Steve Davis: The 49ers Are Scary

I think the 49’ers are legit, even capable of beating the Packers. Someone said to me that the 8-1 is overrated because they play in the NFC West.  On the surface, you might say that because they’re division is pathetic, the worst in football. But San Fran has only played 2 games in the division right now.

Their wins are about as impressive as any team in football. Road wins in Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Detroit, and home wins against the Giants and Tampa Bay, who they beat 48-3.  They play great defense, run the football very well, and have a QB who “manages” the game. It’s the formula that won a certain Baltimore team a title 11 years ago.  Jim Harbaugh has done an amazing job, considering he has most of the same personnel that was brutal last year.

That said, I like the Ravens in this game. They’re 5-0 at home, and it’s ridiculous to ask a team to travel from west to east, 3 time zones, with 3 days rest to play a game.

    Scott I was in the same boat on you prediction scary as it seemed. Here are 3 things about that game 7 the Ravens team that show some fans will never believe our team is pretty good. One – Ravens couldn’t score rushing touchdown against 49er’s from inside the 5. – POINT – No other team they played has either. Two, JOE FLACCO doesn’t have the Biggest TD & Passing numbers to be elite and seems unconcerned. POINT – I’d rather have a steady team player winning games than a me me my numbers type of player that thinks all the time about his stats and less about the team as a whole. THREE – We can’t win with JOE FLACCO lead offense that doesn’t score more than they do. It’s possible, we won it all with DILFER how much scoring did he generate. Every RAVEN & every RAVENS FAN needs to jettison all the negative baggage and play the season unhindered by problems in the past “ONE GAME AT A TIME!” JUST BELIEVE!
