Plenty of 49ers fans are concerned, and I love it.

  • So, on the "quality" forum known as 49ers Web Zone, a 49ers fan made a thread titled "So........um........are we still the best team in our division? (HOMERS STAY OUT)"

    It's 32 pages long right now, and there are definitely plenty of homers in it despite the warning in the subject line, but there are quite a few gems which I've taken the liberty of posting below.

    Afrikan wrote:yeah, I think the Seahawks are more talented than us right now...and even if we add Woodson or a few other Vets or young draft picks...one thing I'm worried about is.

    Russell Wilson and his new toy vs our Secondary that will look different....be it older or younger. Either way Goldson and Whitner had pretty good communication most of the time. I'm sure its going to take a bit of time for our new secondary to gel. But I don't know if we can afford it that time...with the division and home field advantage on the line. but no, its not just Wilson vs our Secondary...but also, if they jump to two score leads.....well their secondary is not older or less experienced...they are actually growing with each other and were already tough as it is.

    So although I love Kaep and I trust him...I don't like the idea of us in obvious passing situations for most of the game against a team like Seattle. it just seems like a bad recipe.... Us vs their talented Secondary....and Wilson and their latest toy (who was one of the main annoyances in that Vikings loss) against our *different* looking secondary.

    Afrikan wrote:Harvin was killing us in Minny...it was annoying as fuuu. I don't know if I can handle having two little annoying f'ers on the same team.... trying to chase down Wilson and Harvin?.....Oh God just thinking of them barely converting first downs on us just makes me sick right now.

    StOnEy333 wrote:That's usually what happens when seattle plays at home.


    Afrikan wrote:which is even more reason that every game is going to be important...we can't let them have home field advantage in the post season. even with our good start last season, the Seahawks bounced back and were right on our tails for the division. I just hope everyone gels quickly.


    OregonNiner87 wrote:I think Kaepernick still has a lot to prove. Especially if Frank Gore starts going down hill or the pistol is accounted for. I love the fact he's our quarterback, but it's hard to be 100% confident judging him surrounded by the o-line and the rest of the talent on the O. Kaep is good at a lot of things, but I like Wilson's pocket presence a lot more than his.

    The trajectory of the defense at the end of the 2011 playoffs and 2012 playoffs are drastically different, imo. If Cowboy doesn't produce like he was, I think we're in trouble. And even if he is, I think it's an extremely tall order to find a player in the draft in the next 1-2 years that'll produce anywhere similar to him. I think the likelihood of Seattle's backfield > our front seven is pretty decent. I'm expecting a wild card birth with Kaep coming on strong late in the season. Putting the freakin' team on his back.

    matthewabbit wrote:You can't say seatle is more talented but they are certainly playing like they aim to prove it. Their whole team looks like they are on adderol.

    KimChee49er wrote:Wow, hard to say. I personally think the division race between the Hawks and 49ers for 2013 is going to be a blood bath. Both teams are very confident and know they are top dawgs in the division. They are going punish each other every time they face off. The team that stays the healthiest during the season will win the division. If I have to make a call right now I think the Hawks will win the division due to them having a younger roster/team.


    paperplanemedia wrote:We got destroyed in Seattle and we barely beat them at our house. Teams that know they can beat us or give us a hard time always have the upper hand IMHO.


    iLL49er wrote:I think Russell Wilson is farther along as a QB than Kap is right now...Kap has higher upside but the fact is wilson has played a full season...
    He also has better natural instincts in the pocket than kap.
    I'd say seattle is better talent wise as they have more young players getting better but our coaching beats them
    we really missed a big window these last 2yrs...we were the best team in teh nfl and didn't win
    now seattle is coming so are other teams

    Really? I can't help but ask why. The guy is poised, he's accurate, consistent and has a good work ethic. I don't think he's as dynamic as Kap but I thought he was outstanding last year. I didn't think he would do as well next season but having Harvin on board has definitely changed my mind.


    NinerBuff wrote:I agree with Wifey. The only possible knock on him is his size. I think he'll be a Drew Brees type when it's all said and done. :roll:


    Joecool wrote:SEA is the more talented team. In the secondary, we are not even in their league. They aren't very far from us in terms of their front 7. Their QB is only a few inches worse than ours. Their WR's are much more explosive and they also have a solid TE.

    The only thing they have going against them is their drop of level of play on the road. Unless we acquire some equal or better talent, we will need to out-execute them. Having said all of this, Beastmode is their anchor. Let's hope he's on the decline.


    truekingcarlos wrote:No. We're losing key members of our team. We will be either matched or surpassed.


    J49er wrote:Yes, the Seahawks are the more talented team. Especially now that they have Avril. We can discount them all we want but while we seem to be targeting free agents based on Hall of Fame credentials, the Seahawks are getting a younger/better on the field product. Facts are the facts.

    Go 49ers!


    AllTimeGreat wrote:As much as it pains me to say this, the Seahawks are one of the best run organizations in the NFL right now. I hope I'm wrong and they fall flat on their faces though. I freaking can't stand their douchebag players, head coach, and fans.


    Note on the below one, AllTimeGreat is responding to baltien, officially the stupidest poster on the internet that I've seen, even half of the 49ers forum argues against him, and the point AllTimeGreat is responding to is that baltien claimed Pete was on the hot seat until he got Wilson.
    AllTimeGreat wrote:Until he happened across Russell Wilson? So by that logic kinda like how Harbaugh happened across Colin Kaepernick, right? If you want to discredit Carroll for getting lucky finding Wilson, than what makes Harbaugh any different with selecting Kaepernick?

    If you don't believe the Seahawks are one of the best run franchises out there currently, just take a look at their recent draft history. In the 3 years Pete the Cheat has been there they've drafted: A franchise QB (Wilson), a stud linebacker (Bobby Wagner), a DE who led all rookies in sacks (Bruce Irvin), an elite CB (Sherman), a pro-bowl LT (Okung), a sure-fire top 5 safety (Earl Thomas) as well as another very solid safety (Kam Chancellor) not to mention a number of other solid starters and role players ( LB KJ Wright, OG John Moffitt, OT James Carpenter, RB Robert Turbin, TE Anthony McCoy, WR Golden Tate). That's a highly impressive collection of talent from 3 years of drafting.

    Giving them props doesn't take anything away from what Harbaugh and Baalke have accomplished, they've obviously done an absolutely tremendous job and haven't given us much to complain about. But the Seahawks are a legit threat and a talented team in their own right and will give us a run for our money for the division both next year and in the future. It's shaping up to be a great rivalry, one which we hopefully can have the upper hand in for years to come.


    Posted this one because his 5th point on the list made me crack up.

    BrianGO wrote:Wilson is amazing. His ability to escape from a pass rush is the best in the league by far. When he started escaping consistently, that is when I think you went on that winning streak. If you can't sack a quarterback, what's the point of a pass rush?

    You also have a ridiculous home field advantage. The 49ers actually have an above average ratio at home, but if you look at the numbers, Seattle's home field vs road win ratio is ridiculous. I think they have the best home-vs-road ratio in all of sports.

  • That's a lot of time spent in another teams forums to make you feel better about your own team. Some people need that I guess. A majority of the 9er fans aren't worried and trust in the teams decisions. Every team goes through this phase of changes. Seattle will be next.

    Many Seahawk fans bring up the last Seahawk/9er game but that was a developing Kaepernick. He's performed and broke records in 2 playoffs and a Super Bowl since then. I'm not worried as are many.

  • Well one of those posts said we are re loading, i disagree, the 49ers are reloading based on the FA they have, we are fine tuning, the reload is a shot at hoping many 30 plus vets have one more bullet to fire to get the youngsters on the 49ers over the hump.The cost is going to be a higher risk of injuries and a higher risk of egos clashing.

    We have our vocal players here, but they have grown together and developed there ideas as a group about what a team effort is. Bringing in veterans as we have seen here can either bring stability or create division. Younger hungry guys that are still trying to prove something has worked very well here.

    Not sure why Seahawk fans visit the Webzone to find out what Niner fans are thinking. The Webzone is full of immature posters for the most part who even drive away their own who then head over to 49ers.com. When I used to visit that site to read what they were talking about I would leave laughing my ass off!

    The trash talking that I do occasionally this week is strictly for gamesmanship between opposing fanbases as a result of our upcoming matchup this week on SNF. It by no means should be taken personally.

    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.
