Win or lose - we should be 49ers fans this Sunday

35 posts in this topic

If we win vs the Texans this weekend, we have a shot at a division and a bye week (if we win out). So, we will be Ravens fans and 49ers fans to get as many losses for our AFC rivals Broncos and Patriots that are potential division leaders. Yes, I may be dreaming of a bye week but if I am going to dream at this point, why not make it big? :) We are discussing hypotheticals after all. :) We hold the tie-breaker over Broncos if Ravens beat the Broncos and we win out (since Broncos lost to Pats and Texans while we potentially can beat Texans twice for a bye week). Both Broncos and Colts would then have 3 AFC losses and 1 NFC loss. Next tie-breaker is common opponents.

If we lose, we will be 49ers fans so that the last game matters a little less for the Texans and should we depend on that last game for whatever reason, Texans probably play their starters for about a half, IMO.

Thoughts????

I pick a side in every game I watch whether it's playoffs, week 2, or some other meaningful game.

Now the side I pick can be for various reasons.

I'm all about scenarios playing out that puts the Colts at a 2 seed. Why on earth would you be against it.

Realistically, it's not likely and I don't think anyone who follows closely would disagree.

The fact that it's possible is pretty amazing, but our guys have to play lights out in Houston and win for this to be on the radar as a real possibility.

While we are pipe dreaming, why not the Vikings week 16 over the Texans? I mean if the Colts do it, surly AP has some kinda shot.

Do we hold a tie breaker over Denver?

Not till we win out :), so there are some assumptions there. :)

I wonder if Harbaugh will only evaluate Brady or if he will pursue trying to stop him :).

I don't. We're talking about Harbaugh. He wants to pound everyone.

Harbaugh: 49ers evaluated Manning, didn't pursue

"The 49ers were "evaluating" Manning, not pursuing or "flirting" with him. "It's silly and it's untrue. It's phony," he said..."There would be no circumstance that we would have let Alex Smith go. Now, were we out there seeing, evaluating if we could have them both? Heck, yeah. And you evaluate that, you eliminate the possibility."

Okay there Jim, so if a woman pours water over her date's head & tells them to burn in Hades can we assume that there will me no upcoming nuptials in his immediate future too?

But, what do I know right, I'm merely "evaluating" the situation... :lol::funny::spit:

I think we have to eventually forget the notion that Houston is going to just give us the last game....

..where did that start?

With that said....If we lose Sunday....we want SF to beat NE so Denver gets the No.2 seed..and the Colts dont face Peyton Manning.

The Colts want to play Baltimore

The thing is, if the Texans have banged up players but have wrapped up HFA, they are more likely to rest them not having to gain much from that last game, increasing our chances for a win.

Broncos beating the Ravens accomplishes the same thing of the Colts being in line to play Baltimore, though SF beating NE would be better more for Broncos and Broncolt fans for bye week reasons. :)

I'm more interested in seeing the matchup because I feel that these are two of teh best teams in the NFL and I really am anxious to see if the Patriots are really that much better than everyone else.

Of course I'll root for captain comeback because he is still one of my favorite colts of all time and I despise the patriots (even though I respect BB a great deal and have a special place in my heart as was DC when the Giants beat Joe Montana and eventually win the SB vs the Bills. A day no New Yorker will ever forget).

I doubt the Ravens will beat the Broncos, but you never know.

After all is said and done, I think your last statement will matter most. Winning the division and getting a bye is a long shot at best and I think that will be out of reach at Sunday around 4PM. What matters most to me is getting the 5th seed with the hopes that the Ravens are the opponent.

The Texans want the # 1 seed above all else, right?

The point is if they have that wrapped up by the last game, and the best way for that to happen is for the 9ers to win on Sunday, the Dec 30th Colts v. Texans game may not matter at all for that seeding. So not only would they have nothing to play for, they may decide to sit out players to get healthy and prevent injury.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best. I know you guys like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
