Who in the NFC concerns you?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; its tv entertainment. Nothing is frightening about it. Niners are the only team that matters in the nfc this year...

No one. I mean it.

JP - this is a mentally tough & battle tested team. One guy goes down, the next man picks up the slack and does his job. We play good/exceptional special teams (1/3 of where games are won), have a SMOTHERING defense. Guys fly to the ball, not a lot of arm tackling, textbook technique (see rookie CJG) & they are taking the ball away like animals. Offensively, we find different ways to beat you. Running, passing etc ... good coaching.

At some point in the season, I bet we have Brees/2 Glove Teddy & Taysom Hill line up for a "trick" play. What the hell is a defense gonna do?
That freight train (Latavius Murray) is a force. Notice how mid way in the 3rd quarter, those Bears didn't really want to tackle that dude. We got a back to wear defenses out late.

IMO this team is shaping up to be a Juggernaut for 2019.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?

Panthers are sticking around, they concern me.

Top 5 Defense and Allen is a ton better than Newton already. What made Newton so good to play against was his indecisiveness, Allen gets the ball out quick and is yet to throw an INT.

They mostly concern me because we played our entire starting D in week 17 last year and Kyle Allen destroyed them. Just before the playoffs started.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?

Yeah Carolina concerns me too cause they are divisional.

It also fits their incredibly unpredictable track record as a team. They are the one team who will make the playoffs, then have a down year and go back to the playoffs. They were off to a great start last year until Newton's injury.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?

We're somewhat in the same situation as in 2013. Of course, our defense is much better. Our offense is also a little better. But we find ourselves competing with the NFC West, playing the NFC West, and having the Panthers breathing down our necks.

The first team I'm worried about is Carolina because winning our division is important. The second team I'm worried about is whoever wins the NFC West and that will be SF or LA.

I think we all know had we won the NFC South in 2013 we would have gone to Seattle in the NFCCG. Carolina wasn't winning in Philadelphia.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?

This season feels nothing like 2013.

The 2013 team was fools gold. They would win at home and put up epic blow outs, then go on the road and struggle to score 20 points. That was a true Jekyll and Hyde team. The 2013 team went into St. Louis and Seattle and looked horrible in both of those games. We struggled in every road game that year and it's definitely not the case this year.

We're kicking ass on the road this year and when are forced to grind out games defensively, we're doing it with success.

I was never confident in 2013 due to how bad we looked in road games and the fact Seattle was running away with the #1 seed pretty early on.

LOL Kyle Shanahan still hasn't learned from the SB loss in Atlanta.

Up 27-3, still passing, get sacked in the end zone and give up a safety.
