    I know that most of you don't want the Niners to win the SB this year, and I understand that since there is an obvious huge rivalry developing between our teams. So all I can say is thanks for having me here, and I look forward to talking with you guys about football. :)


    Welcome! I live in the bay area, and obviously the vast majority of my friends are Niner fans, and they're all good, knowledgeable football people. It's too bad more people like them (and you) don't make themselves known. Hope you'll find a home here!

    Agreed. So lets change the subject shall we? :)

    What is your guy's opinion in regards to the Cards and Rams since it was brought up above? I do post on the Cards MB with the same respect I have been doing here so far, but have never really had an interest in posting on the Rams MB yet. Perhaps I just consider you guys and the cards more of our rivals than the Rams, despite how our 2 games against them turned out this year. Maybe my opinion of the rams will change next year.

  • Not changing the subject (sorry) :)

    I disagree that Kaepernick is one-dimensional. He is great in the pocket, goes through the reads etc. He is great on the run - faster than RW. He is NOT good at throwing the ball when scrambling / running around. Can't remember the QBR for inside / outside the pocket but there was a dramatic difference.

    The most interesting thing will be how he goes through reading the defenses next year when they will have adjusted somewhat to the read option plays. But he may have a superbowl ring on his finger then and will get at least a 2 year grace period to figure it out.....

    RW is not as fast but I think smarter at reading the defenses and puts in more time, he is better at throwing the ball on the run and at least as good when standing in the pocket. I think long-term RW's style of football will survive because the root of it is more like Big Ben where it is hard to get him down (not because four guys are hanging onto him but because four guys just missed him) and then suddenly he zips it for 50 yards down the field. This is different from any other current qb with this style as he is smart enough to properly read defenses. If Vick knew how to read defenses he would have a few MVP's in the closet.....

    Either way agree that it will be fun to watch for the next few years. I said it before the second game and I say it now. I do think Kaepernick's style is better for the Seahawks than AS.....but we shall see over the next few years

    Rams -- I think they are definately getting better and adding Ryan to the defensive side and having Fisher there will make them brutal to deal with

    Cards - I will let you know once we see who their qb is. I think they are at least 2 years away from being truly competitive as the offense needs more than just a qb and I am not sure that Arians is the right coach for this division

  • Well fans and a whole lot of bandwagoneers will be jumping on Seahawks, Rams, 49ers teams this year, Rams are resurgeing under Fisher and will not be going away anytime soon. He will keep them competitive and physical. The Cards are unless I'm off my rocker doomed for a while, nobody here can tell for sure how Arians is going to work out, but losing Horton hurts.

    I think the fire is basically back in the west as I stated and our records won't be without blemish only due to us beating each other up, nobody is gonna wanna fly over the Rockies to see any teams here for a while. I am waiting for the unfair advantage statements from rivals to pop up with every loss here soon.

    I joined the Cards boards awhile ago, but its a sad place. Not quite as sad as the Rams board. Maybe the Rams board will get better as they get better.

    This board has always been fun for me to discuss football and get into fun little arguments. But message boards do not reflect the fanbase as most never go to them. All boards attract trolls, its the nature of things.

    Plus the Niners and Seahawks are the two best teams in the division and have a nice rivalry going. And of course we would "fear" the seahawks more than the other two teams, the Seahawks are better. ALthough next year should be interesting because the Rams "should" be better.

    If the 9ers weren't in the superbowl, this guy wouldn't of came to our forum. I guarantee you that...He wants to come here, and have all of us think he is classy...but really he is just gloating...even if its not verbally

  • This guy started a thread to rub in the fact the 9ers are going to the SB.

    Can't wait until they lose next week so we can stop seeing them create nonsense threads.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • 49ers fans. What do you think of Kaepernick's long throwing motion? Sure he seems to get it out quick enough by the long movements I think would telegraph where he's going with the ball. Do you beleive that is a major issue?

    Here's the think with Kaepernick- Can't stand the guy because I was seeing him beat my beloved Idaho Vandals for 4 years. I think he's a good QB, but I also think he's getting a little too much love for the national media. He has a big game against GB (and Chicago- he's also had a number of stinker's like the Rams and Seahawks games.) and all the media are worshipping the guy. THe Kaepernicking thing is ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is him trying to "trademark" the pose, despite it being far from original.

    I lived in Baltimore for a few years, so I'm abliged to root for them over the 49ers (who were my childhood team). I think it will be a close game, Baltimore has a playing big when it matters this year, If Flacco plays well like has in the playoffs I think they'll win.

    Might also be the two best teams next season.

    Actually, I have been trying to register on this site for over a year and was finally able to get approved yesterday after multiple attempts.

    Pretty sure we didn't make it to the SB last year. ;)

    Thanks man! It is unfortunate that fans of every team choose to troll opposing team's boards and try to represent the entire fan base. I wish that people on MB's realized that they shouldn't allow the small percentage of fans who come on here negatively decide their opinion of everyone. The Seahawks fans that I know in real life are all great people. Some are family members of mine.

    My brother is a Seahawks fan and we have conversations all the time about our two teams. He makes valid points occasionally about the Hawks that I end up agreeing with, and vice versa. He is also a new member on here.

  • We have a few Niner fans that have been here a while and are welcome. I think the ones that get us the most are obviously ones that are living in the past and can't wait to remind us they have won 5 SBs (during the times when even I was a Niner fan. Being in the service in a town can do that to ya) But those were won before most of those posters were born, lol.

    Anyway if you're one of the ones that wind up staying, great. At least I won't look like a complete fool for approving you. hahahahaha

    And btw, welcome to Seahawks.net.

    :les:

    One more thing,,,,we have people here who will never allow themselves to see the difference between talking football and not talking to people of other faiths, in this case Seahawks versus hard rock miners. lol

    But we ask you be patient with them as well. Perhaps someday someone will erase their fears of catching some disease from a fan of another team. :D

    I have a feeling that we will probably have a snickering but respectful relationship on here. And BTW...on NFLN "Playbook" is on and even the coach that won the last Ravens SB Brian Billick just got through explaining how great Kaepernick is at going through his progressions. ;)

    Which rookie mistakes are you referring to?

    I gotta say, for a Niner fan to actually succeed at NOT being the typical attention seeking troll, you have to establish yourself over time. That means proving you are different. As a Niner fan, you are guilty until you prove innocence. Few have actually succeeded.

    I see no reason why we need to get all bent out of shape over a 9er fan. You guys won the NFCW and we didn't. You guys have a great QB in Smith so it's no surprise you got the jump on us in 2012. Nobody "knew" Wilson would progress so fast. I had very low expectations for the Seahawks this year. Our last QB, Jackson, and O-line pretty much sucked. Flynn looked like he had promise but there were so many components that had not been game proven. Somehow we(Carroll and Schneider) saw something in several players that completely eluded 31 teams. More than that several of these raw guesses that in any normal season would have all pretty much washed out turned into a bus load of Cinderella's.

    Not only THAT but Carroll had the guts to take his fantasy premonitions out on the field. He not only had unjustified faith in his dream players but he made them prove his faith. They did not dissappoint. The wild speculation almost all paid off. The GM and Coach put a few nickles in a slot machine and won the jackpot. Each nickle paid off huge.

    Now we are not just even with the Niners..we beat the crap out of your team.

    NOBODY not living in a mental institution could have made that call in 2011.

    BUT now it is reality. Somehow Pete and John made lemonade out of lemon peels and we will probably take the NFCW for several years to come even though the 9ers are playing deservedly in the Super Bowl.

    If the Seahawks get home field advantage it may be a long time before we give up multiple shots at the championship of the NFL.

    We were lucky. Now we are good..so good that it doesn't matter what you might care to say in the way of an insult. So as far as THIS fan is concerned...relax and be yourself.

    And Welcome.

  • I agree with a lot of that. Frankly, my expectations for this season were for the Niners to win the division and probably make the Super Bowl. My wildcard was the Giants.

    I simply expected the Hawks to have a winning season, possibly make a wildcard spot and that was about it.

    The Niners are right where I thought they would be, I even thought they would regress slightly in the W/L column and they did. I did not expect to see CK playing as the starter and I certainly didn't expect Harbaugh to get away from Run-run-pass/Akers/defense.

    I think the Niners are basically as good as they were last year, but in a different way. I do think their defense is not what it was, but that the offense has made up for that.

    The real surprise was the Hawks. Looking at the schedule, I had them at 9-7, especially after Carroll started Wilson. The record ended up being close, but HOW they did it was the real gift. I thought it would be like the Niners of 2011 and instead, it was just Seahawks of 2012. An offense that can figure out a way to score points in any situation against any defense. This wasn't supposed to be their year, but they made their stamp in a transition year. Finishing the season by going 7-1, with a 6 game winning streak including a road playoff win. They let their rookie QB put on a display that has not been seen in a long while. A rookie, that can do EVERYTHING well with an amazing work ethic and attitude. RW is not a Sophomore slump guy, he is only going to get better and anyone that has watched the kid knows it.

    Niner fans are coming here because they know the Hawks are a big-time threat. They have to win it now, because they know there isn't going to be another road like 2012 again for a good while. I promise you that a large portion of Niner fans wanted no part of the Seahawks coming into SF following a 28 point comeback on the road on Atlanta. I could only imagine the relief they felt when Bryant hit that unlikely opportunity at a FG.

    The Niners could very well win the Super Bowl. That would be no surprise to me, but their fans know damn well that backing it up is going to be tougher than ever. So bring it on Niner fans, bask in your glory, but we know that in the back of your minds there is a blue and green nightmare pending... Just like a Windows system update, you are going to have to reboot that computer sometime, if you don't, the system will automatically do it in Sept. 2013.

    Not that far away for some of us old guys. Russell Wilson 2.0 is coming soon.

    I think you missed the exchange in posts him and I had earlier. And it didn't matter who was reporting it as there was in game replay proving it as usual on Playbook. Me stating that wasn't important as I was just having an inside joke with KARAVARUS. But as a Niner fan that watches him play each game and reads and hears all the analysis of his playing ability, Kaepernick is well deserving of all the attention he is getting just as Wilson was well deserving of all the attention he was getting too.

  • Can't knock Billick to much on that, he won a Superbowl with him not losing games for him. Saying that playing QB for him had to be one humiliating expereince knowing he didn't trust you to do anything.

    If you're saying Kaep is better or even equal to Wilson, then you're wrong and that will be played out over the next 5+ years. That's not even homerish, it's actual reality as illustrated by many respected NFL stat sites. The niners are talented, and for their sake they really should win the SB this year, I think they have a 3-4 year window based upon their current roster and they're in year 2. This projection could change depending on the draft/offseason moves of the niners..but last year, yikes.

    That's how I feel too. As long as they come here to talk football/general fun bs in the correct sections of the forums and don't come here to troll then I think it's great to have fans of all teams here.

    Definitely agree that last year we allowed one to slip away due to coming out flat in the NFCCG and bad luck on special teams. I know the odds of back to back SB wins is extremely low, which means that our odds of winning SB 49 will be even higher! ;)

    Ya I am not trying to get into the debate of which of our QB's is better...yet ;). But I know as a Niner fan I allow the abilities of RW go unnoticed by me until my brother brings them to my attention. He does the same thing in regards to CK7 and ends up agreeing with me as well. It's natural for fans of rival teams to not give due credit, and that's where talking about the teams in a non confrontational setting comes handy as when you aren't all fired up you see things clearer.

    Actually I have not compared the stats of RW and CK, which I might due now.

    Looks like our teams are set at the QB position for a while. Will have to wait foe next year for a better comparison since only 9 of CK's games are starts.

    Welcome (cautiously). Let me ask, did you create an account over on the Rams and Cards boards as well? It seems the Niner fans are coming over here more than other fans from our division. Don't know if they're looking for some pat on the back or looking for feedback cus they're playing in two Sundays. If its either, they're not getting it here for the most part. Even when we were in the AFC West did I root for the divison if it wasn't us playing in the playoffs/big game. Didn't do it then and surely won't do it now.

    GO RAVENS!


    Hey I can understand that. Do I think it's sad, pathetic, and a little embarrassing to not root for your team and instead root against ours? Hell yes that is about as low and sad as it gets. Cowboys fans do the same thing they got nothing of their own to root for so instead root against the 49ers.

    I love it though and since you said yourself you don't care for class from us, and that is your stance, I will give you the low blow.

    Image

    Come shine these bad boys for us when you get a chance ok?


    To answer your question about why so many 49ers fans come here and other teams don't. Come look at our boards. The amount of vile idiotic Seahawks fans that troll us all season is more than any other team. That is why. We got sick of all the shit talk out of this fanbase especially after you guys beat us. To cap it off off you guys never won the big one yet you talk like you have. And now look we are in the superbowl and beat the team you guys couldn't so it's some major told ya so going on.

    Then you hear absurd things like Russell Wilson is bound for the hall of fame? PAH LEEZ!

  • Well I think the NFL has decided that Lewis is going to retire this year with his second SB ring and no one will be able to prevent that even Jim Harbaugh.

    The same way they decided a mediocre running back named Jerome Bettis was going to get his.

  • This conversation is kinda pathetic really....

    One would almost have to assume that 49er FANS think they have some personal role in the past (and current) successes of that organization... You guys in San Francisco merely have a coincidental birthplace whereby your proximity to a business franchise has mandated your loyalty to said franchise. Whether the 49ers do good or bad in any given year is in no way a reflection of your happy (or pathetic) life.

    While the same can be said of nearly any football fan base that insists on using a "we" in reference to their football team, I guess I honestly don't understand the negativity in either direction. :?

    So while I do grasp the inherent competitive spirit that drives fans to be proud of the team they have chosen to represent. To personalize the assault's flying back and forth in either direction just speaks to the immaturity and ignorance of the poster - not the collective cities they claim to represent.

    Regardless, it's somewhat amusing to watch some of you get all worked up about it.
