In response to Casportsfan's comment:
Of all the sports fans anywhere, you guys in Boston are lauded as the most knowledgeable and intelligent. Yet time after time you guys display a complete lack of knowledge not only about your opponent, but about your own team.
Didn't Brady throw 6 tds V the Broncos in the playoffs last YR? How did he do the next game? Didn't Brady put up 45 V the Jets in 2010? How did he do the next time they met? I could go on and on here. But it does not matter. Selective memory seems to work great for you guys, but it's not an accurate reflection of reality.
Since 2011 the 49er D has faced some great QBs playing on top 5 Offenses. Not only have they beaten the majority of those teams, but in most cases they've completely dominated the O for most of the game.
To suggest a 2 score victory not only severely, severely overestimates your defense, but it severely overestimates your O. I mean, give me a FN break with that D. It's playing better, but it's still a medicore middle of the road unti that's given up nearly 30 points to crap O's like the Jets and Bills. Let's get some perspective for god sakes.
Congratulations on being the most arrogant, overembelishing fanbase in the NFL. I see you refuse to relinquish the title you earned in 2007.
Up early this morning, are we, 49ers troll?
I seem to remember the Giants walking into Candleshit and the Giants balance on offense causing all kinds of problems for the 49ers.
Throw in the fact you have a paperneck rookie QB vs Bill Belichick's rising D at HOME in bad weather, and it's not the best recipe for YOU to be so arrogant on our thread on a Pats board.
This is sort of why west coast fans get a bad rap. You think you can lecture intelligent fans/better fans. We don't go surfing or go to Napa/Sonoma on Sundays. We're not indifferent in support of our teams. Our fans sell out arenas and stadiums continually, etc.
Please do not lecture.
SF has a very good team and it will be a good game. I just heard that Carlos Rogers will be on Welker. That's a mistake. Mark my words. With conditions wet, this gives Welker and advantage on the older Rogers. Rogers has length and size which is a disadvantage on Welker. This also means SF is plannign on playing mostly man, which is also a mistake telling NE's offense what they intend on doing.
NE will contain Gore, bracket Davis and bottle up Kapernick. The Pistol is nothing more than the Wildcat. BB has his D knowing how to take out the Wildcat/Pistol. Gimmicks that we've all seen before don't work, especially against a BB D.
Expect problems, 49ers troll. Congratulations on being arrogant, coming to OUR board in OUR game thread acting like you aren't acting arrogant and entitled, jealous of what NE has earned through the years and seeks to earn in 2012.
Arrogant? I've consistently stated it will be close. NO ONE on SfGate.com has predicted a Niner blowout. TONS of people on your website have predicted a Pats' blowout. If that's not the pot calling the kettle black then I don't know what is.
Your comment about our QB is typical. Be honest; you don't know a thing about him. At all. If you want to make assumptions based upon national perception, fine. But just admit that you're doing so. The truth is that he's been extremely accurate, has a big arm, and he's only turned the ball over twice in 5 games. Despite all of that, I've read people on your website compare him to Tim Tebow and call him a "rookie". Your fans literally don't even know that he was drafted in 2011.
I expect a close game. What I don't expect is Pats' D "domination" or O "domination". 2 of the teams from our division have already done a pretty good job of holding your O down. Our D is better than both of those Ds. So we'll see what happens once the ball is snapped later on today.
