I know we get upset when we turn the ball over but here's some perspective from player. Sometimes good to remember when we criticize and demonize players. Man...

I was thinking the same thing. I think the Seahawks have a lot of holes (especially with their recent injuries), and Russell Wilson covers up most of them, but they have two losses because they can't trust Walsh. They'd be 8-2 with us if he'd made the Skins and Falcons FG's (did Pete Carroll avoid giving Walsh the chance at the end of the first half because Carroll was worried about Walsh missing it?).

Watching that game made me appreciate the Vikes D. You could see all the D linemen for Atlanta going for sacks to pad their stats, and letting Russell Wilson scoot by them for nearly a hundred yards on the ground. And the special teams were atrocious.

I wanted Jimmy G. In the draft.

This Brady/Guerrero/Belichick thing is nuts.

That would be epic. Will never happen but curious to hear their reasoning.

Tiki Barber made a good point. CJ getting hurt might have been the worst thing to happen to the 49ers this year.

Garoppolo will now command a much higher pay day with what he's shown this year.
49ers on a winning streak will cost them 8 or 9 spots down the draft order.

Any starting QB costs money

The niners fans want wins and have been lost
in the wilderness since the good coach was forced
out and choose Michigan over pro’s

Wow. Reid announced Mahomes as the starting QB this week for the Chiefs.

Smith hasn't been an MVP but he's been pretty good.

Bold move, Cotton. Let's see how it plays out.

Does KC have anything to play for this week? They already wrapped up the division but given their record I assume they will be the 4 seed.

Yeah, I think they're locked in. Good point.

Yeah but his market value just skyrocketed with his performance this year.

Been reading Jon Gruden to the Raiders and he's been quietly assembling a staff. Would be interesting.
