NFC Championship Game: Thoughts after rewatching the game...

10) Here we are agian: Ahhhhhh. ;-) All is right with the world. Playing for the prize again. Relevant again. I was too young to be a fan of the Niners in the 70's or even the early 80's. By the time I became a 49er fan they were already a few SBs into their run. I enjoyed watching them and the SB in '94 was my favorite. I got to see the transition to Steve and got to see that team grow into the team it became.

This is something completely different. This is even sweeter. This is watching every single member of the team get drafted. Watching them develop. Watching them struggle. This is going through coach after coach looking for the next guy to take this team to the mountaintop.

This ride leading up to now and in particular the last 2 years has been the most fun I've ever had as a 49er fan.

Are you about mid 30's too Marv? In the Italic up there... I share that sentiment. Rings so true to me... I do however remember quite vaguely watching superbowl XIX Montana Vs. Marino as a kid... and my whole family... im talking aunt uncles cousins grams gramps... from both sides... mom and dad... going nuts when it was over!
Wish I was old enough to experience 1981... the beginning... shoot...

And the BOLD!... YOU HIT IT RIGHT ON THE HEAD BRO!. SOOOO DAMN SWEET HAVING GONE THROUGH WHAT WE DID.... soooo much sweeter!


Once again Great analysis. Thank you for your contributions to this board this year in particular... Always look forward to your write ups... when I log on after a game.

Dumb. I thought he pressed and let the Falcons get into his head. The only player on the roster to do so


TOTALLY disagree.

Ya know, those guys on the other team? They get payed too. That was one hell of a play by Robinson. Sometimes you gotta give them their due.

Agree with this. I don't fault Crabtree there for fighting to reach the endzone. Was just a great play to rip it out, followed by a vicious hit that kept Crabtree from regaining possession.

Overall good read. I'd make a slight criticism, but you don't respond well to that, so I'll hold back for the sake of peace.

Yup. It was a good play by all. Kaep could have led Crabs slightly more inside and would of walked into the endzone. Kaep stuck it on his belly though so Crabs had to make a split second adjustment, which allowed the defenders to converge quickly and make a play on the ball.

I've talked about this a lot...this would all be a moot point if the play designs/calls were for routes run IN the end zone vs. well short and hoping RAC by the WR will result in a TD. I know our game plans are compartmentalized and the RZ plays are part of this but this is sometihng I've noticed for 2 years now and it's very consistent. If a defense ever picks up on this tendency we will see more plays like this going forward. It almost cost us a shot at the Superbowl.

Yes Brown gave up some plays, He still had good coverage on Julio for most of the game. Julio just made plays. Brown has been outstanding all year and he has one bad game and you want to jump all over his case for it? Give me a break.


No reason to take the lords name in vain here buddy. Jones a top 5 WR? ROTFLOL.... Thats a gas bro.

Andre Johnson
Calvin Johnson
Wes Welker
Victor Cruz
Larry Fitzgerald

There are 5 better right there and no Jones either. Jones isnt even the best WR on his team lol...


Hell yes im going to jump his ass. This is playoffs, you bring your A game or you get sent packing! And if he gets burned next week by Smith and we lose the game, I bet you will be the first person to jump his ass, so back off!

Yeah, Jesus Christ, Valrod.

I'd take Julio Jones over Cruz, Welker, and maybe Fitz (at this stage in his career). Maybe even Johnson too if I had the future in mind. Dude is a beast.

Perhaps you should read a dictionary and you would understand the meaning of the word. You can lie to yourself all you want, but the definition is absolute!

I didn't say he's top 5.
but the guys in bold are all on the downside of their careers.

he had a breakout year this year and will only get better. Dude is a prototypical WR.

I agree, but everyone but you is calling him a top 5 WR. i just chuckle at the enormous homerism of some people.

I think you're crazy if you don't think Julio Jones and AJ Green are in the top 5 WR in the game. Both guys are big, fast, great hands, balance, and are young (i.e. long careers). At this point, the only WRs i'd take above them are:

Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson.

My top 5 are:

Calvin Johnson
Andre Johnson
AJ Green
Larry Fitzgerald
Julio Jones

Excuse me? Read a dictionary? Lie to myself? Get off your horse. Not everyone in this world subscribes to the beliefs of religion. Again, there is no blasphemy if you reject the very foundation of the word.

Not sure how you can say a guy is better then a Wes Welker after one good year. The potential is there no doubt. But at this point they do not warrant that type of lable imo. The sample size is just to small. Id take Dez Bryant over JJ and Green personally.
