fought tooth and nail to come back in the second. So close and so far. Props to SanFran they are a really great team. Seeing them tonight I'd probably put them at #1 in the league.
Quote:tough loss. the weather played a huge role in the game and all the unorthodox fumbles and turnovers by the pats and the ST f ups, we're the downfall of this game. Still think the Pats are a superior team to the 49'ers and any other team in the NFL. Tonight showed the mental toughness of this team and even if we miss out on a bye I'm confident we can and will go on the road and win in the playoffs.
