Go Niners!!! This is the way it should be Niners vs. Seahawks for a trip to the SB. Backing up a bit I do think Boldin should've been flagged for his headbutt to that Panthers player. Not to mantion that couple plays later we had 12 men in the huddle the refs also missed that one. But it's funny that Panthers were complaining about that headbutt when they themselves tried to set a tone by bullying and playing chippy from the very first snap. Carolina defensive player makes a standard tackle they jump up and start barking, but when the Niners bark back Panthers start yelling for flags???? Typical Bully stuff.................enjoy the off season.

Go anyone but the Patriots now.

 

I like the other 3 remaining teams. I just can't wait to see Brady crying on the sidelines...again.

It was a very chippy game, but Carolina really carried that chippy-ness into the second half and their defense pretty much kept the ball away from Cam Newton. You can see plenty of the defense still yapping after making a play, getting a tackle, interrupting a pass play, etc, but the Niners, for the most part in the second half, stayed focused. That penalty against Skuta for sacking Newton was a bogus call and it brings in shades of the Ahmad Brooks-Drew Brees sack. Fortunately, it didn't affect the outcome of the game.

 

No doubt, Seattle will try to throw the Niners out of their game by doing a lot of that on-field banter. I think the pregame skirmish between Jimmy Graham and the Seahawks really put Graham off his game since he didn't have much going on for him on Saturday. Either way, this game has been anticipated for over a year now and even in preseason. Should be a good one. Go Niners!

I agree 100% with everything you said. I forgot about the Skuta flag. That might be the worst call of the year LOL. Im SO glad that didnt come back to bite us.

Keep in mind that Bill Polian had the rules of football changed to favor the offense more in 2005.  This really benefited the way Manning plays.  I have great respect for Manning and his skill set.  He really sees the defense.  But I do long for the days where defenses were not handcuffed.  I was a big fan of the Steelers in the '70s and the Montana 49rs, which had a great defense too.

You and me both. I think I'm in the vast minority, but I'm just as entertained watching a game that ends 13-6 with great defensive efforts as I am with watching a game that finishes 42-35 because the defenses didn't bother showing up.

I think they've got a decent shot against the Broncos, though I'd still bet on the Broncos because Peyton has more weapons.  Its going to be a shootout, that's for sure.  But I don't think Brady and Edelman can win a super bowl on their own.  The 49ers and Seahawks were 2 of the top 3 scoring defenses in the league.  

 

Remember that the Patriots haven't won in 10 years.  They're treated like royalty because they have Brady and keep making the playoffs out of a terribly weak division.  They won super bowls when their defense was ranked 6th, 1st, and 3rd.  This year they are ranked 10th (scoring) which isn't bad, but they're near the bottom in yards allowed.  Since 2004 they've had some amazing years offensively, particularly the year they lost to the Giants.  But even in this era of passing, you can't win the super bowl without a stout defense.

Let's leave that crap for the Jake Delhommes and the Andy Daltons of the league ... the ones that need every edge they can get.  Not the (arguably) best QB to ever play the game.

 

Come on, Manning, you are better than that.

 

--------------------------

 

And, for the record, I could be wrong about this.  I fully admit it's all speculation.  But this is the first time I've watched a game where every single time a defensive lineman flinched (even when they didn't cross the line) the offensive lineman "got fooled" into jumping up and tapping the offender on the head.  Heck, it could be the offensive line coach instructing them and Manning isn't even involved ... in which case I'll apologize to him next time I see him. ;)

 

He must be pretty darn good at it because, when Drew Brees tried it a few times in the Eagles/Saints game, they called it on Brees for drawing them offside.

 

On another note, I think the 49ers/Seahawks game has a chance to be a real nasty game. They don't like each other, both teams play with a chip on the shoulder and they both got their opponents flustered this weekend, especially the Panthers. Something's got to give.

Thanks.  I did not know that.

I've already listed the things about him that bug me (except for one - Papa John's pizza is disgusting and shame on him for promoting it) and mentioned that I admire how good he is.  However, I did not yet mention how funny I think he can be ...

Hmmm. I never met a pizza I didn't like.

LOL, I was going for the exact opposite.  Trying to lighten the mood so people don't stop reading and think "Oh great, now what is this a-hole complaining about?"

 

I clearly don't have as good comedic timing as, say ... Peyton Manning??? ;)
