In response to dfitzp's comment:
A few good things to take from this game. First Brady and Lloyd are finally starting to click, you could see it the last few weeks. When Gronk comes back, opposing defensive coordinators are going to have nightmares stopping this offense. Gronk and Hernandez hardly played together at all this year. It looks like we may be starting to get healthy for the playoffs.
Also the 49ers had 6 fumbles and only lost 1, and multiple times Kappernick bobbled the snap and regained control. They easily could have had 5 or more turnovers. They got extremely lucky in that regard. When the Pats fumbled the ball the niners capitalized. Also that interception by Aldon Smith was a fluke, the ball was perfectly thrown but Hernandez let it go through his hands and bounced around like a pinball.
A bad weather night such as last night favors a defensive minded football team. When I saw the weather forecast I knew the 49ers were loving it. If the weather had been dry last night I think we would be looking at a much different outcome.
I don't think the 49ers would like meeting the Pats in the Superbowl. I think a Patriots team with Gronk would easily win a rematch in better weather conditions. The 49ers played like a team with nothing to lose. They took chances and it payed off. The fake punt on 4th and 9, all the deep passes that were successful, and capitalizing on most turnovers and we still could have won that game.
Right. Before the game you guys were all calling for rain and snow. (A), still no run game. (B) still no D. (C) still equals losses.
How about I say if Justin Smith isn't injured the entire 2nd half or we don't go prevent OR we don't hand away 3 opportunities in the redzone then you guys get spanked 45-3 by mid 3rd Quarter.
Of course, I wouldn't use excuses. Up 41-31 with less than 2 minutes, I don't need any. You guys are by far the most arrogant fanbase in all of pro football. Guess we weren't "just like the Texans", were we?
You go right ahead and gloat tough guy but I bet the majority of your fans were peeing in their pants when Pats came back to tie it. I could feel the wind in Texas as you let out a collective sigh of relief when the D gave up that easy TD after our #2 corner and Spikes left the game but we won't make excuses either.
But if we do meet again, don't count on those 4 gifts they gave you and you can bet your probably large azz that it won't take TB 40 minutes to figure out your prolific D. He already has.
