That's what I thought, then last week (mind we played like crap too) they made it a game against us at the Clink where we're supposedly "unbeatable". I think the Niners still take the Titans, but to say you got the game in the bag (especially on the road) could easily turn into a trap.
I agree with you partially, but every team matches us differently with the same opponent...
The Hawks struggled mightily against the Panthers (in Carolina) who were crushed by the Cardinals, who you guys just dismantled in Phoenix. The Hawks struggled with Houston (and minus a gift from Shaub, could very well have lost that game), the Niners and Rams crushed the Texans the next two weeks. And the Niners lost handedly to the Hawks.
So, back to your point that the Hawks may have underestimated the Titans, but really, other than a bad 10pt swing on ST, that was never a game. There's another aspect to this game that should be interesting: Delani Walker.
