WOOOOO!!!! Ok this is long but I just need to let it out.
Superbowl. Mother****ing Superbowl.
Frank Gore, Donte Whitner, Carlos Rogers, Justin Smith, Isaac Sopoaga; so many guys on this team who worked their asses off and never got anywhere, so happy for them.
Mostly though, let's talk about Frank the Tank for a second can we? Unbelievable. He fought and fought and fought, never gave up and came up HUGE! What an unbelievable player, let's get him a ring before he hangs it up in the next few years because he blew his knees out even further giving this team every single thing he had.
Kaptain Kap, what a performance. Like I said elsewhere, he's a passer who can run, not a runner who can pass. He showed Atlanta that he isn't a one-trick pony and came up with some huge passes, especially to :
Vernon ****ing Davis. Way to show up! After a rough end of the season he was finding acres of space and making the Falcons pay. No drops, no mental mistakes.
Not a single offside. Are you kidding me?! What a performance by this O-line. We weren't dominant but you can't expect to be every game, especially not on the road against a #1 seed. Kap had time when he needed it and the running lanes were there when we needed them.
How about that defense? Pitching a shut-out in the second half? Hey, Seahakws, anything you can do we can do better! Yet again they figured it out and shut. it. down. I was furious in the first half that the Falcons were passing at will but this defense really shut me up in the second half. What a bounce-back performance.
As for the coaching staff and front office, thank you. Thank you so much and bless your hearts. 3 years ago I never would have thought this day was possible; I am proud to wear my redngold and proud to be a 49er fan. What a season and what a franchise we have put together.
Jed, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Eddie wasn't just emotional because the 49ers are in the SB. He, like I, was emotional because it was YOU who masterminded this. It was YOU who brought in Harbaugh. It was YOU who got the stadium, made the decision on Baalke and gave the reigns to the right people. It was YOU who demanded that our core players get the extensions they wanted. It's YOU who should have the biggest smile on his face tonight.
I really feel like nobody has it better. Nobody could possibly have it better than us right now. We have a young team and arguably the most talented one in the league at that. We have a tremendous coaching staff that wants to be nowhere but here, and we have a fantastic owner who cares only about winning.
To my fellow 49er brothers and sisters, we have one more to go so don't think we've accomplished the final goal yet, but let's savor this day. For those of you who were around in the Arnaz Battle/Kevan Barlow/Tim Rattay days, we've earned it. It happened. It actually ****ing happened.
