    Don’t change your mind now haters! Stick to talking about the cowboys, chiefs, rams and patriots.

      49ers win the Super Bowl, single-handedly convince the world to add American football to the olympics, go on to beat every nation's team, aliens come down because they finally deem mankind (through the abilities of the 49ers) worthy of joining the Intergalactic League, they become demigods in the eyes of the rest of the universe and Kittle stiff arms Gorgon the Death God into oblivion to turn all life forms immortal.


      "but are they for real?"

                    Holy overreaction Batman. If Niners lose to Rams they're talking like the seasons over and if they win they're talking like they've won the division. Lol what. Joke Seattle at 4-1 and Niners need to play rams a second time and hawks twice. Sunday's game against the Rams should be good for the media to have talking points like this but it will tell us very little about the divisional outcome

                          With how inconsistent the nfl has been lately where every week a team everyone thinks is good loses to a team everyone thinks is bad it’s baffles me that the one team consistently smashing teams every week is up for debate on whether there good or not.. if the niners weren’t actually good they would of let Cleveland back into that game the other night once they got a lead. Good teams step on bad teams throats

                                        Ill give you that, but if they go into the Coliseum on Sunday and beat the Rams then it will be very hard for this team to not make the playoffs especially with the injuries to Staley, Spoons and Juice.

                                      seem to be getting hit with a big injury every week that leaves guys out for several games. just hope we can win some games down the stretch and stay healthy when everyone comes back. could be that surprise wildcard team

                                        The Rams are going to throw everything they have including the kitchen sink at the 9ers this week. Why? Because they won't allow and definitely cannot afford to lose 3 games in a row. This will be a very tough challenge for the 9ers with s short week and losing Juice for 6 weeks. We shall see. Let's go 9ers!!

                                          @Brain Baker True, basically is the entire kicking unit. Kyle and Hightower better have the situation under control because we will need every single point we can get our hands on if we want to win this game.

                                          I am not worried about the RBs, whether it is Breida, Coleman or Mostert. The key issue will be on the run blocking after losing Juice.  We will need the TEs to block well, period. Meanwhile, Kyle is already bringing in fullbacks for workouts.

                                          I agree this game could be winnable, but we will need to be firing on all cylinders in all 3 phases of the game. I think Vegas has the 9ers as the underdog at +3.5.

                                          @Alex Fu it's not Gould I'm worried about .. it's the snapper and holder doing their job better. I think Gould was thrown off by their poor performance.

                                          With Coleman back he'll help in the pass game I think too. Kittle and Coleman should actually be able to take some pressure off the WRs and maybe even open some stuff up for them.

                                          Can't wait for the game. It's winnable but definitely going to be tough.

                                          @Brian Baker It will be a big test for our D to get to Goff. Jared Goff will throw a lot like they did when they played the Seahawks. So, unless the pass rush can really get to him, we may have to score a LOT. That would mean we would have to rely on Jimmy G's pass game more and the WRs will really have to step up to get open and make catches without drops. The good news is Rams' D is not playing well whether it is against the run or pass. Hopefully, we will be able to run the ball to help set up the pass game. One thing I am seriously worried about is Robbie Gould. Let's put it this way, I don't think we can win this game if he misses 3 FGs again.

                                          The Rams are struggling.. pretty confident our D will slow them down a bit. We aren't doing to hold them to no TDs most likely the way we did the Browns. Losing Juice is gonna hurt our running game, no way to get around that. If we some how come out and rush for 150+ again, then either shanahan is a full-blown genius for the Rams just stink it up.

                                          i honestly don’t think juice will be out that long, he seemed confident he’ll be back in 5 weeks or less and i’m being both hopeful but also think it’s very very possible

                                        I am a Niner fan, but too soon for this conversation. How they do in division will tell a lot. The NFC West is so tough! Even AZ isnt a guaranteed win.

Our biggest advantage is the d-line LA wont have answers for it. It's not going to be easy especially in our division, but I like our chances so far.

                                        People seem to forget the 49ers havent had a qb the last two years . If they had a qb they would have been in the playoffs the last two years

                                          @Christian Soldier that year they also lost a lot of close games. Everything happens for a reason. The bad season last year resulted in Bosa, who could very well be the DROY

                                          @Joe Schmo The year Jimmy G came in the second half of the season the 49ers were 1-10 he won the last 5 games including games vs the Jags and titans. The jags went to the afc championship game . The 49ers lost 6 games by 3 points or less that year with a bad qb so do the math

                                          If a team is consistently blowing teams out that shows they are on a certain level
                                          Otherwise they would struggle with lesser teams

                                            In other words, the 2019 49ers aren’t the Steelers of the past few years.

                                            Not playing down to the level of the lesser teams but blowing them out, definitely the difference between a good team and a great team.

                                          I predict they will suffer catastrophic injuries that will just cut short their chances this year. Will probably make playoffs, but won't make the big game, then they will come back next season for a new dominate decade.

                                              I’m not gonna lie, I’m super hyped to see the team go 4-0 but, we have to be realistic. They haven’t really played a great team yet. And they haven’t played a single divisional game. Sunday will be their first big test. I wouldn’t say SB contenders just because it’s too early but, I think at the very least the case is strong for them to secure a wildcard spot in the playoffs.

                                                4-0 and 30+points (except Steelers)vs bad teams that we're supposed to beat? Oh believe that the Niners are that good. That Steelers game they show grit. They made mistakes that was their own not the opposing defense and still overcame it to pull of a win. Good team find ways to win bad games.

                                              Even better 49ers beats the packers in NFC Championship, who Aaron Rogers was supposed to go to and also grew up rooting for.

                                                They beat Tampa Bay, banged up Pittsburgh, horrendous Cinci, and now the overrated Browns. I think it's a bit early to call them SB contenders, guys!

                                                  The 49ers can only play the teams they’re on their schedule The way they run the ball and the way they play defense They can win anywhere on the road They’re going to dominate that Rams offense

                                                  We won’t blow out the good teams like we have the ones we’ve played so far and we shouldn’t be in sb conversation yet but I think the niners realistically could beat any team they play this year and could definitely make the playoffs and I think they deserve more respect than they are getting at this point.. you can’t forget about them just cuz there on the west coast and you don’t watch there games. East coast media bias is wild now a days you hear more about terrible teams like the jets than good teams like the 9ers

                                                  2 road wins to start the season . beat a team that was first in the Afc North last night. There division is plenty tough so u will see. I expect them to play good. Look how the Seahawks and rams their division counterparts played the same teams this year.

                                                  Yeah but look how they dominated those teams with 30+ points as we were supposed to. Except for Steelers game, we tried to give them that game but they didn't even want it so what can you do? Lol. Good teams find ways to win bad games.

                                                    @Antonio Valencia jr Yeah vs the 1-4 Steelers pat yourself on the back. What part of every team they've beat has a losing record do you not understand, of course, your ranked 2nd on offense playing against the 0-5 Bengals. It's bad when the best quarterback they've faced is Jameis Winston.

                                                  I love the media knee jerk reactions. This team wins a few games and they're great (Cowboys). Then they lose a couple and they stink (Cowboys). Whichever way the wind blows huh? 😆 4 games in the season and no one is a Superbowl contender.

                                                    @Trucker_Pete Yes I totally agree you. The media were in love with the Browns too until last night. Lol

                                                    @salamander337 Because it's the same thing no matter what team it is. I was just using the Cowboys as a recent example. After 3 wins the Cowboys were Superbowl contenders and after 2 losses they're not very good according to the media. Should the 49ers lose the next 2 games, it'll be the same thing. The talking heads change their opinions by the score of the game. It's pretty ridiculous.

                                                    We need to clean up our kicking game and hold onto he ball a bit better. We did a better job of not turning it over but we did put the ball on the ground twice...luckily we grabbed it.
