Wisconsin thank you for the intelligent and articulate response.
Kap > WIlson you say....shouldnt you look at the whole body of work? i.e their entire 2 years?....if you say that Kap has better WRs around him...doesnt that make Wilson the better QB.
Defense: Agree with you that the margin of advantage is slight! But a reminder to you...the Seahawks will be getting KJ Wright back and that guys a stud!
Lynch > Gore...You failed to say it...Lynch is considerably better...he was the reason why Seattle beat the Saints...Gore is getting old!
SF WR > Seattle WR...No brainer...but dont underestimate the role Percy Harvin has....
Harbaugh > Carol: I will give you this one!
SF is hotter than Seattle : Agree with you there too!
Here is another one for you to ponder....
SF has had to travel alot in the last 2 weeks: Lets see...
SF to GB...4 hour flight, SF to Carolina....5 hour flight.... SF to Seattle....2 hour flight!
body of work for kap vs wilson says kap has more playoff victories, more road playoff victories at that, has been to the superbowl and came 5 yards short from having the largest superbowl comeback in the history of the game.
defense: niners are better all around right now than any team in the league. seattle has good DBs but theres nothing wrong with ours and they play with technique rather than relying on refs not to call holding and all their b******t.
i will give you that marshawn is a slight advantage to gore as he is much bigger and probably just as fast but gore has more heart than lynch and he always comes thru in the clutch for us. even then, you can have the advantage if you want but its very slight. gore is still one of the shiftiest, most patient backs in the league and his toughness is unmatched. plus we have burners in hunter and james backing him up for a change of pace.
WRs is so uneven in our favor its not even funny. harvin is whack and even if he plays he might get a migraine from the crowd noise lol. boldin and crabs have been dynamic playmakers for us and patton is getting mixed in as well. cant forget Vernon at the TE spot as well.
Harbaugh is a beast, carroll is a good coach too and knows how to push the limits of what refs will call but harbaugh has us playing sound football regardless of how the refs call a game and the team has adopted his attitude completely on this playoff run.
and SF is definitely the hotter team. the last 8 games i think they have the highest point diff, scoring defense and are #1 in a few other key stats.
i think the most impressive thing about this team is what it accomplished the last 3 weeks tho. we knocked out a great arizona team fighting for a playoff spot, went to the frozen tundra in subzero weather and beat greenbay, went to carolina and beat up and intimidated a team that desperately wants respect and to be known as a tough team, all on the road. the niners are destined for greatness and we will prove it by dominating the hawks in their house and facing our demons in seattle.
