san francisco 49ers
Up next for the 49ers are the Carolina Panthers. Although the Panthers came to Candlestick earlier this season and beat San Francisco, the 49ers are the better team and have a very good shot at winning their second straight road playoff game.
The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to face off with the Carolina Panthers for the second time this season, but there is a lot more on the line this time.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.

Last year, the 49ers made an improbable run to the Super Bowl, before falling one play short of reaching the ultimate team goal.

This year it’s San Francisco who fits this description and unlike last year, the Niners have everything in place to get past the rest of the NFC.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
It’s a total joke that the NFL doesn’t have a system where mistakes, via the Refs alone, are not caught prior to happening. If Bill Leavy didn’t known the rule or called it out wrong shouldn’t there be a failsafe?
Boldin had 12 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers’ 30-24 victory over the Packers.
Anybody who watched the Cardinals last year saw that they needed help at the quarterback position. Considering their options, Arizona has to be happy with their off-season addition of Carson Palmer.
The Montreal Alouettes signed quarterback Troy Smith to a two-year deal Wednesday.
I said over the weekend on my sports program that the Baltimore Ravens organization led by Owner Steve Bisciotti reminds me of the San Francisco 49ERS of the 80s and early-mid 90s who was once owned by Eddie DeBartolo Jr.
