It was posted earlier that the ninnirs are picking and choosing trying to get the player or two they need to get back to the SB because they think their time is now.
I agree with that.
I'll go further...I think the ninnirs are a better team than us at the end of the season. Many of you will point out the huge win against them but at our house. I hate to agree with Harbaugh but I too felt the game turned on the blocked field goal returned by us for a 21-0 lead. If they make that FG making the score 14-3 the game could have been a lot different.
They have more picks, we have more money to spend so that will factor in.
But we had better be as good as some of you think we are cause last year a couple of games we basically pissed away cost us a fair shot at the SB. If we do that again the ninnirs likely will get another trip to the big show and given enough chances even a monkey can type a word on a typewriter.
We made our offense better cause of this trade. Now lets hope our offensive line will have played together enough to really make Beast Mode a game changer. We need to be able to run against anyone and it has to be when WE want to.
So they got what I think is a really good receiver who is older but can fill a void they have in sure handed receivers. But with a limited time to help them out.
We get a hot dog that can help us win for several years. We will have to wait to see how that works out.
I think we need more help on defense!! We have to get back to being able to stop teams from advancing again when WE want to stop them.
On paper for next year this trade is a wash. Lets hope it will keep us from losing dumb games like we did last season. Because finally everyone ought to see that every game is important.
My dream for next season is not what we have done so far but to be like the stillirs of the mid 70s that could run against anyone all the time. Could pass on anyone all the time. Who never to let up but keep pressing the entire game. Chuck Noll sure as hell didn't use 2 deep and/or prevent defenses. That was a lot like the Packers of the late 60s early 70s too.
