    As 49er fans, we teeter on the cusp of history. With the Super Bowl simply hours in our future, some of us may be shaking the disorientation from our brains after the whirlwind season that now seems like a dream. What we may forget is this dream was born out of a nightmare. A year ago at this time, players and fans alike sat at home trying to fathom a lost season that had led many to believe that Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch had no clue what they were doing. That team, so full of potential and ready to make history, limped to the finish without its starting quarterback, without other key members of its team and without hope that any of this would change anytime soon. It was tough being a 49ers fan. That was our outlook last February. What a difference one season...

    The votes are in. The "experts" have spoken. It's almost unanimous. The 49ers are doomed, at least, that's the commentary many have offered for the upcoming Saturday playoff game between San Francisco and Minnesota. Is this an accurate assumption? The simple answer is no. A detailed answer takes a little more doing. This doesn't mean an upset is out of the question. Even the best teams can lose on any given game day. Last week's earthquake they called the Wild Card round certainly proved that anything is possible. What this does mean is that the 49ers, overall, have a better team and greater advantages than the Vikings. Let's look at seven advantages the 49ers have over the Vikings this weekend. 1. Overall Team...

    As the NFL regular season melts into the misty past, let's make a startling statement: the 49ers are good. Well, okay, for most of us who have paid the least bit of attention, this isn't such a shocking revelation. However, to some, it's just too much to process. Don't mention the 49ers' success to some national media personalities. Too many "experts" still doubt the validity of their success this season. After all, why would anyone give credit to a team with a 13-3 record? That's simply delusional. The national pundits find all kinds of ways to express their doubts: For some, the 49ers' record was soft this year, which allowed for an inflated win total. Others concede San Francisco has a great defense and running game but just doesn't have the proven quarterback...

    The fact Jimmy Garoppolo receives so little love from the national media remains one of the sports world's greater mysteries. There's always an excuse, packaged as a "rationale," that the media uses to explain why Garoppolo didn't do as well as it seems. He has a great defense, therefore, he's no good. He has a great running game, therefore, he's benefiting from the success of others. He threw for 300 yards against a porous defense, therefore, he must not be legit. The stark reality is Jimmy Garoppolo is good. The national media simply refuses to acknowledge that. He's a winner, and, although that isn't technically a quarterback stat as much as a team stat, consider this: the 49ers tried for two seasons to win without him and...
