To get a feel for how San Francisco 49er fans view the upcoming matchup, I visited a 49ers message board for enlightenment.
Considering the physical beating the Panthers administered just a few weeks ago, one might assume the 49ers fans to be a humble group.
Not the case.
Here are a few pearls of wisdom from their fan base.
7 wins in a row going into Carolina with a healthy Crabtree and Vernon Davis back, sounds like the roles are reversed from earlier this season, feeling very confident about this one, that were the hottest team in football and I think cam gonna choke considering this his very first playoff game
Crabtree had a good game against Green Bay, but what receivers don't? The Panthers have faced, and beaten, high powered offenses all season at home. This is nothing new for them.
Carolina's crowd is pretty meek compared to Lambeau, you score up twice in the first quarter and the stadium gets quiet (ala Philly).
Statistically, Kap's efficiency rating on the road during both the regular season and post-season trumps that of any young QB remaining in the playoffs (kid has earned his stripes). Cam Newton is the only intangible as this is his first playoff game.
Carolina's crowd has been impressive this year. This is the first playoff game since 2008. It will be 90% Panthers fans and extremely loud.
pantlers have a over rated defense, kaep is gonna have a easy day
I'm not sure who the Pantlers are.
The p*ssycats may have won last time, but they didn't beat us. Roman / Kap helped us lose that game more than anything. This time should be different...
Ah yes, the very same sad sentiment Kaepernick had during his post game after being harassed and beaten by the Panthers. Kaep gave zero credit to the Panthers dominating defense, only suggested they 49ers beat themselves.
Overall, the 49ers fans this season were some of the most worthless to visit the huddle. After a week of less than stellar football talk, none returned after they were beaten.
I expect the same over the next week.
