49ers Want Payback In Rematch With Carolina Panthers

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.

Clay Matthews Out, Carlos Rogers Question Mark For 49ers And Packers Playoff Showdown

The fact that both teams could be without a key defensive player this Sunday when the 49ers and Packers play is not good. While Green Bay already knows their fate, San Francisco is hoping and waiting that they will not be without Carlos Rogers.

49ers Lean On Experience In NFC Playoffs

Last year, the 49ers made an improbable run to the Super Bowl, before falling one play short of reaching the ultimate team goal. They lost to the Baltimore Ravens, a more experienced team that rode momentum all the way to a Championship. 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.

Glenn Younes: Packers-49ers Blown Call

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?

Carson Palmer Provides The Cardinals With A Major Upgrade

Mike Popovec: San Francisco East

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.
