You almost lost to GB, an 8 win team, with a bad defense, who lost even more guys on D as that game went on......that game in itself isn't showing that you are a dominant team on the road right now.
And Davis played last time....he had to "ice up, son" when he got knocked out. Also, if the refs (which none seem to be these days) were decent you only would have had 6 pts and not 9....bc Vernon Davis fumbled it.
As for them being hot and confident.....they were last time. Win streak, big points, great QB rating, etc. That didn't matter. Issue for you is Kapernick vs our D. Issue for your WR/TE talent is they have to depend on him vs this D
Don't forget about Gano"s uncharacteristic missed fg.
