It should SO be 5-1 though. Did you see the gaping holes in the Colts defense last night? If the 49ers had continued to run the ball I think Gore would have been approaching 200 yards. RomHarb played right into their hands trying to force the passing game, and gave that game to the Colts with some atrocious play calling.
The beauty of losing, especially early on the season is to prevent these mistakes from happening in more crucial moments.
We probably learned more from our two losses this year than all of our losses last season.
Also guys, in traditional Niner fashion.....always expect Ls to come from lesser competition, and us to come up with the BIG Ws when needed. If we are healthy and in sync I can see us beating Seattle & New Orleans but dropping to a lesser team. I can see us losing to the Cards in the rematch before us losing to the Hawks at the stick.
This goes all the way back to the Joe/Steve years, and certainly in the Harbaugh era.
Quite frankly, this is common of a lot of great teams, period. The Cowboys of all teams were the last team to beat the Saints in '09.
