what 49er fans are saying

463 posts in this topic

I've been reading random 49er forums and I've found a lot of their fans are as nervous about playing us as we are about playing them.  Of course there are the "hurr durr we're gonna beat them by 400" fans...but we have those too.

 

For my part I'm glad we've made enough progress from last year to this year that other teams are nervous about playing us.  We've done enough to make anyone a little uneasy and if we play like we're capable of playing that won't change this Sunday.

Truly one of the cockiest fan bases in the whole league.

They are right now. You didn't hear a peep out of them in 2010 when we played.

You're just going to the wrong 49ers messageboard. Go the the 49ers.com forum. Plenty of us are nervous about this game. I just posted all the reasons this will be a tough, even game.

Look at our oline and you'll see why I'm worried. We are down two RGs and our backup tackle is playing guard. We are razor thin now and getting ready to face a beast dline.

 

Understandable, but our DLine has been decimated as well. Our starting NT went on the IR at the beginning of the season, and our backup is dealing with a hanstring issue. Also, we've got a rookie playing for Aldon. He's (Corey Lemonier) played admirably, but is still a rookie. Justin Smith is getting old, and Ray McDonald is playing with a torn bicep muscle. An injury that usually lands you on the IR, but he's gutting it out because it's supposedly a "minor" tear. If Aldon plays, it's a huge boost, but we aren't healthy either.

 

Plus, we always struggle with running QBs.

collective 9ers fanbase seems to believe they will put 30-40 up on us.

 

Thats what blowing out the Jaguars will do to your confidence

A fresh Aldon Smith is major trouble for our tackles IMO

No doubt.

 

 

Hopefully we get some screens in there and quick hits for Cam.

 

 

It's gonna be huge having Stewart back in the mix.  He is such a bruiser.

#32 in pass offense..

 

#1 in rushing, ok, but that meets our #2 run defense.

 

 

 

If we get up on them their "rushing" isn't going to do sshit.

I'm not sure? I've been a member since its inception so that could be the case.

 

 

Here, I'll quote some of us over there who are the more rational fans:

 

 

Ok, I wanna here everybody's score prediction and winner. Here is mine...

Carolina is on a roll, they are the best team we have played since Indy. Their Defense is for real and Cam Newton is playing quite well. I just have a bad feeling about this game. I don't like that it's sandwiched in between the Saints game. I know we are getting Manningham back and most likely Aldon. I just have a bad feeling about this game....

Sadly

Panthers 24

But I hope I'm wrong

What say you?

 

 

Our next two games definitely make me jittery. Carolina is playing very well and their defense is quite legit. I really hope we punch them in the mouth with our running game and VD tears them up through the air. I think it'll be a very interesting matchup since we've been playing some not-so-great teams lately. I still think we can take it 30-20.

 

 

it's going to be a tough game... we need to be focused... but we are the better team. Just need to show up and execute.

 

 

No doubt they will be fired up to start this game and will give us their best game. This is a game they have to win to be taken seriously. This is a scary game for that reason. I think it is a close game into the fourth quarter but we win by two scores when Cam throws a pick and gets tight. They are heading in the right direction and are looking like a potential wild card but I don't think they are ready for these big games yet. This should be the fox game of the week I think.

 

 

I don't think this game is going to be a easy as some people think, however I don't expect this will be a Tampa Bay vs Seattle first half blow out either.

 

 

It will be a close game for most. Our defense will keep it close for ~2.5-3 qtrs. We make second half adjustments, sustain longer drives and start to pull away.

If Roman calls a smart/sensible game behind the strength of our OL and run blocking we win this one by at least a TD. If Roman brain farts like he did against IND, we will lose this game by at least a TD.

I don't see CAR man handling us and beating us up in 1-1 match-ups like SEA did. We should have an edge in that regard.

Key stats (as they re every week) are time of possession and turnovers.
