NFL Open Thread

First up today 49ers @ Panthers
Panthers moving the ball well so far. Game has been very chippy with flags, hard hits, and shoving after almost every play.

49ers are lucky to have 6 points.  The first field goal was the direct result of an atrocious uncessary roughness penalty while the ball was still in the air and had been tipped.

That's some nice goal line defense from San Francisco - big difference between 10-6 and 14-6 obviously. As a side note, Cam Newton is vehicle behind 176 of Carolina's 195 yards so far, air and ground. San Francisco, incidentally, has taken 24 plays to get 67 yards before this coming drive. 

For the late game - if you consider 4:40 PM late - Massey has Denver with a 75% projected win probability.

I was in awe of NE's rushing attack against the Colts, Brady threw just enough to move the chains, but they rode two RBs for 75% of their offensive production.

At some point the refs are going to have to throw a flag on the 49ers.  Boldin and Kaepernick have been yapping all game and getting away with it.  Refs are suppose to call it both ways and thus far they most definitely are not.

Boldin gets away with jawing the entire drive and they get a TD.  This needs to be the last post season game for this group of officials.

Harbaugh, despite hime being a Michigan guy, in my opinion has always been hard to like.  Boldin is constantly yapping.  Most people hate players like that.  Especially when the refs refuse to shut him up.

And then you have Aldon Smith, the one man crime wave who is facing at least I believe an 8 game suspension.

Kind of hard to like a team like that.

49ers are quickly becoming one of the most disliked teams in the league because Harbaugh, kapernick, Boldin and Aldon Smith.  They do way to much talking and seem to consistently get way to many calls. 

It will be nice watching Seattle hammer them next week.


January 12th, 2014 at 5:12 PM ^

Your post have been all kinds of fail today. Kaepernick doesn't talk at all but you make the judgement because of his celebration I bet. Boldin I agree needs to cool it, he was frustrating me today. Aldon rarely talks he just gets chippy when he's being chipped at. For Harbaugh the NFL needs more coaches like him and his actions are a showing of his competitiveness.

Where is the consistent calls? I can assure you that they don't get favorable calls, rewatch the game from last week. Watch all games in Seattle for the last 3 seasons and watch next week. It's like playing any sport against Wisconsin.

The only way Jim Harbaugh is good for the NFL is in the way people argue the Miami Heat are good for the NBA and that is as a vilain.  This is a Michigan blog and the majority of the opinions that I have seen expressed on hear over the last few years are decidely anti-Harbaugh.  So just imagine what the general public's opinion of him must be.

Oh and Kaepernick does talk and was doing it today.  For you to say the doesn't is a flat out lie.  You can't argue with game footage.
