Kind of laughing at some of the reasons we will lose..... - Xanthri - 01-17-2013 06:11 PM
As most have seen, very few in the media give us a chance at winning the NFC Championship.
1st - how can we hope to contain CK? - okay he ran over the GB Packers...
but in his last 4 games his completion percentage are 54.8 57.1 52.8 56.0
his rushing yards 181 5 31 28 53 - it is obvious that GB didn't expect him to tuck and run so much and didn't have a plan to adjust if he did......If Turner was gaining yardage at will.....wouldn't you feed him until it didn't work anymore?
2nd - how do we stop crabtree? in SF big wins....Crabtree has 2 TDs in each! We give up yardage but let's be serious....is crabtree better than Calvin Johnson? Against us CJ put up 225 yards.....how many TDs? That is right a BIG FAT GOOSE EGG!
3rd - Vernon Davis will give us problems.....yes Zach Miller burned us a lot in the soft zone.....but we didn't play soft zone until we were up by 20.....before that...Zach Miller caught a few but didn't hurt us. Also ever since CK took over....VD numbers have been terrible (I could see them trying to force feed him all day based on Zach Miller performance) His receptions in last five games 1 1 1 1 1 with a maximum of 44 yards and ZERO TDs - CK and him don't have chemistry, mainly because after supporting CK, VD found out he wasn't getting the ball enough and kind of whined and wanted Alex Smith back......
Delanie Walker also a TE not as good as VD but CK seems comfortable with him....I think the like to use him because he blocks better.....he is prone to turnovers
As far as the media is concerned....CK is going to magically get chemistry with VD.....he just hasn't used him much to this point and I don't get why the media doesn't see that.
could he hurt us yes....are we going to run exactly the same scheme....nope....Do I think he will get a lot of balls....perhaps early but I think they will abandon using him based on CK comfort factor.
4th Gore - Not better than Lynch in my book...provided we can stop him early, I expect they will abandon him...Another sure fire way to make them abandon Gore? Get in the endzone early and often....
5th - SF DEF is going to stop us....HMmmmmmm only one who can stop us is ourselves....we need to be in hurry up mode all day and tear them up with no huddles....sure our defense will tire....no huddle doesn't mean we can't run.....we just need to keep their defense scrambling.....Their defense gave up 34 points to NE 42 points to SEA, 31 points to GB (yes they beat NE and GB, but they got up big against NE....and it was tied in GB until the 3rd...) SEA got up...and never looked back....these guys are not built to come from behind and they simply don't have DBs that should give us fits all day.....
Our teams were very close in Points for and against...I think we gave up far less to WR than any team...that said point we did give up were on runs.....I honestly believe with all their hype (SF I mean) they are in for a rude awakening......Make no mistake WE are the HOTTEST team....if we don't get lazy in that game against SEATTLe and conservative we blow them out (which no one thought was possible) instead we earn a last second squeaker victory (which in my eyes is a good wake up call for our team....DON'T let up.....now you know why NE runs the score up and keeps running it up......WE SHOULD DO THE SAME!
If we play our game and do it for 60 minutes I expect a result more like the NYG game....that said....I hope we don't get to full of ourselves right before the Big Game! we saw how CAR took advantage of that!

Few random reasons we'll win:
Seattle was/is a better team at every vital position except WR and LB.
Somebody show me a QB who took his team to the SB with less that 10 career starts?
Everyone said Seattle would beat us because they were hot, but the 49ers are relatively cold
Kaepernick can't hold Wilson's jock strap as a QB

I agree with your points....but in the NFL A>B>C doesn't always apply.....
I could also say home field will help
NFC #1 have beaten Most #2 (I think only twice has #1 at home lost against number 2)
there are lots of reasons why we should win....but all sports peeps want to ignore those and ride CK's jock
