ROBBIE GOULD!!
I must've missed the part where the NFL rigged the game for the Packers.

They tried. Called penalties on SF both times their offense got into the red zone, but hard to do anything about a blocked punt.

7. 49ers get last in the NFC West (shouldn't be a hot take because they were last in 2020, but people like them for some reason)
To be fair to my past self, I was only one spot off. But clearly they're at least the second best team, even if they got 3rd in the regular season.

Quote
4. 49ers (7-10): The best injured reserve list of all time, except now there's a quarterback controversy. Woohoo!
Not much of a quarterback controversy.

Quote
Everyone knows what the definition of insanity is, that's how I feel when it comes to the 49ers. If you assume that nobody is going to injure even a hangnail all season, they MIGHT be like the 7th best team in the conference. Don't talk to me about how they were in the Super Bowl in 2019 - 1), they've lost several key pieces from that team, and 2), the NFC was terrible in 2019. Now you factor in how the Rams, Buccaneers, Packers, Seahawks, Cardinals, etc. have improved in that timeframe. So if the Niners went the entire year without a single injury, they would be like 7th. But, they have been one of the three most injured teams in the league for 3 of the last 4 seasons. That is not bad luck, that is a problem. It's anyone's guess as to whose fault it is. But it's not by chance.

Quote
Somehow the 49ers still have the T-12th best odds (+3500) to win the Super Bowl. At this point it's egregious. They're not good. Accept it. Their secondary stinks, their coach doesn't believe in their QB, nobody else on the team really believes in their QB, and their skill players are meh at best, except for Deebo Samuel and occasionally George Kittle. Oh, and the institutional injury problem that they seemingly refuse to address.

If I hear "they went to the Super Bowl two years ago" one more time I will annihilate my TV.

Quote
Every year a team is dubbed "the team no one wants to play in the postseason". This year, it was the Colts. (!) Until it was the 49ers. That title is earned by playing badly early on, and then stringing together wins down the stretch. For some reason, teams that run the ball well but can't throw it well consistently enough get bonus points. Don't ask, those are the rules I guess. So let's go back through a few years, and look at the teams who everyone was dreading to face:

2020: Ravens (11-5), lost divisional
2019: Titans (9-7), lost AFC Championship
2018 there were quite a few: Cowboys (10-6), lost divisional; Colts (10-6), lost divisional; Ravens (10-6), lost wild card
2017: Chiefs (10-6), lost wild card

One of those six made the conference title game. Those six had an average record of 10-6, and the Niners are 10-7. Five of the six were built the same way: run-heavy, can occasionally win games by throwing, but not often enough (the 2018 Colts being the exception). I'd say that's an accurate description of the Niners this year.

Contrast the 10-6 average of those teams to the average record of the last 8 Super Bowl teams, which is 12.5-3.5. The last 16 conference finalists are 12.25-3.75.

Conclusion: I'll bet my house on the Niners not making it past the divisional. I wouldn't be shocked if they beat the Cowboys though.
I'm now homeless  :-D.


Disaster for the Packers.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

They do tend to call a penalty when the running back stiff arms a defender using the defender's facemask.

What did I tell ya? NEVER trust the Packers in the playoffs, they always find a way to mess things up.

Something is seriously wrong in Green Bay.

That happens several times a game and I can't remember the last time it got called.

Several of the FOX personalities nailed it - I think both Terry & Howie predicted 49ers by 3 pregame (with Terry specifically mentioning a last-second FG), and then right out of the opening kickoff Joe & Troy agreed the game would likely come down to special teams.

Runner can place open hand on facemask for a stiff arm but cannot wrap fingers around it. Saw this called 3-4 times this season.

My good friend didn't take the money line, but bet a parlay on the spreads for both of the underdogs.

Visiting teams who have kicked a game winning field goal that was snapped with exactly 4 seconds left in a tie game this weekend:

- Bengals
- 49ers
- Rams

Lets see if the Bills can join the club

All right, which of these potential Super Bowl matchups would you like to see most (or, for that matter, least)?


Ranking most to least:

Bills vs Rams
Bills vs 49ers

Chiefs vs Rams
Chiefs vs 49ers
Bengals vs Rams
Bengals vs 49ers
Titans vs Rams
Titans vs 49ers
Bills vs Bucs
Chiefs vs Bucs
Bengals vs Bucs
Titans vs Bucs
Bills vs Packers
Chiefs vs Packers
Bengals vs Packers
Titans vs Packers


Fixed that for ya since the Bucs and the Bills are not going to the Superbowl.

Brady used to be able to come back from 27 or 28 to 3 and win :-)

Sure helped the Rams kept fumbling the ball at almost every opportunity to let Tampa back in the game.

NFL overtime rules are awful to not give both teams a chance to have the ball. That said, there's no excuse for giving up points when there are 13 seconds left. Bad decision not to squib kick on the kickoff and then horrible defensive alignment on the two plays after that.

Whoever won that game was going to be the favorite. Not saying the other teams can't win but those two are clearly better.

Shame that we can't get this as a Super Bowl matchup.
