    Re: Teams Getting Delusional

    Zzzzzz,,   Umm, thats why they play the games Crusty. I'll  be happy if we dont have to see either team in the postseason.  Dont be smug because our team is currently in a good place. Things change quick in this league so please leave your silly thoughts to yourself. I think weve lost enough SB's in the last 5 years to not get too excited in November... Go out and get some air buddy.  Its posts like this that lead people to believe you have NO life....

    Re: Teams Getting Delusional

    Players on both the Steelers and Ravens have gotten older, not necessarily worse. Ozzie has to start planning for life without Ray Lewis and Ed Reed (aka: the soul of a great defense) and basically prove his mettle as a GM (much like BB) by replacing crucial players in his  line-up (see pursuit of Hightower in  2012). The Steelers O Line can run block a little, but the pass blocking is below average thus Leftwich, Rapistburger and Batch get killed. Steelers have also had injuries to key defenders (Troy P. Woodley and others).  In a way I think both are either close to partilally rebuilding or are there already. Steelers also cut some LBs that were too old.

     

    I like to think of the Niners D as the one defense that is better than the Giants (who beat us last year). Thing about the Niners is, with a few exceptions, they are still a relatively young team that as you mentioned Neal/Rusty came within two ST bad plays of making it to the Super Bowl. Thing is if the have to face Hotlanta in a track meet (at the dome) they could lose. Atlanta`s D at home is woefully underated and Dimitroff has done a great job arquiring talent on both sides of the ball. Colin Kaepernick (sp) looks good now, but the playoffs are obviously a different animal entirely, especially in the NFC. I`d be curious to see what Harbaugh does after CK`s first loss. Big gamble if Harbaugh starts CK in the playoffs; reg season you can afford to make some mistakes; playoffs you can`t afford to make any.

    IMO both Houston and Atlanta have done nothing in the playoffs, but that could change this year if all the important players stay healthy.

    If CK does well in the playoffs does Smith become trade bait......

    If the 49ers win a playoff game, then Smith's tenure is done. He can't be too surprised since Harbaugh did pursue Peyton during the offseason.

    I don't know if there'd be a big trade market for him or the cap ramifications and all of that. But if he ends up moving on he'd be an improvement for a few teams, including the NYJ. Actually he'd be a huge improvement there.

    "It's comical how you call me smug when every single post I've had here for THREE years has been very accurate,"

    Hmm, well, you've been at least somewhat wrong about Brady, the running game and BJGE, as well as the defense. But hey - that leaves special teams! Oh and you've definitely been wrong about the Giants and Eli Manning. It's kind of scary when Jints fan has a better analysis of what makes our team formidable than you do. You were dead on right about the Jets though, dead on! 

    You used to be a lot of fun in the early years but then you got mean as a snake, I'm not sure why. Lots of demeaning name calling, which tends to point to weaknesses in your willingness to discuss positions rationally. 

    That said you do have quite a great deal of football know-how even when I disagree with your conclusions. I hope the Pats win it all this year, partially so you get in a better mood again. 

    By the way are you sure 1,000 posts in a month is a good idea? Quality over quantity might be another option....

    As far as the Ravens, I take their team seriously. They gave us all we could handle last year and are worthy of some respect as opponents, even though I can't stand a lot of their players. They have gotten some lucky bounces to be sure, but whether or not Ray plays, they are a serious foe. The Steelers on the other hand....well yeah they look a little delusional right now. That said I hope the Ravens kick them when they are down.

    I'm not really sure what this thread is about, but I'd venture to guess that it's about how any team that doesn't win the Super Bowl this year are poor "team builders". Unless of course it's us - then it's just Brady's fault. Sound right?

    I wonder how some of these "delusional teams" would fair with Tom Brady on their roster? I don't think they would be so delusional after that. I don't think they would be wondering about the lack of depth behind their starters or how their defense only has like 6 name players. It makes me laugh when people forget or pretend to know why we win so much...when Tom is gone they will find out and you won't be hearing from them any longer. 

    Sports Illustrated had a piece this week on how stability at the QB position correlates to wins...it read like a clinic of the top QB's over the last 13 years...1. Patriots Brady 2. Colts Manning 3. Pittsburgh Rothlisburger 4. Green Bay Favre/Rodgers

    There are plenty of teams that have had good drafts and good free agency periods over the last ten years only to see it go up in flames because they don't have a QB like Brady, Rodgers or Manning. It's sad but true...the GM gets fired, the coach gets fired and the fans leave for a bit. In a place like NE all of our employees get promoted into other franchises and go on to bomb without the aid of a great QB (Pioli is the latest guy that road the coat tails of Brady into fame and fortune).  Think KC is wondering why they gave this guy the keys to the city? Pioli can't even walk the streets there anymore without a police escort...if he had Brady he would be running for Mayor.

    Re: Teams Getting Delusional

    Are we certain it is the "teams" that are dillusional?  This type of talk seems to come from the fan base, not the players.  But, this makes for good fodder, especially for out of town posters to poke fun at Pats fans, right Jints?
