I was thinking this watching the game last Sunday as Murray was pounding the ball. Just keep doing it. That will pay off neighborhood of the 4th quarter. I love to see us taking it to people on the ground.

Re: 49ers are scary good

Figured Id break down the 49ers being scary good idea:

Defensively they are good.


49ers Scoring on opponents: Offensively they are average at best. Other than Washington and Carolina they put up points near what those teams average having scored on them.

TB 31 (Averages 30.3)(2-5)
CIN 17 (Averages 26.2)(0-8)
PIT 24 (Averages 20.7)(3-4)
CLE 31 (Averages 25.9)(2-5)
LA 20 (Averages 21.8)(5-3)
WAS 9 (Averages 24.4)(1-7)
CAR 51 (Averages 26.3)(4-3)

Re: 49ers are scary good

49ers kind of remind me of the 2019 Bears. Very good defensively however question mark at QB. Jimmy Garoppolo doesn't exactly strike "fear" on secondaries.

The next five games should be telling. AZ won't be a cakewalk tomorrow either. I could see Patrick Peterson baiting Jimmy into forcing a mistake.

At some point this season, he'll have to win a game with his arm & I'm not convinced he's that dude.

Undefeated. Three deep at RB with speed. Great TE. Super great DL that attacks. Good kicker. Good CB's. Game managing QB with skills. Below average WR's. Easy schedule so far. Look to possibly be a year away. Jury is way out.

Re: 49ers are scary good

The 49ers offense will be their undoing.

They are built very similar to the early 2000s Patriots teams that won 3 SBs. Even on defense they are built like that team.

Brady was a game manager at best before he got elevated to the level of OMG TOM BRADY GOAT RINGZ RINGZ RINGZ, which was largely thanks to Wes Welker, Randy Moss and later the other lethal play makers they had on offense. Jimmy G looks just like Brady from back then, but even more mediocre.

Kyle Shanahan is still the guy who blew a 28-3 lead in the SB and didn't learn anything from it. You saw Sunday how he was still passing up 27-3, leading to a safety and Carolina scoring a TD after that. Had that been a competent team and not the Panthers, they would've got back into that game.

I was never sold on Jimmy G and still ain't.

And yes they play an easy schedule, so does Green Bay. The Packers should have 2 losses, if not for the refs doing everything they possibly could to bail golden boy Rodgers out at home.

GB and SF both are going through cupcakes. The only difference is that SF is flattening their opponents while GB is barely squeaking by most of them.

I still expect the Niners to finish 12-4 and win the NFC West.

I'm not sold on Seattle being some big opponent for them. The Seahawks have struggled to beat crappy teams, the same ones that the Niners are dominating. Seattle has been destroyed by the only 2 decent teams they've played all year; us and Baltimore, both at home. We led by 20 on them and pretty much blew them out, as did the Ravens.

Our match with them will most likely decide the #1 seed.

I am absolutely not sold on Green Bay at all and they worry me cause if there is one team that benefits from calls and ref bias in the post season, it's the team with that douchebag golden boy Rodgers. Seriously, go back to 2016 and count all the calls that went their way in that playoff run. FFS they called back a Rodgers INT on their final drive vs Dallas to keep them alive and pull that game out. Refs couldn't help them vs Atlanta cause they finally faced a decent team. The NFL would do anything for a Patriots/Packers SB, even if it meant GB gets their skulls crushed (as they would). I'm kinda hoping Minnesota is for real and steals that division from them, and then we can get a Vikings/Saints rematch at the dome and erase the Minnesota Miracle by redeeming ourselves.

I don't buy AZ testing them. Kingsburry is way in over his head as a coach and Murray will probably have a meltdown game against that defense.

They win games like the Bears though, and even the Pats this year - inept QB play don't matter when your defense generates a bunch of turnovers and completely shuts down opposing offenses. The Broncos won a SB with that style of play.

Re: 49ers are scary good

USA Today Computer NFL Rankings...

Patriots have the 32 easiest schedule and have the 49ers have the 31 easiest schedule. Saints are rated #4 in the power pole with the 12th hardest schedule.

Interesting information as long as you don't actually look at the games.

Saints and 49ers have switched 80s rolls. We have the West Coast Offense and they have the Great Defense.

They won't win in New Orleans without turnovers.

Re: 49ers are scary good

Kingsbury is such an idiot of a coach.

Missed the game cause my wife and I had trick or treaters. Watched the highlights this morning.

The Cards stop the Niners at 4th and goal before the half, but Kingsbury called a timeout. Niners get another chance and get it this time. That one screw up came back to haunt them as they made a comeback.

Kingsbury is a bad head coach but good OC...

As far as coaches holding their team back this year, I have to say that Kingbury and Kitchens take the cake. They both have talented teams but seem to make awful decisions that cost the team.
