This is the NFL, these are all professionals. On any given Sunday any team can beat any of the other 31 teams. The fact that our Niners were losing to the Falcons on a day that Matt Ryan was on fire, and we were able to overcome that adversity to come back and win... HELL YEA I'm impressed. Even more impressed than if we blew them out by 30 pts. A win is a win, and this win showed me that this team will not give up when it's down - they will find a way to win.

Bring on the playoffs!

Right. Its like that one game where we almost lost to Jets' backup QB and Garrison Hearst exploded for a 90 yard TD run. Shows heart.

SEA has about 3 wins in the same fasion. Worse actually against Houston, who was actually beating them and just had to burnt he clock and Shaub went super potato.
We were 20 yards from losing this game. While I'm relieved NaVorro saved the day, it shouldn't have come down to that play. Kaepernick was playing like crap in the 1st half, with an assist from Vance McDonald. His accuracy was all over the place and he didn't seem very focused. Glad he came out firing in the 2nd half, but these slow starts are symptomatic of the playoffs last year when we were in the hole big to the Falcons and Ravens. Kaepernick came back against the Falcons but couldn't overcome the slow start against the Ravens. If I remember correctly, he threw a big interception to start the game against the Packers, even though we ended up dominating the game. I don't like this slow-starting, self-imploding trend in big games, it's gotta stop.

I noticed a lot of conservative semi-prevent defense and conservative offense that doesn't seem to work simply because nobody is open and every completion requires a highlight film effort. When CK says screw it and does things his way then things start to open up.
I was disappointed with our secondary D. Might be the worst game of the year for Reid, he missed a few tackles which resulted in huge plays. Also got beat by that bomb to R White.
I loved that Bowman sent off the Stick in style, but I wasn't really impressed as it shouldn't have been close from the get-go. Loved the running game vs the league's last ranked rushing D, but Kap has to be solid throughout the entire game. Also, the secondary was pretty vanilla allowing Roddy to have a huge game like that. Reid and Brock clearly weren't having their best days and that's fine given they've been solid the entire yr. I'd just like to see a more complete performance vs a team in shambles like the Falcons going into the playoffs.

Really no need for Reid to bite on that play action when we only rushed 3 but Atlanta's vertical passing attack is no joke and the coverages we used were pretty soft
It would be nice if McDonald would do something. Our offense is missing D. Walker!

Yeah, it sure seemed like Reid had a bad night. I think he should get at least one or two interceptions against Palmer next week to make up for it.

Educated response.
We played like s**t in the first half, played like a quality team in the second. IMO that's what good teams do. Atlanta wanted that game, basically it was their playoffs. While we should've jumped on em early, we responded very nicely.

It wouldn't have been as memorable if Niners completely dominated. I think it was the perfect ending, like pure destiny.
Impressed with how it ended and some individual players, but as a team they floundered on offense for awhile. The offense can't take advantage of a weak Falcon defense. And the defense shouldn't have given up 24 pts to the Falcons.

But got my wish.. no injuries
Good teams find ways to win. Its not always pretty but this game is going to be the emotional spring board we needed it to be. We have the most momentum of any team in the entire league right now and it couldnt be at a better time.
