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 like the 49ers anyway. You gotta love a Jim Harbaugh led team.

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

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. :)

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.

I like Jim Harbaugh because his hand shake is 2nd only to Chuck Norris'.

My 2nd favorite team (behind the Colts) is whoever plays the Pats.

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.

    • Bates as a ILB?
      Our 2013 draft did hit us. We corrected the ship with the 2014 and 2015 drafts.    We paid the price of 8-8 for our miscalculations. 
    • Bates as a ILB?
      I disagree. I believe Clark has the potential to be a day-one starter. Hell, I would be surprised if he doesn't start either at RG, or RT on opening day.    I understand why they would have Green and Clark as first round picks. They were both even mocked in the first round a few times. The measurable's on these two are off the charts. Clark is 6'5" with 36-inch arms and almost 12-inch hands. That's insanely not normal. Green is 6'2" 209, and he is running the forty in 4.34 seconds. Unbelievable!    Why is it hard to believe the front office? I had Kelly going as high as 16 to the Lions. Green's measurable's alone was getting him drafted early. I thought for sure that Clark would be a mid-second round pick. I had Ridgeway going in the late second or very early third. And I thought Blythe would be drafted a round or two earlier. It is not really hard for me to see where they are coming from. I see the exact same thing they do, and they have a lot more information than me.    Every NFL team is going to walk away from the draft feeling good about themselves. For the most part; they get the players they wanted. Different team needs, different offensive and defensive philosophies, different philosophies on players with red flags, and so on; this causes teams to have completely different boards. I would bet that no team has players ranked in the same order at any position.    I can tell you this; the moment we drafted Dwight Freeney, Bill Polian lit up light a Christmas tree. He raved about Freeney in the press conference. I went to camp and the moment I saw him running through drills, it was evident this was a beast of a man playing with boys. I had never seen anything like this in all my years as a Colts fan. I have several stories like that. 
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Let me ask you this, why isn't Clark going to contribute his rookie year much? Is it because he was drafted in the 3rd round? Is it because of what some draft analysts said about him? Is it some old school thing where rookies have to pay their dues to become starters and can't outshine a player that's been playing longer? Clark is no slouch, he'll likely start on day 1, whether it be at RG or RT (not sure which), and it won't be too hard to earn a starting job based on the goal of drafting the O-Line and the weakness of our O-Line before the draft. That old school mentality that you have to play a year or two before starting or getting playing time doesn't apply nearly as much anymore, especially if you more talented out of the gate than the person you are competing for the job with.
    • Bates as a ILB?
      I'm much more worried that eventually these questionable drafts are going to catch up to the Colts!    
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Green and Clark are guys that likely won't contribute much in their rookie year.    They'll likely both need a full year of seasoning to show dividends.   I have no objections to them,  it's how the front office described them.     Green a 1st round pick?    Clark a borderline 1/2?     Hoag a 2?      I'm sure Ridgeway and Morrison were ranked higher than they were drafted.   That's either rare,  Bill Walsh genius level insight into stacking the board,  or we have misevaluated again.   When you're announcing that 5 players were ranked higher to much higher on your board than they were drafted,   it makes me skeptical.      Especially considering our spotty history.   I'd almost feel better if we DIDN'T ANNOUNCE how highly we thought of them and saved that for a year or two down the line when they're paying off for us.      Now,  the expectations bar is way up on them because of what we announced.      I don't think it was smart.   Again.....    I'm hoping to be wrong,  but it's been my reading of history that when most teams announce they have players ranked much higher on their board than where they were drafted,  it shows why these teams aren't as successful as they should be.
