Game day is finally here!!! We’ve all heard the talk, seen the replays, listened to the pundits, and understand that Shakira and J Lo are the halftime show. Time to play the game!
We’ve gone over the matchups and position battles, and even the history of the Niners in their quest to get their 6th trophy. The pundits have all weighed in, even the bettors have raised the point spread to -2 for the Chiefs in certain books. Among all the talk, one thing I didn’t mention was the coaching.
In the end, I think Kyle Shanahan calls a better game than the Walrus. Koo-Koo-Ka-Choo, once a bridesmaid, always a bridesmaid. KC is relying too heavily on their offense, and I think we can slow them enough to win. They will score, but we will slow them down enough to take this.
it’s about time, they really stretch this out to long. Corporate bullshit. Anyway, holding my breath and crossing my fingers. No turnovers and we probably win. Hoping to see a clean game from Jimmy. Go Niners.
Got my Niner gear on it’s always special to put it on for a SB game again! Been 25 years since the last one but it’s just awesome to have a chance for #6 with this team!
Their are several teams that still have never been to the SB, and I’m sure it’s frustrating for them, but you have to have the fire in your orq with repeat success to get the job done..Patriots,Steelers,Packers,Cowboys &of course the 49ers all have it other teams never will..
we need all the mojo we can get.
I think this game is a toss up. We gotta step up or we just might get stepped on. Kinda like the 2014 KC World Series. They had the overall better team but we had Bum. We need someone to step up like MadBum did.
Kinda of weird stats..
As much as everyone talks about the Chiefs prolific offense putting up points, it was the 49ers who were even more high powered out scoring the Chiefs 479-451 in the regular season!
And yet with the 49ers dominating defense it was the Chiefs who gave up less points 310-308 in the regular season!
Yeah this shapes up to be 1 hella of a football game🏈
The defensive numbers are skewed by our injuries mid-season. We gave up a LOT of points with some key pieces out. No key pieces missing today. I actually think we’re better on both sides of the ball. If we can run for at least 150, I think we win. Make it 200+ and it’s a laugher.
Stats CAN lie. And sometimes perception skews reality.
in a season of coincidences, from 3 years to the SuperBowl for Walsh and Shanny, to the Mahomes/Marino comparisons, the kicker is, this is Puppy Bowl XVI.
Victory is ours!!
One stat that skews in our favor is that all season, if an RB gets through the KC line, they usually bust tackles. I think we win the line on both sides and win the game. If we are very good at one thing on the O line it is opening holes for the RBs.
Bring it on already! Got my Super Bowl XXIX shirt ready to put on.
I don’t think KC can stop the Niners Offense. The NO game showed what Kyle is capable of. He will start with run, if KC decides to load the box, Kyle opens up that play book and goes all in. If KC can’t stop the run, well Minnesota and GB come to mind.
One stat you would think KC has is most explosive plays of 20 yards are more.No it’s the 49ers that own that and it’s the highest total in the 4 years!
Shanny is a master of dialing up deception plays and getting the separation for his receivers in space, a lot like how Walsh would do it with Rice&Taylor 5 yard slant turns intoYAC 75 yard TD’s..
Funny, they were doing cheers between Niner fans and KC fans, and the KC fans didn’t know who Honey Badger was. Derp.
I hope we kick their ass and not leave any doubt. I still think turnovers will be the key. We have to play a clean game.
I still say, open showing run, surprise them early with play action, THEN start ramming it right down their throats.
On Defense: KILL.
LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ! ! ! ! !
Surprised they started Coleman over Mosert.
Guess a 220 yard rushing day doesn’t mean squat..
So far no surprises
that is just what is gonna kill us Jimmy made stupid decision.
He never lets that bother him. And in my opinion that is what will make him a great QB
I don’t like this why settle for a tie at the half
Wtf, 3 TO and their was over a minute and now they’re playing conservative??
BS call on Kittle
I knew Jimmy could carry this team! He is going to be a great QB. Run, pass this team is well balanced
Mahomes starting to feel the pressure of having to make plays
Jimmy G is outplaying Mahomes, throwin in a tenacious defense and its starting to look good!
Why aren’t the Niners going hurry up!!!
What the f***. I swear if shanahan just kept running the ball we would be super bowl champs. First down and 10, what do we do we run for 5 yards late in the game. And then pass incomplete. pass incomplete. That’s BS. We were winning by running and he got too cute. It’s not on Jimmy g. It’s on Shanny
This is on Kyle, once again afraid to take chances, he had 1:30 mins at the half and ran out the clock, then the Chiefs go into no huddle and score, 2:30 mins and Kyle acts like he has all the time in the world. When it is 2:30 mins the D knows you have to pass so call two plays and get it done. And I don’t know what Saleh does to practice no huddle offenses, but whatever it was it didn’t work
If not for the OPI call on Kittle, we kick the FG.
20-10 and shut out in the 4th quarter. We had the ball off the pick and just flailed. Losing Hill on the 3rd and 15 play was fucking awful. Jimmie Ward fucked that hard. And fucking Moore on the PI?
This ain’t on Shanny, it’s on the defense. We had KC stopped on those 2 drives and let him get loose. Moore fucking stinks. We gave them big plays that we shouldn’t have.
Sorry Chuck. But I disagree. 5 minutes left. Up 20-17. 1st and 10. Mostert for 5. 2nd and 5. We pass. Incomplete. 3rd and 5. Pass. Incomplete. Punt. 1,2,3 punt. We had them with our zone blocking and Mostert at that point. On that 2nd and 5, running the zone blocking and Mostert was the call, and he got too cute. I’m sorry, but I just think that was a crucial point in the game and that shanahan went away from what had dominated Green Bay, had dominated the Vikings, and I think was going to run the ball down the throats of the chiefs at that point in the game with five minutes left. We were going to be successful. he just lost patience.
and yes, the defense might have been a little bit gassed at that point. But they would have had a lot more in the tank if we had stuck to the run. Am I out of my head here? What was our average per carry?
6.4 yards per carry
We ran for about 140 on the night. Make that 170 or 180 and another eight carries, and we would have won.
This is Jed York Karma for how he ran a smear campaign against Jim Harbaugh and Colin Kaepernick. It’s York Karma for how they took the 49ers out of SF and put them in Silicon Valley, looking for tech money. It’s York karma for all the slimy, back-handed, leaking, shady Jed York dealings. Jed York deserves both the choker Garoppolo and 4th quarter brain-dead Shannahan.
What did Justin Smith say when he retired and Patrick Willis followed? “Maybe the 49ers need a new owner.”
Jed York is the Buffalo Bills. Hey Jed: Ya ain’t no Eddie D…. The fish rots from the head.
Go back under your rock, skippy.
KC played the whole game, we didn’t. To me it wasn’t unexpected. KC almost got there last year. We had a fantastic season and should be in the mix for the next few years at least. Losing the SB is a bummer but at least we got there and hopefully it will make us stronger next year.
What a pisser. Game ih hand and we give it away. Thing is, we would have had a13-10 lead if not for the iffy OPI call on Kittle.
Iffy? Don’t you mean blatant? He clearly pushed off and gained separation because of it. Just because you want something to happen, Chuck (like you getting a life), doesn’t mean you or the 49ers are victims because your dreams were dashed.
Jed York 0-2. 49er fans are losers.
Fuck off, ass clown. Go hide back under Skeebie’s skirt.
The Niners need a more balanced offense, this is the 2nd SB they have lost because they rely to much on the run. And then when they have to pass it is too late, the Defenses know the pass is coming. You can talk all you want about running the ball using up clock blah, blah blah. But in today’s NFL it has been proven to get back in the game you must pass. Kyle is either going to get confidence in Jimmy or we the fans will see these losses regularly
My guess is we will be stronger next year.I don’t see us digressing.
KC’s defense made the plays down the stretch. We didn’t.We were still running well when Shanny 3 and outed with 2 straight incompletions. Jimmy missing Sanders wide open was a fail.
Jimmy has to learn how to feel the pressure better than he does.
New thread is up.
