49ers are scary good

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I just watched them roll the Pansies. I hate the Panthers but they're not a bad team. 9ers made them look like a terrible team. XLIV CHAMPS...

Re: 49ers are scary good

The 72ers really aren't that good, offensively. I don't know what happened to the Panthers. It's like they prepped for the wrong team and were surprised that the 57ers wanted to run the ball.

I'm not too worried about them. Their defense is real. But the Saints can score 20-24 points on them, and that should get it done.

But are the Panthers really a good team? They beat up on cupcakes for the past 4 weeks. Arizona, Houston, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay - none of them are contenders.

I just remembered though; they're not called the Patriots so I guess their win streak against bad teams don't count. When the Pats beat the living hell out of crap teams, it's talked about non-stop as the only reason they're any good. People will beat that drum constantly blaming the AFC East on why they're good, even though New England is usually dominant and destroys those teams. Carolina didn't even look that good in most of those wins. They got 5 INTs on Winston and still let Tampa back into that game.

The only "decent" team they beat is Houston who are overrated every year. Even if the Texans do make the playoffs, they're a one and done team.

The Niners offense is definitely suspect. I second this, cause I'm not sold on Jimmy G who is just a mediocre game manager. Shanahan is also the genius who blew the 28-3 lead in the SB.

Even their defense was gashed today by McCaffrey.

Re: 49ers are scary good

Good thing that match will be in the Superdome. It will likely decide the #1 seed.

I firmly believe that one of the two between SF and GB will be one and done in the playoffs. The Packers do not scare me as much as the Niners do.

I don't think the Panthers are all that good, no. Just ok.

I don't know why you brought up the Patriots in an unrelated topic. The Patriots have all of those Super wins and appearances, so they are, as much as I hate to say it, the gold standard. But their regular seasons ARE far less stressful than anyone else's, because they play in an absolutely historically bad division. That has nothing to do with anything, though.

So did the Colts during Manning's prime.

And so do Green Bay and Kansas City - the teams with the most first round playoff exits at home in the last decade. Something that New England don't have despite it being hammered on and on how bad the AFC East is. They don't struggle in the playoffs like GB and KC have after wrapping up an easy division title against cupcakes.

I brought this up about the Pats, cause it does get thrown around any time they are discussed... but any other team beating up on crap opponents, some how gets a free pass for it.

Carolina beat 4 weak teams in their win streak and they didn't look all that impressive against them. I worry about them cause they are a divisional opponent for us.

To be fair here, I think the 49ers also have an easy schedule this year, but they're blowing those teams out in contrast to Seattle who has struggled in 5 of their 6 wins now against trash teams.

It's a good team's job to completely stomp the trash teams into the ground. The Patriots, Saints and 49ers are doing it. When a team barely scrapes by against a trash team like Seattle is doing and like Carolina has done, it raises questions of how good they truly are.

They have the Cards TWICE, Seahawks, Packers and Ravens all before playing the Saints. Mostly playoff caliber teams.

A bit pre mature for #1 seed talk.

Oh and the Saints can beat the Niners at their place too.

Re: 49ers are scary good

They don't scare me, they haven't been tested yet most of their wins are by bad teams and they beat up a rookie today. I know in the past the book has been we need homefield advantage to go to the big dance, this year I don't think it applies. I'm not scared to go to SF let's win our division and go from there.
