What happened to all of our new friends?

63 posts in this topic

Just curious...but what happened to all the new 49er fans we had made in the two weeks leading up to the big game? I am not trying to be a smart a** but I actually enjoyed talking to Marvin 49 and a few others about football and the games themselves.

There is a huge drum circle made up of Colts, Broncos, Pats, & 49ers fans that is forming in the midwest.

Eric Cartman has been dispersed to the area and has a game plan..........

Know what I just noticed? Jim never said anything like "John's the best coach I know. The best coach in the NFL." On the other hand? Yes, John has been saying these things pretty often

That's not true. I remember Jim saying on media day that he's "half the coach he (John) is, and even that is generous".

Same thing that happened to the Denver and New England fans who were on here smack talkin. After we beat them they obviously threw their computer at the wall cried for a few hours and are making mock drafts of their teams draftin leon sandcastle to give them the edge next year.

They are still whining along with Jimmy Harbs and Frank Gore that they were better team!
[/quote]
The media overrated the hell out of SF's offense, they made Kaepernick out to be the second coming of Johnny Unitas. He played against Greenbays old tattered beat up defense, and Atlanta's old sloppy defense. Both defenses were very average and not very stout, yet the media looked at it like Kaepernick just played the Steelers or the Seahawks or a good defense. We had to beat 2 of the top teams in the NFL including Denvers very good defense and we won with a dominating offensive production. WE were ready for them, they werent ready for us, and we all know as fans even our own defense wasnt as good as the top defenses around the league this year due to injurys. But we still dominated Kaepernick and shutdown their offense aside from some garbage time stats where they made it a close game in the end. And yes the Ravens are already deemed underdogs for next years super bowl no surprise...just fuel for the fire that will help to get us back there.

Flacco had one of the best posteasons ever

No INTS
Tied Montana's record
Got to the SB
Won it
Won the MVP
Earned Himself $100 Mil

It takes a long time for players to get over knee injuries, torn triceps, torn achilles, torn biceps, cracked ribs etc. We were healthier than we were all season...but still very much gimping around.

Ahhh, slipping in some trolling? Healthy meaning MOST players are on the field. More like the walking wounded... it's all good though, It doesn't really matter.

Yea, Kaep started to look good after Ngata left the game, Pollard sustained six fractured ribs, and Reed sprained his MCL.

Plus the lights went out for more game planning.

Theres a difference between a healthy team and the majority of starters being on the field.

That defense was truly the walking wounded.

Pollard- 6 cracked ribs
Lewis- torn tricep
Suggs- torn bicep, recovering achilles tear
Ellerbe- needed ankle cortisone shots to play
Ngata- sprained MCL and sprained shoulder since about week 3
Webb- torn ACL
McClain- spinal cord contusion
Reed- sprained MCL in Super Bowl

Yet outside of Webb and McClain they all played.

He only needed the equivalent of 70 30 second time outs to get his head back on straight. They were done and he was confused and rattled. They should be thanking whoever or whatever caused that power outage since it kept them from getting embarrassed.

Let's not try to undermine what an amazing job Kaepernick has done. Maybe those defense aren't very good, but a guy with 8 - 9 starts in the league has no business playing the way he did in the postseason.
Kaepernick earned the praise he got with some amazing performances of his own. In the end, he gave Flacco and our defense all it could handle.

just a great season and a great playoff run

beat my Coats in the first round
took out that big crybaby Manning
Mr. Softy Brady
and won the big one against a very tough Niners squad

nothing but respect for the entire organization, and really happy for the fans, I used to be a Baltimore fan (Coats)

great way to finish Ray!

It was fun following this story with Ray, it gave me something to follow after the Coats lost.

No weapons! but 2 Rings!

I think beating the Colts was awesome, especially since we've struggled against the Manning Colts in the past. But the only thing that would've made this playoff run even sweeter would've been knocking out the Steelers instead of the Colts.

But even without the Steelers this run was epic with the shear fact that we knocked out Manning & Brady plus two of the best defenses in the league.

Flacco was unreal, we hear about this Elite label all the time, but the truth is, Manning never came close to these numbers in the playoffs

He is humble and just a good guy

I hear that. I know those games against the Steelers are huge and those wins never get old. I hate them as much as your city.

Enjoy that title, hell of a year!

I'll be honest. If my team had just lost the Super Bowl, I don't know how willing I'd be to talk to fans of the other team. At least not for a few weeks.

We got ran over by RG3 during the regular season!I was nervous about the 49ers matchup....but we got it together in the red zone. I know our defense learns fast...but it took us a while to stop Big Ben. Glad we figured out the read option fast which was basically punch them fools in the mouth until the finesse falls off.

Let's also not completely ignore the fact that he was rattled and confused. The kid was done but received a blessing in 34 minutes to calm his nerves and get his head back together.

I like the kid. I think he's going to be successful for years to come but I'm also not willing to discount the 70 extra time outs the 49ers received to get their feet back under them. No power outage, different game.

[/quote]I strongly believe (and this is just my opinion) but the reason why he was "in awe" of the 49ers was not only because he played for them (he played for us as well remember) ..... he wanted to remain the only QB in Raven history to win a Superbowl. he didn't want another Raven QB and team hoisting that trophy. I watched the post game interview with him and they said dilfer had "gotten emotional and was crying" after we won. and the fact when he was in the Americas game segament .. he said " I still think that to this day, we would have won been back , there's no question in my mind....and since they got released me. they have yet to be back" or something like that (not exact words but the jist was it)

What's funny is the lock step type attitude they brought with them like they were coming back no matter the outcome.... LOL , like people here believed them. I guess they thought we we smoking the same stuff as many of the national pundents that stated the 9er's, Pats and Bronco's were better.

Usually peeps that register on another teams board are there for taunting purposes only.

They were the healthiest in that we had the most starters on the field since the season started. But, all of our key contributors were noticeably hobbled and hurt.

I feel the same way. Gore had 48 yards rushing 1/3 the way through the 3rd quarter, Kaepernick had no yards rushing at the time if I remember correctly and the 49ers had only been to the redzone twice, both stopped for field goals.

Not a doubt in my mind that the 49ers get something going in the game, but if there's no power outage in that game I think we lay a bit of a licking on them. We force the 3 and out right after Jones KR for a TD happens and the 49ers are completely demoralized. Instead they get nearly 40 minutes to catch their breath, calm everything down, and simplify things.
