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.

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.

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.

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

Interesting. He hasn't looked the same this season. And he has lost contro of them several times.

When I hear Gruden talking as an announcer, I'm not impressed with his football knowledge. He speaks more like a fan than like a guy who has deep insight into the game. He says things like "Zimmer loves to bring the big blitz" because we line up with the double A gap linebackers and that's what it looks like, but doesn't realize that we tend to rush only four (but the offense can't know which four), and we might send one of the LB's and have Hunter or Griffen drop into coverage in the flats.

Yokes: per Pete Carrol, Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor will have a hard time resuming their careers (Beck injuries).

Regarding the Seahawks and their kicker... I hadn't realized that Walsh essentially cost the Seahawks THREE games this season. He missed three FGs in a close loss to Washington, he missed the FG at the end of the Cards game in week 17, and he missed a late game FG that could have tied Atlanta (as well as the Seahawks bypassing the chance at a FG at the end of the first half and missing the TD on the fake FG from the 17(!!!) - was Pete Carroll already suspecting that Walsh was a liability?).

This means that a can't-miss FG kicker like Justin Tucker would have had the "disappointing" Seahawks at 12-4 this season. They would be the three seed, and would be a trendy pick to upset us in the divisional round. So thank you Blair! The gift that keeps on giving!

That's too bad. He was a good QB just couldn't stay healthy.

What was Tomlin thinking with the on side kick? Decisions like that can run you out of town. Personally, I think he's overrated. Riding his QB like they're doing in GB.

Source?

He hasn't practiced for a couple of days due to that hand injury he sustained in practice. But I haven't heard anything about him not being able to start.
